I stand accused of hating Trump because I’m liberal. If being appalled at how he’s divided America is hate, if having to watch kids in cages, being ripped away from their parents with not a care about reuniting them is hate, if seeing he’s doing permanent damage to our democracy is hate, if seeing his effect on our children is hate, if listening to him tell American citizens to go home to foreign country's is hate, if watching him undo safeguards to our air and water is hate, if seeing him undo protections for minorities is hate, if listening to him side with our sworn enemy is hate, if hearing him say there’s good people on both sides, when one side is white supremacists is hate, if being scared to watch the news for fear of what he’ll do next hour is hate, if him undermining free speech is hate, if seeing him do nothing about suspected Russian hacking our elections is hate, if listening to his juvenile lashing out at, and calling them dirty names, at every person who disagrees with his policies is hate, and the list goes on and on, then I’m guilty as charged.

 

I’m just sick at heart that so many of my fellow citizens see none of these things. Yes, I disagree with his policies, but this goes far beyond politics, this is about his humanity.
