This article from our friends in Venezuela presents an interesting take on why the only way to fight Trump may be to first recognize that we are playing into his narrative by being his enemy. Rather than oppose Trump and let him paint us as the enemy and scapegoat he needs to remain in power, we and our progressive politicians need to find common cause with those who voted for Trump, and we must convince them that we are true Americans just like them. This is the truth that Bernie Sanders recognized, and that most democratic politicians have failed to see: the only way to fight a populist is to be even more populist.

We tend to think resisting a populist is like boxing: a question of punching him harder than he punches you. It's not. It's like judo: the much subtler, trickier art of turning his strength against him.
