Can any member of the rabid right-libertarian front justify this statement?

You need to look up the words you use beforehand.

bigot: "–noun a person who is utterly intolerant of any differing creed, belief, or opinion."

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/bigot

You clearly are bigotted against those who think differently than you.
I could say the same about you.

bigot
One entry found for bigot.
Main Entry: big•ot
Pronunciation: 'bi-g&t
Function: noun
Etymology: French, hypocrite, bigot
: a person obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices; especially : one who regards or treats the members of a group (as a racial or ethnic group) with hatred and intolerance

As far as being prejudiced against people because of their race goes, I am not a bigot.

Hey Everyone!

Just wanted to say that I can be a BIGOT about a lot of things!!! Thanks for the definition Gunny.

I'm totally intolerant of:

child porn; physical, sexual and verbal abuse; legalizing illegal drugs; gangs; spam; telemarketing; satanism; using foul language in public; deserters; just about every opinion expressed by the far left wing radical progressive liberals; and too many other subjects to ever be listed here.

My point is that I don't believe there is an individual alive that doesn't have some bigotry in them.

Being a bigot does not equal being a racist.
Lessee, I'm intolerant of child porn too as well as abuse, gangs, spam, telemarketing, and a couple of opinions espoused by the right (and left. I'm an equal opportunity bigot), but I"m also intolerant of anti-legalization of marijuana, anti-free speech (includes swearing in public, but I think that people shouldn't swear around children), and I think that'll do it.

Now do I look silly too? :)

that wasn't an answer.... it was a series of wise ass, biased, bigoted, racists rants at gunny
Read it again. My answer to you is at the end of my post.

oh and black bigotry is sanctioned by law it is called quotas
I have said before that we still have a long way to go. A few quotas are far better than a plethora of Jim Crow laws.

If you are a racist, how can you not also be a bigot? Now give me examples of what you take as my bigotry.

If you support laws that mandate that people be separated one from another because of their race (something you seem to be in favor of), are you not a racist and thus a bigot?
Did you miss the dictionary.com definition I provided for you?

I have given you example of your bigotry. You are completely intolerant to opposing points of view. That pretty-much IS the dictionary definition of "bigot."

I also pointed out that one cannot be a racist without being a bigot, but one CAN be a bigot without being a racist. For someone who thinks they are so smart, you sure are making the simplicity here hard.

I have not once stated that I support laws mandating separation, and in fact do not. That is just more of your closed-minded presumptuousness.

The difference between you and I is I know I am bigotted to a certain degree, about certain things, how much so depending on the topic. What I am NOT is a racist. Not in any sense of the word.

By your last sentence I see you are going to persist in misusing a word with a clear definition.

And yes, you ARE a racist. You are bigotted against the white race. You are quick to label the whites (as you have done me) "racist" when they don't agree with unfair treatment, appeasement, and/or feeling we should apologize or feel guilty for an institution that was abolished 140-something years ago, or for racial discrimination that occurred when most of us were children or not even born at all (the latter would include you).

The law is equal and fair as far as this topic goes, and has been for 40 years. You're fighting windmills now.

As far as changing the hearts and minds of people goes, I can guarantee you one thing .... you won't change intolerance by offering intolerance in return.

Bullshit argument based on arbitrary parameters set by you. There isn't a choice out there "Jim Crow laws or quotas." Doing away with racial quotas will not automatically put Jim Crow laws into play.

Quotas based on race are wrong. We lost some damned-good officers in the Marine Corps and got instead shitty ones with one talent ... playing the race card. Furthermore, quotas based on race are a violation of the US Constitution which promises equality to ALL.

I'll say the same thing about race as I have gender ... I don't give a damned WHO you are ... if you can't hump ammo you're equally useless to me. And the last thing I need is some "quota" without a clue getting my Marines killed.

In case you missed it, my answer was included in my next to last post to GL: It is no longer acceptable to be a bigot in public or to think you are entitled to have your bigotry sanctioned by law.
Is it safe then to assume that you think affirmative action should be abolished as it is "bigotry sanctioned by law?"
