New normal is harming us all

Should any of us be shocked, even surprised, by the recent spate of hate crimes? Many of us saw this coming 42 months ago as Donald Trump rode down the golden escalator. The hatred and vitriol have only been ratcheted up since.

This is the new normal under Trump, epitomized by the mania of those who worship him and his message of hate. God help us all and shalom to our Jewish friends in their time of grief.
