Dude. I have sympathy. There are plenty more people out there in misery and despair who dont cross our borders illegally. The US cannot fix the worlds problems. If anything, allowing unfettered ingress will not solve the problem, similar to the homeless in SF and LA. You cant give a man a fish, you need to teach it.
Genuine question from someone not in the US; are there people who think he's a good president ? I thought it was more a statement of "would would rather have a mad clown than a liberal, and here is proof?" thing.
I agree though. Is super hard to be tolerant of every idea. When Google US was 100% Democrat, they got on with each other far better than after they changed their interview process to not do "culture fit", and went 60 republican/40% democrat. It ended up causing the culture war that's still playing out.
I'll.nebrr forget having a conversation with a woman about capacity planning for a big service and she said "No point worrying about two years out, we will have been raptured by then".
After recovering from the shock, all I could do was gently to ask we pretend the Rapture wasn't immanent, and keep going. My own culture was one where religion was a hobby that gave you something tondonon weekends, or something you mocked, so shutting myself down, to not hurt people who were genuine, was hard.
