Bad enough that one side wants to call what's going on a Holy War - the way to win it is to not fight that front, because the reasonable (educated) middle will call them on their own cherry-picking as much as they'll call the Right on it, and that would lose the one demographic they absolutely need to keep the nutcases from just taking over everything.
