They're the real snowflakes

Of course. They assume that because they are dick and, that everyone else must be too.

Except they're not unique, just delicate and when enough gather together they can damage important infrastructure.

Always have been.

Look, he's no fascist. He's just a strong leader who's always right, doesn't accept 'no' for an answer, makes his own rules, demands absolute loyalty and calls himself not only a patriot, but a nationalist who happens to be white...

Sure he jokes about being a dictator, but only because he's able to see the good in so many of them. Also it would only be on first day in office, since he loves democracy, stable democracy, like in the People's Republic of China or Russia, where a strong leader can be elected more than just twice.

Boy o boy, people not understanding this will give future historians quite a head scratcher.

Who will just do whatever you tell them to, and not ask too many questions.

Swatting the guy's mother. That's really, really low but that is where they are.
