Conflict makes a lot of money for the News and Social Media. They are not going to give that up so yes they will turn to whatever puts eyes on them. However I do think there is some additional stuff at play here with regards to liberal views and the media that is very biased, unhealthy and marginalizes a huge part of America.
absolutely agree. The true believers do not want “unity” they want eradication of the “conservative” ideology. Spin it how you want whether that is guns, social policy, fiscal policy etc. they have spoke into law that anything that does not align with their beliefs is automatically “racist”. It is the new McCarthyism. Once accused and tried in the court of public opinion the individual, organization etc is basically fucked because there is no outlet to offer evidence to the contrary. McCarthyism burned some communist spies but it also torched some innocent folks both accidentally and for sheer perversity
