Response to Scootaloo (Reply #4)

104. Bernie is welcome to hang in and help defeat the GOP,

his liberal supporters and other not-so-liberal supporters are welcome to hang in.

It's certain behaviors I would be glad to see go. I'm tired of incessant insults, mischaracterizations, and outright lies about my candidate, my party, and liberals like me.

I'm tired of the profound contempt for the wishes, opinions, sacred beliefs, and even civil rights of every single person in America who is not with them. I'm now tired of the no-longer-surprising revelations of the destructive, absolutist, anti-democracy actions some people would be capable of or support in pursuit of their agenda.

I'm tired of the unending flow of right wing propaganda brought to DU and the constant attack, attack, attack, like a broken record skipping on Hillary 24/7/365. And I'm tired of the miserable, defeatist pessimism and unbalanced anti-Americanism of so many.

I'm tired of extremism of any type. When it's not irritating as hell or scary as hell, it's just boring as hell.

Extremism is a perspective or viewpoint that demonizes those with opposing viewpoints, using all-or-none thinking to characterize people as either “fully for” or “fully against” the group’s views, and identifying certain people outside the group as having less innate value on a basic human level.
