My friend is conservative. He comes from old blue collar, hard working, bible believing, stock. He comes from working class people who worked damn hard, hard enough that he was able to go to college. He appreciates hard work, commitment and honesty. Those are the best traits of old school working class people. These are the people that Hillary called deplorables and unredeemable.
People like my friend ridicule college students that need safe spaces and try and avoid real free speech by banning speakers who disagree with them. There is a growing wedge in this country and everybody, including people who believe they are empathetic and loving liberals are part of the problem. I want to start by talking a little Psychology 101. I get to do that because I qualified for a Bachelor's in Psychology and Sociology, instead I took my official degree in Political Science. Still I want to talk about Psychology.
In 1943 Abraham Maslow published a paper in which he outlined what he believed to be human's hierarchy of needs. A list of priorities for people depending on their environment.
It disgusts me to watch people like Hillary and Streep insulting people who voted for Trump because they believe his followers are sexist, xenophobic, racist and homophobic when these same people voted Obama in for two terms, THE SAME PEOPLE. While I personally am a socialist, I find it harder to talk to liberals on the coast than to conservatives. Both are difficult for me; but, liberals tend to be more self satisfied and assured that people who disagree with them are evil.
