Is it all about hate?

Nora Ephron, an Academy Award nominated playwright, says the upcoming Democratic primary in Pennsylvania will be about hate:
[N]ow that there are only two Democratic candidates, it's suddenly horribly absolutely crystal-clear that this is an election about gender and race. .... This is an election about whether the people of Pennsylvania hate blacks more than they hate women.
Of course, as a true liberal, she doesn't admit to harboring hate herself. No, she projects it onto white men:
And when I say people, I don't mean people, I mean white men.
(Note that, according to Ms. Ephron, white men aren't even 'people.') She says her opinion of white men comes from her personal experience:
[W]hite men cannot be relied on, as all of us know who have spent a lifetime dating them.
Ms. Ephron is married to Nicholas Pileggi. He has my sympathy.

PREVIOUSLY, liberal theories of identity group politics were discussed here, here, here, and here. For more on Ms. Ephron's hate, see Ed Morrissey, and Top of the Ticket.

What a disempowering despicable worldview that Nora Ephron has. I hope she doesn't have any sons or grandsons or nephews. I feel sorry for anyone in her personal life. What a negative, pessimistic, self loathing witch. What a charm she must be to hang out with.
