Because I've seen that out of Trump supporters.
In *this* election some fraction of disaffected Berniebros biting off their noses to spite their faces by sitting it out could mean the difference between restoration (even if slight) of the country and the further slide into chaotic, kleptocratic despotism. That's a hell of a lot more consequential than some rando ranting about nukes.

The most extreme of the crazies can be largely discounted for either the impossibility of their claims, the obstacles against achieving them, or the ineffectuality due to smallness of scale.
