The worst thing about the existence of government is people using it to protect bigots and give them more power to discriminate against minorities and further racism in society. This is just harmful to society and ignorant.

Mace Windu: Then our worst fears have been realized. We must move quickly if the Jedi Order is to survive.
but the Supreme Court has decided that you do NOT have a right to not serve blacks at your restaurant, not allow blacks at your hotel, not hire blacks at your company, not sell blacks your merchandise, not allow blacks on your cruise ship, etc etc.
discrimination on a private level, is your right. but when it involves commerce, it is not your right.
- Colonel Paul YinglingNobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.
Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.
All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
