Of course they will deny it, because they know their Master would be displeased if it got out into the open that totalitarianism is their Heaven on Earth, brought on by Big Brother alone. Total people control must take place much like the boiling water overtakes the fabled stupid frog in the pan.

I did. That doesn't take away from your assessment. And it's not even mostly your fault. Big ad campaigns are like that. Ever wondered why a lot of beer brands were red/white and blue? or smoking commercials used to depict happy people playing volleyball in the sun?
They learned and went for bigger money in political persuasion. Actually social change. And it worked. Still is.

Despite the person posting being vehemently against everything her friend believed in. Her friend was still willing to be her friend without her having to change one iota. It was the poster who was issuing an ultimatum.

So what? If you treated them in any way that you conduct yourself on this forum, they probably got tired of your ridiculous arguments and inane positions based not on policy but on your hatred for those that don't agree with you.

**** off. I'm taking a break. When pathetic drooling garbage has the ****ing nerve to make statements such as this, it makes me believe there is no hope for those who have drunk the swill and paint the rest of humanity as effected as they are with **** that is fed to them without apply a ****ing braincell before they post things.

After the election I gave my left-leaning friends and family time (about 8 months) to get their crap together. I listened to their lamentations, I read their sorrowful posts on FB, I bit my tongue, trying to be patient, waiting for them to regain composure. That didn't and still hasn't happened; they have only become worse.

The unhinged emotionalism has been replaced with more directed real anger and hostility. The MAGA gives them something to focus on, to project all their emotion on, it is a catalyst for THEIR hate. It is also an escape because if they can direct their anger at a piece of clothing and eliminate the person wearing it as someone to be interacted with intellectually, they never need to actually debate policy.

People I thought I knew and who I considered intelligent and even-keeled / level headed have surprised me; I have been insulted and denigrated and my adult children have been told some pretty horrendous things from their liberal cousins.

All this confirms a long-held belief of mine . . . The primary difference between conservatives and liberals is that conservatives believe a liberal can be reasoned with, that a well-formed, logical argument can bring them to understand their errors. Liberals just think conservatives should be bound and gagged and the less they are seen or heard from, the better.

Sadly, some liberals, especially of the type that's triggered by the MAGA hat, would be cheering as conservatives are put on cattle cars, never to be seen again . . .

Pretty much the last couple years have proven to me that some brands of liberalism have become a horribly debilitating mental disorder with bald, unrepentant hypocrisy being the most outward symptom.

I never get too political on Facebook with what I share on my timeline.
I can count the political things I've posted or shared on there.
That's not why I'm on there.
I've had a few leftist friends comment on a few things when they don't bother commenting on anything else, in those cases I delete the whole damn thing.

If you are on a social media platform, that is most likely a good practice. Personally, I avoid social media as I have seen a good number of friendships and close family relationships destroyed by people overreacting to something said on social media.

There are 2 different couples that we used to get together with for dinner, parties and even vacation. However, a innocent facebook post between 2 of them ruined their friendship. We are still friends with both couples, but we have to see them independently of each other. It is sad that we all can't get along anymore.
