    There's a reason this is happening.

    I'm sorry for posting in an old thread, but I just found the article you've linked to interesting.

    I recently watched American Horror Story (which season, I don't remember), and it involved the election of Trump. Unsurprisingly, it also invoked the left vs right debacle, but with a different angle. The far, extreme right was equated to a cult. In fact, there was a cult in this season. A cult founded on misogyny and fear. The cult spreads fear and wrecks havoc only to have the opportunity to address these crimes from the political platform (the cult leader is an elected official). In short, when a people fears its safety and imagines the "other" to be the root cause of most of its problems, people like Trump will find it easier to emerge.

    It is quite a generalization, of course, but just thought I'd share.

    Sorry for the long post, and if this seems all over the place. Would have liked more time, so I could have made more sense.

    And their worst season so far.
    I get trying to ride the percieved wave but they overestimated the hate it wasnt funny and the wailing and gnashing of teeth was childish.
    The left needs to accept that Trump is getting it done and people are seeing the improvement.

    I agree. The season was overblown. It was a struggle watching it. It also grossly misrepresented Trump supporters and those who contest his political stance. Poor television, to be generous.
