I am a bigot
I don't like republicans, neocons, fundies (RW, LW, christian, muslim or any other variety), anyone who voted for the little bushturd, or the St. Louis frigging Cardinals.

I don't have a problem with disliking, even hating, these groups, without respect to whether or not I know any specific individuals belonging to one of these groups. My hatred of them is purely, coldly rational self preservation (with the exception of the St. Louis frigging Cardinals).

So sue me.

1. Too much effort to do that...
Edited on Sun Nov-14-04 02:22 PM by Mikimouse
My life philosophy is very simple:
There are two kinds of people in the world.
1. People who can take a joke and laugh at themselves (progressives, intellectuals, DUers,etc.) They're OK.
2. People who can't and won't take a joke or laugh at themselves (Repukes, fundies, * loyalists, etc.) Fuck 'em! Not deserving of my attention.

2. Isn't a bigot someone who hates people for who they are,
not the choices they've made. All of your target groups chose their poison, if you will. Therefore, you are not a bigot!

14. According to wikipedia, yes
I think that intolerance of fundamentalist sociopaths should be considered a reasonable attitude at this point.

3. So whence comes your hatred of the Cardinals?
Just out of curiosity. Even bigots usually have some anecdotal basis for their prejudice. :)

4. I grew up a Cubs fan
rooting for two teams. The Cubs and whoever was playing the Cardinals.
