From SFGATE, Ppretty much nails it.

On social media I’ve blocked/ghosted literally thousands of “friends” since the last two elections.

My intolerance is growing.

“…But hear this now, hardcore Sanders zealots: it’s become jarringly evident that many of you are losing perspective, becoming unhinged, veering way too close, in your savage anti-Hillary screeds, pro grumpy-old-populist obsessiveness and manic refusal to acknowledge historical context, toward raging fundamentalism.
You know, like an NRA fanatic. Like a Trump rage-aholic. A Mormon homophobe. A Planned Parenthood firebomber. Beware….”

2. Identical methods used by the Palin obsessed Teaparty to break the GOP

I remember the hate speak, the blacklisting of reasonable Repub candidates by the Teaparty whose base was whipped into that same manic frenzy by denouncing Obama & screeching GOD GAYS &GUNZ!!
And look where our US legislature sits today because the Teaparty banked on that mob mentality and said the few key words they all wanted to hear.
The hate rhetoric was what broke the once reasonable GOP.
Buyer Beware

3. Read the comments after the article

They still don't get it. Their rage has blinded them. They are, in a word, fools.

6. Thanks! I expected it



We have a group of keyboard warriors who are hiding in the shadows looking for anything here to alert on. They are children.

It would be nice if the hosts could get a list of the alerters for the Hillary Group and crosstab them with blocked posters. I bet the correlation is strong.
