I’m noticing that Ellen’s segment on telling Americans that it’s okay to be friends with people you disagree with politically is triggering people on both sides of the spectrum… the right and the left. Both sides are losing their minds and calling her out. Not all of them are, though… there are some people on both sides who actually agrees with her.
Yeah, I don’t really like George W. Bush, don’t really like Obama, don’t like Bernie and don’t really like Hillary but if I ever met them in person… I wouldn’t be mean to them and would be kind to them anyway. Some people can have the most insane and crazy ideas when it comes to political views but it’s still possible to treat them like real humans. We are all human and we all have feelings.
We really need to knock off this “right vs. left” crap ’cause it’s getting old and tiresome, ya know? Admittedly, I’ve been pretty harsh and mean to liberals online over the years but I’ve been trying to calm down and have been trying to be “apolitical” more. I think I may as well become “apolitical”… ya know, shut up about politics for good and just focus on music and weightlifting. Admittedly, I haven’t been letting lefties speak their minds when I should.
A lot of conservatives say lefties are “intolerant” but conservatives can be just as bad as the left. The conservative community is pretty divided for that reason. This isn’t how America should be. We need to come together and love each other as a whole. That’s what Ellen trying to say and the more you hate on her, the more it proves her point. The same goes for lefties who are always hating on conservatives and Republican voters.
We really need to unite pretty badly, though and Ellen has a lot of balls for saying it. Give it time… is Ellen about to be blacklisted ’cause she all of a sudden had “center-like” views in politics? I wouldn’t be surprised if she’ll start getting the Roseanne Barr treatment.
