MAGAts And The 10 Stages of Genocide
Why Do They Refer To Republicans As MAGAts?
MAGA stands for Make America Great Again. Obviously, concerning the drama triangle, the left views Trump as a “persecutor.” Not surprisingly, people who don’t like Trump decided on the meaning of this slogan for him. We used to give people the benefit of the doubt or ask specifically, “What do you mean by that?” We used to care about finding out what other people meant. Now, people ascribe the worst-possible meaning to anything a “persecutor” says.
They See Trump As Racist
Because they view him as a “persecutor” who is “racist” they will ascribe racist beliefs to the slogan he uses. So, to them, it means going back to a time when there was more white supremacy. They don’t realize that they’re white supremacists.
When Was America Great?
They think, “When was America great?” They are stuck in the drama triangle with the narrative that America is a racist country and always was. They cannot admit there was something great about America or how it was founded. If they admitted anything could be great about America in the past then it would ruin their victim narrative of today. Because the drama triangle roles are co-dependent, eviscerating the victim narrative also means the democrats can’t play “Saviors” any longer.
By the way, suggesting that America was great (using the past tense) means it’s not now, which helps Trump play a Savior role with the Democrats as “Persecutors” who ruined the country. Politics, no matter what side, are heavily involved in the drama triangle, even if Democrats seem better at it.
Now that Trump is no longer the president, they needed someone to play “Persecutor” for him while Biden was in office. They decided to shift their hate from the Trump scapegoat onto every single person who voted for Trump. They believe only racists could vote for a racist President, for instance. Of course, if that were true what would say about the people voting for Biden who molested children on camera?
No, not everyone who votes for a president believes in the exact same things or has the same morals. There will be some overlap or they wouldn’t feel drawn to one over the other. But it doesn’t automatically mean every voter knows or believes their preferred President did whatever it is.
Now the Republicans Are the Scapegoat
So, now, they believe it’s not just Trump who is evil, but those who voted for him. They see these Republicans as “the enemy.” They either fear or hate them. I don’t believe the fears are founded. I think it’s a mass formation psychosis. They had free-floating fear and the media just pointed them to Republicans as the problem. But, regardless of why it happened, it happened.
Nazi Propaganda Poster
Comparing your political opponents to detested creatures is not new. The Nazis “depicted Jews, political opponents, and others as parasites that threatened the overall health of the so-called "Volksgemeinschaft" (German racial community).” Propaganda Poster: “Jews Are Lice: They Cause Typhus”
Because dehumanization of your political enemies can lead to genocide, it’s important to pay attention when you see it happen around you.
