We seem to have a tendency to vilify and demonize those with opposing political views or affiliations. There is a nastiness afloat unlike anything before.

She's right though.

Pat Robertson and Franklin Graham have the audacity to claim Trump is the chosen one to keep Israel safe from destruction. Oy vey.
First quote is so true, LoL! Trump & Co. have been celebrating repeal of PC & you are seeing results. I would NEVER have called peeps a direct name like T-fool or T-dork b4; but untrue 'leeberal' accusations of MODERATES incites equal jerkdom
yes. its, "I demand proof of russia hacking, I demand proof! but, "where'd you hear that obama ordered a tap on trump towers?"...oh, a right wing talk radio host .....DERP
Well, there was a cop who pushed an 87 yr old woman down and maced her friend, and they were anti trump. if you recall at trump rally's, violence was encouraged. BY trump! fish rots from the head....too late to fix it now. they want it they got it.
