Will there be violence between Republicans and Democrats in Trump's broken America? Political parties are increasingly like sports teams. The Trumpists and other Republicans are soccer hooligans. My new .@salon…
Political scientist Liliana Mason's research suggests this is a distinct possibility. Her work also shows that yes there is hyper polarization but Republicans are much more hostile to the groups that comprise the Democratic Party than the other way around.
Republicans are extremely cold and hostile towards nonwhites, gays and lesbians, women, and other groups who they identity as part of the Democratic Party. Democrats have much less hostility towards white men, "Christians", rural Americans and the like.
Because political party identity has superseded other types of identities and Trump was able to capitalize on white grievance mongering and fear about losing white privilege in a more diverse America there can be no compromise by Republicans in the service of the Common Good.
