The term "Silent Majority" was coined by Richard Nixon in a speech, Nov 3, 1969, to justify the break of his campaign promise to end the Vietnam War, as he called on his silent majority to support his decision to continue the war. 500,00 protesters gathered at the Washington Memorial Nov 15. Nixon, confident in his support, informed the press he was watching a football game. It was a myth then just as it is now. The President Elect never had a silent majority, he had an immensely vocal minority. We are the silent majority, the silenced majority, made silent Nov 8, 2016, made more silent and invisible daily. We must be silent no longer.
