If you’re going to claim that the entire Democratic Party is supportive of this crap, back it up.
There are always going to be some on the fringes of each side of politics, and the other side will try to paint them all with that extreme, but come on…
The Democrats lost the last election because of (in no particular order):
- The Russian interference (propaganda works on enough people)
- The Democrats put up a candidate without a narrative of why she should be president (I’m not him wasn’t good enough).
- They (Democratic party) also ignored the ongoing desire/demand for change (which was a big reason Obama’s Hope campaign was successful); the party’s conventional wisdom was wrong, and Bernie Sanders would have been a better candidate (and would’ve had a better chance in the general election) because he was addressing the apalling inequality & unfairness in the USA, while Clinton was easily (albeit incorrectly) painted as being part of the status quo & thus the problem.
And while obviously not all members of the Republican Party are racist/sexist/etc., if you’re a bigot in America you’re probably a Republican, and so as that fringe hated a black president, they certainly didn’t next want a woman president.
To your twitter post from a magazine aimed at a female audience, the very ‘conservative’/right-wingers who get upset at the Democrats for supporting feminism, equality for homosexuals, etc. were never going to vote for a Democrat anyway, so they aren’t who the Democrats need to appeal to or to placate.
The centre is where the swing votes always are, and they aren’t happy; unfortunately Trump convinced enough of them that he might actually change something for them so they took a chance, while others were actively saying they’d vote for him as an attempt to ‘break the system’ which isn’t working for them.
