kking, in my opinion, you are one best conservative posters on this site and one of the few that can discuss the issues without hurling insults, belittling others, claiming intellectual superiority and other trollish nonsense.  That is appreciated on my part.

 

I will give this a read and post my thoughts on the content.  I'll be back...

Thanks for the kind words.

absolutely not.  I have no problem with them denying MAGA folks service in their places of business, but criminal behavior by anyone against anyone else is not justified.  We need to beat the clown squad at the ballot box.

Fair enough. I happen to agree the a private business should have the right to refuse business to anyone, even if it's usually unwise. 

 

Some highlights from the piece (emphases mine):

Quote

I started making a proactive effort to break my echo chamber by listening to voices I thought I would disagree with. I wanted to understand their perspective, believing it would confirm that they were filled with hate for anyone that wasn’t like them.
That turned out not to be the case. The more voices outside of the left I listened to, the more I realized that these were not bad people. They were not racists, nazis, or white supremacists. We had differences of opinions on social and economic issues, but a difference of opinion does not make your opponent inherently evil. And they could justify their opinions using arguments, rather than the shouting and ranting I had seen coming from my side of the aisle.

Quote

The funny thing about that [free speech] hat is that it’s completely open to interpretation. When I wear it around left-leaning people, they think I’m talking about the right. When I wear it around right-leaning folks, they think I’m talking about the left. It’s a really stark reminder of how much our own perspectives and biases play into how we view the world.

Quote

With Trump, there was a genuinely optimistic view of the future. With the Democrats, it was doom and gloom.

[Regarding the last quote, even as someone who is partial to pessimism is most matters, recognizing who stifling it can be to something that requires energy and enthusiasm and tangible action - such as a political campaign - is key to good strategy.

It's one person's opinion..

 

But it's rather revealing and honest..

 

The author is not alone.

 

Many dems have been going to Trump rallies.

 

Something big is happening...and the dems are very worried.

absolutely... if they sue me, I might have to relent... but, as a guy who was taught to always take his hat off inside a restaurant, if I ever owned a restaurant, I'd make everybody take their hats off if they wanted to eat there.  I would gladly put up a sign in the front window of any business that I owned that said, "Clown supporters NOT WELCOME... Keep walking!"

I don't think any restaurant owner would put such a sign in his window...

..Not a successful one at least..

 

By bringing politics in it isn't a good thing...

People go to have a meal...

 

Kinda like that football player..

He thought on Sunday people wanted to go to a football game and talk politics...

He's looking for a job today

so what?  The KKK is clearly now inside the republican tent.  David Duke is a YUGE clown supporter.

Interesting that a white supremacist is supporting the most pro-Israel president perhaps ever. Is it possible that even white supremacists have fallen for the "I don't want to waste my vote, so I'm not going to vote third party"-lie?

America white supremacists care a lot more about suppressing blacks in America than they do about suppressing Jews in Israel.

How has Trump suppressed blacks? Surely David Duke is disappointed if that was his reasoning for voting for Trump.

And you're alright with keeping Trump supporters out of restaurants but support a party that wants open borders?

Not to paint everyone with the same brush, but we've reached a point where the left is much more intolerant of political opponents than the right. A good piece by a newly-self-aware Democrat.
