Dietrich Bonhoeffer Had the Perfect Description of Trump Voters

Although he was executed by the Nazis in 1945, German theologian and Nazi opponent accurately described the type of person who would rally to Donald Trump's standard - he had experienced the German equivalent - and now comprises the base of the Republican Party.   For those "friends" who don't know, Bonhoeffer was a German Lutheran pastor, theologian, and anti-Nazi dissident who was known for his staunch resistance to the Nazi dictatorship. He was arrested in April 1943 by the Gestapo and imprisoned and later he was transferred to a Nazi concentration camp. He was executed by hanging on 9 April 1945 as the Nazi regime was collapsing.

One friend noted that "willfully ignorant" is less offensives that the term stupidity.  My response?  I am at the point where I'm not sweating it over offending those who want to take away my rights. Their ears and minds are closed to facts and reality.
