That guy was seriously considered to run the Veteran's Administration, which is a large health care provider.

This parody of reality really is getting to be a bit too broad.

It's too bad that idiocy is overshadowing the real money quote, "I've heard of the morning-after pill ... it gives ample time in those eight weeks to make those exclusions," so let's not forget this guy is on the record as being in favor of emergency contraception.

He also doesn't seem to make the connection that "morning-after" implies you can't use it just at any time up to eight weeks.

Hey look a quick, easy and true analysis of why many conservatives/libertarians are assholes,
Quote:
“If you knew someone else at work was in the exact situation that you’re in, and you weren’t in this situation, would you feel like you had to do something about it? Someone you don’t really know on a personal level, but whose situation you knew all the details of?”

Her answer was “No, because it wouldn’t directly affect me.”
Quote:
t’s not a sense of morality that’s driving her. It was my mistake to think that it was. And, honestly, it was my mistake to think that it was a sense of morality that was driving me. The reality is that what we feel most deeply emotionally entangled with is what drives us to act. I feel entangled with the suffering of other people, often more than my own suffering. She feels entangled in the emotional suffering she thinks she’ll experience if she rejects what the propaganda machines are constantly drilling into her, and she doesn’t feel entangled with the suffering of other people.
A close family member votes Republican. Now I understand why. The core isn't bigotry. It's worse.

This is amusing as I know exactly what he means, a friends parent in high school would call computers from the devil right up till her son got better grades using one then boom computers were amazing. So many people are up their own asses and can’t understand carring about others if it doesnt benefit them. I have some hypothesis as to why they ended up that way and only care about themselves.

Maybe one of the many think pieces will finally figure out some people are just angry self centered hatefilled assholes who think they better take advantage of you before you enevitably take advantage of them. God it must suck to live in that world.

Eta: what he said about bigotry is important but it often comes down to people wanting to avoid feeling bad. Being called a bigot feels bad cause it’s become a bad name to call someone and Im not bad they think to themselves (even the author couldnt fully admit he was bad) so people redefine ‘bigot’ as something a bit worse than whatever they said. I see this a lot with racism. ‘Blacks are violent thug animals... but I dont want to lynch them so Im not a racist’. The idea that saying blacks are inherently more violent is seen as a neutral fact and not racism.

I see and hear an awful lot of that. And that's just it; someone can spend hours ranting about how "blacks" are stupid, lazy, violent, untrustworthy, and sex-crazed; how "queers" are trying to seduce and corrupt our children, and destroy "traditional marriage"; how women are inherently less intelligent and less rational than men -- and then act as if they're genuinely shocked and appalled if you call such behavior racist, homophobic, or sexist. And the thing is, they probably sincerely believe that they aren't being racist, homophobic, misogynistic, or otherwise bigoted when they say such things. In their minds, they're simply being "honest."


One should never underestimate the human capacity to believe that what we want to be true is true.

Another good example is how a huge percentage of [White] Southerners (and to be fair, Whites in much of the rest of the country) are absolutely convinced that slavery was a.) an almost entirely benign institution, and b.) that it had nothing to do with the U.S. Civil War.

I don't know how many times I've had even intelligent, well-educated people insist to me that slavery was a benign institution, that slaves were far better off here than they'd have been if they'd "stayed in Africa" (as if they'd been given a choice), and that the modern-day descendants of slaves should be grateful that their ancestors were brought to this country.

Similarly, it's taken as an article of faith by a huge number of people that slavery had little or nothing to do with the American Civil War. It doesn't matter that it's trivially simple to prove that this is not true, nor that there are plenty of contemporary documents which forthrightly state that the "slavery issue" was one of the principle reasons for the Southern States' secession from the Union. As far as the faithful are concerned, slavery had little or nothing to do with the Civil War, and nothing will convince them otherwise.


People don't want to believe their ancestors did bad things, thus they convince themselves that slavery was a benign institution and that it had nothing to do with the War of Northern Aggression Civil War.

Similarly, people don't want to believe that they are bigots, so they convince themselves that when they do and say racist, sexist, homophobic, etc. things -- they're just being honest, not bigoted.


***


Yes, a lot of bigotry comes from people who sincerely believe that they're simply being honest, not bigoted.

On the other hand, there are some who are perfectly aware that they're saying vile things -- and they don't care. I see an awful lot of that sort of thing on Facebook and other such sites. There are a substantial number of people who will say all sorts of vile, reprehensible things -- like calling for the execution of homosexuals, for example, or the imprisonment of all "Liberals" -- and then, if called on it, will say something along the lines of "See? That's the problem with you Libs; you can't take a joke!".

I don't think they're joking at all; I suspect that they're just trying to keep from being banned by pretending that they're only joking. Oh, sure, if push came to shove, they might not want to go quite so far as to round up and execute all homosexuals or imprison all Liberals -- but they're fantasizing about it, and they find the idea appealing.
