The Trump years revealed a dark truth: The Republican Party is no longer committed to democracy. These charts tell the story.

Today’s Republicans really hate Democrats — and democracy

1) Trump’s supporters have embraced anti-democratic ideas



2) Republicans are embracing violence



. . .

5) The Republican Party is a global outlier — and not in a good way




. . .

8) The crucial impact of the right-wing media

1. why...

...would anyone vote for or support a political Party made up of people that can't tell fact from fiction, truth from lies or delusion from reality?

...and if these people are sincere, why would any patriotic American give up democracy to vote authoritarian or fascist?

...why would ANY patriotic American vote Nazi?

...why?...

3. Remember when they believed the contract with america was gonna make good big changes...

and they thought Tea Bagging a patriotic good thing (to each your own) and they think Trump is some genius.

Sorry they are "Morans" always have been and you don't need charts for most people to see it.

Fox just tells them what to do now to fight those evil liberals from giving them healthcare and decent jobs.
