How should we deal with people who are purposely trying to be distracting and destructive to our passion and democratic energy? I think I just got diverted and engrossed in a recess type scuffle!
This guy was purposely trying to infuriate anyone who believes in democracy and humanity, and i tried to be engage him in a discussion, but he would not let go of his condescending tone or juvenile retorts. seriously, this is a political discourse, so please, let's refrain from personal attacks. i am proud of how i reasoned with this person, but I feel like i lost an hour of my life and wasted energy that could have been better utilized for this movement.
so yeah, i am just posting this because I hope we can all take something out of this. i sure did. i hope my experience helps others to save their energy and not get diverted by purposeful diversionary tactics of some of these opposers.
