Opponents – not enemies

This morning (Tuesday) I heard a Liberal Party member refer to the ALP as “the enemy”.
Just a moment there – does that mean that the Libs reckon that if you don’t agree with their political views, you are an “enemy”? No freedom of opinion. No different opinions? A political dictatorship? Shades of A Hitler?
I have heard this description several times lately – the Libs should remember that ALP parliamentarians/voters are also Australians and are trying to be good Australians and make this country better and happier…they simply have different views – not necessarily wrong views – just different.
Opponents but never enemies.
