Following Sarah Palin’s endorsement Tuesday of Donald Trump, GOP consultant Rick Wilson, who is not mad, but trolling, described members of the American “alt right” (which is basically code for white supremacists) as “mostly childless single men who masturbate to anime.”

The point was to discredit them as a category, bereft of any “real” political significance. Which is probably true! And, if it is, may explain, in part, why they are such psychopaths. However, it is also a discredit to those who masturbate to anime.
