Re: “'Hostiles' delivers a gripping Western tale of the clash between Native Americans and their conquerors

This film is set in 1892, a time when the Indian wars were over, but there's a scene where a Commanche war party massacres a settler family, something that no longer occurred in the 1890's.. The last bands of hostile Commanches surrendered incrementally through the 1870's & early 1880's & by the end of that decade, the herds of bison had been all but exterminated & the nomadic warrior tribes that depended on them for sustenance were starved into submission . Well before 1892, the f the last holdouts had laid down their arms & were placed on reservations. Hence, the movie starts out with a historical error.

Re: “A systemic problem

Wechter is an unabashed social Darwinist , neo-Nazi & admirer of the alt-right. His misogyny comes natural to him, so no one should be shocked by what he says. Anyhow, Barbie Clark's letter is spot -on.

Re: “Ceding power to fascism

Trump is certainly a fascist, a con man, a serial liar & all around amoral, disgusting scumbag, but his legions of proudly stupid supporters are a real existential threat to this nation & to the world. Hitler did not arise in a vacuum & he did not personally construct a death camp or slaughter millions of innocent people. No, it took millions of enablers; active perpetrators, eager collaborators, millions more complacent "good" Germans & other Europeans who remained passive or ambivalent about the horror engulfing the world at the time to carry out the Holocaust & launch a global war. Likewise, Trump would still be a smarmy tabloid TV celebrity if it weren't for hoards of drooling redneck idiots & depraved billionaire slimeballs who swept him him into office. Evil thrives because a lot of horrible people, driven by base passions ,empower dictators & support them. No one man has supernatural power to do terrible damage. It takes many willing hands , hearts minds to accomplish that.

Re: “How is it possible for Republicans to still support Trump?

it's because the republican party is a nihilistic cult devoted to radical evil.
