7. The GOP base is shrinking due to age and demographic shifts; supremacists are a fringe group

So parse it out that way. The GOP, in pandering to the FOX bunch, is making itself irrelevant and must change or die. The GOP embraced too much ignorance and toxicity in an effort to gain more votes.

The GOP itself has become dangerous, not only because they gave us George W. Bush, but because in a last desperate effort to hang on to elected officialdom they have been and are engaging in the worst sort of gerrymandering, dirty tricks, voter suppression, and vote-counting fraud. They must be stopped.

White supremacists are and always have been a fringe hate group. Their numbers swell and shrink and swell again, but there are never vast numbers of them. What they lack in numbers they make up for in sheer rabid murderous hatefulness; they are dangerous and deserve to be treated as terrorists because that is what they are and always have been.
