The evidence is wherever and whatever you want it to be!
Political media tends to do this thing where they take conclusions drawn from itself and project those conclusions onto voters (i.e. "I hate Trump, ergo, they will also hate Trump," or "I hate some culture war issue, ergo, it will be a winning issue for Republicans).
Meanwhile, voters, who largely have other things to do, vote for myriad reasons!
I generally assume no one feels the same way I do about anything and that has so far not steered me wrong.

It's interesting how DiAngelo is tied to critical race theory while apparently entirely rejecting the materialism central to critical race theory while focusing on white people saying the wrong things. Granted, doing so is probably a better economic decision.

Still waiting on that Toussaint Louverture biopic
This biopic would be rated NC-17 for "excruciating violence and not in a fun way"
Hey speaking of Haiti…

The point is not that the protests are bad. The point is that the law is bad.

I cannot possibly recommend these two podcast episodes enough.
What struck me about these episodes was thinking about Heydrich within the context of both Nazism and his own time, as a person who engaged in evil for careerist purposes and did so effectively.
(There's also a lengthy discussion of the film "Conspiracy" which is very good and will cause you to sit staring at a wall for several hours afterwards. )

This is a general human instinct worsened by being told constantly that the other side is already planning how they'll execute you
There's a piece going around about how liberals have moved further left than conservatives have moved right -- which could absolutely be true! But I do think that such data tends to be used to argue "THEY'RE MAKING US BE THIS WAY"
(Especially since it really depends on how you define "left" and "right" and which cultural issues one uses as a marker, if any. Like, conservatives have not, as I've seen, gotten more limited-government-y since 2015.)
