“Identity Politics” is the ideology of globalism and the Democrats have gone all in. There are thousands of identifiable groups across the global, each with it’s list of contentions, so there are literally hundreds of thousands of conflicts for social justice warriors to referee or mitigate.

It’s really stupid and they have far over played their hand, but you can’t say they aren’t consistent.
