  • Where the "divisiveness" comes from.

    Mostly, from young (d)'s.

    And conversely, older Republicans on this forum are more likely to despise the other party

      So....I see our liberal/communist/anti-American institutions of higher learning have managed to indoctrinate, (read brainwash) a lot of our youth into non-acceptance of any viewpoint other than the current politically correct opinion. I wonder, do any of these institutions of higher learning teach our youngsters to think, or just follow along with the current opinion of the herd?
      Scary scenario, is it not?

        Having known a good many older Republicans and plenty of politically active college students, I believe that true intolerance is much more evident in the younger crowd.

        Even prejudiced oldsters typically have a sense of "live and let live," or at least "stay out of my business and I'll stay out of yours." And a sense of the basic Constitutional rights applying to everyone.

        Many of the young lefties nowadays would be perfectly happy to see several of the Amendments just go away. And plenty of types of people just go away.

          With persons of high positions, especially those in our educational areas, both elementary and high schools, and of course in later years, universities, there is no better place for all of the students in education, to be indoctrinated, spoon fed, and yes, even brainwashed ! Young children being impressed of teachers who are in impressive positions will believe what ever is fed them about almost any angle that is being professed. Start early, and subsequent years build on and enforce deeper angles and ‘theories’ ! If subjects taught are basics, such as math, reading, history, social studies and government, that would be considered a general education. But, when teachers introduce their own concepts of their political ideologues, racial arguments, social justice leanings, that is where indoctrination enters the issue and then students can be too easily influenced into a thinking on the same scale. Teachers with the intentions of guiding pupils in ways of their own social or even racial concepts are very dangerous in our educational system. Just stick to the basics and leave personal leanings out of it. JMHO

            The table of a recent pole was just on the news tonight - the Dems are the ones who despise. You got it backwards AGAIN.
            One question was would you date a person of the opposite party? Dems overwhelmy, 65% said NO. Conservative about 20% NO.

              There are about five or six members of this forum who regard anyone to the left of them on any subject as pure Communist.
              I am a lifelong registered Republican, and am regularly insulted by these individuals because I do not share their admiration for Donald Trump.

                My disdain for the quality of your arguments hasn't got anything to do with Trump. Trump was a surprisingly good President because he tried to maintain a more sensible role for the government. He was bombastic and goofy but he put America and the American citizen first. He labeled the media for what they are, and got less support from the Republicans than he should have. You seem to be a Colin Powell, Bush 43, Rino. The Constitution, the Republic, and the concept of Americanism, is in danger and you seem oblivious to it.

                  Quoted from the HAPOPS: "I am a lifelong registered Republican, and am regularly insulted by these individuals because I do not share their admiration for Donald Trump."

                  Not quite so. I find it hard to believe that a "lifelong registered Republican" could force himself to vote for an empty suit, with no good political accomplishment, a criminal background, scandals that cannot be hidden, and dementia, over the Republican candidate. Any Republican candidate. QED, he is not a "lifelong registered Republican", or, his unreasonable hate for Donald Trump is so soul consuming and overwhelming, he voted to send America down the path to socialism.
                  As to the second part of the assertion that he is "regularly insulted by these individuals because I do not share their admiration for Donald Trump," that is not quite a true statement, either.
                  The HAPOPS is regularly insulted because he makes inane statements, quotes fake news from tilted, discredited, far left sources, and adds nothing of substance or value to any blog discussion he participates in. His participation consists of idiotic quotes or statements.
                  Enough about a nonentity who is very possibly housed in a mental institution.

                    There is a certain segment of both parties that is reflexively hateful and tribalistic. Not sure of the cause but it immediately is recognisable simply by it's simplistic nature. Almost like a pavlonian response to trigger words like Clinton or Trump or similar. Communist, white nationalist, Republican etc.

                      Notice too that they have such a problem, with any opinions that don't match their own, that they can't even deal with simply not responding, or arguing the alternative, they have to block the very ideas in case they might actually read something too contrary for their brains to handle. Start smoking like an overloaded circuit.

                        The other party is about as accurate in its description of the problems facing America as Jesse Smollett. It is difficult to argue with a position as divorced from reality as the murderous Democrats of the current iteration.

                          lab - You always speak in general terms, or as the courts said of Trump's affidavits, they are conclusory.
                          For example, you might say that Joe Biden incited the riot of Jan 6th on the capitol, and blamed it on Donald Trump.

                            No. I might say that Democrats incited riots during 2020 that resulted in billions of dollars of damages and dozens of deaths and thousands of police injuries. I might say that Democrats, including the current vice president of these United States encouraged bailing out rioters which led to even more violent crime. I might say that and furthermore I'd be correct in saying it.

                              Another generality.
                              The Democrats are bad people.
                              And the devil made them do it.
