Canadian TV Nails the U.S. Election: ‘This Is White Supremacy’s Last Stand’

Oh, Canada. During its coverage of last night’s presidential election results, the CBC hosted some of the most incisive bits of political commentary. In these two widely shared clips, commentator Danielle Moodie-Mills discussed Trump’s rise in the electoral college and what she thought Hillary Clinton should say in her concession speech. “I do not believe that this is people saying, I couldn’t possibly have a woman in this role. This is so much bigger than that. This is about, and I will say this because I have literally nothing left to lose tonight, this is literally white supremacy’s last stand in America. This is it. This is what this looks like,” she said. “This was hatred on a level that we have not seen since Jim Crow. We underestimated as Americans how deep our hatred was of ‘the other.’”

And what does she want to hear from Hillary Clinton? “I would rather Hillary Clinton stand up and say, ‘I am disappointed greatly in America right now. I thought we were better than this.’”
