Ilhan Imar's identity politics minefield from, theweek..com

This is more propaganda, the conservatives claim Democratic,are too focused on, "identity, a lie when it is so obvious the Republicans are fully committed to a Whites Only kind of identity since Nixon.

They want to be allowed to exclude, people who they consider to be something, other than a rightful and fully franchised Citizen.

The conservatives and Republicans will never admit, that if all citizens are not allowed access and participation in political and economic and education, housing, food and a safe environment, those rights and privileges are at risk for all citizens.

Like, the exposed gathering of information against Democratic in Congress, which has a history in the U.S. via Hoover's FBI, the Nixon dirty tricks team, the W. Bush suppression of the anti-Iraq War movement, and etc.

Ilhan's remarks are not related in any way to "identity," politics but to the superior idea of equality for all humans as humans.

Can our Democratic political organizations and teams, find an effective way to combat this notion, that equality for all is NOT identify politics and that seeking inclusion for all is not about identity it is about being human and enfranchised as a Citizen.

When I have had conversations and pressed this point with conservatives, they sincerely believe that granting equal rights to women and others who have been legally excluded is a loss of their own rights. They claim, they are losing their rights to lesser types or some other nonsense and that granting equality to all is, an actual theft of their privilege as what they believe is a superior identity.

2. Their narrow vision of who is allowed to be selfish was amplified when the libertarian kochnetwork
