Wow. Very prescient. This played out in almost the exact same way with the Black Lives Matter protests. You had Group 1, who apparently thought "the police should stop unjustly arresting and killing black people" was too ambiguous for some reason. Group 2 supported the cause but didn't like the fact that the protests were too "disruptive", or that certain issues addressed by the movement made them uncomfortable. Group 3 simply wanted the protesters who were blocking streets to be run over by the traffic being blocked. They deemed BLM as the "real racists", just like the Coulter's Nazi comparison.

This is why I enjoy this blog. You don't waste time on stupid annual predictions and black swan bullshit just so you can tally up your score at the end of the year. Instead, you've nailed how these trends continue to progress.
