What part of this
is so hard for you?
1) Democrats are not calling for the killing of people of the opposing party; you've got that backwards.
2) The terms for Die-hard Trump supporters, which you list, do not all belong in the same basket. For example, from google dictionary:
relating to or supporting the policy of protecting the interests of native-born or established inhabitants against those of immigrants.
Is that an inaccurate description of Trump's political philosophy or that of his base?
As for denier, as well, if one denies that President Biden legitimately won our election, then it is nothing but a factual description, to refer to them as deniers. It is the same case with any well-established fact, with which there are those who refuse to accept it, despite lacking any reasonable objections, as with Climate-science deniers. To imply that referring to someone that way is tantamount to depersonalizing them, in order to facilitate their killing, I believe is called, "lie-mongering."
Trumpitard is something I've never heard, that is, it is solely an online term. I have only seen it here, but if the Moderators have seen it, it's been deleted. I do not condone it's use, as it is insulting; but I think that is the intention of those who do use it: to insult. And it cannot be credibly claimed that there are not equally-insulting terms for Democrats & others on the left, used by, in many cases, Trump supporters.
For people who get their view of reality from one man, the term cultist is appropriate. If one accepts claims that things that are manifestly true are not so, which Trump has been wont to make, and that things that are demonstrably untrue-- like that Covid is a hoax; or that massive election fraud changed the presidential election result-- are, nevertheless factual, based on nothing other than Trump's word, admiring his, "leadership," in a practically reverent way, then there is a strong argument for calling you a member of the Trump cult.
The most inflammatory of your monikers, fall into their own category: racist, bigots, haters, & white supremacists. Anyone who refers to all Trump supporters this way, may actually be stoking hatred against them, as you asserted (though I think your proposal that it is for the purpose of their extermination is wildly speculative, & wholly unsupported). The distinction that any responsible person, including the media, makes is that there is a large segment of Trump's base who have those proclivities. It is no different from the association of Democrats with black voters-- how many white supremacists supported Biden, versus Trump?
And, lastly, even when these confrontational terms are employed (unless it is by a psycho poster, on the left) it is not part of a call for violence against them; usually it comes in the hopeful scenario that these people can be de-programmed. Standard, also, are exhortations to, "call them out," for their behaviors & the ideas which they imply. The worst thing that people on the other side advocate is for criminal prosecution, and that is only for acts, not thoughts, and these are primarily targeted toward white supremacist militias, which are seen as a threat to domestic stability (including by the U.S. Intelligence agencies for Homeland Security, & the FBI). I would note that it is only from you and your, "side," that I have heard this divide referred to (other than metaphorically, i.e., to win over hearts & minds) as a, WAR.
Your little tRumpist soldiers are out of uniform...
they are not wearing their furry buffalo horn helmets and red and white face paint.
If you're talking about John Sullivan alias JaydenX, the Antifa and BLM's organizer who filmed himself destroying property inside the Capitol Bldg., he never wore a furry buffalo horn helmet.
If you get on this site, you'll see what he wore together with the rest of his Antifa pals. You'll also see the arm of the inside assassin who shot Ashli Babbitt.
Sullivan was paid $35,000 for his video by CNN and $35,000 by MSNBC, even though the going rate is $1,000. Nothing like supporting your friendly Antifa and BLM neighborhood group I say.
...has millions of followers that want Trump to be in charge.
Don't tell me you don't know how the free market works: supply & DEMAND.
February 15 was "Presidents Day" a federal holiday that honors all US Presidents.
You got that right. You know that Texas US Senator Trd Cruz went to Cancun, Mexico when many Texans were freezing and He'd rather take a vacation than help the people out. Trump would do the same thing. Cruz is a Trump follower and we should all know that. Crux ought to resign or catch hell.
Maybe there are some of those that still recognize Trump as leader and Biden is leader of us all. I can accept that.
And this is why the GOP cannot just ditch Trump, he commands an enthusiasm from the base which they just cannot match, it could be a great asset if managed correctly but spell their doom if they don't.
Peaceful and patriotic was a nice touch.
You're saying Biden is the leader of all, yet Kamala's the one making the phone calls? A little realism here. Enough of the insults and the 'in your face' idiocies. And then the Democrats wonder why people are cheering Trump.
Cruz should have known that the Democrats want Texas and Florida at all costs, and so the MSM would have made a big stink about anything they could find on him. He didn't think ahead. One good thing about the weather and the problems in Texas, it might stop the liberal Californians from moving there, now that they made a mess of their own state.
Anyway, so much for all the liberal hype about global warming. Now the talk is that we're heading into an ice age. According to some accounts, the ice in Greenland is now increasing at a phenomenal rate. Poor Russia, and they thought they would gain with global warming. But don't despair Vladimir, what with the receding seas, maybe you can march over the Bering strait and take back Alaska?
H E L P !
The Russians are coming! The Russians are coming!
Because Cruz is Republican in Texas, there probably won't be much they'll do about it. If Cruz was a Democrat, there would be more complaining and plenty of hell to catch.
No, not really.
I doubt anyone wonders about it. Loyalists will always cheer their leader / messiah. They'd even die for their leader.
He's more of a nationalist than a nativist, otherwise he'd be strongly pro-Indian.
You are mistaking nativist to apply only to the indigenous people of any place. The word is not meant to be thought of in such a strict sense, as the original ethnic group(s) of a given country. Note that the definition I'd posted, included the words, "native-born or established inhabitants." In the practical sense, I'm sure you are aware, when anyone, here or abroad, thinks of an, "American"-- i.e., someone from the U.S.A.-- they picture a white-skinned, English-speaker. By your tight definition, no one in Great Britian could be a nativist except those with Pict lineage-- whereas we know that most British are actually descended from the Germanic Tribes (Angles, Saxons, & Jutes) which invaded the island, more than a millennia ago. Yet the English certainly do not think of themselves as Germans, in a different location.
To emphasize the point, further, your misinterpretation would mean that the Israelites who resisted the Romans could not have been nativist, because they had displaced the former residents of their, "homeland," the Canaanites.
Nativist does not imply aboriginal.
Even white South Africans can be nativist.
Big win for Project Veritas against the New York Times.
The Good Guys Win One!
"Supporters Rally And Cheer Trump On President's Day"
Who cares what some damned fool cult followers have to say?
Trump betrayed us all. F*ck him and the horse he rode in on.
