Bigotry hidden behind Atheism is still Bigotry. Sam Harris actually crosses the line quite often in this regard. In the USA (and most of Europe as well) Muslims are a persecuted minority not some massive cabal wielding immense political power, that would be the white Christians.

Just because every now and again, some Sikh gets his ass beat and his temple burned because he looked all muslimy, don't mean nothin'.

Again, it is not based on looks. I don't care if your women are the nastiest pieces of ass to look at. The fact that you can't see their face, hair, or any other distinguishing features makes the individuals impossible to pick out in a crowd. Why do you think Antifa, a group that regularly riots wears masks? Same idea, except there aren't even different color or style clothes to pick out. Just a person completed shrouded in cloth. This as far as I see it only about security. They had tried to get all the fast food chains to serve nothing but Halal meats and failed. Now as far as I know none of them even offer it anymore, due to being sued one too many times over it.

Why do you suppose that is? It couldn't be because that's how you come off in post after post after post, could it?

If it walks like a duck and it talks like a duck....

Again, you can't be racist toward a religion. It doesn't matter how many times you say I can.

Yabut, that doesn't mean you're not a racist. You're still a racist. There's no reason you can't be against a particular religion and still be a racist. I mean you're proof of that.

Let's just change 'racist' for bigot. It really describes you better anyway. Then you can be the equal opportunity hater you are.

I don't think we need to change 'racist'. He's both a racist and a bigot.

Of course he is. But I don't want to play semantics with the birdbrain.

The definition for racist seems to be more narrowly based on race. Bigot, on the other hand, encompasses many of his reasons for hating people, including race.

Naw, I think that's just being a misanthrope.

Birdbrain has specific reasons for his hatred of each group and subgroup he has listed during his stay here...that's bigoted.

Mainly (according to him) they do illegal stuff that he'd love to get away with but can't because he'll get caught. Or they get welfare and he feels cheated because he pays taxes, he wishes he could go on welfare and live like a king (as he thinks people on welfare do). At the same time he's not above a little illicit stuff on the side himself if I recall correctly. Something about selling a trailer to some Mexican (whom he hates) and fiddling the deal to avoid those taxes he hates paying.

No, but it's rather arrogant, because "in general" usually doesn't include oneself. No, oneself is usually way better than those unwashed plebeian nasssssty masses Drinking Beverage
