These are the sorts of comments that generate massive levels of exactly the sorts of "hate" he says he abhors.

That person is a complete fool.

Lots of seemingly intelligent people saying really dumb things these days--or maybe just revealing what huge pieces of shit they really are.

The one positive of social media is it shows us which people are total idiots who don't think before posting. But the bigger downside is the masses seem to gobble up whatever inflammatory nonsense they post instead of thinking about how the person really is a wacko.

Yeah, but I can't help but think that many people are herd animals who do whatever the crowd is doing. They aren't sharp enough to think for themselves and end up doing stupid things.

At least when there was only television and newspapers, one had to be able to read and process information rather than deciding things based on sound bytes.
