Joe Biden drives a deeper wedge into divided nation
(Editorial ~ 04/18/18)
We talk often about the polarization in this country, but increasingly, it’s not polarization, it’s downright hatred.
It’s beyond dispute that we have reached a cultural and political crossroad where civil discourse and compromise have been abandoned.
The left’s outright hatred for conservative views is an ever-present item on the liberal menu, so much so that our vision for America is divided almost evenly on virtually any issue up for discussion.
We’ve passed the point of determining the blame for this divide. It honestly doesn’t matter. What truly matters is our growing lack of civility and the inflammatory rhetoric that turns disagreement into outright hostility.
