I was hoping LK would reveal his motivations.
What many supporters of Trump and Farage seem to share is a desire to return to the days when it was ok to be publicly and unapologetically racist. Cancel culture, PC, ‘woke-ism’, BLM… they are basically all about saying ‘don’t be racist’, which makes them the current enemy.
Farage and Trump are masters at stoking it, at giving people a green light to be gross and indecent. They share a strategy of lying, lying and lying again, in order to get their message across. And from this board to the White House, via Downing Street, we see people willing to believe in total, absolute and utter nonsense.
How and why this has come about is discussed on other threads. But, it’s yet another example of how politics comes close to religion, and how some folk are prone to fanatically believing in the totally crackpot ideas of one or both, without any proof at all.
In consequence, the USA, once a totem of Christian values, of peace and tolerance, has now become petri dish of fascism.
