I think many Democratic strategists even see the problem. The rub is that it’s a trap. Peddling this narrative has become a prerequisite to win the primary for the Ds in the same way that peddling religion used to be a prerequisite for the Rs. It’s a self-inflicted wedge issue, which hedges out any possibility of a win in an opposite color (blue/red) state. The dynamics of the social justice left are very similar to the dynamics of the moral majority, at a game level.
