People like to throw insults at one another if you vote for someone from the Republican Party. Commonly used insults are racist, sexist, xenophobic, homophobic, transphobic, and a lot of other “isms” and “ists” I’m sure I’m forgetting.
Likewise, those on the right also like to call others names simply for voting for a Democratic candidate.
Congressman Crenshaw from Texas went to Twitter to address comments made by a congressman from Georgia who, while speaking to the NAACP, called those who voted for and support President Trump a variety of names. Crenshaw simply makes the statement that that kind of conduct of a sitting congressman is below the office. To denigrate people simply because they voted for someone else is absurd.
Now, while Crenshaw’s video was specifically aimed at a member of Congress, it’s a message that can be easily applied to all of us, for everyone. I understand that during a heated argument things can be said, insults can be exchanged. I’m guilty of such conduct myself, but Crenshaw’s video is a great reminder that sticking to the topics and the issues will always serve us better than resorting to name calling and insults.
Check out Crenshaw’s video:
