That’s the kind of rhetoric that Nazis used about Jews. It’s the kind the KKK uses. It’s the kind of rhetoric the Hutu used about the Tutsi. It’s blood libel. It’s the kind of rhetoric that dehumanizes people.
What did you think it sounds like? This is the face of evil. It’s your neighbours, it’s your family, and it’s many of you. It’s not Thanos.
