No - not a troll - and this was posted as its own thread. The one you replied to was (I thought) deleted withing seconds of posting when I saw it in the wrong location. The other thread Here, q.v. was where the activity occurred, and for the most part, thankfully not a vitriolic troll-fest.

It's all about the current state of affairs, where disagreement in the political arena has degenerated into cult-like hate. Logic, common sense, fact-checking, or any other form of intellectual activity seem to have been swept aside for the preferred mindless partisan sloganism.

Aside: since it's highly likely that you down-voted the above, I'm curious: is it because of a (reasonable) perception that I was hijacking a thread or because of disagreement with the premise?
