As political discourse in America continues to devolve into total detestation, an increasing number of progressives are electing to cut off their conservative friends and family.
I know this to be true not only from anecdotes and statistics, but from personal experience as well.
Since joining The Western Journal a little over a year ago, I’ve been educated on the true meaning of words like “friend” and “family.”
After only a few months of working as a conservative journalist, one of my lifelong friends called me up to let me know he was disowning me. He further explained that he could no longer, in good conscience, associate himself with someone who promotes the particular conservative values that I do.
As time went on, a few other now-former friends followed suit, albeit absent the over-the-top theatrics.
