Scapegoating those who disagree with you

I am sick of mainstream liberals painting conservatives as insane religious nuts. This country was founded on Christian values and morals. On the other hand, I am disappointed that people on my side are quick in painting the other side as stupid, commies, etc.

This is why half of the population doesn't vote. Because of the constant name-calling on both sides. This isn't a sport. This isn't us against them. Republicans and Democrats need to come to a consensus and stop acting like 4 year olds.

The danger of scapegoating a whole group of people is that you see them as less than human. Nazi's blamed everything on the Jews. Liberals blame everything on Conservatives, and Conservatives blame everything on liberals.

When is this going to end?

This will help everyone out, check it.
It is time we acknowledged a basic feature of human discourse: when considering the truth of a proposition, one is either engaged in an honest appraisal of the evidence and logical arguments, or one is not. Religion is the one area of our lives where people imagine that some other standard of intellectual integrity applies.
