Explanation

Beginning with the second blank, the clue is “class warfare.” A society with class warfare is divided into hostile groups, or balkanized, but it need not be either socialized or politicized.

This means that politicians try to dismiss or belittle talk of class warfare, or denigrate it. Besmirch means to “attack the honor of something” — although the word is negative, it isn’t quite appropriate here.

Denigrate, balkanized.
