If anyone is looking for a quick peek into the minds of the deluded, regressive left, here's a Salon article accusing Republicans of playing identity politics in the 2016 election, and claiming that, in order to win in the future, Democrats need to play the race card more. That's right. Play on race EVEN MORE.
This is an actual quote from the article about what Democrats can do to ensure victory next election cycle:
"They need to scare the s**t out of their base, especially people of color. The base needs to see Trump as an existential threat. For black people, that means that on Trump’s watch racism is increasing, civil rights protections are decreasing, and voting rights are in danger. For Latinos, it is the fear that they don’t belong, and that someone from the government will soon snatch up a member of their family."
To say this is messed up doesn't even begin to cover it.
