I'm not going to get into politics, my positions, or even be biased. (The best I can.)
I see all the time that liberals are for "equality and rights for everyone." Now how is that so? I go to ANY form of liberal media and read through the comments. Most of them reiterate what Hillary has already said, or come up with any "insult" that's not much of an insult. For example: "drumpf and his supporters are nasty racist bigots. Lack respect for everything and anyone, those deplorables. They can't stand anyone except themselves, horrible bully's they are. I hate people like them so much, I can't wait until Hillary kicks his white trash to the curb once she wins." Like really? How is that not being a bigot or even anything that they're saying? They're literally calling a good portion of Americans horrible words because they don't like the other opinions.
I head over to the comment section of the conservative media and it's usually much less rude. You have people (for the most part) hoping Trump wins and other than that are calling Hillary a horrible person. They don't go into paragraphs trying to insult a large portion of their fellow Americans. They are also the ones called bigots, racists, etc. It's pretty sad to see.
Do you guys feel the same way? What are your opinions?

Because they are hypocrites. They are only open minded with things they approve of.3

There are a couple things:
- calling ideas horrible is not the same as calling people names.
- I would agree the left has overused accusations of racism etc. There was an interesting recent article suggesting that after years of democrats squawking that people like Bush or Romney were racist, their accusations are now falling on deaf ears, while trump is... well some days i'm not sure he's actually racist, but he is, without question, pandering directly to xenophobic white nationalists to a much higher degree.
- finally, i'm vaguely horrified by the extent to which some left leaning sites mock trump's appearance. Yeah, he's an overweight guy with odd hair. There is a -great- deal of hypocrisy in terms of how some people attack him for that.2
