During this political campaign for President the ugliest and extremist crazies have been vocally abusive towards women & individuals of color, including the President. When a shoe was thrown at then Pres. Bush even I a non-supporter was appalled at the lack of respect for the "office" of the POTUS. Today it's open season on women & "minorities". Hatred runs rampant as misogynists and bigots verbalize their ignorance in extremely public forums. How does this country begin to heal and move forward?

Here's why: "The hatred is certainly palpable in that post, at any rate." In response to my opinion. Personal attacks rather than talking. That way--they deflect from the issues, and make it about me. Or Obama, or Clinton, or whoever. Name calling.
That wasn't a personal attack, it was an observation on what you had written. In casting blame on "the other" for the hatred so common in today's society, you exposed your own, LMC. If you hate hatred, first stop hating, then point out the rest.
How do you say I was hating? I was expressing my opinion. You put that label on me. Trust me, there was no hate. I was explaining my take on the division going on. I could well say that you have hatred towards Obama, but I don't go there. Why do you?
Oh, my shaking head. The left is unreal. Here's one of several from the post: "It will take a 2 by 4 to heal, I think. A miracle. They need to feel the pain they are inflicting ...but this is the time for it! And I personally can't wait."
The hatred for "who" fills the chair is overshadowing all of the important things we need to get done. Not even surprised to hear that. You are so right we need to listen to one another. Not attack or try to destroy. Thank you for responding.
Frankly, Lady, each of us needs to listen to himself first. Then, and not until then, he will be in a position to hear what others are saying.
As a Christian I believe in the power of prayer and the miracles it can bring to pass. But people who called themselves wore white hoods in this country and still continue to torment others they feel aren't "worthy". Faith requires work.
Clearly My Lady Dee,
But you asked how to heal not how to punish and deter. I think your question is the right one - first. Next time you see me, get all excited and ballistic when I read a tiny bit of hate -- that is what I do. Nip in the bud.
Good rules....but it must apply to everyone, and that is where it goes haywire. Some people see it as war--they have said so. And there are no rules in war. Respect left the building a long time ago, where they are concerned. No Quarter is the motto
If this doesn't get voted as "Best Answer" it deserves a second, and a third look. We are all in this leaking boat, and we can all bail and row, or sink and drown together!
Great points. I'm a democrat but as you have stated I don't agree with everything not everyone. We have lost the basic rules of politeness and fairness. We as a people are suffering. What's important has been lost in the fight.
Thank you for responding. We rag on the younger generation that is all about "me" but we as adults are just as bad. We need to work harder and help get things moving in the right direction.
WB thank you for that powerful observation. We are individuals and in this election the group mentality has caused an ugly swarm. They've loss site of what's important. Their CONSTITUENTS.
1. Planned Parenthood? I'll get rid of that.
2. Bad economy.
3. They happen to be true, or do you believe that 10% or less of the population should own 60% of the wealth?
Women as sl*ts
Obama as shuckn and jivin food stamp spear throwing boy
47% as users....thinking they 're entitled to food.
Overturn row v wade, cause HE knows better what I choose to do with MY life
No money for poor,PLENTY for pals
LMC - you should not be referring to women in general as sluts. "Spear throwing boy" is your term! Overturn Roe v Wade - show me the quote and who said it. I do agree with you however, liberals are "petulant child[ren]".
How is getting rid of federal funding for a private abortion company either racist or sexist. The federal government should't use confiscatory taxes for that purpose. Constitution is key. Worse economy under Obama. Wealth to those who produce it.
I think that you are so right. We have to vote out politicians who do not truly represent what this country stands for. Those who aren't working on jobs and improving the economy should be voted out. Along with every one of them who wasted time.
I'm GOP, and I am neither greedy nor a hater of women. I'm quite the opposite on both counts.
What specifics can you cite that show the Party or Romney to be either a woman hater or a bigot. He had a higher % of women in his Administration as Governor than any of his predecessors.
