I've been exploring right twitter hate groups for almost a year now - here's something I've noticed: no matter the type of bigotry, alt right hate groups always seems to work the same way. A quick thread.
First take an entire people, concept, ideology, etc. that's fairly complex / diverse, and find ONE aspect you dislike, fear, can ridicule, or feel superior to. This is often a person chosen to represent an entire group, one detail that can be manipulated to inspire fear / hate...
...or one aspect you can reduce a complex situation down to, in order to push your narrative. Second, take your singular example, now a stand in for that group at large, and disseminate it to your own group to ridicule, hate, get enraged at, or pity.
