19. who said, "the line between voting for a bigot and being one is so fine as to be invisible"?

might have been someone else here on du, not sure.

it's certainly accurate. there are many different forms of bigotry, and just because you don't go around repeating donnie's bigoted statements doesn't mean you're not a bigot. and giving him a free pass straight to the white house despite knowing what a bigot he is certainly doesn't fit neatly into the not being a bigot category, does it?

yeah, i know plenty of republicans who don't like the bigotry but always vote republican because tax cuts or strong america or blah, blah, blah. but to do so knowing he's an overt bigot, that i have a problem with. at what point do you turn a blind eye to it? hell, at what point do you pretend that voting for a bigot is merely turning a blind eye toward it and not affirmatively endorsing it?


that said, *calling* them bigots isn't effective at changing their minds or their votes. but that's another topic entirely....
