The Case for Trump
Victor Davis Hanson
"For those in key midwestern swing states, identity politics had devolved from concerns for diversity to ranting against white supremacy and white privilege. Democrats were apparently oblivious to the fact that 67% of the electorate was still white, and most of the majority was neither wealthy nor especially privileged." - Victor Davis Hanson, The Case for Trump (2019)
I'll say, identity politics is political association based on belonging to a racial, religious, ethnic, or sexual/gender category, which is opposed to party politics where people agitate in favor of a political party or broader ideology. I feel the author is near to the claim that white people aren't concerned about white supremacy, which in smearing people based on race. Likely Hanson would clarify that ineffective methods used by the left, exaggeration, and misplaced blame are the problem, not opposing supremacy itself.
