For the first time in years I've engaged in debate. Or rather n just stating the obvious; commenting clearly and calmly on xenofobic propaganda (I got some distant family FB friends a while back and have just ignored them).

Since years I've deleted friends with hateful attitudes, no second chances.

But yesterday and today I just couldn't take it anymore. Normally I would ignore it - but if I defriend them, no one will say a word to them.... And this group just grows, and the hatred and dehumanization too.

So I wrote. For every hating post I wrote, facts and simple truths in a difficult time. it felt good. I didn't write in anger, just reminding them of facts and perspectives and the consequences of hateful propaganda...


But they just click 'share now' on that massproduced meme-****... I cant keep up.

So I'm back where I was; knowing I can't go inte details, I can't change these people's minds, seeing the war ahead; the antiddemocratic right ...

I am at a loss. Not responding is not an option, is it? But responding IS draining, even when shielded.

I could go for some very direct guidance here... That's what I'm thinking about.

I'd suggest you develop a thick skin. Let their hatred roll off you like water on a ducks back. Don't take it personally. You can't change them. They are at a low point in their spirituality. You are at a higher point. It's a fact. I have many friends that I don't agree with politically or demographically. I have learned to separate the parts I don't agree with with the personality of the person. When they begin spouting hatred, I let them know I will not discuss or debate our views and leave it at that. If they persist, I walk away. Not in anger, in refusal to play their games or rise to the occasion.

Fight the battles you can win but don't worry about those you lose. The war is to enjoy life. That is the only war that matters.

Grandfather, green card holder, arrested and being deported who has lived in America for 50 years. Had an argument 18 years ago that someone called in as a domestic.

And he's the lucky one. At least he isn't a child.

Being sent back to Mexico to die. No family, support, house or jobs there. It's effectively murder for being a good American for 50 years.

No good deed will go unpunished.
