There has been coverage for the last four years by mainstream media about how “deplorable” President Trump’s supporters are. My personal experience with them, even when I was a “Never-Trump” conservative, was that they’re passionate, yes, but overall they’re not abusive.
The same cannot be said about many of the Democratic supporters on social media who seem to be so easily triggered by criticism or jokes, they’re ready to kill anything or anyone that speaks ill of their chosen messiah. Beto O’Rourke’s camp is one of the worst, and I found that Jonah Goldberg seems to have had a similar experience.
Folks, I make jokes about Beto being a furry in the same way I make jokes about Ted Cruz being a serial killer or his dad killing Kennedy or Mitch McConnell being a coke dealer. The difference seems to be that Beto fans don’t have a sense of humor about it.

It’s one thing to be passionate. It’s another thing altogether to get threatening with others, especially over harmless jokes. Is Beto O’Rourke a “furry”? Probably not. But it’s funny nonetheless. His fans need to stand down before dying on that particular hill.
