They think it is all good because right now they are not coming after them...idiots

Is it that they are shallow thinkers who are unable to learn the lessons from history?
Is it that they think they are something special that would be immune to the worst excesses of how bad things could get if trump and his enablers get their way?
Is it that their hatred runs so deep that they don’t care about their loss of freedoms as long as the ‘other’ gets it worse?

What they don't get is:

‘’You can't live in a constitutional republic if you allow the government to act like a police state.You can't claim to value freedom if you allow the government to operate like a dictatorship.You can't expect to have your rights respected if you allow the government to treat whomever it pleases with disrespect and a utter disregard for the rule of law.” John W. Whitehead

They will only realise how utterly wrong they have been, when they come knock knock knocking on their doors… and by then it will be far too late to anything about it. With Russian interference a continuous threat to the constitution and the republicans selling their souls for 30 pieces of silver eroding the very basis of the formation of America those that support them would do well to remember that:

''From the Soviet gulag to the Nazi concentration camps and the killing fields of Cambodia, history teaches that granting the state legal authority to kill innocent individuals has dreadful consequences.'' Pete du Pont

We all know where explicit permission to ignore the rule of law can lead. So for trumpers, it may not be today, or tomorrow, but at some point they will also turn on them, if these stealers of democracy are allowed to continue to follow their destructive path.

1. I'm afraid that some Americans still won't get it.

I think that some Americans are dumber than the Russian people, dumber than the German people, dumber than the Cambodian people.

I think that some Americans will become homeless, will go to prison camps, will go to their graves and blame Obama or Hillary.

I posted a piece on a small local right wing web site explaining how Trump's tax cuts for them are going to expire in 2024 while corporate and rich people's taxes are permanent. They blamed Democrats in Congress.

2. These people are just plain unreachable.

It's been said on DU over and over again, but our energies are wasted trying to inform anyone who is still a trump supporter. Better we put those energies into fighting the good fight and being on the right side of history.

5. The tRump supporters think they are immune to any harm coming to them. Even climate change, which

will envelop them just as easily as the "never tRumpers". Their guns, gated communities, religion, and money won't protect them from the effect of global warming. It certainly won't immune their children and grandchildren.
