What Happened To Dignity And Class In Political Discussions?
One of the frustrating things for me about 2013 America is that people no longer have the dignity to “call a spade a spade”. No matter what heinous thing any member of their political party does, they’re not willing to admit that person was wrong (presumably because it would taint the integrity of the entire party).
I swear, a congressman could eat a kitten on the front steps of the capitol and everyone in his party would defend him like “kitties are tasty” are part of the party platform. It’s gotten even worse than that though with constant name calling, some of the most offensive nature (adding ‘tard to the end of adjective isn’t particularity as clever as they think) . Then there are those that want to escalate the conversation to threats of violence. Add to these, those people who immediately spring to defense of their party without even bothering to look at what ever situation or report put them in the news.
I myself have been trolled by many of these types and they all have one thing in common: a lack of education. With all due respect, I don’t trust the political opinion of anyone who didn’t take the time to learn to spell. If you have the ability to purchase a computer and troll websites, then you should have plenty of time to figure out why your little blogs have all the red lines under them.
I think as a whole Americans are better than what we see on social media. Good people are good people and bad people are bad people no matter who they vote for or support. Don’t stoop to the level of the angry, uneducated and ill-informed trolls out there, if you need to express an opinion, do it with dignity and class.
