barking up the wrong tree

Caitlyn Jenner is barking up the wrong tree and, although I am definitely not a fan of her obtuseness or her politics, I concede that she doesn't deserve the level of vitriol she receives in the comments section of this article in Variety.

Most of the people commenting here are ignorant and uneducated and thankfully don't represent the majority of a voting public who likely can be reasoned with. I can tell you without a shadow of a doubt that most of these commenters are Republican voters; the kind who likely gleefully lined up to vote for the ignoramus presently occupying the White House.

Why Caitlyn Jenner is wasting her time petitioning within a fringe version of what was already a right wing party boggles the imagination and is one more reason why I question her judgement in dealing with these matters. Time spent speaking to a Paul Ryan or a Mike Pence would be best spent talking to a wall because political fanaticism on that scale is best left alone.

Jack Molay makes a valiant attempt here to introduce an intelligent comment amidst the nonsensical statements and insults but the responses prove these people haven't got a clue. Not one retorts with even a fraction of actual knowledge of the subject or smartly defers that they don't know enough to be qualified to. It reminds me we have a long way to go even with those who have enough common sense and intelligence to merit our time engaging in discussion.

However, I don't harbor hope in converting everyone but rather count on enough people endowed with the power to set up laws to protect us from the uneducated portion of the masses who won't think critically about a subject preferring instead to resort to echo chamber histrionics.

Caitlyn, I might suggest you look elsewhere for support and wait until this disastrous administration is removed from power....
