Four fatal flaws in the Democrat strategy since 2016:
- they don't understand that many (most) Trump fans support him precisely because he is neither a Republican, or a Democrat
- they wrongly assume that the post Trump USA is best understood by using the frame of the pre-Trump USA world (Democrats vs Republicans, a sleeping population, all powerful media)
- they underestimate the smarts of ordinary people and overestimate their own
- they overestimate their own influence & support
They are also alienating anyone that doesn't think the way they do.
Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
