    “To a significant extent, the Republican base does have elements that are animated by every type of right-wing bigotry imaginable

    • That’s actually a cogent observation. All our country’s brands of right-wing bigotry are based on a narrative of a superior past when “our kind” had a monopoly on power. The ones who are honest about demanding a restored monopoly work in dark places where corporate media can be excused for ignoring them, but they lay the groundwork for extremist networks, which then create more mainstream covers that can be safely courted by the GOP, until it makes their currently-stated views socially acceptable and moved the country to the right. Then the cycle starts again.

      But really, what libertarians, neo-Confederates, theocrats and imperialists share is a love for ONLY that part of the past that was shockingly unequal. No nostalgia for the Amish, who undeniably were conservative. It’s all about the values of those ancestors who just happened to be genociders and slavers and exploiters, yet they deny that those crimes were intrinsic to their success. It was all just a misunderstanding, see, we won’t bring back slavery once the federal government is destroyed, sure.
