    In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes and American and assimilates himself unto us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for its an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American... There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room but for one flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language... and we have room for but one loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.

    Rightwingers will probably be guilty of it _too_. ARE guilty of it _too_. For instance, remember all those people out there this fall celebrating being "nasty women" because of Trump's insulting language.

    But it really is sad -- and schadenfreude-inducing -- that Democrats, who really should know better -- so many times were difficult to distinguish from Trump in how they insulted the opposition. They did know better. They preached better. They complained about others doing it. And then they did it.

    Hubris.
    I wish Americans had the same high standards and expectations of Republicans as they do for Democrats.

    I waited for 8 years for Barack Obama to ruin my life. All I got was a good job, cheaper gas, health insurance, and marriage equality.
