As liberals and Democrats we showed here the RESPECT due to a fallen hero, Captain (Senator) McCain

While over at fox news the story is they had to disable comments sections about any story about Captain (Senator) McCain because the vast vast majority of the comments were hatred towards this fallen hero.

I know there are some here who hated him and will say bad things, but thankfully THEY are in the MINORITY here while those comments are the MAJORITY in deplorable land.

I am NOT calling out DU members who criticize McCain, I have no interest in that argument or whatever, I am MERELY pointing out we are ONCE again as a group on the right side of history and rumpers are not.

IDK

I do know that I could very easily have been very very negative about McCain if I wanted to be and would have had plenty to talk about if I chose to do that, but I would have had to ignore so much of what made him a good man, and WE are better than that.
