If a hateful person makes you hate, they win. If a bully makes you bully, they win. If a vulgar person makes you vulgar, they win. Let us meet hate with love. Let us meet bullying with an embrace. Let us meet vulgarity with civility. This is how our country and world win.— Matthew Dowd (@matthewjdowd) June 25, 2018
How well I remember how the Allies beat the Nazis with hugs.
And Lincoln broke the Confederacy with kind words.
And the United Stated federal government finally ended Jim Crow by asking the Klan reeeeeeeal nice to stop terrorizing and murdering African American citizens for attempting to exercise their inalienable rights.
A reminder that these are not the musings of some maudlin old water-head drunk sitting in his own piss wildly misremembering the past to soften his present circumstance.
