Many Americans are afraid of what the U.S. would look like if Donald Trump won November's election. Would President Trump really ban Muslims — including American citizens — from crossing the border? Would Mexican immigrants have even more to worry about than they do now? Would he usher in an era of American fascism?

But in a nation in which Donald Trump has a huge number of riled-up, racist supporters, the question not enough people are seriously considering is: What happens if Trump loses?

... While we have witnessed many divisive campaigns and candidates before, we've never seen such a volatile, socially regressive political crusade as Trump's in modern American politics. If he loses, don't bet that all his angry, hate-filled, xenophobic supporters will go gently into that good night.

...Trump and his campaign rallies offer attendees something no other candidate does, to quite the same extent: an unfettered taste of good ol' fashioned bigotry....

...And now that Trump is advocating violence against protesters, especially those of color, rally attendees can enact the same type of violence we're more accustomed to seeing in grainy black-and-white films from the Sixties Civil Rights movement. The ability to say whatever the hell you want, violently lay hands on whoever disagrees with you, and publicly castigate those who are different from you are the unofficial selling points of a Trump rally, something no other GOP candidate can offer....

...After Trump announced his candidacy last June, in a speech calling Mexicans rapists and drug dealers, Trump supporters Scott and Steve Leader were leaving a Boston Red Sox game. They noticed a homeless brown man sleeping near a train station. Deciding that he must be one of the undocumented immigrants Donald Trump had bemoaned in his speech, they proceeded to beat him with a metal pole and then urinate on him.

When informed of the incident, Trump said, "I will say, the people that are following me are very passionate. They love this country, they want this country to be great again."...

...Trump is giving all these hateful people a voice. He's done damage to the country that cannot be undone by merely losing this election. People this committed to violence, disorder and authoritarian rule will not simply accept defeat...
