Jaby Gamer: Hmm. I often find your essays insightful. This is not one of those. “Everyone who disagrees with me is Hitler.” I get that you’re upset, but that’s not a way to learn new things.
I never said that. Of course it’s not true that everyone who disagrees with me is Hitler.
I am reporting to you on everyone I know who voted for Trump. That is all I am doing. Now, my sample may very well be biased or selected in some way. I have no idea. I gather most Trump supporters are not overt fascists, but let’s get real. The man ran on an openly fascist platform. So even if Trumpsters were not overtly or self-identifyingly fascist (and most are probably not), nevertheless, these “non-fascists just voted for an out and out fascist. So what is there to say about that?
The people I know who voted for Trump:
They were all rightwingers, 100%. I know one leftwinger who voted Trump, but he calls himself a “leftwing fascist,” and he’s a White nationalist. Ok? I gather that’s as left as they get.
They were all serious racists, except one, but he is an MRA, so he’s sexist as Hell.
Most people I know who supported Trump were either White nationalists or something along those lines. At the very least, they were highly racist White people. Most of them were Alt Right supporters. And yes, most of them were fascists of one sort of another, and quite a few of them seemed way too Nazi-leaning for comfort.
Now look, I have no idea if that is most of his supporters. I gather it’s not. I’m just reporting to you on the people I know who voted for him.
- Racists or sexists.
- Mostly fash or one sort or another and quite a few Nazi types.
If any of the rest of you know people who voted Trump, I urge to report in so we can get some variability with these reports.
