You're highlighting the actual problem right there. Homophobia and racism have absolutely nothing to do with politics. Neither have civil rights or healthcare. The US is one of the only countries in the world that makes those things seem political because one party supports crimes against humanity while the other doesn't. If you talk about extremism and socipathy then you're no longer talking about politics, which makes your question moot.
Civil rights and healthcare shouldn't be political, but sadly the reality is that one's stance on them is often determined by one's political position.
Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023. (And over 130 million lifetime)
