And as long as Trump thinks he's personally "winning" he doesn't care if he leaves the entire country in a smoldering ash ruin. He has signaled that he and the GOP are relying on an even more overt and blunt racist, misogynistic and xenophobic strategy than he used in the campaign of 2016.

There is little risk for them to admit it, especially in the House since they have gerrymandered their way into permanent power in much of the country.
If you want to beat on the other team then great, be my guest.

But I don't like gerrymandering and people that blindly think it's only (or just mostly) the other guys doing it are part of the problem.

That would be you. Apparently you're ok with gerrymandering, just not when the R's are doing it?

And it's never been only about same-sex marriage or abortion. It's the very idea of "white Christian America" and preserving it against what they see to be an antagonistic left.
It just goes to show how much hate the conservatives have for a group of people whose desire to get legally married really is just about being treated equally before the law, as in civil marriage. Hate begets hate. To say that trumpís hate is not equal to conservative hate is to make excuses for these aresholes.

Default Trump message is violent to its core.

And his supporters love him for it.

Trump will continue to be racist and hateful because it makes his crowd cheer wildly! He knows how to get a group excited and riled up, I’ll give him that, and it’s because he has experience in reality shows, but that’s not what this country needs.

In 2016 it was Hillary, people from south of the border, elitists (which is ironic because Trump is the very definition of elitism), and the media. Now it is the squad. And Silicon Valley. And the Fed when it won't lower interest rates. And many of our former allies.

The Republican party never had hate as an element of their platform; they never have gone out of their way for disadvantaged people but they never hated them like Trump does. I am not sure America has ever had a political climate in it that was so filled with pure hatred like this one. It is really sad that this is what America has come to be.
You are correct.

Hate is synonymous with fear.

I have said on CD many times that Tr*** operates from a position of fear, which is very dangerous.

ďIn the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friendsĒ

That is why those who voted for him, while they say they were just "picking the lesser of two evils", their silence in holding their nose and voting anyway is more hurtful and more shocking than those who actually wore MAGA hats and went to racist marches. We already knew we should fear the latter, but never knew we'd have to fear the former.
