Trump is not dividing us. YOU are dividing us.

Those who hate Trump declare that he is dividing us.  I will say that Trump is not the one dividing us.  What might me more accurate is that the media is dividing us.  Hollywood is dividing us.  Sports are dividing us.  Politicians are dividing us.  But all of this is wrong.

YOU are the one who is dividing us.

When you decide to break off friendships base on whether or not someone supports Trump, you are dividing us.

If you have a friend who has been there for you for the last ten years, and you find out that he supported Trump or hates Trump, and you dump that friend… what does that say, exactly?

You will say “Well, his supporting of Trump is proof that he is a racist and a sexist and anti-immigrant and pro-Nazi…”  HOLY SHIT!!!!  He was that horrible a human being and managed to hide it from you for ten whole years?  Tricking you by helping you move and giving you rides to the airport and shit like that?  Gotta watch them Nazis.  They are tricky as hell.

Or might it be that your friend is perfectly fine?  That outside forces have told you that this is what you should believe because believing such things allows you to shut your mind to them, to avoid conversations.  After all, what can you learn from a Nazi?  You can’t convince a Nazi.  So why talk to them?

As such, you divide us.  Where there is no conversation, there can be no growth.  There can be no reconciliation.  The worst things is all that’s left when people stop talking is violence.

This is why it’s important NOT to unfriend people.  Why you shouldn’t divorce your husband regardless of what the View tells you.  Talk to the person with an open mind.  Maybe you will learn something, even if is just that they have reasons for their beliefs and they are not monsters.  Hell, maybe you will change their mind.

Long Live the Constitution!
