PM: if you are nto republican then why are you even harassing me? But, if you choose to go this route, fine. But, I can't see why I'm bigoted if I
hate republicans of all stripes.
lets put this into simple terms even YOU can understand.
if i said i hated all women or blacks or asians or people with purple hair and i base this statement on a few women blacks asians or those with purple
hair who did or said soemthing i didnt like or disagree with that makes me a bigot. same with you.
i understand not wanting to agree with republicans but until you know every last republican (and you dont) you cant hate every republican.
ive had had crap happen to me,did that give me an excuse to hate an entire group of people because of a one or two or even a few people's actions?
no but you certainly think so.
i've heard some black people say they hate white people. does that give me an excuse to hate all black people? do thats mean i should hate all
black people? CERTAINLY NOT! i've heard white people say they hate blacks. should i hate all white people including myself? nope. i've even
heard one black person i knew personally who said he hated black people himself. i can do this all day using your logic and it would look stupid no
matter what situation i used.
your logic is rather foolish to say the least.
You want so BAD to bring this to a race issue but, its not. Its a belief issue. Republicans believe in things that I think are evil so I dismiss the
entire group---no matter the color. You continue to ignore that so you can call me a racist---just like a republican. You must knoiw that I don't
care b/c you choose to ignore what I say. Whatever, think want you want.
Maybe, I'll buy you a beer and we can talk about it.
racism is a belief system in itself! good grief, certainly you are not really THIS obtuse! are you? i dont want to think you are but your words are
telling me a different story.
again using your logic, if a group of people, democrats, republicans blacks whites men women believe in something i dont like then i have the right to
brush all of the people in said group with the same brush even though i A) do not know all those in that group and B) dont know if they all share the
thats passing judgement on people before you even know who they are. thats bigotry.
you're doing the same thing klansman do.
you're doing the same thing skinheads do.
i think a lot of the things you believe are "evil " (using your word here) but i dont hate you for that, i just disagree with your beliefs, that
doesnt make you evil does it? not in my opinion it doesnt. (although others will disagree with me for sure) i also wont harbor any hatred over your
views because its not worth it. its negativity and stress i dont want or need. i have more important things that i should dwell on. you have the
right to believe whatever it is you want to believe and THAT'S why i dont let it get to me, thats why i dont harbor any hatred over it. i cant
change it and it does me ZERO good to brood over something i cant change.
i dont know how many more ways i have to tell you i am not your enemy. we disagree with the other person's views. so what? doesnt mean we cant get
along or at least be civil with each other.
of course if we all did the things you've talked about doing there would be a small handful of people left on the planet or a lot more fighting and
