Hate is fuelling politics in America and Britain, as arguments over racial justice, transgender rights and other issues become more polarised. These tribal "culture wars” spell bad news for democracy.

I don’t think this can be discussed without discussing the role of social media influencers and their foreign backers. This is what subversion looks like.
That'swhat you get when you allow Russia, China, and their allies access to our internet.
All due to lack of journalism.
The media lies about Donald Trump Constantly. (Russian collusion narrative, proven false time and time again)
The media and DOJ also covers for Democrats and Joe Biden. (Hunter Biden Laptop)
That Nicca ,Down Low or DL Hughely is Obama's side piece 🥧🥧🥧
Allegedly !! So I've been told
Civil war two coming soon
Since when did a fellow of the Ayn Rand Institute become a recognized and citable scholar of social studies, for all scholars of said institute do not believe that there is a society. As one of Ayn Rand's most prominent students, Margaret Thatcher, put it once: "[...] and so they are casting their problems on society and who is society? There is no such thing! There are individual men and women and there are families and no government can do anything except through people and people look to themselves first."
It was never as bad as it has been since 2016 but i think all of the 21st century was pretty toxic in regard to these wars. I'm old enough to remember the liberals who opposed the Iraq War being labeled as terrorist supporters who hated America. Bush's 2004 campaign was also reviled by many on the left, it was popular to say you'd leave the country if Bush won (a la Trump/Clinton campaign in 2016) because he'd ruin the country.
Democrats helped the republicans with poorly executed planning, and running on abortions as it main point!
IT'S the white overweight middle age uneducated people that are bringing down this country.
we have been divided from the the day we born, but now we got to the point that are directed with political force to benefits their interest, we are only a collateral damage to this identity politics fight which make politician happy and rich, and media is fueling this divide far past is really is
You need to vote for the targets of MSM because Biden had and has MSM support and he can not make a sentence. MSM just focus on stirring race hate so the elite can steal the rest of the money while you are suckered in to ignoring what the elite are doing to your pockets country, laws, freedoms.
Biased media coverage
On the major agendas and issues today, the lefts take them as basic human right, whereas the rights take as a threaten undermining the very core values. There seems to be no room for a common denominator because they are not just mere agendas or policies but they are the manifestation of their identity. Both sides take them extremely personally. Both sides equally think the other side is destroying communities and values. The politics and societies will only go down the spiral. So worrisome.
funny how the stock of white dudes go down, the number of trans people go up. hahaha.
It's disgusting how the world is basically granting immunity to these crazy people, mean while us the normal one is very much not protected. Though I can see why many politician use them as vehicle to get more vote since it is in a way win win solution, the politician have the votes and the weird ones gets immunity from anything even opinions that are not align with them. disgusting how they still call themselves a democratic country you can't outweigh one just because they are ''special''
Thank you, I’ve been thinking about this. Politics seem to have become almost a source of entertainment how I see it.
Pushback by the Left should not be labeled "hatred." Defending oneself and others against attack is self love and love of others.
