I'm pointing it out as a basic human failing that we all have. We're all capable of being Nazis, because the essence is in-group and out-group identities. You all think of yourselves as wanting to live moral lives and defending the weak. Right? But have you ever thought what it would be like to be in Harry's shoes? Just from the sheer numbers of all of you against her. Forget who's right or who's wrong for just a moment or who threw the first stone. There are just so many of you versus her. Doesn't that give you pause?

The cruelty that you all engage in goes unnoticed amongst you. But I notice it. Almost everyday. And it honestly makes me ashamed to be a liberal. Because then I have to wonder if my real life liberal friends are like this, too. And I really hate having to doubt the integrity of my real life friends.
