Are you so sure? Are you sure that my son cannot go on social media and see hate? Are you so right?
A strange thing you folks teach. No one really can get your position. But young children can feel your hate -- oh They hate so we must call them on it and hate them back. You perfected Liberals/progressives and you pompous ass conservatives you have lost respect. I cannot teach my child from you. All I could teach him from you is hate. Nasty words claiming of superiority. Condemn our founding fathers but show me one cuss word written from their mouth. I cannot teach a child civics by going to the source. It is nasty and deplorable and hateful.
Are you proud?
It is impossible to go on social media and not see hate, Eric. Some of the recent stuff is deplorable and serves no good purpose. A great example for our children.. NOT!
Eric Social Media has provided a broad Venue for the hateful to be spread and a good means of teaching our children, (Hate) and ways of how to express (Hate). I am not on it that much, but when I do venture, I am confronted in some degree by it. (Hate) it is there and your son cannot miss its many forms.
I feel your passion burning my eyeballs through my phone screen. Fanaticism is never good, whether it comes from the left or right. In my part time job I have a friend from the Philippines, a friend from Mexico, and a friend from Myanmar. They are excellent, wonderful people. I am white as the pure driven snow, but I cannot be a hater. That sounds like a lot of feel-good liberal rubbish, but it is true. By not loving one another we cheat ourselves, no one else.
hello....how do you think this prez got elected? how do you think women, muslims, people of color, immigrants feel with him in power? i'll tell you how my grandson feels. when he heard trump won, he said "i'm going to get locked up". when he heard trump speak about chicago, he said, "he's just going to go in and start shooting them". fish rots from the head. this has been a campaign of hate, "lock her up, lock her up"...even at inaugeration! and until people take responsability for THAT... its pretty easy to blame social media....i will say one thing it is good for: making people rich. people get rich spreading fake news, filled w hate. and when others spread it around, well there you go. what came first, the chicken or the egg? from my own perspective, no one else...the hate began with rush limbaugh in 1991, and its been downhill ever since.
I get it. The age old wisdom of fighting hate with hate. That has worked so well throughout history. Name the four most influential for positive change over the last 2 centuries. Did they match hate for hate?
well, the last couple i remember said only love can conquer hate...but then you have people preaching love, but acting on hate....how abou this: you will know them by their fruits. talk is cheap. and dont talk the talk unless u walk the walk.
Fantastic Leslie. A great reminder for all who judge. By the way I judge you as very bright and intelligent. But I think positive judgment is OK.
oh, youve had quite negative judgement on me before...so much so that u asked me to stay off your hubs. and really, i CAN judge...im not commanded not to. you are.
You would be wrong about that. I know for sure I did not ask you to stay off my hubs. But I have been wrong before. Or perhaps 4 years ago I should have??
no, you did. i would not make that up...what for? and you're not the only one. probly a good idea. my opinion on trump voters, you dont wanna know. good luck in trumpland. i wont bother your hp posts again!
You are fully mistaken. You have never even visited one of my Eric's Sunday Sermons and left a note.
I can wander pondering with the sentiments shared and expressed Eric. Hate is a topic unto itself and is not an emotion. Agreed . . . what lessons can be taught must be frustrating. We can read emotions in content, we can see it with images, and for some to many we interpret as hate. It is easily seen at FB, Twitter, and elsewhere while influences me and I am not a child, but still learn lessons such as recognizing hate, bullying tactics, and see the impact of the new rage - Fake News.
There is a bad trend right now to assume that one cannot hold a contrary position unless it is based on hatred/fear/evil instead of being a reasoned one. It is lazy moralizing that my side is good/love/moral and thus the contrary side is evil/bad/hate.
It also destroys the ability to have a rational debate because it denies the other side has a legitimate grievance or reasoned view in the first place.
Eric, there was a time when I thought this world was finally getting past racism and hate. I always thought the new generations would be more enlightened than their forefathers. Then I go on social media and realized that hate has taken on a new form. Still there but hidden more.

Why should Mike Pence refer to David Duke as 'deplorable' just because the media says he should?The media is chastising Mike Pence just because he refuses to bad mouth someone just because they say he should. In my opinion he just refuses to stoop to the level of the left. Just because David Duke...

I listened to a australian authour give a speech within the last 24 hours. While I found his monotone voice making me want to walk away a few things he said stuck with me. Surprisingly he and I shared a similar outlook on a number of issues, which was comforting to me to see that I am not alone in...

I think it is due to the erosion of families. Mothers no longer stay home with their young children, and fathers are no where to be seen in a large percentage of families. The kids don't have a father figure, and I think this leads to joining gangs, dropping out of school, and criminal behavior. Am...

Do we reveal too much with social media?They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Well I just feel like some people are talking too much. I know proud parents want to show every milestone of their child but when you see 100 pictures of Junior bobbing his head up and down it can be annoying....
