It goes to the character of the man, which I feel is important.
No it goes to your character actually. If you try to destroy someone by making personal attacks in the hope that it will end his political career,
you're nothing more than a coward. Neocons aren't intelligent enough to make relevant policy-based arguments so they make fallacious attacks on a
person's alleged background. You exploit the known biases and preexisting hatred of those around you in order to twist their wills toward your own
You know many people hate gays, blacks, Muslims, illegal immigrants, etc. So, you argue that it doesn't matter what the president says or does
because he is a member of one or all of these stigmatized classes. Worse then that - he's a "secret member," meaning that not only is a gay,
black, muslim, illegal immigrant, but he's been trying to hide it! You sir, are pathetic.
You serve to not only make false and malicious allegations but you simultaneously bolster the societal stigmas against these groups. You purposely
fuel hatred of your fellow man. You shame yourself and this country with your actions.
I once believed that "McCarthyism" of 1950s was dead, that we had progressed as a people and moved beyond it. I was wrong. Fear and ignorance are
as prevalent as ever, spread much more easily through our most advanced communication mediums.
Neocons can't feel secure unless they can label someone as their enemy and hate them. They are obsessed with control and transforming the world into
a place in which everyone thinks just like them. This thread is about the "virtue" of bigotry. Only a simpleton wouldn't be able to immediately
recognize this fact.
Being different in any way from them is a crime against the state and against their God. They imagine people practicing different faiths and think of
it as nothing less than a personal attack on their faith. They see other people getting married and think that the event somehow diminishes their own
marriage. If you speak a different language, you must be doing so only to deceive them and undermine their authority. In short, the whole world
revolves around them. In their eyes, they are always under siege and as a consequence of this paranoid delusion, they move against everyone who is
different. Neocons are scum who would gladly pay $3 trillion to conquer Iraq but they'll be damned if taxpayer money goes to pay for someone's
Neocon Coward: "Is the president a communist terrorist gay Muslim? I don't know, but I'm just asking innocent questions. If no one responds to
my wild-eyed accusations, then you should assume they are true."
