The world view of the opposing group, Republican voters in this case. Intolerance is a fatal flaw in a politician, a party or in a human being for that matter: if you can’t see the other guy’s point of view, and accept their right to differ from you then that is your character flaw, not theirs. This flaw ruined the Democrat campaign: instead of showing a vision of a better future, the Clinton campaign and virtually all the media concentrated on demonising Trump and insulting those who might vote for him. It is gross hypocrisy to label your opponents Racists, Xenophobes, Misogynists, Deniers and Deplorables, then riot in the streets after a democratic election doesn’t go your way. Democrats against Democracy! there’s a slogan from them: there are lessons for the Left to learn from this campaign, chief of which is you can’t get people to vote for you by insulting them.
