I thought the level of hysteria from some Democrats reached a fever pitch during the Bush years. The truth is, they were just getting warmed up. Donald Trump hasn’t even been inaugurated yet, and he’s already causing Democrats to go berserk.
Have you noticed your friend count any lower on Facebook or other social media platforms? It’s possible friends who are Democrats are unfriending you or unfollowing you because of politics.
From The Hill:
Democratic voters are almost three times as likely to have “blocked, unfriended, or stopped following someone on social media” after Donald Trump’s victory, according to a study released Monday.
The nonpartisan Public Religion Research Institute (PRRI ) found 24 percent of Democrats distanced themselves from people on social media because of a political postings. Nine percent of both Republicans and independents reported doing the same to those in social media circles.
Additionally, 28 percent of liberals surveyed said they removed someone from their social media circle because of the content that person posted, compared with 8 percent of conservatives.
For moderates, 11 percent said they blocked, unfriended or unfollowed someone due to what that person posted online.
The poll results shouldn’t surprise anybody. Even before he was elected, people were threatening to move out of the country if he won. When he did win, people immediately began to protest, screaming “Not my President!” There were immediate calls for getting rid of the electoral college (with the media following suit) followed by Democrats attempting to intimidate electors into voting for somebody else other than Trump. The chairman of Hillary’s campaign, John Podesta, refuses to say the election was won fairly. Bill and Hillary Clinton are running around, whining about James Comey being responsible for her loss.
Is it any wonder this childishness worked its way into the social media realm?
Grow up and get over it already.
