OK. Let me explain it for the mentally challenged:

Definition: Tribalism is the state of being organized by, or advocating for, tribes or tribal lifestyles. Human evolution has primarily occurred in small groups, as opposed to mass societies, and humans naturally maintain a social network. In popular culture, tribalism may also refer to a way of thinking or behaving in which people are loyal to their social group above all else, or, derogatorily, a type of discrimination or animosity based upon group differences.

GROUP DIFFERENCES. IDENTITY POLITICS. TRIBAL WARFARE. It's what Donks DO. It's their specialty. Whether it's race, sex, income, gender, religion, political affiliation, it makes no difference what GROUP or TRIBE you're in, Donks entire line of thinking is driving wedges between those groups. Us vs them. Left vs Right. Poor vs Rich. Gays vs Straight. Proletariat vs Elite (hmmmm)….They literally THRIVE on tribal warfare.

Definition: Elitism is the belief or attitude that individuals who form an elite—a select group of people with an intrinsic quality, high intellect, wealth, special skills, or experience—are more likely to be constructive to society as a whole, and therefore deserve influence or authority greater than that of others. The term elitism may be used to describe a situation in which power is concentrated in the hands of a limited number of people. Oppositions of elitism include anti-elitism, egalitarianism, populism, and political theory of pluralism.

Wealth. Intellect. Experience. More areas where Donks tend to want to divide into like groups and get one side to attack the other. The irony is, Donks believe themselves to be the intellectual ELITE. I mean, only stupid redneck deplorables would vote for Donald Trump, right?

Is any of this sinking in?

I wasn't the one who disagreed. He was the one who called my take "dumb". Just trying to explain my reasoning here. I thought we agreed in the first place.

Winterborn, I met you at UD, and you aren’t short! Not tall like Kareem, but not short like Danny DeVito. Either that, or my eyesight is worse than I thought.

Your eyesight is 20/20. :D

I am just guilty of using bad grammar in the above post (I should not multitask). I run about 6'-1" in my stockings.
