Couldn't disagree more. I find the left far more brittle. You folks so often confuse policy with objective. Oppose extension of the welfare state? You hate the poor. Oppose affirmative action or open borders? You're a racist. Oppose confiscatory tax programs? You're a stooge for the rich. As night follows day, oppose progressive orthodoxy and you're in for some ad hominem.
we're stupid - you know better - because you don't like it when you're accurately labeled
but we're stupid and 'confused'
if I'm brittle, I find that preferable to being racist, homophobic, misogynistic, Islamaphobic, vicious, mean-spirited, petty, vicious, hateful and self-involved
