"Few people actually run towards gunfire. Most search for cover. Some can’t function. Fight or flight. Adrenaline floods your body. Time doesn’t exist. Your heart beats outside of your chest.

This discourages conservatives from engaging with liberals at all and reinforces echo chamber conversations. The right and conservatives continue to bash liberals for being hypocrites.
The Dangers of Identity Politics & SJWs - for the left and the right
Let’s just talk about why identity politics are a problem. They’re a problem because they focus on one part of someone’s identity and say this part (race, sexual orientation, gender identity, etc) is the only problem or contributing factor to a situation.

We need to have an explicit right to free speech that is protected by clear language in the highest law of the land. In the U.S. we have the first amendment to the Constitution to articulate and protect the right of free speech. It is not conditional.
What American Liberals (and everyone else too) can learn from the Kathy Griffin…
We are spectators shouting from our couches at TV screens. The game is not important anymore, it's only the winning that counts. How do you convince the opposing fans that a fair play quality game will be a better spectacle for ALL?
