Well thats because you are the type of person to think people fit into rigid teams and all think and behave the same based on which side they vote for. The way the angry people on the internet act you would think the entire "left" is jobless eco-protesters foaming at the mouth over Trump being an idiot and the entire right are Klan members with their boots on the throats of little mexican children while yelling bible verses and cutting health care for orphans.

People are pretty normal in day to day conversation. There are 12 people in this building now other than me. Me and one other person are the only non Trump supporters. These are older white southerners mostly males. Dont be shocked they vote republican now.

I dont agree with their politics but its not like we sit around talking about it all day. I bought all 12 breakfast from this place yesterday:

And one old white lady brought me some cookies she baked yesterday. We all just chill. I see the confederate flag emblem, NRA sticker, and Trump/Pence shit on her car. Think im bringing it up? Like....I wanna argue with this old lady about her beliefs? Shes nice to me. I look out for her when I can. I gave her time off till tuesday so she wont have to rush home after thanksgiving out of town.

People arent that different in a day to day conversation. We all really need to ease up on "The right...!" and "The left...." shit.

It just makes it harder to meet in the middle which is the only way to accomplish anything.

politics is just fun & games to people now. they're in it for the shits & giggles. they wanna be a part of something. ask some random schmuck on either side to give you a run down on their political ideology or to do something as simple as defining liberalism/conservatism. instead they'll yell 'build the wall' or 'all republicans are evil'. or tell u some cliche partisan shit that they heard one of their circle jerk buddies say. or make a video like the one op posted to trigger the other side and get lulz out of it. people are amazing.

what are your political ideologies, op? what are your philosophies & world views, hmm?

The video in the OP is 100% correct.

However, it was the same thing with Obama in terms of FOX news and Republican congressmen...

We live in an extremely, progressively so, closed dialogue, closed minded society in which 98%+ of people are bordering retardation.

Trump does seem to be an even bigger lightning rod for reasons other than what he actually does... I think it's because he's an entertainer to be honest and his personality is such.

Itís also surprising that most of the media genuinely donít know what the 1st amendment is. They seem to genuinely believe that people expressing negative opinions about the media is ďan attack on the 1st amendmentĒ.
