I was thinking at the time that this was completely uncalled for and this customer is some kind of racist.


Sounds like a very judgemental look at a customers anger and a very intolerant view of seeing it as racist.
Maybe the man had darn good reason to be po'd about a product that wasn't satisfactory.

As a matter of fact that whole post reeked of intolerance and was basically more hypocritical liberal lunacy aimed at right wingers disguised as some " wise insight"🙄

Yes.. this is me being tolerant 😏.. you don't wanna see me and I don't wanna see me get to a point where I am truly intolerant.

The whole Politically correct scene is the most intolerant brain washing crap to hit this planet.

So the "put a chain on your ape" comment wasn't racist?

I believe Americans who are Muslims living in this country deserve the same rights that you have.


Really? Because you just wrote: "being gay and Muslim is the worse possible human condition."

Or...were you just exploiting gay Muslims to try to make conservatives look bad and make yourself look like a totes beautiful freedom-fighting liberal?

So I should just be accepting of the "put a chain your ape" comment?

I completely agree, however, this OP is about tolerance not rights.

I don't have to like them to tolerate them.

If you read further into the article it says this:


Conservative political views were correlated with coldness toward liberals, gays and lesbians, transgender people, feminists, atheists, people on welfare, illegal immigrants, blacks, scientists, Hispanics, labor unions, Buddhists, Muslims, hippies, hipsters, Democrats, goths, immigrants, lower-class people and nerds. Liberal political views, on the other hand, were correlated with coldness toward conservatives, Christian fundamentalists, rich people, the Tea Party, big business, Christians, Mormons, the military, Catholics, the police, men, whites, Republicans, religious people, Christians and upper-class people.


And here's the fundamental difference: Conservatives tend to react with coldness to the powerless while liberals tend react with coldness to those in power.

I don't care about your cherry-picking defense of minorities. I am not impressed. You seem to be more interested in exploiting them to make yourself 'look good,' than doing anything constructive. It's not like you claimed to stand up for Alvin. You just told the story to make some point about conservatives being racist...i think, and some point about how you gave a sh*t...which i am not convinced of from your story.

TBH, it sounds like you were totally accepting of the "put a chain your ape" comment.

I'm a nice, peaceful person who lives in the Bible belt. I'm also transgender. Should I expect to visit the deep south and expect the Christian conservateeves to spend a nice, friendly time with tgem?

Maybe you should try a little more tolerance for a frustrated customer ?

We really don't know the facts of what your employee said or did while handling the complaint , do we?

I think it was presumptuous of you to call him racist and shows perhaps a racism you may have ?

Peace OP.. just being honest .. try to tolerate my honesty as I try to tolerate yours 😉

I see lots of groups there and not remotely all of them are groups "in power" though.

Fundies are "in power?" The TEA Party is "in power?" General Christians and/or Mormons are "in power?" Men are "in power?" Whites are "in power?" Religious people are "in power?" Christians, but they repeat themselves ...

It is better, more accurate to say that liberals react with coldness toward tradition.

Wow. I guess what I said wasn't clear. I have heard people call Obama "gay" and a "Muslim". My point is people who say Obama is "gay" and a "Muslim" are being bigots and prejudice. My point is how is being "gay" or being "Muslim" the worse possible human condition? I would never even use those words in a sentence like that. I just do not care if someone is "gay" or if someone is a "Muslim". I see people as people first. Labels second.

If I met you on the street tomorrow I would very nice to you. Once you started complaining about Obama being a gay Muslim we would probably not be hanging out together.

What the heck is this argument? I would not have said anything if I did not hear on numerous occasions my many people referring to Obama as "gay" and a "Muslim". It's like hundreds of references. I think labeling anyone with a derogatory label is some form of intolerance.

Again, being intolerant to someone else's intolerance isn't intolerance.

Black people claim white police are being racists because police stop black people in cars with a greater frequency than whites for no cause. This is what black people call racism and intolerance. Please give me an example where liberals are intolerant to right wingers or conservatives on anything? Give me a solid example.

Are you going to behave like an activist to make a point or just be a person?

It seems everyone expects all hell to break loose when someone introduces the "other" to "The Deep South" because I recall a video where a university group was trying to make a point about how bigoted Southerners were by taking a woman in full Muslim garb to a restaurant in a small town in "The Deep South."

Guess what? No one batted an eye and everyone was friendly.

Hey whatever. If you can't see "put a chain on your ape" had nothing to do our business then that's your problem right there!

Woah, woah, woah ...

Now it's the worst kind of bigotry to even speculate on whether or not someone might be gay? Or Muslim?

So when I see those Somali gals shopping in their headscarves, should I just assume they're likely Shinto? Or would that be racist and bigoted of me too?

Disagree. Obama got a pass on Larry Sinclair when he was wrongfully jailed on a bogus warrant issued by Beau Biden's Delaware AG office. Larry is gay, he made allegations about Obama that Obama never denied...and yet it is Obama that liberals stand up for, not Larry. Larry lived on disability payments that were cut off after he made those allegations, he spent 2 weeks in jail in violation of his Constitutional protections...yet it is always Obama and Biden that Democrats defend.

And let's talk about Obama promising that ending the wars would be his number one priority if elected. Millions of civilians in Iraq and Afghanistan were murdered in those wars...and Democrats didn't care about the wars, at all, once Obama was elected. Obama exploited them for a vote and buck...and yet liberals praised him like he was the second coming.

And they defended THE MOST POWERFUL MAN IN THE WORLD for eight years like he was a beaten, mistreated puppy.

Bleh.

The OP is correct. Both parties have huge issues with prejudice. And they both seem to favor those in power and belonging to their favorite party.

Liberals are no more tolerant than any other group of people. They spew as much hate and intolerance at conservatives as any group does to another.

If we had a multi-party system, wouldn't people be even more divided? At least now it's 50/50, if there were more parties we would be divided even further (for example if we had 4 major parties we would be divided 25/25/25/25).

I wasn't the one saying Obama was a "gay Muslim". Do you get that right?

Let be very clear and simple. Do you think calling Obama a "gay Muslim" is some kind of racism? If not, then what is it?
