It took four days of unrepentant hate, bigotry, and fear mongering that culminated with Donald Trump’s noxious coronation speech in Cleveland for some in the American news media to finally concede that the Republican Party in 2016 is the United States’ largest white identity organization.

It’s not often you see a major-party presidential candidate invite a foreign power to commit espionage on an American public official, but that’s what we witnessed today as Donald Trump explicitly encouraged Russia to hack Hillary Clinton and release her emails.
At his news conference earlier this morning, Trump addressed the hacking of the Democratic National Committee’s email servers and the growing consensus pointing towards Russian culpability, and he just flat-out called on the Russian government to go ahead and hack his main rival for the presidency:
If it is Russia, which it’s probably not, nobody knows who it is.
The DNC hack may or may not have been a Russian attempt to help Donald Trump. That’s a charge that needs more evidence. However, when it comes to Julian Assange's motives in releasing the information through Wikileaks, there’s no question of his goals.
Six weeks before the anti-secrecy organization WikiLeaks published an archive of hacked Democratic National Committee emails ahead of the Democratic convention, the organization’s founder, Julian Assange, foreshadowed the release — and made it clear that he hoped to harm Hillary Clinton’s chances of winning the presidency.
In an interview, Assange refused to say that he supported Donald Trump, but when it comes to Hillary, he’s adamant in his desire to harm her campaign
He also suggested that he not only opposed her candidacy on policy grounds, but also saw her as a personal foe.
Assange has also indicated that more material is on the way concerning the elections—information that comes with an agenda.
Even though Trump has actively campaigned on the idea of weakening the First Amendment to make it easier to go after journalists, and the Republican candidate has called for “tougher” action in the Middle East, Assange seems unconcerned:
Perhaps the most shocking thing Donald Trump said at his latest rambling, incoherent press conference was that he wants Russia to hack into Hillary Clinton’s personal emails from her time as secretary of State. He was ostensibly denying that he had any knowledge of Russia having hacked the Democratic National Convention … but he denied it by saying he hoped Russia would do more and worse.
But it would be interesting to see. I will tell you this. Russia, if you're listening, I hope you're able to find the 30,000 e-mails that are missing. I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press. Let's see if that happens.
Later, asked by NBC’s Katy Tur if he had “any qualms about asking a foreign government, Russia, China, anybody, to interfere, to hack into a system of anybody in this country,” Trump said “They probably have them.
One of the most powerful moments in a Democratic National Convention that’s been filled with powerful moments was Tuesday night, when the “Mothers of the Movement” appeared. Nine women who have lost children to police action or gun violence filled the stage, with three—Geneva Reed-Veal, mother of Sandra Bland; Lucia McBath, mother of Jordan Davis; and Sybrina Fulton, mother of Trayvon Martin—speaking.
“You don’t stop being a mom when your child dies.
The Democratic Party made history on Tuesday night by nominating Sec. Hillary Clinton for president. What follows is a sampling of how history was reported by print newspaper front pages from across the country.
