I agree with a lot of what has been said, but in all honesty conservatives are, not all, the same way. I have been disrespected, for have progressive views. Being a white American Muslim, I have been harassed and dismissed because of the Rhetoric from Trump and his supporters. It isn’t just Trump supporters who are victims. It is also important to note that it was news outlets like CNN that helped to get Trump elected for the exact same reason that conservatives say that the media is troublesome. They covered Trump and gave him free Publicity because they knew Trump would bring in more viewers.
That said, many liberals are really dicks who are tremendously narrow-minded. In many instances, I’ve found more common ground with those on the other end of the political spectrum than those who ”share” the same political views as me. It is sad that the political climate has caused there to be such a divide in our nation. That said it goes both ways, and comes from both sides.
Really sad that we have allowed outside forces to interfere with our relationships and create this political divide.
