1/ The reaction to my CNN appearance today is perfectly telling.

The whole "politically-incorrect tough-talking-dick-swinging-fuck-your feelings-snowflake-melter" crowd is really comprised of the most brittle, fragile, insecure, weak-ass punks imaginable.
2/ The overt racial animus in many of Trump's base is virulent, widespread, readily detectable in surveys, and manifested through their orange avatar when he calls for restrictions on immigration from shithole countries, etc.
3/ They favor restrictions on legal immigration. They dehumanize asylum seekers, refugees, and even those here from foreign nations with legal status. They embraced the family separation policy with glee until Trump discovered it was blowing up in his face.
4/ their fantasies of mass deportations, impenetrable walls, and an all-powerful State seeking out those here illegally is a statist as it is repellent.

My words, to use their favorite parlance, left them triggered.

As my grandmother used to say, "the cut hog squeals loudest."
5/ Many of the ranterd in my timeline are furious that I called them racist.

Oddly, I didn't use that word.

They simply filled in the blank in their heads, which tells you quite a lot.
