    Re: Democrats are More Divisive

    It's only an unnecessary circus if you don't care whether a SCOTUS candidate committed sexual assault as a teenager and then lied about it. I personally think it's a pretty big deal.

    Re: It isn't Racist to...

    I didn't say the tweet didn't make logical sense.

    But even if I did say that, a tweet that doesn't make sense can still be racist.



    Who says I didn't consider those things?

    I guess, but you haven't shown that Dems are more divisive than Republicans.

    Using the gay marriage example, the Democratic party just followed the will of the people and the divisiveness is due...

    Because it's not a commonly-used method used to attack white people based on their ethnicity. Similar to how it's racist to call a black person a n-word but not racist to call a white person that.

    That's not what the OP forwards. It says the Dems seek to make changes and that creates (increases) division.

    I disagree with this assessment.

    I agree that change can lead to division but one just as easily put the blame on those who resist change as those who promote change.

    The definition of coerce is to "persuade (an unwilling person) to do something by using force or threats."

    Of course it depends on what "force" is being referred to. One can be forced in such a way that they don't have a choice (like making them a puppet).
