When I deleted the comments below the question it already had 30 comments, most of them containing pointless political bickering. So I just nuked the whole thread. I just reviewed your comment to see if it has special value which might justify to restore it.
Your comment in particular was:
This answer, while totally and unfortunately accurate, highlights a flaw in the question: this answers the question from the perspective of US elites, but I would bet my next paycheck the average American doesn't think about the question in those terms even if they'd agree with you when it's put like this.
Let's review the comment policy and if the comment fulfills it:
You should submit a comment if you want to:
Request clarification from the author;
Sorry, can't find any request for clarification here.
Leave constructive criticism that guides the author in improving the post;
The primary criticism here is addressed at the question, not the answer. If there is any criticism directed at the author of the answer, it is destructive criticism ("you should not put it like this") but no constructive criticism ("You should maybe add this"). Also, the comment was posted 2 days ago and the author of the question logged in and read that comment in the meantime, so we can assume that they did not feel the need to act on any criticism. So when the comment had the purpose to convince the author to change their answer, it unfortunately failed at doing that.
Add relevant but minor or transient information to a post (e.g. a link to a related question, or an alert to the author that the question has been updated).
Sorry, can't find anything of that sort either.
