    Once again: NO COLLUSION

    You absolutely committed the crime in your mind. Some would say that's even worse than committing the actual crime.

    At least 138 people are dead in Sri Lanka.

    Fundamentalism and extremism are not mutually exclusive. In fact, they often go hand in hand when describing zealous fanatical behavior.

    Fundamentalists, extremists, terrorists.... My point was that Obama was reluctant refused to refer to them as Moslems at all. That was my point - not to bandy about the reference to their behavior - which, by the way, is extremist, I would imagine, even by their own definition. There is...

    Then you're a weirdo*. I've never heard any of those terms until now. The only one that doesn't sound like contrived horseshit to me is "synagogue worshipers" - in the context of "worshipers at a synagogue" All the rest don't strike my ear right. That said - In context, none of those seem...

    Easter Worshippers is not only silly - it's inaccurate. I don't know anyone who worships Easter. Easter is simply a celebration of an event centered around Christ - the real focus of worship. Would anyone call a Jew a "Yom Kippur Worshiper" or a Muslim a "Ramadan Worshiper"? Now, while I'm...

    Melania says she'll serve four more years

    Oh boy! A semantic debate! Based on a word used by a person for whom English is not the first language. Yay! Covfefe: GO!

    Liar, character assassin, bigot – Pete Buttigieg is a natural leader for the Democrats.

    Because the concept exists. It comes up in conversations - terms are very handy in conversing about concepts. I actually see the need for the term "hate crime". You committed a crime because you hate someone. Whether you think they're an *******, or because you don't like their skin tone...

    Liar, character assassin, bigot – Pete Buttigieg is a natural leader for the Democrats.

    I didn't suggest you did. Find a different word for the concept, then.

    Liar, character assassin, bigot – Pete Buttigieg is a natural leader for the Democrats.

    Well, if we're going to get into a dumbass semantic debate, let's bandy all the words about. And why is it unfair? It refers to the prejudicial and unequal treatment of a targeted group based on a quality that's different from the norm.... Give me another word. I'm all ears! So... I entered...

    Liar, character assassin, bigot – Pete Buttigieg is a natural leader for the Democrats.

    I get that. And I agree with it. Back when this "Politically Correct" movement really began to pick up steam back in the 90's that was the analogue I drew, and nothing since has changed my mind. Even the term "Politically Correct" is infused with a subjective opinion that subconsciously points...

    Liar, character assassin, bigot – Pete Buttigieg is a natural leader for the Democrats.

    Well, that is certainly double-plus ungood. But like it or not, that's the word we're currently stuck with. That or bigot - but bigot is too generic. Like I said, come up with another one. Maybe it'll go viral and catch-on. Homophobe had to start somewhere. How about "Nolikeythegay"?

    Southern Maryland Drivers, making crap up

    I hate driving in Calvert County. For a road as unbusy as 2&4 is for the most part, it seems to be completely filled with rock-headed imbeciles who shouldn't have access to a big-wheels let alone a 2000 pound piece of metal to hurl through world space at 60+ MPH

    Liar, character assassin, bigot – Pete Buttigieg is a natural leader for the Democrats.

    Semantics. Don't like the word homophobe? Islamophobe? Phobophobe… find another, more accurate, term. Wonderful thing about the English language - it's alive and evolving. Currently, the word means what it means. I'm not about to debate that homophobe means something else because you don't...

    Liar, character assassin, bigot – Pete Buttigieg is a natural leader for the Democrats.

    Actually, that's kind of the definition of a homophobe. Although the dictionary is probably less graphic and doesn't mention the poking of anuses (ani?)
