I can't be nice about it anymore

Lately I have read some posts talking about how we shouldn't make fun of or berate republicans for supporting insurrectionists like TFG Drump. I am sorry, for me this is no longer possible. Anyone that keeps supporting a fool who has done everything to ruin our democracy, weaken our intelligence agencies and military, and puts citizens in danger just for doing their jobs has all screws loose or no brains at all and they should be held to account for this. I am speaking about the idiotic, moronic buffoons that show up to Drump rallies and those in our Congress who still support this narcissistic asshole's seditious behavior. Don't expect me to be nice or feel any kinship with these people - ever! They no longer have the right to call themselves Americans. If they want war, I'm ready for them. Bring on all your biscuit ab soldiers and armchair generals that sit and listen to and watch right wing shitheads who think they can enrich themselves by spewing seditious crap all over the airwaves. I have had it. Anyone who thinks they will change these morons by singing Kumbaya are deluding themselves. The situation has just gotten continually worse for the last forty years and as a result we are very close to a fascist state unless some of these people look in the mirror and recognize the ugly person they have become. Drump flags and nazi flags are now interchangeable and someone needs to make them realize it.

When you present them with verifiable facts they don’t want to hear or believe you.

Ignorance is not bliss because one day it will it will end up biting you in the ass!

3. We need to get back to socially shaming and shunning the people you're describing...

Make them unemployable and social outcasts.

Frankly, I gave up trying to be friends with any trumpists many moons ago.

It is just not worth it.

4. I quit as president (and member) of a club because there were just too many mouthing-off maggots and only a couple of us humans.

Not seriously. I just thought this was funny symmetry given the other debate going on in GD.

It's irritating to constantly have to set others "straight"
Not so much regarding everyday life, but pure data.
"Did you know that more people are crossing the border way more than..etc"
Me/you: Well, that's actually not true if you count...etc..
"Yeah, well, Trump had more people at work and etc....
Me/you: I beg to differ. The national workload data shows that..etc..
Again, it's like having a 3 year old who happens to be wrong on many subjects.
If it's your child..so be it. You love them.
With the Republicans, I barely put-up with them.

I've tried to cut most of those people out of my life. I stopped fishing years ago because so many of those folks were rabid right wingers. Trump is a traitor, and anyone who supports a traitor is also a traitor as far as I'm concerned. I no longer have patience for willful ignorance. These folks have little integrity. That's just my humble opinion.
