I don’t think being friends with people with different viewpoints from yours is a bad thing. We have a huge political divide in the world right now. Cutting out people with different political beliefs just means that the only place they can look for friendship is in other people with the same beliefs, which is partially why both sides have become more extreme and the middle is disappearing. And for that reason, I prefer Colin’s stance of being inclusive rather than the Kinda Funny stance of “if you don’t agree with us, then just leave”. To word it another way, racism is objectively bad, but if you immediately demonize everyone who has different political beliefs to yours, is that really any better?
