Democrat Rep Debbie Dingell said Wednesday that Democrats "need to listen to working men and women" and "stop demonizing each other" and was immediately chewed out by her leftist supporters on Twitter as a result.

In the wake of Jon Ossoff's spectacular loss, Dingell said on MSNBC she was "concerned" that Democrats have become entirely about identity politics.

"We've become this identity politics," Dingell said, "The Women's Caucus, the Black Caucus, the Hispanic Caucus."

"We've lost the sense of 'we,' that our strength comes in community," she said.

In the same vain, Dingell tweeted Wednesday: "Joined [The Washington Post's Jonathan Capehart] for a wide-ranging discussion about the need to listen to working men & women, stop demonizing each other & solve problems."

Her supporters were having none of it:

Hatred of white males seems to be the only thing holding the Democratic party's divergent identity politics blocks together. The trouble is, the Democrats now need these same "evil white males" to vote for them if they're going to win elections, at least for the near future.
