Leftists love to put on a good show.  They wave flags, they plaster a sincere look on their faces when women talk about abuse, and they really, really hate people who disagree with them.  Take, for example, this friendship advice from Michael Musto, who says that it is not at all unreasonable to “unfriend” someone in real life for political reasons:

Everything in a friendship that might have seemed good suddenly goes sour when I learn that they advocate Trump and his hideousness, which involves attempting to diminish rights for women, LGBTQs, Muslims, immigrants, the arts, and the non-rich, not to mention all those treasonous-sounding doings with Russia. Am I supposed to understand that a gay friend is simply concerned about tax breaks and therefore can’t be bothered to devote any energy to little things like human rights? Bye, Felicia!

What evidence does he have to back up all of these evil sounding problems with the GOP?  Well, he can’t be bothered with facts or accuracy.  He’s trying to make a point.  And his point is?  That he can’t be expected to get along with people who are different than he is.

Similarly, if a real-life friend—someone who knows my plight, my accomplishments, and my oppressions—decides to trumpet in my face the alleged glories of the Republican party, I simply have to show them the hand and the door. Friendship over. I don’t care if they once helped me into an uber or maybe clicked on my links a couple of times. I don’t give a shit that they sent me birthday wishes on Facebook and also treated me to a half priced burrito for Christmas. They are as over to me as a boyfriend who cheated with someone I was cheating with. I have no use for them and would find it more than strained to attempt exchanging friendly banter with them, knowing full well that they’re basically self-loathing climbers who are furthering the mistreatment of mankind with their empty headed emissions. Am I cutting myself off from meaningful discourse? I don’t believe so; I feel I’m short circuiting the chance to hear odious apologias and offensive attempts at spin. Dropping Repubs (especially gay Repubs) from my guest list is a complete no brainer, which makes my life more aromatic while also sending out the message that self-loathing isn’t going to be tolerated around here, fellas. Pretty soon, I will put out a friendship alert that specifies, “Femmes and fats allowed, but no Trumpettes, please.” In the meantime, be warned.

This should be an eye opening article for the rest of America.  There’s nothing you can do, if you’re a conservative, to have real dialogue with some people.

It’s really, really a shame that the Democratic party has become such a bigoted club.
