You’re right, we aren’t going to read the NY Times and if we did we would laugh. The media is not going to get it. You’re not going to get very many people on your side if you’re calling them a racist or sexist right from the get go. In the past these slanders would be employed out of frustration during a debate, today it’s the only counterpoint on the menu. It’s amazing I have to go over that, its like the left lacks social skills now when they used to be so good at it. You can think those things, but you don’t have to tell the customer everything. And yes by now you know I’m one of those racist sexist nativist homophobic Trump supporters. I live in Portland where going downtown with my funny Trump hat would be a death sentence, literally. And that’s fine I don’t need people to sympathize, I don’t need anyone's acceptance nor do I deserve it. Like it or not the same people that put Obama into office in MI and PA put Trump in office in 2016. Your side just isn’t winning the argument when you smear those people as racist, or sexists or uneducated or whatever. People pick up on that, and maybe at some point the left will gain the requisite social skills to adapt.
