In the NFL, typically the team with the most yards of offense wins, but not always. In the 2016 Super Bowl, the Carolina Panthers had 315 yards on offense to 194 for Denver, but Denver won 24-10. They scored 14 more points and earned a victory. Our election is based on electoral votes, not popular votes, and by that law Donald J. Trump won. So get over it.
The election of 2016 was epic, historic and has divided this country like I’ve never seen before. I openly admit I voted for Donald Trump in a state (California) where my vote didn’t affect the outcome, but I’ve received a lot of criticism for it on social media from “so-called” friends.
I’ve been called a racist, a misogynist, homophobe, anti-women’s rights, blah, blah, blah. If you know me, I’m none of those things. Of course nobody calls me that in person, just on FaceBook which has forced me to unfriend & block these arrogant, condescending liberals who are guilty of what they are supposedly fighting for…..intolerance.
I stopped responding to other people’s posts because they just want to see whose views are aligned with theirs. So I tried a different approach by posting this simple paragraph that someone else wrote. Within minutes the hate started pouring in. At one point it got vulgar and out of hand. But it was the response of arguably the most well-known automotive journalist in America that truly shocked me. I’ve known Dan Neil for about 10 years. See him a couple of times a year at an auto show or media event, but never thought he was this intolerant. Here was his response to my post.
