Amnesty International says human rights are at risk around the world because of a growing atmosphere of hatred and fear; specifically the narrative being spouted by right wing and alt right groups.
In its annual report, the rights group says the narrative has come down to “them against us” and hasn’t been heard since the 1930s.  The London-based organization has released its annual report on the state of human rights around the world and says in 2016 we have seen world leaders begin to essentially scapegoat some of the most vulnerable communities.The report takes aim at Donald Trump, saying his “poisonous campaign rhetoric exemplifies a global trend towards angrier and more divisive politics.”   The human rights group cites Trump’s recent executive order that prohibited citizens of seven majority Muslim countries from traveling to the U.S. as an example of a policy Amnesty is worried will be repeated elsewhere.
