6. Because he is privilege personified

They're caught up in a worldview where privilege reigns, where they're told they deserve more than their fair share because their skin color or maleness or Christianity of cis-hetness.

And Donnie not only constantly pushes that worldview, but he is the ultimate exemplar of it. *everything* he has is due to privilege. Everything he does is based on privilege. Every hire, every favor, every insult, etc. all based on privilege.

His utter incompetence, his evilness, his shabby clothes, his bizarre hair, everything about him eliminates any other explanation for whatever success and fame he has. He's bad at everything other than privilege. Pushing it, leveraging it, benefitting from it. That's all he is.

He is, to the bigot, living proof that anyone white can win, anyone male can win, etc., even if they suck at their job or whatever. So he represents hope for people who can't find success in a fair system.
