The hate and rhetoric on this site makes me very sad it is affiliated in any way (even loosely) with the University of Notre Dame.

I'm not sure why persuasive speech would make you sad, but as far as hate goes, I must have missed something. People have strong opinions about politics, so it's pretty common to see impassioned defenses of those opinions on a website dedicated to the discussion of politics. It's best not to confound passion and hate. If the language on this site bothers you, I suggest you avoid political blogs altogether, since you won't like what you find out there.
