OH yeah? WTF is that supposed to mean.

(Oh wait, ... never mind)

Since the story came from Infowars, it's easy to confirm the source of the information, as they always give links. The source is PRRI, the Professional Relations and Research Intstitute, a "nonprofit, nonpartisan organization dedicated to conducting independent research at the intersection of religion, culture, and public policy." And yes, according to their research,

"Nearly one-quarter (24%) of Democrats say they blocked, unfriended, or stopped following someone on social media after the election because of their political posts on social media. Fewer than one in ten Republicans (9%) and independents (9%) report eliminating people from their social media circle."

"There is also a substantial gender gap. Women are twice as likely as men to report removing people from their online social circle because of the political views they expressed online (18% vs. 9%, respectively). Notably, the gender gap also differs significantly across political affiliation. Three in ten (30%) Democratic women say they removed an individual from their online social network because of a political opinion they expressed, while only 14% of Democratic men reported doing this. Republican men and women are about equally as likely to say they blocked, unfollowed, or unfriended someone on social media because of political posts (10% vs. 8%, respectively)."

Shit, two in a row....I agree with this one too. Liberals no doubt have a harder time looking the other way.

“Political liberals are far more likely than conservatives to say they removed someone from their social media circle due to what they shared online.” Hmm...that is clearly because liberals are more honest!

"The Philanthropy Chronicle analyzed the itemized charity deductions on the tax returns of hundreds of millions of Americans between 2006 and 2012 and found that poorer conservatives gave more money to charity than wealthy liberals." That is clearly because liberals don't usually write off their donations to charity, as a deduction on their tax returns!

biggrin smiliejolly smilie (BTW, it's "The Chronicle of Philanthropy", and their study confirmed nothing near what your INFOWARS link claimed. )
