Bill Clinton 1992-- rightwing revenge and conspiracy theory demons
George W. Bush 2000-- demons of war and death
Barack Obama 2008-- demons of racism
Donald Trump 2016-- demons of sexual abuse
Not that each kind of demon didn't exist previously, but that each demon flourished after that election. And after each new election, the previous demons kept growing as new demons were added; all these demons are still floating out in the American mind, wreaking havoc on our politics and wreaking real damage to people.
All this time, the Republicans have become progressively more insane and idiotic-- demons of mental illness have increased.
How many demons can we handle before we completely fall apart?
Chaos accompanies these demons too, and we are currently beset by chaos: news chaos, political chaos, climate chaos, environmental chaos, military chaos.
