Sam Bee defends identity politics: It’s ‘what we used to call civil rights and equality’

"You know what happens when Democrats stand up for transgender rights? They win...Who knew equality and human decency were vote getters?"

Samantha Bee defended “identity politics” on Monday’s Full Frontal, calling for liberals not to give up on fighting for equal rights for all. As Bee says in the clip, “‘Identity politics’ is the dismissive term for what we used to call civil rights and equality.” Republicans and conservative pundits are now using the term to blame Hillary’s loss on Democrats’ focus on issues that don’t sit well with most white Americans, like transgender rights. Bee cues up clips of Fox News correspondents declaring that people are “getting real tired” of political correctness, and that “cultural issues don’t matter.” Watch the clip to see what Bee has to say about it.
