You know, I can remember as a kid back in the 70's and later as a young(er) adult in the 80's and 90's that liberals and conservatives always had huge
differences in political philosophy and ideology. I can remember liberals and conservatives always vehemently disagreeing over their political
postures. I can remember protests even over their ideologies between conservatives and liberals.
However, I can NOT remember a time when political opposition openly hoped, pleaded, for the destruction of the entire country. I can't remember that
ever happening. I can't remember people actively wishing for a worldwide financial meltdown, or a nuclear war, just to spite a single person or
president. I can't remember that.
Am I missing something here?
With the exception of Trump, one of the most universally disliked and polarizing presidents I can recall is probably a toss up between Bush Jr. and
Obama. However, even then I don't remember the opposition actively wishing for the downfall of the entire country just to smite their political foe.
I don't remember that.
Yet today we have people gleefully talking about nuclear war with North Korea because it will smite Trump, actively wishing for a cataclysmic global
financial crisis because it will finally finally justify their vitriol about Trump. I never thought I would see a time when the political opposition
(read liberals in this case) would openly wish for harm to themselves, their loved ones and all their fellow countrymen just to prove some point.
Something has fundamentally changed in people's mindset. What is it?
