Here is a trending Twitter topic that both Republicans and Democrats can equally love and hate …

#LiberalHalloweenTraditions has steadily been pulling in firebrand tweets for the past several hours as both of America’s major political factions band together to wreak havoc through smarmy 140 character social commentary. If you are a Democrat, then #LiberalHalloweenTraditions means something fun and lighthearted — a statement like “allowing kids to choose their own piece of candy rather than forcing a sonogram on them first! #LiberalHalloweenTraditions.” If you’re a Republican however, you’ll likely enjoy comments like, “Taking 45 pieces of candy from every child’s bag. #LiberalHalloweenTraditions”

A large part of the tweeting ceremony involves invoking the name of Democratic Texas governor-hopeful Wendy Davis, who made social media waves in 2013 for her 13-hour filibuster. Why is her name being dragged into it? Who knows? Welcome to the internet.

Isn’t it wonderful that something fun and innocent and largely based around children can be turned into something malicious and spite filled on a social media forum? Here are some of the best tweets on the matter:
