Bigotry: It’s Both Wrong And Stupid

February 15, 2014

Black History Month, each February, generally is thought of as a time to recognize the contributions of African-Americans. But it sometimes makes me wonder what might have been....

"I was taught that God gave us a free will, to like/ dislike and not be influenced by propaganda," richardwhee.

Trouble is, propaganda affects virtually everyone. Propaganda is simply another form of advertising, and advertising is amazingly effective. Edward Bernays was one of the pioneers in the use of controlled communication to control the masses. He applied the science of psychology to the selling of commercial products and politicians to "the masses" who rarely thought for themselves. He applied research findings to swaying public opinion and stimulating people to buy certain products - and it worked! It is still working today.

caltrans “"Breeder" is a derogatory name? Just asking.”

That would be a question to ask your wife. Try calling her "breeder" when she’s preparing dinner and see how she feels about it. Make sure she’s rolling a piecrust or picking up a skillet when you ask her. Have someone ready to take video and post it on you tube so we can all learn from your experience. LOL

Breeder is rather a livestock term.

But a "cowtransplant" should be an expert on that.

swingdog "Bigots have a tendency to excuse their stupidity by claiming others are also bigots."

Describes the Demorat Party perfectly. Witness the recent auto plant vote to REJECT the UAW. Demorats claim that anti-union vote was motivated by racism. Huh? LOL

It's amazing the lengths the prejudiced a-holes here will go to support their ignorance, yet, they continue dying, along with the political party they represent. Sad for our country, yet an evolutionary dead end that so many meet. Your hatred and intolerance has turned on you, the ugly, prejudice evil you have sewn is now destroying you and al like you, and even our great institution, the GOP is succombing to the inability to change.

Actress Ellen Page is gay.

So how does SHE recognize each other's beauty like the marriage between a man and a woman and their desire to procreate a family???

Why is it a one street where the heteros have to accept THEIR lifestyle but THEY don't have to reciprocate.

They call heteros "breeders" and other derogatory names.

Just askin . . . . . . .

Bigotry is stupid. It doesn't become less stupid depending on who practices it. Bigots have a tendency to excuse their stupidity by claiming others are also bigots. There is no excuse. Dumb is dumb!

Patterson said Hillary was no stranger to the "N" word either. He heard her say "n*****" "probably six, eight, ten times. She would be upset with someone in the black community and she would use the 'N' word, like, you heard they've got the president's brother on tape using the 'N' word."

Is HILLARY a BIGOT???

Why would Arkansas state trooper and Clinton bodyguard from 1986 to 1993, Larry Patterson, among others including Dick Morris and other campaign aids say she used the following words if she never did:

Patterson stated that Bill and Hillary Clinton would frequently argue with each other using the worst expletives known to mankind, sometimes in the presence of their daughter Chelsea. Some of the anti-Semitic slurs with which she commonly laced her tirades against Bill were "Jew mother****er," "Jew Boy" and "Jew Bastard."

"If she disagreed with Bill Clinton or she disagreed with some of the Jewish community in Little Rock -- or some of the ethnic community -- she would often make these statements." "She would say ' Jew Bastard' or call her husband a 'Jew boy' or a 'mother****ing Jew'," Patterson told the WABC New York radio audience.

Patterson said he heard Hillary "utter anti-Jewish epithets between 10 and 20 times o

Unfounded claims of bigotry give people with a failed ideology an excuse for their failure.

But truthless, since you want to bring up other forms of bigotry, there are these:

"No, no. I have been practicing...I bowled a 129. It's like -- it was like Special Olympics, or something." – anti-disabled bigotry of Barack Obama

"Hold on one second, sweetie, we're going to do -- we'll do a press avail." –sexist bigotry Barack Obama to a female reporter

"It's not surprising, then, they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations." – anti-Christian bigotry of Barack Obama

truthless, the article was specifically about racial bigotry. Like this:

"The point I was making was not that Grandmother harbors any racial animosity. She doesn't. But she is a typical white person, who, if she sees somebody on the street that she doesn't know, you know, there's a reaction that's been bred in our experiences..." – anti-white bigotry of Barack Obama

Demorats HAVE NO ANSWERS to justify the obvious DISMAL FAILURES of their liberal “Progressive” domestic POLICIES or their FAILED foreign POLICIES of appeasement and denial.

Since Demorats CANNOT defend their failed LIBERAL POLICIES, they THEMSELVES despicably make an issue of the ethnicity of their FAILED leader, and desperately turn to FALSE charges of racism to DISTRACT you from conservatives’ REAL, VALID criticisms of their LIBERAL POLICIES.

Fortuately the American people can see through the desperate Demorat deception. Demorats, America is beyond tired of your false charges of racism. Your desperation becomes clearer, and you look more ridiculous and pathetic, with every dirty Demorat trick. LOL

In five years, the liberal “Progressive” redistributionist policies of Barry Obamboozler and his dirty Demorat regime have MORE THAN DOUBLED the number of Americans who are unemployed or underemployed and living in poverty - 48 MILLION Americans now surviving on Food Stamps, the labor participation rate DOWN to a dismal 63%. The WRECKLESS fiscal policies of the Obamboozler Administration have DOUBLED the National Debt to an unfathomable $17.3 TRILLION. Barry Obamboozler’s LIE OF THE YEAR – that after the Obamascam health insurance tax law you could keep your health insurance, period - has resulted in the LOSS of health insurance for 7 MILLION Americans. Fatal failures of the Obamboozler Administration in an illegal gun running scheme in Mexico and a security debacle in Benghazi, Libya, have resulted in the DEATHS of American Border Patrol agent, an American Ambassador, and three American diplomats.

How can anyone take this seriously? The general feel of this paper is not one of tolerance, inclusion, kindness, or humanity. I hope the writer truly believes his words.
