the way I see it

Desi Trump supporters fall into three categories:

1. Naive - he wouldn't actually do what he said he would. That is just campaign rhetoric.

Congratulations on your privilege. Clearly you felt comfortable and safe enough to take this risk. Others, unfortunately are not that lucky. What more signs/information did you need? He spelt it out for you. Shouted it from the podium. Numerous times. There was both current information and historical precedent available to make your position untenable. But clearly, you din't care enough.

2. Selfish - but I am not Mexican or muslim or LGBT. I am one of the good ones.

Your position is not just morally bankrupt, its also naive. You really should have paid attention to history class when they taught you the "first they came for..." poem.

3. Bigoted - my bigotry aligns with his. We both hate the same people.

I don't even know what to say. May be its not too late. Try and be a better human being? Please?
