Member of Political Party Makes Statement That Angers Members of Opposing Political Party
Any date - A member of a political party made a public statement in support of a controversial bill this afternoon, and a member of the opposing political party became absolutely furious.
“I can’t believe that person would go on that national news network and make a statement like that,” said the opposing political party member. “The bill that person is supporting is an absolute disgrace, and I know every single American agrees with me when I say this bill needs to be torn up.”
The original political party member retaliated by saying that their opponent did not know what they were talking about and that their comments were just a product of the biased media network that they had recently appeared on. “I happen to know for a fact that everybody in America agrees with me when I say that this bill is what is best for our country, and if you disagree on any level with what I’m saying then you are a terrible person and I will set your entire family on fire if necessary in order to achieve my own political goals.”
The opposing party member did not take kindly to the original party member’s comments, and decided to go on social media to send inspirational messages that would rile up the members of their own party and convince them that the original party member was horrible, as were all of the other members of the original political party, and if given the opportunity the original political party would destroy the country.
Ordinary citizens then proceeded to watch the exchange between the two political party members and immediately chose sides that reflected their already established political beliefs. They then went on the internet and hurled poorly formed insults and slurs at ordinary members of the opposing political party, none of which convinced anybody to change their opinion on the matter at hand, and actually managed to further entrench each side’s respective beliefs.
One ordinary person who was not a member of either party suggested that each party attempt to compromise and find some middle ground on the issue at hand. Everybody ignored that person.
By the time it was all done, the original cause of the argument was no longer being discussed, the insults were becoming increasingly poor in quality, and everyone hated each other.
The two politicians decided that working in Congress was impossible on such a beautiful day, and therefore decided to take the rest of the day off and play a round of golf with each other.
