Tol, that was the article I linked just before your comment.

Also from the federalist, an article with this title.

Your Refusal To Date Conservatives Is One Reason We Have Donald Trump

Not taking the piss, that was the title.

Assortative mating serves to intensify this polarization. It amplifies an already significant ingroup-outgroup mentality around contentious social issues. Social and cultural issues create severe disagreement because they trigger the emotional part of the brain: the disagreement challenges a core part of group identity. This is exacytly the type of schism that an arrogant demagogue like Trump exploits.

See, if y'all stuck up liberal bitches just moved to Bumfuck Idaho and put up with Bubba's casual racism and belief in your place being in his kitchen making sammiches America would be living a second New Deal by now!

If a progressive doesn’t want to date a conservative and vice versa, that’s perfectly fine. Everyone has deal-breakers. But as a political protest, this form of virtue-signaling is counterproductive in the long run.

Lie back ladies, think of 'murica!

Crusader Kings 2 is getting a new DLC, and it looks really shit. Basically, it's China but without actually having China on the map. If ever there were a sign that it's time to start over with a better engine, it's this.

Oh hey, look at this:

This is my "not surprised" look.

Pay attention to the progression in his messages. He goes from:
Quote
The KKK is horrible and I don’t support them in any way, but can we admit that their internal title names are cool, e.g. “Grand Wizard”?

to:

Quote
If you make the actual KKK the only place where you can acknowledge the coolness of D&D terms, then you’ll just push people into the KKK.

In a few steps.

And before someone comes in and says that he's not promoting the KKK I wish to ask: Is KKK the only place that acknowledges the "coolness of DnD terms?" Because I know for a fact that not only is that claim not true it is no different from the claims in his original manifesto. If you read between the lines you see that his messages are incomprehensible non-sequitors unless you look at them with the assumption that the subtext is "KKK is cool." Same as his "scientific manifesto" that only makes sense if his point is to claim that women are bad at tech jobs and it's their own fault.

Huh, apparently Libertarians and Incels have an overlap.

TL;DR

"Conservatives and Liberals both hate each other but the Liberals refuse to be reasonable and let us fuck them so [file corrupted] and therefore Trump won."

Ah, still kinda morbid and a bit tasteless. Granted I think most of what politicians and police do in the U.S. is tasteless so whatever.
