Never mind the honest, decent, hardworking people who love their country and voted their conscious and just made a decision with which you simply disagree. Just demonize the whole lot of them and be done with it. Some people just like to paint the issues in stark blacks and whites. It makes things so much simpler in deciding who to dehumanize and hate. I'm sure there are lots of decent, hardworking people who love their country who voted for brexit, but they did so after being inundated with a ton of xenophobic rhetoric. People did this out of fear, and they seem to have been clearly misinformed about what a brexit vote would actually mean. Calls for the murder or deportation of the opposition, and hate crimes aimed at immigrants do not help make the case that brexit was about democracy. Indeed, the EU itself was democratic, so...where does this argument come from that they were restoring democracy? 1 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
