9. Many of them are convinced that they have an invisible majority.

They have a lot of resistance to accepting that most people really do not feel the way they do. They'd like think that we're all secretly agreeing with them but are intimidated by the scary PC police so we don't say so. Every time we deflate that balloon and let them know that they really are held in utter contempt, it demoralizes and weakens their movement. People with authoritarian leanings are also people who depend heavily on social acceptance and cultural support for their hatred and cruelty, or at least the illusion of it. We have to take that away from them.
