Donald Trump explained
Yep. Part of his appeal is that liberalism has betrayed its inner Soviet when it comes to dealing with challenges to its dogmas. In addition to what we noticed a while ago, that the growing hatred and dismissal for those who do not conform to liberalism, has pushed people to follow Trump in a way - not to invoke Godwin - that is somewhat reminiscent of Germany in the late 20s. That is not to say Trump is Hitler. But appeals to a large, disaffected part of the population who see the lies of the modern trend and feel the sting of disdain, seems to work.
