“Don’t give hate a platform!” This audacious remark is only one of the taglines of countless petitions launched at Twitter and Facebook in an attempt to deplatform or ban Donald Trump from their social media sites.
“The essence of being human is that one does not seek perfection.”
The most apropos phrase to describe the events revolving the election from the past few days would be “a failure to unify.” One does not require clairvoyance to predict that this will be a theme which continues to plague our nation to its bedrock.
It is like a gnat. An annoying, incessant buzz in your ear. From September to November, during an election year, you cannot open your phone or turn on the TV without getting ads encouraging you to vote. It is unending. Snapchat, Instagram, Twitter, Spotify, YouTube; ads are plastered all over these sites and while it may be irrational, you can become resentful.
