Sorry to hear you still feel attacked
I thought my first two posts were fairly respectful. In fact, I thought I did "bother to discuss it or be diplomatic", and only resorted to sarcastic exasperation when the general tone of the discussion had substantially dissolved.
I mean, how does one reply to statements like this?:
"'Political' art is a 3rd grader farting at the thanksgiving table. Rude. Some couch their hate speech as 'art' to protect it, there by degrading the perception of art altogether, perception becoming reality."
I do wholeheartedly agree with you on one thing though: "We shouldn't allow the loudest, most fanatical people of either party to be our voice through intimidation and derivation". Amen to that.
