That’s fine. But I think his point is that people will attach themselves to anyone that pushes a narrative they believe in. And as soon as they have a narrative they disagree with they will cast them away.
How about anyone with a strong opinion off center? Anyone with a passionate belief that’s “too far” left or right we throw them in Guantanamo and forget about them. Now we just need to define “extreme”. How about any thoughts that the government doesn’t like? Yeah that’s good.
