(Before It's News)

I tried to tell our SJW friends:

Identity politics was much more important than the super delegates, the debate schedule, the big donors, the media’s thumb on the scales and other aspects of the rigged nomination process. Hillary’s campaign message about “breaking down all the barriers” successfully channelled resentment against Whites.

Oh, and it didn’t matter that those Whites were largely anti-racist, progressive Bernie Bros who are committed to social justice and think Trump is a racist. They just weren’t responding to Sanders’ class-based message.
