Grieder: Conservatives should not take a more belligerent approach to the culture wars -
Conservatives aren’t exactly winning the culture wars, granted. But they aren’t being targeted on the basis of their religious beliefs — and the greatest threat to their political movement isn’t coming from the Americans they see as enemies.

Trump really hates apologizing for misogyny and racism. New reporting explains why. - The Washington Post
What Trump basically declares again and again, in one form or another, is that those who demand resistance to our basest and most divisive and hateful instincts should just shut up and stop ruining all the fun. Instead, by all means, go ahead and revel in them — without apology.

Raging, isolated Trump retreats deeper into his bubble - The Washington Post
One of the biggest lies at the core of Trumpism is the idea that great swaths of Real America are rooting for the hardest of hard-line immigration crackdowns to succeed and that only liberal elites in their bubble don’t get this. But this idea has itself created a bubble around Trump, and his most cynical advisers are very skilled at keeping it in place.

The Nationalist's Delusion - The Atlantic
From a different vantage point, what Trump’s supporters refer to as political correctness is largely the result of marginalized communities gaining sufficient political power to project their prerogatives onto society at large. What a society finds offensive is not a function of fact or truth, but of power. It is why unpunished murders of black Americans by agents of the state draw less outrage than black football players’ kneeling for the National Anthem in protest against them. It is no coincidence that Trump himself frequently uses the term to belittle what he sees as unnecessary restrictions on state force.
