If all opinions are equal, how come a liberal who disagrees with a conservative is open-minded, but a conservative who disagrees with a liberal is a bigot?


Are you purposely trying to look like an idiot?

Who says that? That's a bullshit comment. Stop drinking the kool-aid.


Actually, sometimes we're called racists.  A lot of that was going on while obummer was POTUS.  If we didn't like what he did, some people on the left called us racists.  If we disagreed with a female dem politician we were women haters.  Disagree with Black Lives Matter and all heck broke loose.

Some dems don't have political reasons when they disagree with reps, so they go for the name-calling.

No, that's bullshit. Minorities both sides engage in name-calling and those small few don't represent the majority. What is funny is people like robth engaging in the EXACT behavior he is criticizing with this post. Indeed, you are engaging in that behavior now, painting a group generally by using the actions of a very small minority. Look at the frequent posts by stu and Wally. Should that hatred be used to paint the entire conservative movement? Of course not.

How do you characterize a "very small minority".  Just look at the college campus crowd. If they disagree with a speaker they hurl all kinds of insults, chairs, fire bombs, etc. 

Another example is most of the liberals on this very forum. I've already been called an idiot and Kool-Aid drinker by some of the precious open minded liberals for daring to post one opinion.

If—

BY RUDYARD KIPLING

If you can keep your head when all about you   
    Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,   
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
    But make allowance for their doubting too;   
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
    Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
    And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;   
    If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;   
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
    And treat those two impostors just the same;   
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
    Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
    And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
    And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
    And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
    To serve your turn long after they are gone,   
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
    Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,   
    Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
    If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
    With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,   
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,   
    And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!
  

" The few will always act like the few.

Machiavelli

I called you an idiot, it's an accurate description based on your initial question.  I am not a liberal, far from it.  You automatically assume that because I called you an idiot that makes me liberal.  The reality of the situation is that your question was idiotic and you are unwilling to accept this basic fact.
