Laeti vescimur nos sabacturis

I wonder if these conservative intellectuals know that latin words are engraved in our dollar bills?

E Pluribus unum


Clearly you hate our country by noting that.....

Well ain't this a load of snip.

So instead bigots bash conservatives eh.

Pot meet kettle.


LOL It's because these conservatives are so stupid. You don't think these people are retarded? I'm an independent, so I can make fun of everyone!


I hate to break it to some people but the left isn't as smart as they think themselves to be.



The left has it's excesses and idiots, but it is factually true that with higher levels of education, a higher percentage of people are generally more liberal, on everything from the environment to birth control to religion. All correlations, but well known.

something to consider: "conservatives" aren't stupid. The people doing this are stupid.

Labelling them with a political affiliation only causes the stupidity to be thrown into the realm of politics, where partisanship will force otherwise intelligent people to defend the behavior.

Because i am as conservative as it gets. Conservative libertarian....but conservative nonethless.

I do think there are many intelligent conservatives, especially more in the libertarian camp. The Republican Party, less of them.

However, I do think that you guys have to own the fact that there is a really large chunk of "conservatives" (perhaps who don't even know why they label themselves that way) who are really ignorant, low information, backwards, racist, sexist etc.
This doesn't mean all of you by any means. But it's pretty obvious to most of the country and world. Ask others outside of the US about the Republicans.

Point taken.

However, how do I get past the fact that all of those people who are outraged about the "Latins" are self identifying conservatives?

In a logical sense, I realize that not all conservatives are stupid, and I actually have some libertarian views and the older I get the more conservative I get, but...I'm like...do I blame this all on talk radio, fox news and brainwashing??

Oh, i figured out where it was going with that statement: instead of marvelling at the moronic behavior desccribed in the OP, its more about defending a political party.

I better get in touch with the EEOC. All those people shouting "Mexicans, go back to Rome" might be having their civil rights violated right here on ATS.

Excuse me....but what does any of that have to do with the topic? Besides deflecting?

Looks like the Bernie Sanders sockpuppet crowd has infiltrated the Facebook ranks disguised as Conservatives !!!

Classic set up and rehearsed reactions.

Definitely blue ribbon material

Yeah well if people want to get technical here.

The Spainards conquered Mexico that was a part of the Roman Empire many moons ago.

So telling them to go back home ?

Actually works for anyone who has ever opened up a history book.

This really is just madness - ignorant bigoted, unthinking and stupid madness!!


The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.


Yes it is!

All I see in this is overt political trolling, childish name calling and bigotry from both the Left and the Right.

Divide and conquer is as old as civilization and yet people are still foolish enough to fall for it. Keep everyone at each others throats and they are very easy to control. They spend their time flinging poo at each other like so many apes.

It does not take a genius to note that the real reason for this includes bad schools, bad teachers and parents who turn over their children's schooling to people who could give a damn whether the kids they teach learn anything.

Political trolling is in fact another form of bigotry, add it to the list of dumb things we humans do.

As an ATS Staff Member, I will not moderate in threads such as this where I have participated as a member.

Miss the TOPIC ?

Can't get any more partisan that it.

Gee I wonder what the definition of BIGOT is ?



: a person who is 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


www.merriam-webster.com...

Pot calling the kettle.


Are you officially declaring Conservatives a race or ethnic group?

Being a bigot is not limited to race.

Dunno why all the purported 'smart' people think it is.

Because society trains people to think it is.
