In Harlem, we know hate hurts. No matter if the hatred comes from a streetcorner demagogue, or a candidate for presidency of the United States. Hate words have a way of turning into hate actions. Every soul is precious. No one is disposable.
The intent of a demagogue is not reasoned discussion, but solely to inflame. To anger people so much that they won't stop to think. And it's growing in a segment of leadership within the Republican Party.
Demagogues like Coughlin and Beck use ever more shrill appeals to cause serious short-term turmoil but, in the process, turn their followers' hearts to stone. People are happier, Day believed, when they are good.
