The idea of identity politics originates in the cultural Marxism of the 20th century and to put it very simply, it makes for a sample of collectivism (as a political ideology) in its purest form. There are 2 basic philosophical doctrines in this world: collectivism and individualism (left and right of the political spectrum) and they are antithetic. Collectivism is a political philosophy and a moral stance, i.e. its an ideology that emphasizes the group and the interests of the group rather than of the individual.
Since groups are abstract concepts as they are composed strictly from individuals (you cant touch a group, only a certain person from that group), collectivism is the opposite of individualism. On the other hand, individualism is the notion that the individual has inalienable rights which are fundamental and granted upon birth by the Creator ( as per the US Constitution) not by the state, i.e. they cant be trampled on following that old adagio for the greater good of the greater number, which is the favorite slogan of the political left.

That’s just for beginners.
The Democrat Party is in a world of trouble, and they’re inextricably stuck to a dystopian ideological “Tar Baby” of their own making. All they now offer American citizens is redistributive socialism, cultural polarization, race-hatred, corruption, resentment, class-envy, egalitarianism, despair, open borders, a crippled military, unearned entitlements, nihilism, failed schools, malignant cynicism, secular humanism, global weakness, economic decline, oppressive taxation, moral relativism, infanticide, voter fraud, identity politics, high unemployment, gripping fear, governmental tyranny, hopelessness, subjugation and the intentional surrender of our national sovereignty and identity -— all of which are the antithesis of what built and sustained this great nation.

It took me a while, but I concluded that nothing matters to Dims but a socialist state. There is no amount of truth or evidence that can be presented that will cause them to deviate from their goal.

(*Big Bang Theory Raj voice*) That sounds vaguely racist to me...
The government schools drill collectivism into the brains of the children at an early age. Guess why?
The Constitution doesn’t mention a Creator. The author is thinking of the Declaration of Independence, which points out that all rights come from a Creator God, not from government.
“The government schools drill collectivism into the brains of the children at an early age. Guess why?”
This is why I was disappointed in Betsy DeVos who not only backed away from ridding the schools of Common Core (I know she declared CC ‘dead’, but the schools still use it; nothing has changed), but she is pushing for school choice over striving to eliminate the anti American indoctrination in the schools.
What good is school choice when every choice results in left wing indoctrination?
I am so tired of Black Racism. If one spends more than a few minutes or hours in a day talking about their race, they are a racist by definition. The race industry need to go back and listen to what Martin Luther King said.
Hopefully more and more people will become sick of identity politics soon.
