Salon Writer Recommends Shunning Friends and Family Who Support Trump
Here's a shocker. Leftists aren't all too crazy about riders of the Trump train. Progressive types are known for denying MAGA people real estate transactions. Banning them from their concerts. Attempting to crater their skulls with 2x4s.
Then there's this. A writer over at salon is recommending you shun all of your Trump-loving friends and family until they repent. Yeah, for reals:
If you have friends or relatives who support Donald Trump you should confront them. Explain to them that they are complicit with Trump's cruelty and sadism. Then communicate that you will no longer speak with them, nor will you offer them emotional, financial or other types of support until they denounce Donald Trump and what he represents — and make amends through speech and action.This will not be easy. Doing what is right rarely is. But it is necessary.
Some will protest, saying that you can't know what is in a person's heart based on who they vote for. This is untrue. Voting and other types of political behavior are in many ways actions which are based more on emotion than they are reason. As such, a vote for Trump and continued support for him is a clear signal to a person's deep and sincerely held values and beliefs.
Well, leftism is starting to sound a lot less like a political philosophy and more like a shady cult.
Yes, leftists must shun the "non-believers." At least until they turn away from their devilish ways and follow the true path. Until they trade their MAGA hats for Che Guevara t-shirts. Replace their stars-and-stripes bumper sticker with a "Coexist" one. Increase their soy intake tenfold.
This is the emerging world of the left, where merely having a different opinion is grounds for the cold shoulder. Even if the opinion-haver is a blood relative. Pathetic.
