Every point you try to make and how you say it puts you into the SJW group.

I will take that as a Yes.

This "only true believers" approach is problematic. You either delegate your thinking or your integrity. If enough people do that you end up with a nation of fools and liars.

Yes that is what you do.


This is equivalent to saying that the only reason to vote against Hillary is misogynism. While some people will voice such opinions, we rightfully ridicule them. That is, such view narrows us vs. them to absurd levels.

The same must be true in Trump situation. There are epistemically justified (valid) reasons to support or oppose him. However, both unconditional support and unconditional opposition is an expression of pure tribalism indicative of defective thinking.

While you might disagree, to me holding rational beliefs is more important than what these beliefs actually are.
