I can understand the shock, but this was an election, not a tragedy. People that are still crying ‘racist’ and throwing a tantrum because the opposition is in power deserve the misery they are inflicting upon themselves. This is a representative democracy. Political parties exchange control, and it’s better than the alternative, even when some people are really disappointed in the outcome.

(Trump could not have won without an electorate that previously voted for Obama.)

And freedom of thought is only made divisive by bigots. Educated liberals calling conservatives ‘sexists and racists’ are the real bigots. Make an argument, not an attack. Fear mongering by making weak comparisons to history is also not an argument. Understanding how actual history was made and learning from it is a good start.

Or lose friends and family due to differences and make yourselves miserable in the process.
