Trump is evil. Period. Those who can't see that will need to find their conscience first His supporters run the gamut from a neo-Nazi level of evil to simple ignorance.
We've all seen and heard from the worst of them. They delight in cruelty and in the suffering of people they hate, calling them "vermin" and "communists" or random racist slurs.
This is why I use the term evil for such sociopaths. They chose that path and refuse to consider any fact that Trump doesn't want them to know.
1/6 proved that many of them would KILL and DIE for Trump and his lies. These are the evil ones.
It truly is a cult of evil, and they ARE the greatest domestic threat to our democratic republic. They scorn empathy and compassion as "woke" and "weakness". They hate and fear any educator who teaches the history of slavery and racism. They despise their fellow Americans in the LGBTQ community. We’ve seen their unrestrained rabid hate and mockery for progressives and democrats. We need to look no further than to the racists and bigots at Trump rallies, blogs like WYD, and in our comment threads.
Nazis are evil. Fascists are evil. MAGA extremists are evil. They are all deluded, deranged, and hostile to democracy, decency, and equality.
Yes, many Trump supporters are just dupes, too stupid or gullible to know better, but they still MADE their choice to close their hearts and minds to the truth. And they vote.
I have no doubt that many Trump VOTERS are not like the cruel thugs we saw on 1/6/21.
Like most of us, they are usually kind to their family, even if they might not vote like they do. They may even like them if they share their religious beliefs. They might show courtesy to strangers or people who don’t look like them. They may grudgingly respect veterans who don't vote like they do. They haven’t surrendered their sense of basic human decency, but might have listened to too much FOX® in lieu of more credible news sources.
But look how far too many of them act towards the rest of us. The fanatics essentially worship Trump and embrace all his hate rhetoric and lies as gospel.
Again, this is NOT all Trump voters. Some hold their nose as they mark their ballot. They don’t go as far as the others in their hate and aggression. They are misguided, but not evil.
But a Nazi is a Nazi, no matter the IQ. The same goes for Q-Anon sub-level of the cult, along with the other MAGA extremists who ARE ignorant bigots, racists, white nationalists, and neo-Nazis. The evil ones are either sociopaths from the start or have simply surrendered what was left of their conscience and mind to Trump.
Trump is evil. Trumpism is evil. Millions of his followers
are evil. Together they are poisoning the minds of Americans with hate and lies while ripping out the heart of our democratic republic.
