I’m no fan of talk show host and comedian Ellen Degeneres at all. I never liked her but for once, I’ll love her for this just for this one time… Ellen goes to an NFL football game that she got invited to and she got special seating at the game. Unexpectedly, she gets a seat next to our former president George W. Bush and his wife, Laura. This sparked an uproar on twitter and here is Ellen brilliantly defending herself on this… clearly shutting down the “outrage” crowd we live in these days.
In this segment on her talk show, she says we should be kind to one another even if we don’t agree with our political views. She says it’s okay to be friends with people even if they have opposing views with each other and I totally agree.
Ya know, I maybe a very conservative guy and I do have some “leftist” friends in my life. I don’t really hate the hardcore left and I’m willing to be friends with “liberals” just as long as they respect my views. I don’t hate liberals like some would think, I respect and LOVE all people. Really I do.
Even if I’m a pretty conservative guy… not only do I have some liberal friends and family members, I also have liberal fans and supporters. When I have liberal fans and supporters, they don’t support me ’cause of my politics, they probably support me ’cause of my bodybuilding/powerlifting and they enjoy my music since I’m a musician. They support me anyways ’cause they are adult enough that it’s okay to support people who you don’t agree with politically. I’m even willing to date a liberal woman if I had to.
We still live in a divided country. I’ve always said for a pretty long time on my blogs that this “right vs. left” battles we keep having constantly is just silly and not good for America. We still need to figure out a way to unite ’cause we need to knock off this “right vs. left” crap.
I’ve had too many liberals over the years attacking me for my political views and I’ve had many leftist people refusing to talk to me only because I’m “conservative”. That’s not how America should be.
I love Ellen for this. We really need to stop hating on each other over politics ’cause once again, it’s not good for America.
It is possible to love someone even if you don’t agree with them politically… you should try it, lefties. It’s not that hard. Shame on the media ’cause the mainstream press is partly responsible for dividing the nation.
