In what was one of the most controversial Presidential elections in cognisant memory, their was also a massive epidemic of violence and animosity. These abominations were not people hating other people, based on their actions, or character, it was merely on what the other person’s views and ideologies are…
The two parties, Republicans and Democrats, were conflicted not just by repairing our country, but also criticising, and sometimes even assaulting the opposing party.
There were statistics recorded in 2016, it accounted that 24% of republicans, and 17% of Democrats think it is occasionally acceptable to send threatening messages to public officials, not only that, but 15% of Republicans and 20% of Democrats agree the country would be better if multiple partisans in the public today died.
These statistics are sureal and happen everyday, and a big part of the common structures of modern political groups.
While this occurred, reporter Andy Ngo had gotten harassed by multiple Antifa members, getting shoved around by Antifa members repeatedly, Ngo had also been verbally attacked, getting called a “Nazi”.
This is sad to hear, and, unacceptable because of how far we’ve grown as a nation to not judging people based on their beliefs, views, or color of our skin, and judging them on their character and actions.
Now, I am not saying the left are the only aggressors, how about the Neo-Nazis or even the KKK?
Although Antifa was fighting at this rally to, the main agressors were Neo-Nazis, and KKK members. This act ,was in my eyes, unbelievable as was another unite the right rally where Members of Antifa were the agressors now.
Antifa members were “launching eggs, fireworks and water bottles at police officers and Secret Service members, beating people in the street, and threatening members of the media during the uber-left rally,” written at Foxnews.com.
These horrifying events have been terrible and should be condemned by every person in the USA. The only thing these vicious acts showed, is that our country needs to come together, not as Men, Woman, Liberal, Conservative, Black or White. But as a whole American people.
I call for Americans to respect other people no matter the color of their skin, gender, belief or view. This country would be a lot better and would thrive off respecting other peoples opinons, and agreeing to disagree while doing so.
