Look at Lurker Mom as a classic example.

During the Cold War anti-communist sentiment was very strong among the unions. Reagan used racism to lure them to his side. Most union guys are strong 2nd Amendment advocates. For several election cycles Republicans were enjoying a lot of support from union workers. Then the union guys woke up, about twenty years too late.



Please explain how LM is a "classic example" of someone who "woke up." Twenty years too late or ever.
