I understand why lifelong conservatives (like reader Dreidel, for example) need to indulge in “Hillary and Trump are the same” narratives. I even feel sympathy because seeing your party become what the GOP has become can’t be easy.
But I can’t accept Liberals who promote this narrative. Their complete intellectual and moral collapse is painful to observe. It’s like looking at putrefying corpses of people I used to like.
Which is why I have deleted such folks (total number: 16) from my Facebook and blog roll It’s easier to pretend they emigrated to Mongolia than to keep seeing their degradation.
I’m better than anybody I know at having good relationships with people of opposing political views. But observing the agony of formerly vibrant intellects is intolerable.
