Is this what we've become?

I skimmed a few of the folks that commented with their FB pages and most look like they locked them down for the most part, but they do exist - and are from all over the country.

I'm sure we can reach and convert them during the midterms though!

and that is why they need to be embarrassed, belittled and mocked at every opportunity.

If you have the strength, and the will...brutalize these fuckers. They have ruined this country.

I can't really wish anything worse on these assholes than to be the vile, miserable scum that they obviously are...that said, if and when we restore democracy and human decency in this country, or whatever comes after it, I think the people that have supported this travesty should be held accountable.

"Myrna Loy"? Yeah, right. Here's a fun thing to do: Click through on the Facebook link to the page behind the comment. Much of the time, it's a faceless, historyless, fake profile with no posts, no friends, no nothing. I then circle back to the original thread and call out those posts. The first time I did it, I was nervous that I would be targeted by the troll behind the mask. It's never happened, though.

The other thing to do is test Facebook's new commitment to weeding out the trolls and the bots and report the offending profile.

I generally just avoid fb entirely, having always assumed it was basically just a massive data collection operation from the start...I guess the glut of Russian bots and "alt-right" trolls hasn't really improved the quality of discourse much over the past several years.

And it's also worth remembering that one of the main tactics in a luke-warm cyberwar or whatever it is we're in now is to foment discord amongst your enemies, so we shouldn't fall for that.

Nonetheless, I do think the scum who have supported this illegitimate and evil regime should be held to account.

But most of the others are actual accounts that you can find and are pretty "normal"

10. i think that's a big 10-4 from about 1/3 of the nation

about 1/3 of the nation have become - or always were - Nazis.
about 1/3 of the nation are progressives.
about 1/3 of the nation wavers uncertainly in the broad political landscape between the two.

meanwhile, M$M finds a way to limit participation in any policy debates to the first and third groups.

12. Convert them, no way

You have to understand, these are people left over from the stone age. You remember I'm sure seeing the cartoons of stone age men carrying a club in one hand and dragging a female by her hair behind them, well we still have them in age and time. They have small pea sized brains that will explode if given too much info.

There is no getting to them. They are trumps equal and only understand hate and revenge for a country that allowed a black man to be elected president. They belong in the cages.

I notice that people who spend a lot of time whining about Farrakhan tweets never have a word to say about this shit.
