Xenophobia is one of the highest forms of ignorance, not to mention one of the most dangerous. We have only to look at the example of the Nazi
occupation of Europe to see why this sort of intolerance cannot be allowed to go unchecked. It does not matter whether the xenophobia is based on
religious, political, or skin colour differences, the fact is that hatred of this type is cancerous. It brings entire continents to their knees, and
the end result of this sort of hatred being allowed to run amok is death on a massive scale, the crushing of liberty and freedom, and total
This cannot possibly stand.
Also, on the particular point of the comments made about the winner of Miss America 2013, one commenter is reported to have said something like
"When are we going to have a real American win this contest?", or something of that sort...
Not only has the dull eyed, half witted, barely sentient mess who posted that question forgotten geopolitical history well enough that they feel safe
in their unreasoning hatred of other colours, creeds, and faiths, but they have also forgotten the history of the Miss America competition. In a
history dating back more than ninety years, it is only in the last forty three years that non-white contestants were even allowed, because back in the
day the idiots ruled the roost in terms of writing the competitions terms and conditions. At one point there was even a complicated form which was
designed to trace the ancestry of the participants (which for a nation chock full of immigrants is perhaps the most retarded thing I ever heard of).
Where the population of the USA is concerned, only a very tiny percentage ought to be allowed to claim ANY chagrin at the state of immigration these
days, and those would be the people who are directly descended from native tribes, and even these people are likely to be aware that their ancestors
arrived in North America after being else where. The whole question of what constitutes being American is perhaps the most ridiculous I have ever
heard of. In the most positive way possible, America is a mixture and has been since it was first settled by anyone, let alone the European immigrants
that are famed for their voyage across the sea from Europe ! America, the bastard, should be proud of its hybrid culture, because its all it has ever
had! The upholding of the Anglo Saxon ideal is ridiculous no matter where it is found, but PARTICULARLY in a nation whose long dead founders and
settlers were nothing of the sort themselves !
