    Needless to say, the analysis is spot-on.

    And it’s not just Trump supporters who are authoritarian and attracted to authoritarian figures, that’s true of conservatives in general – the right’s love affair with Putin is yet further proof of that.

    Indeed, the authoritarianism of the right as represented by Trump is consistent with conservative reactionaryism, and conservatives’ fear of change, diversity, and dissent.

    Rightists see Trump as the agent of a conservative political agenda seeking to compel conformity and punish those who dare exercise their right to individual liberty – such as gay and transgender Americans.

    Conservative authoritarianism is a pathetic attempt to return America to an idealized past that never actually existed to begin with, manifesting as a threat to the rights and protected liberties of all Americans.

    Conservatives hostile to the facts expressed in the OP will resort to cowardly red herring fallacies and failed attempts to deflect, which are manifestations of their “hatred and aggression…toward those who either challenge in-group norms or lie outside their orbit." ibid

    If it were a thug, he'd gain votes.

    I think the analysis is spot on, and you can see it manifested in the responses by the very authoritarian rightwing posters here on USMB.

    They claim those things of Trump and his supporters while black lives matter and antifa, democrat groups, riot, attack political opponents with violence, and shut down the free speech of those they oppose.....the left wing fascists would be so cute if they weren't so freaking dangerous and eventually murderous....
