. At least when it comes to speech that is hateful, degrading, condescending, etc. I am not speaking of calm, well mannered words said from either side
Do you think calling Democrats assholes is being calm and well mannered? It's trolling pure and simple. Playing right into the hands of those that want to destroy America with divide and conquer tactics. Is that what you want?
I'm a registered Republican btw but you aren't winning any converts to your way of thinking. Hypocrisy seldom does by using the same tactics you accuse others of using.
assholes indeed...disagreements are one thing and name-calling and trolling is another.
People take thread titles so very seriously...
It's actually a little pathetic. A thread title is supposed to grab attention & interest & being controversial will get people to click on it. It's becoming an epidemic to let thread titles get you so riled up despite the actual content.

Ahh I just mentioned this, let's keep the guys in DC out of this. I'm talking about what I run into on the street, about what I see online. My personal experiences with real people, the 99 percent.
I feel like if we started a revolution, and anyone in the group said " in the name of God, let's take our nation back!" some of the left would go against them for PC reasons alone. But.. Maybe my perception is skewed, or biased. Maybe everyone is equal parts nice and kind, and equal parts condescending and rude.
