No. I will not meet you halfway. You must change.

WN: I suppose the highlighted article could best be summed up: There is no compromise with evil. I’ve posted the opening paragraphs. The rest is also simply great!


Dear Trump supporter,

Let’s make a deal.  I will not accuse you of being evil as Satan or stupid as a bag of rocks if you show you are capable of learning from the experience of the past 4 years.  President-Elect Biden is going out of his way to embrace you and offer you a pathway to humanity.  I am not feeling so generous.  Here’s what I am willing to do:

You cannot support Nazis.  You cannot support a person who says Nazis are “very fine people.”  You cannot support a person who gasses citizens who are peacefully protesting.  You must change.  I will not meet you halfway, as in you can only support Nazis on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.  No.  You can’t do that.  There is no halfway.

Now, if you can pull yourself away from the Nazi crowd, I am willing to have an intelligent, respectful discussion about what immigration policies are in the best interests of our country and in the best interests of your family.

You cannot support people who objectify or molest women, or worse.  You cannot have an attitude that it is OK for anybody to grab a woman by the pussy without invitation.  You must change.  I will not meet you halfway by saying that it is OK to molest women on Tuesdays and Saturdays.  It is not OK.  You must change.

If you can find your way to condemn the abuse of women, then we can have an intelligent discussion about whatever underlying concerns might have led you to think molesting women is a good idea.
