Most of them probably aren’t racists… although I bet more of them are than are willing to admit to it.
Most of them aren’t actually morons… although, really, is a moron smart enough to know that they are a moron?
Many of them claim to be very religious… although I suspect that they aren’t as good at it as they profess to be.
Most of them aren’t anti-women… although how any woman could still be standing behind that orange clown who freely admitted to walking into the changing rooms at the TEEN beauty pageants because, hey, he owned them, is a mystery to me.
They aren’t all bad people, but they are being led by a bad person. They have invested so much into him that to admit that they made a terrible mistake would call into question their own self-worth. This is how cults work. They get you to give away so much of yourself that you become unable to question why you are doing what you do, because that would be to admit that you made one mistake, and then kept compounding it… or doubling down, as Donald likes to call it. I could almost feel sorry for people who got themselves into that position, but I am too busy feeling sorry for the people who never asked for this to happen, and even tried to stop it.
It is, to once again quote the junior dictator-in-training, “Sad, just sad.”
