If you are going to look to heal then put aside the Witch Hunt of Trump it will achieve nothing but only deepen the divide
Oh good Lord! Why bother having laws at all? Trump's crimes were livestreamed to the world in real time on January 6th. There have to be consequences. If not impeachment, then certainly charges of sedition, inciting a riot and treason.
And the Republicans have done so much to deepen that divide, that it is an insult to everyone's intelligence when they call for unity. If they were in power, do you honestly believe they would be calling for healing and coming together? No, of course not. They'd be patting themselves on the back for successfully subverting democracy.
What you have just said, Czoe, is that there will never be healing unless everyone believes the same as you. That's not healing. That's "conform or shut up".
There is a difference between facts and beliefs. You can believe the Earth is flat all you want - but it's not and it can be proved. Pointing out that you are wrong does not make me a fascist.
So when you say Trump won the election, despite him having zero evidence to back up that claim and there being a mountain of evidence that proves the election was fair and secure, nobody is demanding you "conform or shutup" when they say you are wrong.
They're just saying you're wrong.
yes I am in doubt
The Witch hunt against Trump is futile waste of time and gets nobody anywhere , he is most unlikely to be impeached for anything

you're right Jenifer. But that's not what Czoe's comment said to me. What I read was we all have to believe the same thing in order to have unity. I don't believe that is true. I believe we all have to respect each other's right to have an opinion, Who's right or wrong doesn't even come into it. I am a human being. I can speak. I have the right to have an opinion. Czoe has the right to have an opinion. We need to respect the right that each of us has, to have an opinion. Disunity comes about when one person tells another their opinion isn't right, or it doesn't matter, or they need to think the same thing to live in the same world.
BTW, I am not one of those that said Trump won the election. I wish he did, but apparently he didn't, so life goes on. Disunity also comes about when people are seen as part of a group, not as individuals.

There's a deliberate effort going on to prevent people from healing and coming together in a multicultural world, by trying to confuse unity with white supremacy. And yes, it is an insult to everybody's intelligence.
One of these promotes unity and multiculturalism, and the other promotes white supremacy and division. It's really not that hard to tell them apart.

Your use of the term Witch Hunt implies Trump is innocent and falsely accused.
I know he will not be impeached. Not because he is innocent, but because most Republicans don't care that he is guilty.
