The Democrats often characterize Republican voters as lazy, ignorant, angry, unemployed losers who are uneducated and therefore can't fathom the ultimate wisdom of the Democrats. In fact, most Democrats seem to share the opinion prevalent at the senior levels of the Democrats in government: "Trump’s supporters are all poor to middle class, uneducated, lazy POS that think he will magically grant them jobs for doing nothing. They probably didn't watch the debates, aren't fully educated on his policies, and are stupidly wrapped up in his unmerited enthusiasm." In other words, deplorables.

(BTW, check out the vote among college educated in the past few elections. Want to understand identity politics and why the Democrats play it so hard? Trump won whites with a college degree 49% to 45%. In 2012, Romney won college-educated whites by a moderately wider margin in 2012 (56%-42%). John McCain’s margin among these voters in 2008 was the same as Trump's: 51%-47%.

Despite vicious name-calling and bigoted generalizations about republican voters, however, the Democratic Party almost always seeks shamelessly to promote the voting interests of those who: a.) don't have any form of identification (in this society?), b.) haven't voted for years and can't be bothered to respond reasonable efforts to contact them, c.) in many instances, are illegally present and can't vote in any event (yes, voting "rights" in these instances have often been advocated by Democrats, e.g., states have extended noncitizen voting to municipal elections, and Democrats are working hard to push that principle further).

Ok, Democrats think it is good public policy to promote voting by these groups. That's not my point here. Perhaps it would be better if ALL persons voted and half of them weren't falsely demonized by the Democrats.

Democrats: if you advocate voting by the groups described above, stop calling Republicans, e.g., lazy and not fully educated on the policies of the US government.

^^^^^^^Anon, it's one of your own from the National Review who said exactly that: "The White American underclass," according to Kevin D. Williamson, "is in thrall to a vicious, selfish culture whose main products are misery and used heroin needles. Donald Trump makes them feel good and so does oxy contin." Its an exciting time, go have me a Chick-Fil-A and some greasy fries.
