Firstly I agree with many of the points in the article.

It’s now 2018. There are more elections coming up. The point is 1) To appeal to people who aren’t crazy to not be swayed or bullied by crazy people for the elections coming up, and 2) To outline the tactics of these extremist bullies so you know what’s happening as the election season ramps up and 3) To, as the article says, warn people against following a pied piper song that tells them not to settle for anything less than perfection, because it doesn’t exist (certainly not in Bernie Sanders) and it hands republicans elections.
