Original Title: Why so much Hatred from Republicans?
Why are so many Republicans so full of hatred, fear and anger?
I expect to be criticized for making such a statement, on the grounds that I have gotten angry at times and used harsh words and I admit that’s true. I’m only human. But to react in that manner occassionally is different from dwelling in hatred, anger, fear, divisiveness and prejudice continuously, day after day, every comment, every post, without provocation, apparently taking great pleasure in dwelling in such a world rather than instinctively reacting in that manner on occassion.
But there seem to be a disprapportionate number of Republicans who apparently revel in personal attacks, prejudice, character assasination and insults. I recall plenty of examples from back home. Of course it’s not true of all Republicans (generalizations are never true all the time) but it seems to be true in many cases.
One might think that such conduct was due to pre-election tensions and now that they’ve won the election, the insults might let up, but here on forumosa anyway they haven’t. For a number of republican posters, the vast majority of their comments on forumosa have always been and continue to be for the purpose of degrading others and apparently making themselves feel superior.
Is this true? Are there a disproportionate number of Republicans who seem to get-off on attacking and insulting others? Is the Republican party the party of hate? Why is that? This is intended as a serious question.
