Thoughtful, sensitive Democrat: It’s okay to hate Republicans


In our era of polarization, one party is guiltier than the other.

I hate Republicans. I can’t stand the thought of having to spend the next two years watching Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, Ted Cruz, Darrell Issa or any of the legions of other blowhards denying climate change, thwarting immigration reform or championing fetal “personhood”…

…According to a recent study 
by Stanford professor Shanto
 Iyengar and Princeton researcher 
Sean Westwood, such polarization has increased dramatically 
in recent years. What’s noteworthy 
is how entrenched this mutual animus is.

It’s fine for me to use the word “hate” when referring to Republicans and for them to use the same word about me, but you would never use the word “hate” when referring to people of color, or women, or gays and lesbians…

    Funny considering that most of the hateful blogging and tweeting we see on line comes almost exclusively from the political left.

      There’s a lot of it out there.

      And the actual violence, something they share with the Islamists. It is always interesting that none of them are willing to immigrate to a country that has everything they like such as Cuba, North Korea and several others.

    “….Today, marrying a Republican is unimaginable to me…”

    What makes this troglodyte think she is such a prize catch?

    — She says “back in the 70’s she worked for a Republican”.
    Back in the 70’s??
    Holy fuck! Did you go to elementary school with Wilma Flintstone?

      Hey, I resemble that age bracket. Campaigned for Bob Stanfield back in the day.

            Ah, thanks for giving me my new fact of the day. I like to acquire at least five per day and you’ve given me a head start.

            Btw not familiar with Stanfield but assume that was quite awhile ago

          • Clausewitz

            Stanfield was the PC leader who ran against Trudeau the Elder back in the late 60’s and early 70’s. Best Prime Minister we never had since Trudeau ran against his platform and then 6 months later “stole” his platform.

    I hate religion. Leftism has become a religion.

    I’d suggest that the writer is giving academics a bad name, but it’s too late. On the other hand, she probably is a Hillary supporter.
