BURST YOUR BUBBLE
The American presidential elections were tumultuous, to say the least, with tensions rising high between left and right wing people. With left wing calling Trump supporters, racist, bigots and most of all close minded. When the ‘unthinkable’ happened and Trump won, the gap between left and right just seemed to get bigger. With left wing ‘open minded’ liberals claiming they were moving to Canada.
Saturday Night Live (SNL) shows the hypocrisy of this statement with The Bubble. ‘Coming in January ’17, the bubble is a planned community of like-minded free thinking people. And no one else…’’So if you’re an open minded person come here and close yourself in.’ Perfectly capturing what is causing the gap between left and right. Check the video!
A lot of us see ourselves as inclusive, non-judgmental and open minded. But are we really when we’re not engaging in conversation and just try to get our own point across?
