If we are discussing left and right, we have to properly distinguish the two. Especially if we are going to find out what is the gripe between each two is.

Well the New Deal coalition collapsed with segregation.

I think you know where this is going.

The portion you quoted was intended to address a broader picture than the US. Just so we are clear.

Though, taking that broader picture into account, to hell with a few decades ago. Let's look as far back as Andrew Jackson and trace it from there. Arguably the foundation of this country is rooted in the same conflict, but that's another conversation.

Ignore history. Only the past few years are important. And not the complete years, or the complete truth, just bits and pieces here and there.
