When


Virtually on a daily basis, the person identified as "Leaf" throws bait to the conservative coy fish swimming and trapped in a small pool. Likewise on a daily basis, the coy fish take the bait and respond with ad hominem attacks worthy if their icthyological status. Then the right wing trapped swimmers take the hatred they so desperately rely upon for sustenance and attach it to all who possess the unmitigated gall to believe something they neither understand nor believe. In addition to the comedy this scenario creates, it also creates a sadness and an incredulity predicated on the fact these miscreants have a say in our government via the voting booth.

Furthermore, the principle of cogent thought and discussion is as foreign to them as the languages of other nations, and in some cases our own nation. Nonetheless, this activity continues. Leaf continues to throw out the bait and the unwashed continue to take it. When will they finally catch on?

Prejudice cannot be conquered with logic, logic didn't instill it and logic cannot eradicate it.

They won't. It's like shooting fish in a barrel.

They will never "catch on", because they worship ignorance.....they probably took that bait in childhood.....they never learned to think critically because that would threaten their brand of "Faith"........Look at YaYa's meme about the history of slavery or Bigblocks blog listing questions based on misconceptions......and there is nothing anyone can say that will illuminate their thinking........They don't want to learn to think......they belong to a social group that rewards it's members for ignorance..........

YES but I think it's even worse than that

They want everyone in the group to worship their God and their Trump and will insult and bully anyone who doesn't. Actually the insults and bullying started when anyone expressed support for President Obama, and it just got worse when Trump was elected.
