Going to start with that I am just expressing thoughts and conjecture from my own point of view.
To me it seems clear to me American society is making enemies out of each other. An absolute divide.
When I saw this tweet
shows me how easy for one abandon their family. If it is that easy turn on their family, what would happen to these individual when they have no connection at all. As if the they will receive worse for when those they put in power turn on them.
Which got me to look at reddit front page that I haven’t looked at in ages and looked through comments of this post
which the twit and some of the comments continue to paint people as enemies and take this story for example. painting an enemy and expressing the desire of violence.
My husband is kind of introverted. He’s quiet and calm, and never swears in front of the kids, even though they’re in their 30’s. Our youngest daughter has been visiting for the last couple of weeks. When they showed that video, my husband just exploded. He yelled “Bash that fucker’s head in with your baton! Fuck these people, they deserve to get killed! Whack that ugly hillbilly right fucking now!” And he went on for a few minutes. My daughter and I looked at each other with our jaws on the floor, because it was so completely out of character for him.
At this point I think title should have been “We are Enemies”. That is all I see happening. Enemies being made or created. Reddit really likes idea of violence on their enemies, even if the punishment isn’t on par with the “crime”.
Along my surfing out of boredom and curiosity I found this video
Now with the video posted about the guy on the no-fly list thus looking like we are pushing people into corners. Is there going to be a snapping point? “We are enemies” and hope we don’t face each other on the battlefield.
There is more I’d like to put other there but I think I posted enough to express my view point. Looking forward to other points.
