Neither of these people live in bubbles. They are both red-state Democrats who (I can attest) know enough conservatives/Republicans to presumably have a decent understanding of what we actually believe. And yet both posted these disgusting calumnies.

Emotion has completely swallowed reason. It will only get worse from here.
