What divides us
January 13, 2022
To The Eagle:
I don’t dislike you because we have differences of opinion about national policy or because you vote Republican and I vote Democrat.
No. I dislike you because you don’t accept truth and facts that don’t conform to your perception of reality.
I dislike you because you cheered on a man while he mocked a disabled reporter in a crowd and made sexist and racist comments. And continued to cheer for that same man, when he called the press the enemy of the people, and encouraged violence against reporters and political opponents.
I dislike you because you repeat the lies of a would be autocrat. And, finally, I dislike you because of your tacit approval of the January 6, 2021, insurrection that the former president encouraged.
No. It’s not the fact that you are a Republican and I’m a Democrat that divides us. What divides us is that you’ve forgotten the principles for which our country was founded on and sided with a bully.
