I don’t know the author, but someone coined a phrase I’ve found myself using all too often: “Not everyone who voted for trump is a racist, but every one of them decided that blatant racism wasn’t a deal breaker”. Same for his fascism, same for his misogyny, same for his sexual predation etc ad nauseum.
"If there's a Nazi at a table with 10 other people talking to them, you have a table with 11 Nazis" comes to mind
Fascism can fuck right off. People who are brainwashed into fascism need to be confronted and supported to break free from that bs; if they won’t or can’t, then society should shun them as their ideology is a mortal threat to any peaceful democracy.
Right on. I think I misread your earlier post as being more centrist, sorry.
