Political extremist are being divisive & blatantly gender and racially biased. How do we heal?


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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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?

    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.
