So when does one become the other side in "both sides"? What is the line for being as bad as a Nazi?

Give this to all the Trump apologists. And please shuffle things around and add them as I took things from multiple dimensions (Beliefs, statements, social policy, economic policy, etc.) and put it all in one list so everybody will see things as different on the 'how extreme it is' scale. I also thought about making a question for support for the ACA and one for "Obamacare", but I decided against it, but if you want to do it, please do.

Please stop at the position that is "just as bad" as Dylann Roof, Jason Dalton, and Jason Alex Fields, 'joking' about throwing people into ovens, seeing "The Purge" and "Punishment Park" as instructional videos, and more.

Is it:
* Being "politically correct"?
* Seeing the concept of "political correctness" as a strawman used by the right?
* Saying "Happy Holidays"?
* Questioning the divinity and "divine inspirations" of people such as Pat Robertson?
* Thinking Alex Jones is an idiot?
* Seeing Breitbart News as the textbook definition of "fake news"?
* Seeing the Shoebat clan (Walid and Theodore) and Sebastian Gorka as frauds?
* Abolishing child labor?

* Providing support for refugees?
* Seeing race, gender, and class as social constructs rather than something biological or divinely inspired?
* Supporting the dismantling of Confederate monuments?
