Intolerant Bigots?

Is the entertainment industry full of intolerant bigots? Well, that what I'm here to find out.

Now, some may be saying "Injun Chris", your racists, "how can the entertainment industry be bigoted? They love the black man and are run by Jews." Well, hold your water and I'll tell you. Firstly, I never said anything about race. Secondly, let's take a look at the words intolerant and bigot. From Merriam-Webster
Intolerant
adjective
1: unable or unwilling to endure
2: (A) unwilling to grant equal freedom of expression especially in religious matters
(B) unwilling to grant or share social, political, or professional rights

Bigot
Noun
a person obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices

Now, as a Republican you've no doubt noticed that television shows, movies and music are constantly attacking you for one reason and one reason only. You're Right-Wing. They absolutely hate you with a passion because you vote Republican. I've been compared to Hitler in movies and I've been called a lower life form in television. Intolerant. They, entertainment industry, have their pre-conceived notions of what the right-wing is you can not get them to see the truth. Bigot.

People on the Left either don't see it or are enjoying it too much to care, but if even half the stuff that is said about Conservatives in these formats were said about Blacks or women or anyone else people would be losing their minds demanding apologies and people be fired. Can you imagine if a television show said that Blacks were lower life forms? The wrath of Jackson and Sharpton would be swift. Why don't we do more to try and put and end to this? I really don't know. I guess it's because we've become so use to it we've become complacent. Every time I watch a movie or television show I actually sit and wait for the attack(s) to come.

Awesomely true post. Very well said.

BTW, I absolutely love the new format on the page.

It couldn't be that they're attacking Republicans for being bigotted?

Look at your own posts.

You've yet to posit a single reason why illegal immigrants are bad for the US - but they're evil and illegal, and should be thrown back into the pithole they came from.

Or hell, any time anybody has a connection to Iraq, there's automatically this haze of suspicion that they're evil terrorists.

Seriously, take a look at what's on TV. How many left-wing pundits do you see?
Take a single example of one of these "attacks", and I can show you a single example from your day-time television that has at least twice the vitriol in it against the supposed "left". But you don't give a damn about that, do you?

Could have something to do with the fact that you wouldn't be able to stand it if the moderates actually started talking about you far righters the same way you do about them.

CP - Thanks.

Za - You want a reason. Here's a good one. Disease. People come across the border with no medical inspection and we have no idea what they may have. Someone could cross the border with smallpox and we'd never know it. But I'm guessing that's no good enough a reason for you so dismiss it.

Who the hell's talking about pundits or news programs. I'm talking about sitcoms and dramas. If you can show me a sitcom or drama where a Democrat was called a lower life form, and not a in joking matter, I'd love to see it. I'm not a lower life form. And it's funny you think I'm a far righter. I'm more moderate than probably 90% of my readers.

Scary. Smallpox was declared eradicated in 1979, and are only kept in cultures by the CDC.

And no, I think you support the far right, while holding more centre-right values. This was borne out by the fact that when it came to you actually running your own nation, you followed VERY few of the Republican party policies. This makes dealing with you utterly ironic, since you don't bother to check your own values against either themselves or the political reality of America.

But this then boils down to the fact that you're a self-admitted hypocrite and can't be bothered to deal with it, allowing you to do whatever the hell you want.

As for sitcoms and dramas, most commonly that's because the Republican party is anti-minority groups (and don't give me the "history of the Republican party" crap again - the Republican party is anti-homosexual and has a very strong anti-non-Christian base) and sitcoms and dramas thrive on the unusual. So boo hoo.
