Completely agree. Myself and most people I know (mostly conservatives) walk through life trying to keep our head down. If we see something offensive, we look the other way. We change the channel. We walk out of the store. Life it too short to be angry all the time. I troll a lot online, but that's just my online persona. IRL I'm no bark, no bite.
But liberals? You have BLM, you have this guy in the news who just shot a postal worker in NY who looked like Donald Trump. You have gays suing Christian bakeries and flower shops, you have an abortion doctor charging protesters with a knife. It's insane. The left needs to get out of this mentality of looking for problems, and creating them if they can't find any.
And you conservatives have people beat and hang a gay guy on a fence (Matthew Shepherd), one that shoots a Doctor who performs abortions while he is at church (George Tiller), another who tries to blow up an abortion clinic (nutjob in colorado springs), one that walks into a prayer meeting and shoots nine people dead because they are black (Dylan Roof). Do you really want to play this game?
Conservatives can be both left or right or centrist. Conservatives can be fiscally conservatives and social liberals. Conservatives can be religious or not. Conservatives can be Democrats or Republicans.
Youre not playing this game very well.
Liberals can be all of the above as well, I think I play the game very well, someone calls names, I point the finger back at them. I am tired of the broad brush being used to paint all that those you disagree with. Common sense would tell me that we have more in common than not.
Americans need to find some common sense answers to some serious questions, or this division will continue.
What I find interesting is that you were not the one I quoted or responded to, but you felt the need to defend your "side", I would imagine that SJW and snowflake will not be far behind.
According to authorities, Jasskirat Saini, 20, of Central Park Road, was arrested at 12:38 p.m. for multiple bias incidents at Nassau Community College.
Several days after the U.S presidential election in November, a female student at the University of Michigan reported being attacked by a man who threatened that if she did not remove her hijab, her would set her on fire.
The student told police that the obeyed the man’s order before fleeing the scene and reporting the incident. She described the perpetrator as a white male between the ages of 20 and 30. University police alerted students of the alleged crime, and said they were “disturbed by this report of hate crime in our community.” The FBI was called in to investigate.
Now police in Ann Arbor have determined that the “hate crime” never happened. After conducting multiple interviews and reviewing surveillance footage, investigators found “numerous inconsistencies” in the alleged victim’s statements, which led them to conclude that she made it all up.

Two mosques were attacked by arsonists over the Christmas holiday
The Council on American-Islamic Relations has requested California police investigate the attack as a hate crime, and that Houston police look into a possible bias motive in the arson.
Both attacks come as anti-Islamic rhetoric has found a new home as a political platform in the U.S. in the wake of attacks carried out by terrorists in San Bernardino, Calif., and Paris. Donald Trump is certainly the main offender, but he is far from the only one.

France: An imam confesses to vandalizing his own mosque
November 17, 2013 1:46 pm By Robert Spencer
The imam “confessed that he did so to settle scores with others at the mosque.” That seems a strange way to settle internal disputes, however. Graffiti found on Muslim installations generally casts suspicion on “Islamophobes,” which is why Hamas-linked CAIR and other Muslims have not hesitated to stoop even to fabricating “hate crimes,” including attacks on mosques. CAIR and other groups like it want and need hate crimes against Muslims, because they can use them for political points and as weapons to intimidate people into remaining silent about the jihad threat.

Case in point, Michael Greene, cop killer:
Kind of silly to think that evil/stupidity is a partisan issue, dontcha think?
