Late last week, my friend John Stoehr made a daring argument:
“white evangelical Christian support for Donald Trump isn’t rooted in hypocrisy, contradiction or merely straying from the straight and narrow,” he said. “The reason they support a fascist president is simple: They’re sadists.”

Aside from a general willingness to ignore facts unless they support the Mario Mushroom President, there's an inherent cruelty in these same supporters or cultists.
In the years since Donald Trump took ofice as President of the United States, he has often used incendiary language when discussing immigrants, Muslims and various other groups. Hate crimes have been on the rise in the US since 2015, and a recent review by ABC News found Trump has been invoked in at least 36 criminal cases of violent acts, threats or allegations of assault.
But it has been difficult to quantify the extent to which his language has really inspired or triggered such crimes. Now a study has found that people who strongly identify with Trump say they are more willing to commit violence against immigrants.
This is a study based on data and facts so no doubt the usual Cult 45 members will arrive in droves to shout their ignorance because they don't like data and facts.
Trump supporters more willing to commit violence, check.
In one scenario, respondents were told to imagine that a law had been passed outlawing Islamic cultural organisations, and then asked how likely they would be to report members of such organisations to the police, support the use of physical force to find them, and even personally use physical force to track down and detain them.
People whose identities were more fused with Trump were more likely to say they were willing to commit violence in these scenarios.
More willing to persecute immigrants, check.
In similarly designed surveys, Kunst and his team found that those fused with Trump were also more willing to persecute Iranians and immigrants.
This fusion was measured by asking people to rank how strongly they agreed with several statements, including “I am one with Donald Trump”. Read more:
I can't wait for all the rational supporters to flood in and debate the data in a calm and rational fashion.
Haha, just joking, I'm sure the insults and ad-homs will be fast and furious
