When people are overly nationalistic, pharisaically religious, xenophobic, obsessed with guns, opposed to co-existing, believe everything an Alpha says unquestioningly, and live off the grid.....

....they look like a potential domestic terrorist...

...or a personified COINTELPRO operation...

...or someone who is in serious need of GETTING REAL...

....But maybe, just maybe, they really will end up saving the country like they imagine in their dreams.

We'll have to wait until the next episode to find out.
And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. As many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of the will of God. The hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth,

Whenever people (conservative or liberal) accuse the opposition of being mentally ill, they do exactly what has been done with the term "racist": they totally misuse the term and make it lose its credibility even when used to refer to actual racists/mentally ill people.

We oughta egg them on, so that linguistic hyperinflation sets in, and we can collectively stop paying attention

Yes you can add racist to the woodpile of words that have been watered-down and lost meaning in the modern political climate. Another word that gets thrown-around is brainwashed, what's funny is that it's usually used by somebody who has obviously thoroughly marinated their own brain in propaganda.

Everyone is brainwashed to some extent. And this isn't entirely a bad thing.
