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.

This is hilarious, they're exposing the fact that the Mainstream Media is cynically fear mongering - especially among ethnic minorities - by admitting that they see said fear mongering as a legitimate tactic, and saying they should do more of what they've self evidently already been doing.

It's not by accident that George Soros, Hillary's top donor, just happened to donate $33m to Black Lives Matter in a single year - he did that to help whip up fear among minorities and try to ensure they actually turn out to vote.

He's pulling the same trick with the Linda Sarsour fronted Women's March and the Open Societies Foundation.

Not to mention the fact that he has links to the actual Nazi party and is funding SR style rabble rousers in the form of Antifa, as well as BLM to a lesser extent.

Even the Hungarian PM (Soros is a Hungary-born US citizen) has just been calling him out for working with the EU to flood Europe with Muslim migrants. A situation that was caused by Hillary and her neo-con agenda in Libya...

I'm not really sure what the point of stories like this are. What do progressives stand to gain from coming up with excuses as to why Trump won?

@contributor77 Good call.

I would suggest archiving links whenever possible to prevent giving views and ad revenue to those kind of web sites.

I guess we could say machiavellianism is now the Democratic Party's sole political philosophy.
