Here we have two examples of American bigotry. Now for some more, Jeff Foxworthy style.
If you cannot admit the Confederate Flag is now seen as a racist symbol….you might be a bigot.
If you compare Southerners to Nazis, or think anyone who identifies with that flag is a racist…you might be a bigot.
If you think all Muslims are jihadists…you might be a bigot.
If you think all Christians are homophobes…you might be a bigot.
If you cannot have a discussion without attacking the other side…you might be a bigot and are definitely an asshole with no credibility.
If you think all Latinos are illegal…you might be a bigot.
If you feel a gay couple should not be married through the state…you might be a bigot.
If you are a gay couple expecting a Christian church to cater to your marriage…you might be a bigot.
If you are black and use the word “nigger” as in “hey my nigga” then call out others saying it….you might be a bigot.
If you feel only “whites” are racist…you might be a bigot.

If you feel anyone on food stamps is a freeloader…you might be a bigot.
If you feel the only acceptable use of a handicapped placard is for those who cannot walk…you might be a bigot.
If you feel any issue is one sided….you might be a bigot.
If you feel any patient using opiates is an addict…you might be a bigot.
If you consider medical marijuana patients “stoners”…you might be a bigot.
If you don’t admit cannabis can be intoxicating and dangerous for some…you might be a bigot.
If you feel any other race or ethnicity is beneath you for any reason…you might be a bigot.
If you marginalize the experience of any human being…you might be a bigot.
If you assume all overweight people are lazy, and did that to themselves…you might be a bigot.
If you think all gun owners are Bible thumping rednecks…you might be a bigot.
If you think we don’t need some regulation with guns…you might be a bigot.
If you think all police are abusive scum of the Earth…you might be a bigot.
If you ignore that we do have abusive police officers…you might be a bigot.
If you believe girls aren’t good at math or sports…you might be a bigot.
If you believe humans don’t have differences and should be the same…you might be a bigot.
If you believe the “privileged, white male’s” experience doesn’t matter…you might be a bigot.
If you don’t understand that “better, truth, and faith” are all subjective…you might be a bigot.
If you use any religion to justify the spread of hate…you might be a bigot.
If you make jokes about the cat population outside an Asian restaurant…you might be a bigot.
If you think black kids are only good at sports…you might be a bigot.
If you think a gay couple shouldn’t raise/have children because they’ll molest them…you might be a bigot.
If you think people aren’t entitled to their own opinions, which come from their own experiences….you might be a bigot.
So basically, if you are an extremist in any form, you are practicing bigotry and part of the problem – not the solution. America needs to pull its big kid underdrawers up and have an incredibly candid, BUT KIND discussion about how we marginalize anything the media tells us to and not putting a stop to hate. The general consensus is that hate is wrong, so why perpetuate the polarization of people? That causes wars, not change. Until then, keep your mouth shut – because you are part of the problem. Freedom of speech doesn’t equal freedom from consequences, and any hate speech towards anything is actually NOT in that amendment – learn your history. By ANY hate speech – I mean ANY hate speech.
Imagine if a car sales rep smacked you hard, and then proceeded to try and happily sell you a car like nothing happened. Would you act like nothing happened, and listen to him enthusiastically? OR, would you immediately become defensive and discredit what the sales rep said? Yeah, thought you would say punch that Mo’fo back. Words act the same way. If you come out swinging with things like bad, extremist comparisons or starting your thoughts with “I don’t know why all you Southerners”, then expect every word you said to be discredited and no adult conversations to ensue. Same with “if you don’t like it, move” or “you libtards are just trying to sell your agenda”. Or even “all you conservative rednecks” is a good one. We are amazing at mud-slinging, so why not show we can be amazing at compromising too.
Go home America, you seem to be drunk – and honestly need a joint to calm you down.
