Is Nothing At All Sacred Anymore?

Answer: No.

Exhibit A:
It becomes inevitable, after a certain point, that a subculture will fracture. Especially at a time where an election becomes so polarizing that neighbors won’t talk to neighbors, families split apart, and Chelsea won’t text Ivanka.

Take the furries for example — an old and proud subculture of people who dress up in anthropomorphic animal costumes and have sex with each other in said costumes. They are seeing the rise of a far right-wing nationalist faction. The “alt furries,” like the alt right, flirt with Nazi ideology, subscribe to a new anti-globalist brand of conservatism, and they absolutely love Donald Trump.
Proof also that there's no sub-culture so small that it can't have its own weirder, more-looked-down-upon sub-culture. (thanks to Andy for the link)

Related quote:
I have often been called a Nazi, and, although it is unfair, I don't let it bother me. I don't let it bother me for one simple reason. No one has ever had a fantasy about being tied to a bed and sexually ravished by someone dressed as a liberal.
-- P.J. O'Rourke
Note that the same is not true apparently of someone dressed as a Nazi bear.

And you'll be as surprised as I was to find out that Nazis and guys in bear suits go way back. So perhaps the Nazi furries should be more accurately referred to as Nazi furry reenactors.

Semi-related: Nazi-ing up Nazi stuff so you know that it's Nazi.

Cliff Claven: Well there, it's common knowledge that after Stalin cancelled the dancing bear troupe from its Berlin engagement, Hitler had no recourse but to invade. And the invention of the teddy bear came about to placate a German citzenry clamoring
