I hear you, Mark. I’m not advising that we relax vigilance or normalize bad behavior, just that we don’t amplify hate with hate. While Trump himself spews hate, and there is an element among his followers who responded to that, I do believe that most of his supporters can still be brought to stand up against him. But not if we demonize them and positions harden.
