​I have heard quite a few recriminative statements from some in the aftermath of the election.  One of the most disturbing goes something like this: “All of you Trump supporters are going to have own up to the racist, misogynist and homophobe you have elected.” 

Frankly, statements like this are the reason why millions voted for Trump, because this sort of hectoring language is not very far from “To the Gulag with you!”  Some Trump supporters may lack undergraduate and graduate degrees, but they do recognize authoritarian language when they hear it.
