The hate seems to come more from the right than the left, but both sides are guilty of such hate.

Senile Texas Aggie




More hate from the right? Really? I find this reprehensible.

These people and their followers want to round up 70 million people who voted for Trump and send them to a gulag for re-education. It must be how they show their love for their fellow Americans.

Please note. This is a CIVIL discussion, no name calling, no angry comments, no ugly.

A person could pull up just as many headlines to the contrary. It all depends on your outlook and perspective. The internet offers many options to state a person's opinion. :)

Our own beliefs and opinions are what make us unique and special.

These are from the tweets of a far left socialist part of the party. What I find so disturbing is the rest of the party falls in behind them. Maybe some of the losers on this round are waking up to the fact that the majority of Americans on both sides just don’t hold with these extreme beliefs. But they still support the far leftists with their silence. Please find headlines with actual quotes or tweets from Dems denouncing this madness. My mind is not a closed box.

I’ll be the first to say that Trump is a big mouth buffoon. He just needs to shut up sometimes. I can see why people are put off by him. I am too.

No way I can vote for a socialist agenda. I’ll take freedom and the buffoon.

Another thing, how many Republican “peaceful protestors” have rioted, burned and looted cities? Where’s the videos of destruction?

Yes, there’s far right racist idiots out there too. I denounce them.

As Mark Twain once observed, "Most people get their religious and political views second hand and without reflection."
As a Catholic with 7 kids I used to work with once said "It is easier to create them than convert them". And I think he is right. A good majority of people are raised with particular religious or political beliefs and as you and Twain said, never question or challenge them.

These people and their followers want to round up 70 million people who voted for Trump and send them to a gulag for re-education. It must be how they show their love for their fellow Americans.
The issue is "these people" are a very small but vocal minority. I would say that MOST non conservatives would disagree with the concept of "re-education in the Gulag". I also ASSUME that MOST conservatives do not put up groups like the Proud Boys as their standard bearer. I could be wrong on this (but hope I am not).

These are from the tweets of a far left socialist part of the party. What I find so disturbing is the rest of the party falls in behind them.
Again, I do not think the rest of the party are "falling in behind". I wonder how the rest of the conservatives in the House are going to deal with Marjorie Taylor Greene, a Republican congresswoman-elect from Georgia. Outspoken QANON "member". Are they going to "fall in line" with her?

are waking up to the fact that the majority of Americans on both sides just don’t hold with these extreme beliefs.
Exactly!!!! I think the country would be better served by a "party" in the middle. You can't please everyone but I think a lot more people would be well served if it weren't the far left or far right that run the show. Everyone gets "something" they want as opposed to "all of mine, none of yours".

I offer this:
"On October 16, 2020, Gallup polling found that 31% of Americans identified as Democrats, 31% identified as Republican, and 36% as Independent."
The quote is from Wikipedia with the source being this poll. Interesting that they didn't include any of the "minor" parties. I guess they are the "unaccounted for" 2%.
