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

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.As Mark Twain once observed, "Most people get their religious and political views second hand and without reflection."
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 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.
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?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.
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".are waking up to the fact that the majority of Americans on both sides just don’t hold with these extreme beliefs.
