44. "Human Garbage"? Did I go to the freeper page by mistake?
That term sucks.

It's the age-old reflex of dehumanizing your enemies so you don't have to treat them as humans. Take that out far enough and you get boxcars headed to Auschwitz, and lynch mobs stringing up "darkies."

There are a lot of people I don't think much of, but bottom line is they're not garbage.

Peace.
