Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, November 09, 2017

Jump-started by a short manifesto called The Once and Future Liberal: After Identity Politics by Columbia University professor Mark Lilla, it's a conversation worth following for reasons beyond partisanship. As in his New York Times essay published 10 days after Trump's electoral victory, Lilla's purpose in this broadside is two-fold: to excoriate identity politics, sometimes called "identity liberalism," and to convince his "fellow liberals that their current way of looking at the country, speaking to it, teaching the young, and engaging in practical politics has been misguided and counterproductive."

Socio-cultural identity is a valuable resource, but identity politics is usually a poor tool, usually used poorly.

Like Trump didn't ride his own side of identity politics right into the WH.
