A Peterson Comment

I like Jordan Peterson despite his shortcomings.

He said something very interesting. He said (paraphrasing): “The Democrats in America were very wrong to replace their political base of working class people with a new base of “identity politics people” (Blacks, Browns, queers, feminists) circa 1968.”

Yes. A bad move. The working class at that time was very large. Tens of millions of people. A big mistake. Only the female vote saved them, but not always! Reagan, Bush, Trump, they still won. A bad move that doomed the Democrats. Now they are stuck in a rut.
