It didn't surprise me at all that Trump's enemies refer to him as a fascist and Nazi and racist and sexist - and an evil monster who is going to start a nuclear war! If you have enemies you have to create an exaggerated evil profile of them (look how those evil powerful Russians interfered with our elections and threw the election to Trump!). Just exaggerate how evil and monstrous they are even if they're not evil and monstrous at all and watch how many people fall for it.
No one makes enemies of the Amish or the Salvation Army.
You can't make an enemy of someone who is weak or harmless. You have to turn them into an evil, powerful monster hellbent on destroying you! It's the archetype of the horror story - good attacked by evil!
I've met a couple of black men who think the Klan still exists and one blamed his failures in life on them. I also knew a religious fanatic, rabidly anti-Catholic, who thought the Pope had sent assassins to kill him because he was writing a book exposing the evil of the Church. He, not surprisingly, was a loser. A demented one.
Look at the way some deluded people refer to Black-Run America (what are they going to do when Obama leaves office?) or how some refer to ZOG (Zionist-Occupied Government) or even believe Jews rule the world.
I suppose some people have to find someone to blame their problems on. It is, after all, the first defense of children - projection, scapegoating, call it what you will. "All these problems are your fault!"
I read an article recently how one woman didn't want to raise boys in "Trump's America." I thought, good thing because you'd make a lousy mother anyway. Honestly, "Trump's America"? What astonishing power Trump has to change the entire county so fast! And he's not even President yet! And of course this crazy woman was blaming everything on him. "It's not my fault! I'm innocent! It's someone else's fault!"
Remember the way that the dimbulb Duyba Shrub claimed Saddam Hussein had Weapons of Mass Destruction and was going to nuke the U.S.? The fact that none of it was true is irrelevant. Gotta exaggerate the evil qualities of some third-rate tinhorn dictator (whose country had a GNP of one billion)! Claim he's going to denonate an atomic bomb in the U.S. and you can start a war to rub out your enemies before they rub you out!
Paranoia must be inborn in a lot of people. Just claim some monsters are after them and just them throw hissy fits.
Good thing I have a conscience because if I didn't I could probably cause all kinds of trouble.
