Author Nick Cole posted on his FB page:

To those who are grieving this morning… grieve. I understand. I am so sorry.
To those who achieved victory… be gracious. No matter what.
To all of you… we have a Republic, if we can keep it. And WE are ALL its children. Love one another. No matter what.
God bless America.

I left the following comment:

Sorry, Nick, but The Other Side™ has been diligently working for 100 years at demonizing their opposition. Charles Krauthammer correctly identified the issue when he made his declaration in 2002:

“To understand the workings of American politics, you have to understand this fundamental law: Conservatives think liberals are stupid. Liberals think conservatives are evil.”

If you believe your opposition is EVIL, then there is no “loving your enemy” – they aren’t merely wrong, they’re EVIL and must be not merely defeated, but destroyed.

That’s been increasingly how the Left has been working for the last couple of decades now, while the opposite side of the aisle has been treating them as “The Loyal Opposition.” WE’RE in a contest. THEY’RE fighting a WAR, with nothing less than the fate of humanity riding on the outcome. We get involved in politics every couple of years, maybe. For them, it’s existential.

See 2005′s March of the Lemmings, or 2008′s Human Reconstruction, the Healing of Souls, and the Remaking of Society.

Bring on the Trump Derangement Syndrome™! The next four years promise to be fascinating.
