of my political views? (from FB)

"The very truthful and serious answer - is that it was not for political views but for your obvious support or, if not actual support, your willingness to overlook Trump's racism, anti-semitism, bigotry, assaulting of women, and disdain for our government and political process.

In my view, anyone who can support - in any way - a racist is a person for whom racism is not a problem. So, no. Political views are one thing. Overt racism - which Trump has never denied and has displayed for all to see - is something I cannot overlook. Our nation is going to suffer terribly if this "person" is allowed to take office. And those who voted for him - the poor especially - are going to suffer the most. I have really liked you very much - but I cannot and will not overlook support for a racist. I cannot and will not overlook any kind of "smoothing over" of the racist as in "give him a chance." To stand up for your values takes courage. To fall into lock-step takes none."


I'm surprised that people this closed-minded have any friends to begin with.
