he wasn’t necessarily lecturing the guy. you never lost contact with a friend of yours because of petty political conflict? I also did, the ones who support Erdogan wholeheartedly come to mind, some others too. You don’t really have to lecture them, expressing an opinion is enough for them to get offended and stop writing you. Think of friends you had in the past who supported Catalan independence or premiership of Pedro Sanchez et cetera." Actually we also lost touch some time ago, after I told him that his relentless whining about the shortcomings of Miami Haitians was of no interest me."
LoL, forgetting what you wrote yesterday? what's wrong with you? NEWSFLASH: you aren't the only person with the right to relentless whine, did he ever tell you he wasn't interested in your relentless whining about his president?
BH’s example is even worse because the bloke is an immigrant and once he settles down in his new country, he thinks he has the right to oppose any new immigrants arriving. Happens all the time in the world, when you get comfortable you forget all your past struggles. Think of the recent spanish film, El Hoyo.
