“Bigotry: 1. Stubborn and complete intolerance of any creed, belief, or opinion that differs from one’s own. 2. The actions, beliefs, prejudices, etc., of a bigot.”
That’s according to dictionary.com, though it might have added a third definition: The Democrat Party and general liberal credo. Incidentally, that meaning also works for the word “Hypocrite.”
And both terms come solidly into play in the larger party’s recent (and not-so-recent) behavior…
During live coverage of the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida on Monday night, Yahoo! News’s Washington Bureau Chief David Chalian accidentally broadcasted his personal views of the people he was supposedly objectively covering.
“They aren’t concerned at all,” he complained without hitting the proper buttons to mute himself. “They are happy to have a party with black people drowning.”
Chalian has since been fired for his incompetence (though doubtlessly not his bigoted opinion, which the mainstream media – Yahoo! included – widely holds).
Meanwhile, one of his own party members took to the equally liberal Wikipedia to opine against Mia Love, a conservative, first generation American whose parents emigrated from Haiti.
She also just so happens to be black.
Currently, Mia Love is the mayor of Saratoga Springs, Utah, and is running against Democrat Jim Matheson to serve as United States Representative for Utah’s fourth congressional district. An up-and-comer with a powerful message, she spoke at the RNC to much applause and admiration.
That is to say that those racist Republicans who are so “happy to have a party with black people drowning” took to her and her speech enthusiastically. Democrats on the other hand might not have been so happy, judging by her edited Wikipedia entry, which in part read:
“So, in other words, she is a total sell-out to the Right Wing Hate Machine and the greedy bigots who control the GOP ad love to see people like Mia Love be exploited like the House N*gg*r she truly is.”
Other sections referenced her as an “Aunt Tom” and a “dirty, worthless whore.”
And this from somebody who belongs to a party that loves minorities and women? Then why is it that when minorities and women don’t subjugate themselves to Democrat standards, they’re instantly deemed unauthentic and slapped with vile slurs regarding their race and/or gender?
