Lost in Translation

A friend of mine sent this to me in an email. I thought it was spot on and decided to share it with you, my WordPress community.

Democrats: We wish cops would stop killing minorities.
Republicans: Dems hate the police.

Democrats: Women should have the right to choose.
Republicans: Dems want to kill babies.

Democrats: LGBT people should have equal rights and not be discriminated against.
Republicans: Dems want to pervert our Christian nation.

Democrats: We need reasonable immigration policies.
Republicans: Dems want open borders.

Democrats: We kneel in protest of inequality.
Republicans: Dems hate the flag, soldiers, and America.

Democrats: We should wear masks and get vaccinated to protect others.
Republicans: Dems want to take away your freedom.

Democrats: We should have common sense gun control laws including universal background checks.
Republicans: Dems want to take away your guns.

Democrats: Feds should not be policing in cities.
Republicans: Dems are encourage rioting

Democrats: People should have a living wage.
Republicans: Dems want to give everyone free stuff.

Democrats: We want religious freedom for everyone.
Republicans: Dems want Sharia Law.

Democrats: Taxes should be used for the benefit of everyone.
Republicans: Dems want socialism.

Democrats: We need definitive action on climate change.
Republicans: Dems want to bankrupt our country to fix a problem that doesn’t really exist.

I’m looking forward to reading your comments. Please feel free to add other mistranslations.

    As was stated in “Cool Hand Luke”, we have a failure of communication here. I think you summed it up very well.

    I notice that Republicans don’t mention the commies any more, reds under the beds. Maybe because they are in bed with them?

    I feel like “miscommunication” misses the point that much of this is intentional “spinning” to create a wedge between us. If you pole people on pure issues without spin we agree on a lot of the same things. I believe both dems and republicans do the spinning, but republicans seem to be more effective at it (with their audience).

    Couldn’t have summed it up better. I don’t see how the rift will ever close. It’s like that movie, Pacific Rim, and the kaiju are those extremist Republican interpretations of where Dems stand. They keep rising from the rift. I just hope divine intervention comes soon.

    As I said, we are not going to solve any of those problems. We aren’t even looking for solutions. We don’t want solutions. We want TO WIN. Even if by winning we destroy our world. It’s depressing.
