    The name calling, the demeaning references, the libelous insults, the lack of tolerance and understanding that I've seen in Realjock since I've been here disappoint me. I'm not pointing a finger at any single person or group pf people. Everyone participates in it; everyone is guilty of it; everyone is drawn into it sooner or later.

    With that in mind here's some of what I have to say.

    Bigot:a person who strongly, unfairly or irrationally dislikes other people, their ideas, beliefs etc. A person who hates or refuses to accept or tolerate members of a particular group.

    Bigotry: a state of mind where a person obstinately, irrationally, unfairly or intolerantly dislikes other people, ideas, etc. Some examples include personal beliefs, race, ethnicity, religion, national origin, gender, disability, sexual orientation, political affiliations, socioeconomic status, or other group characteristics.

    Bigotry: intolerance toward those who hold different opinions from oneself:

    Any time one person of any particular group resorts to insulting wholly unfounded name calling or attacks or absurd accusations towards another group or a person because he is a member of that other group....
    It is bigotry.

    A person who sets their own group and it's leaders above criticism or any discussion of their faults and failures...
    Is a bigot.

    A person who summarily refers to any group of people in a manner intent to be demeaning and dehumanizing
    Is a bigot.



    Any questions?

    BIGOT is such an ugly word that members of the KKK and other hate groups have always been offended by its's use.

    Yet what word would both suit their sensitivities and accurately describe their vile views?

    They're bigots. This has nothing to with sensitivities towards anyone for anything. It's calling out bigots wherever they show up. No person or group of people in RJ hasn't exhibited it.

    Now that they know what bigotry really is maybe they will all recognize it in themselves when the are showing it.

    You can go through the forum right now and find 20 - 30 people speaking out of bigotry in the comments who will deny it if you accuse them of it.

    " people speaking out of bigotry in the comments who will deny it if you accuse them of it."

    Agreed.

    In his own mind a bigot sees his hateful positions to be the product of his keen intellectual reasoning.

    Yup! It applies to bigots across the board left to right, high to low, black to white, fundamentalist to atheist.

    The vitriol here is plainly psychotic at times. I've had enough of it and decided to kick back.

    I'll call them out for being what they are not matter which party or whatever.
