"I'm so damned tired of trying to see it from the 'other side'"

"I am so damn tired of trying to see it from the 'other side,' of trying to discuss nuance, while they paint us and our candidates with the broadest of hateful brushes instead ... If you voted for Trump, Iím tired of trying to see things your way when you sit in your holier than thou churches/white power meet ups refusing to see mine. Am I lumping you in with white supremacists? No. You did that yourselves. You voted for a candidate endorsed by the KKK. For the rest of your lives you will know that you voted the same way as the KKK.

"Iím tired of pussy footing around what offends your morals while couching what offends mine. Because racism and homophobia and misogyny and xenophobia offend mine. Let me say it here: if you voted for trump I do think youíre racist. I do think youíre homophobic. I do think youíre misogynist. Racism, homophobia and misogyny are all spectrums and youíre on it. You might not be 'cheering while a black man gets lynched racist' but boy did you just sell them the rope and look the other way."

Let me repeat that for the benefit of my fellow Democrats who keep telling us to stop calling out Trump supporters so we don't offend them.

2. I Refuse To Try

Nobody who voted for him thought it through except those who let fear or hate guide their vote
The rest are ignorant drones
I will never have sympathy or empathy toward them.
