    a blind eye to some of the knee-jerk racist and sexist dog whistles that seem to be woven into the fabric of their politics.

    "The enemy of my enemy is my friend" might make a good slogan, but some friends we can live without.  We need to find a way to talk with the "white guys in the south" that helps them evolve and get past needing their dog whistles.

    That sounds kinda snobby, doesn't it?  But I still think it's non-negotiable.  One of the big problems that some of my conservative relatives and friends really have trouble with when I confront them on it,  is apologizing for the racism and sexism that their party ignores (at best) or actively encourages (at worst).      

    Metaphors be with you.
