Going out of way to make others look bad makes yourself look even worse.
Most here who know me know thatI do not associate myself with anyone political party of any kind. That being the case often when seeing these post I see them as an out sider looking in and trust me it looks pretty bad.
Everything is always a compettion and it is especially noticible by 2 inparticular. If something is posted by a Republican then a Deocrate most often a liberal must compete with a post.
I also see many times the last being something just posted this week where liberals will go out of their way to dig up something someone may have said out of obvious sarcasm 20 years ago which tells me they are just searching for things, anything negative and it actually makes them look allot worse then who they are tying to make a point that the other is so bad.
In all fairness I see it on both sides but I see the very liberal members doing it the most and as mentioned 2 in particular. Also as mentioned myself not being associated with any political party I have no need to defend one over the other so I just call it like I see it, a big competition in who can out do the other at making the other look bad and it makes those who go out of their way to try so hard to sling mud on the other look even worse especially when it is obviously in competition and I see it more from the liberals
Also while I am at it I may as well go head and say I see the same thing aimed at Christianity. They and again the same 2 in-particular more so than others go so far out of the way looking for anything they can to discredit Christians. They will put so much effort into it that they will quote something one nut case might have said or done and try to use it to make it appear as if that is proof that all Christians are the same just because that one somebody happened to be a Christian. The end result is they make their self look worse by having to put so much effort into trying to make others look so bad
I have actually had to come to the conclusion that age must play a part. due to the style and manner it is done on a constant basis it appears to be very childish and immature like and does not appear to be the style or way someone of a mature age level would do or present their side of things and their views. Therefor in addition to making their self look bad always trying to put so much effort in to making others look bad the immature level it is done also leads me to feel like there is little to no knowledge behind it making it look every bit as ignorant as it does looking bad to begin with.
