I don't even get the other side anymore.
Americans can't travel. We're stuck here because we mismanaged COVID. I've been a bartender for 20 years and I quit my job because these assholes think it's more important that they get to have a drink than I ever see my 78 year old mother again.

Black people can't get a fair shake in this country because mass incarceration is the new slavery for big corporations. I'm now a paralegal student. Kansas City has the 49th out of 50 record of defendants not getting access to legal aid. I start my internship with Legal Aid of Kansas City in December.
Fuck Republicans. You either care about humans or you care about money. Fuck you.

Yes, I'm referring to toxic Bernie supporters online that will say sexist/racist comments on twitter to supporters of other candidates or took over the politics subreddit and insta-block any posts that's positive about another candidate, but also the ones that I've seen in person.

I started out as a Bernie supporter but I found that another candidate had better policies. Once I switched and started volunteering, I started to see that Bernie Bros were real. Everyone I volunteered with also had a story about Bernie Bros. As an Asian person canvassing in a very red Trump area of Long Island, I found that some of racist things Trump supporters have said (one told me that he killed a lot of people like me in the Korean War) were more pleasant than what I experienced with Bernie Bros.

The experiences that I and other volunteers had are anecdotal and it is likely a small percentage of Bernie supporters that exhibit this behavior, but to say that it is made up is nonsense. I think Bernie has the best intentions for the people, that is why I supported him, but when he said that Bernie Bros are Russian bots, I lost some respect for him.

Also, the Intercept is so pro-Bernie and anti-everyone else that I couldn't read/listen to them anymore after years of following them.

I'm not convinced you're not being Father Malleyed by Kari. She is a comically ridiculous cartoon of a right-winger. If she's real she's definitely a she in the way she hates on Chemda and somehow not on Keith.

But I still think you're being trolled. Nobody can be this ridiculous.

Being an asshole is the point for many people. It keeps them from their pain. We are a country built on unresolved trauma after unresolved trauma.

If you like Bernie or if you like Biden, fucking vote. There are elections and primaries every year. More often you vote, more politicians will court you for your vote.

I don't even think Keith moved that much in his opinions, it's just that Republicans have become batshit crazy. The first time I remember Keith going "HUH?!" was when Sarah Palin showed up, which was when a lot of people started questioning things. It's only gotten more ridiculous after that with the tea party and then Trump and his gang of clowns.

I've always wondered where trump came up with his squirrel-assed hairdo. After seeing the picture of Mary, now I get it.

This is why we all need friends. Friends would not let you leave the house with the same hairdo your mom has.

It might be literally the same hair.
A kind of family heirloom.

So triggered over a letter. You proved her letter at least partially correct by your reaction. I barely listen anymore, but I can't deny that you've gone off the deep end politically. I guess tolerance only applies to people who agree with you?
