Here’s yet another example of the broken political system in the United States. It’s not enough to disagree with people and have a respectful debate. Nope. When we disagree with the other side, we resort to Facebook memes like this:
This one comes from the left side of politics. The suggestion is that if you’re a Republican, you’re a racist who hates everything sane in the world. I know a lot of conservatives, and I can’t say I’ve met one who hates everything on this list.
The “We hate blacks” and “We hate blacks voting” is perhaps the most ridiculous of all. The creators of this piece of stupidity apparently forgot the long history of Southern Democrats owning slaves before the Civil War and fighting Civil Rights tooth and nail in the 1960s.
Republicans hate education and feel women are “a lesser cut of meat”? I know many Republicans who care very much about education. And that lesser meat quote came from one deeply misguided individual.
Conservatives aren’t innocent victims here. They’ve produced more than their fair share of vitriol. Case in point, this meme suggesting only liberal Democrats would go shoot up a movie theater.
The trash flows both ways.
