Liberal Losing Racist Trump Supporter!

Current proclivities dictate that if you say something good about Trump you’re a right wing racist supporter.

If, on the other hand, you say something bad about Trump you’re a liberal losing leftist.

This tactic on both sides not only stifles free speech, it’s extremely depressing, a form of bullying carried on mostly by people who do not know how to make a good argument on whatever topic is referenced.

During the election Glenn Greenwald felt compelled to pin this sentiment up on his twitter feed:

ggtweet

What does it say about us and where we are headed?

How do we combat this, or can we?

Must we justify what we are about to say with an apology first pinned to our twitter and facebook feeds?

“I didn’t vote for Trump but…”

“I voted for Trump but…”

Shall every response start with a  shortened version:

#IVFTB

#IDVFTB

Is it really necessary to run in circles, side step or curb dialogue for fear or hurt feelings, offending someone in advance, to express an opinion, address or speak the truth?

Could this be a sign of the great divide that will see this country break apart?

Did this rhetoric play itself out in the Chicago Torture Case?

Further thoughts on the topic to come, but please share your views…
