Why do you think there's so much hate between the left and the right?

A main part is that many people have this mentality that if you disagree with them then your evil.

Both sides love America. Both sides see America declining. Both sides blame the other for America's decline. Ironically, it is both sides love for their country that feeds their hatred of each other.

That’s what the people in power want. Divide us and make us afraid of each other. Easier for media to make advertising $. Easier for politicians to control us. Tell them all to pound sand.

It’s because conservatives make decisions based on “logic” while liberals make decisions based on “emotion”.

Because politics is blurry and there’s never one right answer, except everyone holds fast to the idea that their version of values and ideas is the true and only.

Because in order to stay relevant, the two parties have to scare the population into believing that the other side is evil, scary, and will destroy our country.

And hey, it's working.

Not all the left, but the party has been openly calling for impeachment, dnc chair debate had a candidate saying it's time to impeach Trump a week into his presidency. Look at all the polls on this app alone. It's not a stupid assumption, it's true

I think that's a good point. It's hard to keep an open view about the other side of you are constantly only hearing one side of the story.

Obama spent 8 years dividing the country by race, sex, religion, politics, wealth, etc. this is what they wanted.

Both sides kinda hype eachother up to hate the other side. Just yesterday I was watching the, "info wars 1 year maga anniversary" thing, forgetting the fact that it was propaganda, it was so incredibly divisive. I'm sure the left has many of those as well. People need to get out and meet people with different views and not just assume they hate them. I can't tell you how many times I've has decent conversations with someone who's views were COMPLETELY different from mine by simply starting the conversation making it clear we're both equal. like saying, "I don't agree at all, but I respect your views", and stuff like that.

It’s because they refuse to meet in the middle and try to find some common ground. Both sides are incredibly beholden to their ideology and refuse to budge.

The young left is raised as getting everything they want, lest they cry, stomp, or sue.
They never ask where things come from.
They are always pissed if at America as of there's done massive conspiracy designed to keep them from living a caviar lifestyle for no work, like an episode of Kardashians.
Whatever they get or happens, they will never be satisfied or happy.
That indicates something about mindset and psychology.

And it's recent. The leftie dem of today is not JFKennedy's voters. I blame LBJ (implementing many programs based on Marxist thought) and the Clintons (they figured out best how to use and profit from the system and make it grow).

Completely opposite world views. Democrats want a benevolent government deciding on what is good and bad and taking care of everyone that is funded by taxes on the rich. Republicans want a less intrusive government. So, Democrats think that Republicans are evil because who wouldn’t want a government run utopia with free stuff and no poor people? And Republicans think Democrats are stupid because they think government is corrupt and inefficient.

Sorry, not buying it. If the people you know actually think that the government will save them, they are either very young or very stupid: The functional equivalent of those on the right who have “opinions” but zero knowledge of any facts on which to base those “opinions”.
Bloody willfully ignorant fools the lot of them.

Because we constantly ascribe bad motives to each other. Republicans say that all Democrats are lazy hippies who pander to minorities for votes and hate America and freedom. Democrats say that Republicans are racist sexist bigoted homophobes clinging to their guns and religion and are a bunch of hicks who have no heart.

Your right with that one. The radio and some tv news is vicious, and full of hate. It seemed to be very toxic when Obama was elected. The racist people came out of the woodwork. And it seemed that Obama couldn’t do anything right by the republicans. I have close friends and family members on both side, and when the subject of politics comes up. I make sure that we talk respectfully to one another, and if they can’t then the conversation is over.
Also other countries have been stirring the pot and were all affected by their propaganda.
Both parties want to do whats best for America. And need to get back working together. Together we rise, and divided we will fall.
