Over the decades, I've said to people many times, You can't judge an idea by the words and actions of its stupidest or meanest adherents. For example, environmentalism has some seriously loopy believers. That does not mean that pumping CO2 into the air as if it has no effect or building precarious tailings ponds full of toxic sludge are defensible actions.
But regarding Ford Nation, Fuck That Shit. They are all stupid and/or mean, and all we can hope for is that their presently considerable numbers diminish over the years to come.
"This is Ford Nation, bitch" is what Ford Nation is. It's not a unfair caricature in any way.

I agree with this. They are all stupid and/or mean. Stupid people can smarten up though, and mean people can soften, which is what I hope happens to at least some of them.
