This is not my normal kind of topic, I know.
I don't want to debate the politics of the day, Left vs Right, Liberal vs Conservative, Democrat vs Republican, Black vs White, Men vs Women. I just don't want to talk about ANY of that, that's not what this channel was made for.
If you have something constructive to offer, please, comment. You're not going to get a reaction from me with negative, trolling or hateful comments about the "Other side" Your comment will just be deleted and you will be blocked. You'll accomplish nothing but prove the point of this video.
What I want to talk about the tone of those debates. Something has changed and something is very wrong with HOW we express these disagreements with each other.
The level of hatred for people who are different is frankly becoming a bit scary. The internet has provided a platform for people to express the most vile, disgusting and violent calls for people they disagree with to be destroyed. And yet neither side wants to admit that these things are coming from their own members.
The folks who were screaming in rage 8 years ago are scoffing at the folks screaming in rage now and all I hear is hypocritical calls for the other side to submit. The ones who couldn't "get over it" 8 years ago now want the other side to "get over it" and refuse to see the hypocrisy. The ones who can't "get over it" now refuse to see they are no better than those who were feeling this way 8 years ago. It's a dangerous circle.
Maybe I'm making more out of than is necessary, I don't know. But the tone of the rhetoric on both sides concerns me so much that I felt compelled to speak.
I hope for unity, I hope for reason. I hope both sides can both acknowledge the other side and admit their own faults. We should be able to find unity somewhere in there.
