15. What's divisive is saying that there's "no difference" between Democrats and the GOP...

 

... it's also divisive to say that the Democratic party is "an absolute failure" and that the Democrats are "corrupt" and "ideologically bankrupt".

Want to talk about being divisive? How about when someone says that Democrats "don't care about climate change" or that the Democrats are the "party of the elite" and the "party of the one percent"... is that divisive?

It certainly causes division when anyone claims that the Democrats "focus too much" on diversity and it creates distrust when anyone claims that people "aren't racists" just because they refuse to vote for someone because of their skin color. It harmful and divisive for anyone to falsely claim that the Democrats who "are very big into diversity" aren't "particularly sympathetic" to the working class.

That type of hate-speech serves no good purpose. Showing such open contempt and hostility for the Democratic party is a GIFT to the GOP. It does nothing but create hostility, distrust, resentment and division. It serve no good purpose at all.

All I'm trying to say is, when anyone repeatedly smears the Democratic party with that type of negativity it generates apathy. When you have apathy, that discourages voter turnout. When you have low voter turnout that gives Republicans a chance to steal the elections.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
