It’s time to tone down the rhetoric. The GOP is not a Nazi party. Several statements from presidential hopeful frontrunners do smack of anti-democratic sentiments; some are positively frightening.
But the Republican Party is not a fascist party. While extremists have taken ahold in ways not imaginable just a few years ago, one hopes that this is a temporary aberration and the party will return to reason.
But heightened rhetoric, such as is now common on social media, doesn’t lead to a saner political climate. It simply joins the chorus of extremism of which there already has been too much.
Fight the fight but fight it in good faith by organizing, presenting a better plan and using the ballot box.
