ONE TWEET TO RULE THEM ALL – Remember that old saying I keep bringing up a lot recently – “the right thinks the left is wrong, the left thinks the right is evil”? Well, this one tweet today, which clearly struck a cord with a lot of self-righteous people, is a perfect illustration of this all-purpose political explanation:


The translation: you are evil, and we hate you because you are evil. And no recognition of the fact that you can oppose Obama for reasons other than bigotry. I don’t hate Obama, but I think he has been a terrible president, but that’s nothing to do with his colour and everything to do with his ideology. This sort of morally vain and self-serving demonisation of the right is one of the main reasons why Trump is now president.
