Yes this exactly. There is an uptick of this. It’s almost as if there is an invisible catchphrase along the lines of: hate and fear is the way.
People are scared. Plain and simple, for whatever reason this often manifests in hateful selfish behavior.
Trumpsters gonna Trump, and the language of hate and fear is very comfortable for them already, add on additional stressors like COVID 19…there is gonna be a doubling down, not just on the Trumping, (clinging to everything Trump says or does as if it is the word of God from the heavens) but attacking (often times viciously!!!!) anyone who dares to disagree.
