It’s funny…………

October 21, 2010

I belong to a very left leaning message board.  They are extremely intolerant of anyone who thinks differently then they do.

And, they use vile names to describe conservatives.

Definition of BIGOT

: a person obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices; especially : one who regards or treats the members of a group (as a racial or ethnic group) with hatred and intolerance
big·ot·ed\-gə-təd\ adjective
big·ot·ed·ly adverb

Examples of BIGOT

  1. He was labeled a bigot after making some offensive comments.
  2. <an incorrigible bigot who hasn’t entertained a new thought in years>

This is a perfect description of most of these people on the message board.

I often wonder why I continue to post there? It puzzles me. The only thing I can think of is that not everyone on the board is that way,  and there are actually people I like there.

And then if I were to post an opposing view,  they all have the gang up mentality and reply with the name calling.

One of their favorites is to call any conservative an idiot or stupid.

Nice huh???  For a bunch of “tolerant” people,  (or so they claim) they are mostly very intolerant of differing views.
