A thoughtful and enjoyable article; thank you for sharing, Torie.
The left does demonise these people - and paint them with an overly broad brush - very often. (No doubt it is mutual.)  As he notes, this is not just harmful to the Democratic Party, but to society at large. It is a little rich for the same people to complain about how "divisive" Trump is. To be honest, I think it has largely arisen from viewing these types as a sort of alien species: people like to have a bÍte noire they can think of as stupid or attribute the country's problems to, and it is much easier if you don't really know them - for Trumpians the equivalent is "job-stealing"/"rapist" immigrants.
