My point was more like pretty much no one thinks it's them who is being malicious. You need to have some empathy in politics to be able to properly engage with people who don't share your views, especially if you are trying to convince them that they might be in the wrong.

My point is not everyone IS being malicious about in-groups and out-groups.

Most of these right wingers will openly boast of malice unfortunately. I'm often intentionally malicious with jokes towards the wealthy and powerful, as I do really want us to bully them into submission.
