I understand being angry at liberals and leftists. But when you are willing to first tolerate, and then applaud open appeals to racism to get back at them, you are walking down a very dangerous path, the path trod by Hitler and his German supporters.
Make no mistake about it, those who continue to support Trump no matter what he says or does because it pisses off the “snowflakes” and the “libtards” are not going to be very happy where this all ends up. Everybody loses when a society declares war on its most vulnerable people. Including those who think they were going to be immune to the consequences
Remember: Hitler said that everything he did, including the death camps and killing squads, was necessary to “Fight Communism.”
As for the broader consequences, including its impact on those who supported Hitler: When WW2 ended, there wasn’t a blade of grass left in the Tiergarten, Berlin’s largest park, because every piece of vegetation had been eaten by the starving people of that city.
