Yeah, that's right. They called me a bigot! And it pissed me off. But before I flew off the handle, I looked up the word, just to be sure I was getting mad for the right reasons. You see, I don't have much practice in being a bigot. It only happens every 4th year.
According to the Oxford English Dictionary…
ˈbiɡət/ noun A person who is intolerant towards those holding different opinions
Half a mo'! Now, what does tolerant mean?
ˈtäl(ə)rənt/ adjectiave showing willingness to allow the existence of opinions or behavior that one does not necessarily agree with
Therefore, a bigot would be properly defined as “a person who is not wiling to allow others to hold different beliefs or opinions.” Something along those lines
But isn't that the very definition of a liberal? Yesterday, The Vulture printed an article quoting actor/musician, Michael Shannon, as saying, “There’s a lot of old people who need to realize they’ve had a nice life, and it’s time for them to move on because they’re the ones who go out and vote for these assholes...if you’re voting for Trump, it’s time for the urn.”
Excuse me, but who the Hell is the bigot!?! He's wishing me and you dead, folks. Our vote for Trump deserves the Death Penalty, according to Mr. Shannon. We need to start walkin' that Green Mile.
I love America as the Founding Fathers designed her more than life itself. And she's worth working, fighting and sacrificing. Here's my take on the election, President Trump and America, "a shining city on a hill."
