Just days after Trump's electoral victory, nearly every mainstream US media outlet ran segments and feature stories about a conference by the National Policy Institute, in which around 100 people celebrated Trump's win. During that conference, infamous white supremacist Richard Spencer led chants of "Hail Trump!" as the audience rose to its feet, making Nazi-like salutes.
That same night, around 450 people crowded into a small hall in Brooklyn to attend a talk about labour struggles hosted by Jacobin. "It's not like there aren't socialist figures that the media could be shining their light on; they are making a decision not to," Kilpatrick said.
