What’s up guys? This is Will Wit with Prager you today. We’re at byu-idaho here in Rexburg. It’s freezing and in unison with my video ” Do you have any Republican friends?” We’re gonna be asking people here if they have any Democrat friends, let’s get started. Would you consider yourself conservative or left-wing? Conservative definitely. More conservative for sure. Republican. More Republican. Okay, would you be friends with a Democrat? Yeah. Yes. Yeah, definitely. Do you guys have any Republican friends? No, thank god. No. – Why not?
– I wouldn’t be friends with someone who’s Republican. It’s a much more liberal City, because there’s so many different diverse people that you really can’t be very big.. Racists or biggoted it in or anything like that. You have to be pretty open-minded.
Would you be friends with a Democrat? I would if they would be open to just hearing my views, instead of just shutting me down. That’s what I’ve seen a lot with some Democrat friends Why do you think it is that the people who are Democrats, people on the Left, don’t want to talk to conservatives? I think they think that we’re not thinking of other people as people from what I’ve heard them talk about they think we’re just looking at facts and numbers because our arguments are so it sounds mean, but logical and their arguments are so emotional. They just feel personally offended sometimes when I bring up certain arguments, so it’s hard to really have a Fair discussion.
So you wouldn’t be my friend? Probably not. Ouch. How do we, how do we fix that? How do we bridge the gap in the divide? just By how we live I think actions do speak louder than words. I guess just Continuing to have calm conversations just showing them that we’re willing to talk but not if it’s gonna get heated. So I guess if you meet in the middle and then, Don’t go so so far right-wing or so far left-wing, you know? Then you can you can sort of meet in the middle on some of your beliefs and then that can bridge the gap. I suppose we just have to show that we are thinking of people as people, and try to ask them to think of more logical arguments, and if we can both just argue in similar ways not even argue just discuss argue makes it sound so angry If we can just discuss in more similar ways, then we’re gonna actually have a ground to discuss upon. Get logical leftists. That’s what we got to do.
