Sentence: "I don't/didn't used to support any kind of violence..."

My question/ doubt: What word would be appropriate in this sentence if it were to be said in past tense: "don't used to" or "didn't used to" ?

Thanks

I don't/do not = Present

I didn't/did not = Past

I won't/will not = Future

Only didn't is appropriate in the past.

Present: I don't support ...
Past: I didn't use to support ... (I didn't used to is also accepted.)

Jim please explain why didn't isn't appropiate in the past tense.

I didn't do my homework.

You didn't take the rubbish out.

We didn't go on holiday last year.

They didn't go to the theatre last night.

He/she didn't understand why you think the word didn't appropiate in the past tense.

All the above refer to events in the past.

Did you not read my response correctly, perhaps?

Only didn't is appropriate in the past.
=

Of the two choices (didn't and don't), didn't (and not don't) is the only choice which is appropriate if you want to use the past tense.

Sorry. I did misread. Trying to do too many things at once and learn at the same time.
