Some of you are upset because your Facebook friends have unfriended you because of your political posts during the election. "They just can't handle the TRUTH," you sputter. Maybe they are thin-skinned or willfully blind to the truth of your position. May I just offer one other possibility?
Maybe when you post that people who believe *political position* are morons or idiots or brain-dead or traitors or colluding with Satan, your friend who believes *political position* realizes that you are talking about him. Maybe he realizes that you're too nice or too clueless to call him names to his face but after a few of your posts, he sees what you really think of him. Maybe he unfriends you because his feelings are hurt or maybe he realizes that you don't see him as a true American or as someone with the right to his opinions or someone with whom you can agree to disagree. Maybe he realized you aren't really a friend.
