So, it was not surprising – at least to me – that those same individuals were the most ardent supporters of a man who is by the most generous analysis the slimiest crook who has ever run for public office, a bona fide criminal who now sits in the Oval Office.
That tragedy was not a surprise. It was not an accident. Those individuals have always adopted what’s egregiously evil, what’s morally wrong but their rationale to doing so has always appealed to those who share those ideals. As such, to destroy the fabric of our society, to remove all the guardrails of our democracy and yes to even shred the Constitution is justifiable in their eyes. They believe after all they are the bearer of moral values.
