How do you convince people to value compassion? Thoughtful piece by Kayla Chadwick
Like many Americans, I’m having politics fatigue. Or, to be more specific, arguing-about-politics fatigue.

I haven’t run out of salient points or evidence for my political perspective, but there is a particular stumbling block I keep running into when trying to reach across the proverbial aisle and have those “difficult conversations” so smugly suggested by think piece after think piece:

I don’t know how to explain to someone why they should care about other people.

Personally, I’m happy to pay an extra 4.3 percent for my fast food burger if it means the person making it for me can afford to feed their own family. If you aren’t willing to fork over an extra 17 cents for a Big Mac, you’re a fundamentally different person than I am.

I’m perfectly content to pay taxes that go toward public schools, even though I’m childless and intend to stay that way, because all children deserve a quality, free education. If this seems unfair or unreasonable to you, we are never going to see eye to eye.

If I have to pay a little more with each paycheck to ensure my fellow Americans can access health care? SIGN ME UP. Poverty should not be a death sentence in the richest country in the world. If you’re okay with thousands of people dying of treatable diseases just so the wealthiest among us can hoard still more wealth, there is a divide between our worldviews that can never be bridged.

I don’t know how to convince someone how to experience the basic human emotion of empathy. I cannot have one more conversation with someone who is content to see millions of people suffer needlessly in exchange for a tax cut that statistically they’ll never see (do you make anywhere close to the median American salary? Less? Congrats, this tax break is not for you).

I cannot have political debates with these people. Our disagreement is not merely political, but a fundamental divide on what it means to live in a society, how to be a good person, and why any of that matters.

There are all kinds of practical, self-serving reasons to raise the minimum wage (fairly compensated workers typically do better work), fund public schools (everyone’s safer when the general public can read and use critical thinking), and make sure every American can access health care (outbreaks of preventable diseases being generally undesirable).

But if making sure your fellow citizens can afford to eat, get an education, and go to the doctor isn’t enough of a reason to fund those things, I have nothing left to say to you.

I can’t debate someone into caring about what happens to their fellow human beings. The fact that such detached cruelty is so normalized in a certain party’s political discourse is at once infuriating and terrifying.

The “I’ve got mine, so screw you,” attitude has been oozing from the American right wing for decades, but this gleeful exuberance in pushing legislation that will immediately hurt the most vulnerable among us is chilling

Democrat activist says "if you uphold the law, I will kill your kids.
Police: Dem activist threatens to murder congressman's children
'If you're going to separate kids at the border, I'm going to kill his kids'

Joe Kovacs is an award-winning journalist and, since 1999, executive news editor of WND. He is the author of the brand-new best-selling book, "Shocked by the Bible 2: Connecting the Dots in Scripture to Reveal the Truth They Don't Want You to Know," a follow-up to his No.1 best-seller "Shocked by the Bible: The Most Astonishing Facts You've Never Been Told"

A Florida man is behind bars for allegedly threatening to murder the children of a Republican congressman amid the national debate over immigration policies.

The suspect is Laurence Wayne Key of Stuart, Florida, who is reportedly active with the Martin County Democratic Party as well as Planned Parenthood.

The congressman is U.S. Rep. Brian Mast of Florida, who represents the South Florida district in which Key resides.

According to WPTV, a criminal complaint indicates Key allegedly phoned Mast’s Washington, D.C. office Monday, telling an intern: “I’m going to find the congressman’s kids and kill them. If you’re going to separate kids at the border, I’m going to kill his kids. Don’t try to find me because you won’t.”

The FBI was notified and Key was arrested a short time after the investigation began.

Key reportedly told the FBI and a Martin County deputy he did not threaten to kill Mast’s children, but explained that if the congressman supported the immigration policies of President Trump, Mast should be separated from his own children.

According to the criminal complaint, Key contacted Mast’s office 478 times. He also contacted the offices of two other lawmakers on Monday, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., and U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla.

On his social-media pages, Key is politically active, volunteering for the local Democratic Party, and his Facebook cover photo expresses love for Planned Parenthood.

Friends reportedly call the suspect a “gentle soul,” not believing he would hurt anyone.

Radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh cited Key’s arrest as part of the media’s influence on Americans, prompting some to get violent.

“You’ve got the media driving people crazy,” Limbaugh said. “They’ve already begun shooting Republicans at baseball practice, [for example, Republican Congressman] Steve Scalise.”

He noted immigration “remains the focus of all these deranged leftists trying to get Trump.”
