The author is right. The synonym for Republican isn’t racist. It’s fascist, which is basically intersectional bigotry. They aren’t just racist, they’re also sexist, homophobic, transphobic, ableist, etc.

intersectional bigotry

I love this term and will certainly use it in the future!

I'm reminded of a Simpsons' episode where they said the motto for Fox News was "Not Racist but Number One with Racists." It's pretty accurate summation of both Fox News and the GOP. They've spent decades building their campaign strategies around the Southern Strategy BS. The Racist Idiot Vote is their traditional margin-of-victory vote. The GOP would be creamed if they didn't try to cater to that demographic.

I feel like I'm at the point where I no longer possess the energy to digest positions like this anymore. It's the same stuff over and over. Is there any benefit to rehashing the same discussions ad nauseum?

It really gives the impression that they have no fucking clue what they're talking about since dialogue never advances beyond the 101 state.
