How to deal with racist asshole

My wife is called lots of nasty things in her language by others from her country. She is a whore, a race traitor and a hates her country for marrying me.

I found that the best way to deal with a racist asshole is to go so far below the belt you are actively digging up ground.

A week from day, I head to Selangor in Malaysia to start my new job

I am the Dean of Humanities at an International private school near Kuala Lumpur.

This will be my second jaunt into Asia, after being in East Asia, now it's Southeast Asia.

Other than the job, the best part is I am no more than a 2.5 hour flight to some of the best beaches in the world (Bali, Phuket, Krabi, Penang, Kota Kinabalu, Maledives) and 90 minutes from Bangkok and Singapore!

Luckily, I speak fluent Mandarin and Cantonese, so hopefully picking up Bahasa won't be too hard, as it will be my 6th language.

The reason for such venom at Bernie and his supporters from HRC fans

Keep in mind that even though I support Bernie in the primary, if Hillary is the candidate, she has my vote.

Now, onto the post:

Probably the biggest reason why HRC supporters and surrogates, even those here at DU, attack Bernie with everyone from calling him a fascist, a sexist, a racist, a hypocrite, etc. is because they saw an upstart candidate in 2008 overtake her, win the nomination and then win the general twice.

That sting is still fresh. They see Bernie doing the same thing Obama did and don't want their horse falling down like she did to Obama. Losing to Barack Obama was very painful, so every weapon in the book is needed and being used to attack and destroy another Democrat so the coronation can begin as scheduled.

I expect to get attack mercilessly for this post and even having it sent to a jury, but this is just one man's opinion based on watching politics for 25 years and tracking it for even longer.

About Feeling the Bern

Principle before party is my belief. Lifelong Democrat, but I have no tolerance for blue dogs, tepid centrists, or weak Democrats that feel apologetic to Republicans. The way to win a political war is to fight the enemy using their tactics against them.
