The Left, violence, identity politics

Tucker Carlson points out that the Democrat party is now an organized movement around identity politics.
That is the idea that every American is a member of a subgroup, usually a racial category, and that the point of achieving power is to win spoils for that group. Another word for this is tribalism, and it is the most divisive possible way to run the country. There are no ideas or arguments. There is only victory or defeat for the group you belong to. In the end, every group finds itself at war with every other group. It is the story of much of the rest of the world, and the Left has brought it here to America. ...Anything old must be destroyed! That would include the basic institutions going back to colonial times: the nuclear family, freedom of speech, traditional religious faith, the rule of law.
