83. Who TOLD you that and why are you repeating something so bigoted?

If someone told you that bigotry is just fine as long as it isn't aimed at black people, let me disabuse you. It's the same thing.

And it comes from within, not from the target. People who'd rush to hose hostility and resentment against a 67-year-old woman who's voted every election since she turned 21 are bound to have plenty more of that where it comes from. Maybe you should wonder ahead of time which groups you might think you have social permission to turn it against and whether you should.

Btw, speaking of blame: Can YOU say you've voted every election since you were eligible? AND that you always voted for Democrats who could be elected to stop Republicans? I've voted, in GEs for the top Democratic candidates, to stop global warming, for civil rights, strong regulation on business, labor rights, healthcare, environmental protection, and everything else you imagine are your issues EVERY election of my life.

Can you say the same? Your statement, to my mind, does not reflect the awareness and understanding I would expect of even a young person who has. It ignores the enormous differences between what the Republican Party has become and who Democrats are. It reveals no awareness of that or what's been happening at all.

Even in people who haven't studied and don't understand developments in our nation and the world over the past 15 years, how can any person not understand the choices between good and evil that have become so clear to anyone who just looks around? And the good and evil are not between you and your grandma.
