The GOP creates conditiions through their policies and rhetoric that fosters crime

They appear to be very clever going about it, since most of the violent crime surges have been in big blue cities.

I can understand the use of “snowflake”
In a lot of contexts. But applying it to people outraged by rising crime— which the WH does not deny— is like, really special.
Now that's just crying. Crime has always been a problem and it is by no means a solely republican trait to be concerned.

But that doesn't make the 'summer of hate' a thing.

Nope, it's still justifiable outrage, and you haven't answered this criticism:

Criticism? That was just a cheap dig. What on earth would be an appropriate, or even necessary response?

Your use of the term "snowflake" is abominable considering all the people who have died at the hands of criminals released by low or cashless bail. Tell the injured and dead at Waukesha that they're just snowflakes.

The appeal to emotion fallacy? Another cheap dig.


I did not call any of those people snowflakes

It seems more like you simply wish to shift the blame.
everyone has a part in solving the crime issue. It has been a problem since 10,000 B.C.

Yep, but those with local political power are in the best position to do so. Your attempt to blame those not in that position was telling.

You tried to float the idea that it was some conservative delusion that the Summer of 2020, in which people were injured and killed and property damage has been estimated at a billion dollars or more, could be fairly called a Summer of Hate. The use of the term snowflake connotes over-sensitivity. So logically you must not think all the chaos of 2020 was anything serious, and anyone who complained about the violence was being a conservative snowflake. Nothing emotional about the argument, just simple condemnation of your untenable position.

Thank you understand things got messy, for a number of reasons. But the name “summer of hate” has not caught on and nobody outside the bubble has heard of it. People bring up these made up terms and expect the rest of us to follow.

Convince them that convicted violent felons and those found to be dangerous and mentally ill should be allowed to roam freely among us. ;)
