We can’t for the life of us figure out why so many Republicans and conservatives feel like progressives are self-righteous, condescending jerks when that actually couldn’t be further from the truth.
Just take National Book Award finalist Lauren Groff, who’s clearly got outreach down to a science:
All of this could have been avoided if a small percentage of Republicans read up to two books a year.

Wait. That’s not outreach at all. That’s just self-righteous condescension.

My dad has a spare room and a porch at his house filled with containers of all of the books he has read that year. He votes Republican every chance he gets.

I read a lot. I love to read. It’s truly disheartening to see comments like this from authors who could build community & foster a love of reading among all. https://t.co/BvRLGRuMtj

Amusingly, some of the Republicans I know have written more than two books in the past year.
