Like all bigots, they are fearful that they are going to be marginalized, and I don't think that fear is unfounded. They would seem to be mostly low-average in intelligence; there are those with greater intelligence but the reason they are are on the fringe is because they have a psychiatric conditions, perhaps a personality disorders, that results in poor judgment.
