To this, here is what I got last night from a fellow Medium writer who has now been blocked off the platform:

Julia, like most progressives, you're incapable of comprehending why so many of us patriotic American constitutionalists voted for an arrogant, loudmouthed bully. So you prevaricate.

The reason was that we couldn't vote for a corrupt, socialist, murdering TRAITOR. In addition, Clinton openly admitted in debate that she didn't believe in a Constitution as written. She admited she didn't believe in a free market capitalist economy, not that we've had one for some time.

Also, like most dishonest benighted hate-filled progressives you spew the Leftist propaganda that Trump is racist, xenophobic, and misogynist. Yet you and your fellow seditionists are unable to prove your slander, even in an impeachment hearing. So you continue spewing conspiracies that the Democrats have engaged in.

And like all too many progressive women,

your description of yourself fits you and the mentally deranged, dishonest, puerile, aliterate, and prevaricating progressives.

Mark, this is the work we have ahead of us. I wore a uniform so that this man could feel safe attacking me. I wouldn't know a progressive platform if someone hit me with one of its planks. I lean conservative on fiscal issues, mildly liberal on many, very lib on some, and libertarian on still others, because as with all of life, it depends. This is the kind of deep, vicious division we face as a nation. I have room in my heart for this guy to differ. My take? \He sounds like he'd knife me in the street and laugh while I bled to death. All because of what he has decided that I believe, none of which is based in any kind of truth or understanding. When I read this last night I was floored.

Isn't it such a powerful truth that what we accuse others of, we are? This vitriol is extremely revealing. This is what white nationalism has got us...and interestingly, the guy is of Hispanic descent. Go figure. Hate doesn't know boundaries. It lands on fertile ground everywhere. I am sorry for him that he lives with such evil inside.
