I don’t know if American democracy will survive this latest dance with the devil, but I do believe it still can. Right-wing extremists are nothing new there. Neither are armed militias, or evangelical zealots, or corrupt politicians. All of these things have always been part of the fabric of American society, yet democracy has always survived them. The final chapter is yet to be written.
But they didn't have social media available before to spread their message. America is way too far gone. There is no coming back.
