Leftist intolerance again

They shut out anything that might threaten their beliefs

A survey shows a significant number of Democratic women are reacting to Hillary Clinton’s unexpected election loss by blocking, “unfollowing” and “unfriending” people on social media who express political opinions they don’t like.

Thirty percent of Democratic women reported cutting off online communication with someone for political reasons since the Nov. 8 election, according to a Public Religion Research Institute poll published Monday. They are more than twice as likely to blot out dissenting points of view from their social media timelines as Democratic men, who reported doing so at a 14 percent rate.

The survey found Republicans have been more tolerant of opposing points of view since Donald Trump’s election victory. Just 10 percent of Republican women and 8 percent of Republican men reported unfriending people on social media for political reasons.

The PRRI poll is one of several indications that this year’s presidential race had a particularly injurious effect on friendships and even marriages between those who hold opposing political beliefs.

Mr. Mitchell said the ability to form relationships with political adversaries is instrumental to a flourishing society and the mutual pursuit of truth. He said friendship should be seen as a higher good than politics.

“If we can’t be friends across political differences, then our civil fabric frays, and we become enemies who can’t communicate, and that is sort of a scary trend,” he said.

Some women wanted Hillary elected simply because she is female; they apparently were not concerned that she is a liar, a crook, and not competent to be President.

Anon 1:59 - Because he is Black is a primary reason why Obama was elected President. Not the only reason but it was enough to make a huge difference and is a primary reason he won.

I suspect Hillary won the popular vote mainly because she was a woman and not because of her accomplishments.

Another way to look at this is that roughly a fifth of Democratic women are rabid ideologues and the rest are more reasonable. The problem with the democratic party is that the ideologues are making the decisions which is why you have lifelong democrats voting for Trump. I may be enjoyable to watch the progressives implode but the republicans have come extremely close to doing the same several times in recent years for the same reason. that is why we need break the two party dominance in the USA because shared power and alliances make for better governance.

So an NRA or Donald Trump t-shirt would be, like, the perfect way for a young man to pre-screen his dates and avoid the loonies from the get-go. That's good knowledge to have.

Everyone bangs on about the popular vote. If you remove CA and NY from the overall picture Trump secured 3 million more votes in the remaining states than Clinton. That says it all. The majority of states didn't want Clinton. If the vote had gone the other way the Dems wouldn't tolerate the behaviour the Dems have displayed over Trump's win. It's a democracy, live with it.
