Labeling ideas you dont agree with as "stupid racist bigotry", is in fact stupid racist bigotry!

How insightful.

I think the blatant bigotry in your statement isn't funny at all.

Its very hard for a straight, christian, white male landowner to be a victim of bigotry.


I see you are doing your part to correct that.


Example,



For ex. They may say it is fair for their white-ass rich self to have the right to marry

Look in the mirror, bigots come in all labels.

Right? My gosh!

I've been called a traitor, the enemy... told I hate Christians and white people, that I have white guilt, that I hate men, that I'm an SJW, an authoritarian (I'm an anarchist that can read law). But we're the bad guys... only us.

Let me explain this to you again: NO ONE has any right to marry.

It takes the agreement of more than yourself in order for you to marry. You must, for example, ask another person and they must agree to it. If that person says no, have you been denied your "right" (race and orientation not important for this much)?

If so, I guess I will be asking all the richest men I know to marry me so that when they refuse, I can sue their pants off in court. Hell, why stop at men? I can ask the richest women too.

Anti-PC people didnt set themselves up this huge overarching 'moral high ground' position based on being anti-bigot. Even worse the Etc Shaming bullying tactic used to enforce it.

The PC lot did. And now that I've noticed I get to have my fun with it.

For any group to take on that position is hilariously self-defeating because there's no way hundreds of millions of people (the entire mass social group that is) are going to be entirely beyond human tribal instinct. Whatever genius came up with this as the new international progressive platform, well, I doubt he ever much played Pitfall as a child.

Racism & bigotry are effectively the same thing.

My premise is that slandering people that disagree as being "bigots", to then Bigot Shame them, that is bigotry too. Read the thread!

Wow and there was me thinking your vote was private and personal to you, unless you wanted to share your decision.

Yes, the old remember the days before the E.U and how things have changed for the worse. They could actually see that Austerity was being driven internally from the E.U, after all the members have been bailing out other member's banks, which consequently meant less spending on their own public services.

The U.K did not borrow any less under Cameron, n fact they borrowed a lot more than any previous Government by some margin. But instead of it all being spent on services and infrastructure in the U.K, we were lending it to other E.U members and world banks.

The young know no different and seem to enjoy the security of servitude. They failed to group though, as around 55% of 18-24 year olds did not vote, and that's the turning point there. Want to blame a certain generation? Then blame the 18-24 year olds apathy.

But in all fairness if anything was to blame, it's the arrogance of Cameron. He called the referendum because he thought he could kill UKIP once we voted to stay in.

The racism card has been used quite a bit on social media over here, and even the MSM are hyping up any racist incident that occurs.

“When people have invested their identities into clichés, the only counter argument they have is 'being offended'.”

Calling someone a sexist, racist, bigot, is the lefts way of discrediting someone they encounter who is too well read and intelligent to beat in a typical debate. It's very counterproductive.

Here is an excellent example of labeling.
Black pride

Black pride is a movement in response to dominant white cultures and ideologies that encourages black people to celebrate black culture and embrace their African heritage.[1] In the United States, it was a direct response to white racism especially during the Civil Rights Movement.[2] Related movements include black power,[2] black nationalism,[2] Black Panthers, Afrocentrism, and black supremacism.


Gay Pride

Gay pride or LGBT pride is the positive stance against discrimination and violence toward lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people to promote their self-affirmation, dignity, equality rights, increase their visibility as a social group, build community, and celebrate sexual diversity and gender variance. Pride, as opposed to shame and social stigma, is the predominant outlook that bolsters most LGBT rights movements throughout the world.


Asain Pride

In the United States, Asian pride (also spelled AZN pride) is a positive stance to being Asian American. The term arose from influences of hip hop culture within Asian American communities in the Western United States due to the creation of an Asian American pan-ethnicity (the concept was influenced in the late 20th century due to the influence of publications such as Yolk and Giant Robot magazines) that did not specify a specific ethnicity (such as Vietnamese, or Hmong).[1][2] Younger Asian Americans are finding strength from their Asian identity.[3] However, the pan-ethnicity Asian American concept is not embraced by many Asian Americans in the United States.[4]


White Pride

White pride is a motto primarily used by white separatist, white nationalist, neo-Nazi and white supremacist organizations to signal racist or racialist viewpoints

And I usually don't have a problem with people taking an element of pride in their heritage either.

What I do have a problem with is when it tips over into racism or bigotry against those who are not like them.

It's like that moment when patriotism tips over into jingoism. Yes, you can have too much of a good thing, and that does go for all groups, and part of recognizing when you have too much of a good thing is when your pride moves you to seek to deny others their own measure of pride in who and what they are. What goes around, comes around.

Yes, there were times when blacks and gays and others were downtrodden, but now they are not. And if they are going to be responsible, they need to make sure they are not simply retreading the steps of other groups before them. As soon as they start, they are no better in their pride than anyone else.

Except it's largely BS. 'We' don't go around calling people racists or bigots all the time, especially just out of disagreement. Like I said before sure, it happens but the frequency is imagined... or more like echo chambered. If one person says: "Only racists disagree with Obama" it's like the entire left of center population said it, the group think and blanket labeling is real... and tired. It's enough already. Not only do 'we' have to put with 'your' insults (libtard commie et al) but we have to be assigned a cookie cutter personality too.

I think 'you' all doth protest too much because you can dish out just fine but clearly cannot take it.

Maybe the recent rise in racist hate crimes, lends some credence to this argument

Maybe voting to leave doesn't make you a racist, but from what I can tell most racists voted to leave.

I don't know how much time you spend perusing the comments sections in various places, but they are common accusations leveled at posters who are right of center by those who are not. Occasionally, I agree with the accusation. Some posters are making blatantly racist or anti-gay comments, but more often, they are simply disagreeing.

It used to be rational and common sense to call out bigots, and racists, and nutty ideas. As a kid growing up in the 1950-60s, we used to step around people on the sidewalk who had signs and shouted crazy thoughts. Now those bigoted, racist (whit supremacist), crazy thoughts have been forced to become mainstream and above reproach. Even right wing conservative William F. Buckley, Jr., called out certain right wing extreme ideas as "so far removed from common sense" and warned about his party being taken over by those who held such ideas.

As a backlash to perceived immorality of moral relevancy, we have gone from a nation priding itself on rational thought to one where "moral irrelevancy" has free reign. Everything should be treated the same. False equivalency means that a scratch is the same as a gash, and we must look for the same among all sides and promote false equivalencies. Irrational anarchism.

This "new common sense" and "new common decency" is idiocracy in bloom. Make America Rational Again. Or at least bring back old fashioned reasonableness and common sense.

There is no evidence of an increase in actual crime figures from what I have read, only the increase of reporting it by the MSM.

For sure the racists would vote leave, but then again, maybe they couldn't read the ballot paper, eh?

If you want us to stop bullying you, start agreeing with our ideology. Otherwise, we might eventually get around to breaking your kneecaps instead of simply making threats.

I'm afraid the same thing is going to happen with Hillary if she ends up being the next president. She has spewed feminism bollock quite a bit and will most likely push the feminism movement into overdrive. Say anything against her and you'll be labeled misogynist.
