Gay conservatives see collective identity politics as a lot of whining

David Benkoff has a piece in the Daily Caller downplaying Donald Trump’s supposed backpedaling on gay rights, all the way back to 2016, here.   A lot of denial of identity politics and placing people into groups claiming systematic oppression.  The Log Cabin Republicans tweeted this today.

There is something inevitable about all this:  people who are individually competitive have little use for identity politics and tend to be more conservative.
