Short version, however, is that past genocides, ethnic cleansings, ideological cleansings, tend to follow similar steps:
- Demonize a class of people, and in the case of the United States this is white males, conservative Christians, or any others deemed to be "Deplorables".
- Promote that demonization into mainstream society.
- Normalize it to a point where pure hatred manifests (e.g., Black Lives Matter, Antifa).
- Create rallies and protests that will inflame the hatred.
- Then disarm the people so hated.
- Make lists and check them twice identifying the Deplorables.
- Round up the Deplorables or force them into cities (aka, ghettos).
- Torture, rape and/or kill the Deplorables and their families.
- Expand the imprisonment and killing to other segments of the population.
