Sure...but its not the ONLY thing the Right talks about. The Right is not the same as the religious right just as the left is not the same as progressive hatred of religion left.

The Left have been fear mongering and tapping into the anxieties for women, minorities, LGBT+, illegal immigrants etc...

I wont defend trump....he is pretty indefensible. I just wont coddle the left and let them get away with their garbage either.

The Right do this as well...but they don't have a constant stream of media flow cramming down everyone's throats that whitey and his "anxieties" is the problem.

Sure, I would argue that is how politics work at the moment. And to a large extent always has. We are just drowning in it anymore.

Tap into anxiety or fear in a given population base and exploit it. Get them afraid of what may happen if thing happens and get them out to vote or to help push for your policies.

It is not like there is no grounding for many of the concerns people have. They are just often stoked to unneeded extremes in most cases by those that what something.

The left is going to be freaking out more now being conservatives have been in power and doing things against the left, while calling them out and smack talking along the way. It is going to make things even worse.

Having the equivalent of an internet troll as commander and chief stoking flames on twitter hardly helps either. It would not be great even if he was not but it is throwing gasoline on the fire with policies, attitude and words.
