I can tolerate a very wide range of political beliefs, but when a group repeatedly crosses the line from belief into hurting or killing lots of innocent people, that's it. They are no longer political but simply evil. I can even understand extreme Islam, but Al Queda, Boko Haram, etc. deserve annihilation because of their acts. Joining an organization with a history of genocide like the KKK should bring a death sentence.

If we [Americans] don't make this a widely understood policy, it just tells the worst of us that it's safe to express their worst sides. Joining the Nazis or KKK should be dangerous to your health and safety.

Sounds like Republicans to me. I have no tolerance for any of them.
Racism disgusts me.

I am seeing fewer distinctions between the Republican party and the Nazi party. That is alarming.

How interesting...Republicans keep insisting that Hitler was a liberal and a socialist but for some strange reason, Nazis keep running for office as Republicans...and WINNING!
The GOP is terrified.
Why don't Republicans just start telling these people that they should run as Democrats? After all, it's their pet theory, isn't it?

The very thin veil between outright racists and the Republican party is getting more tattered by the day.

Donald Trump was right. They probably are all tired of so much winning....Just as we're getting tired of all this losing.
