I was thinking about this last night... the thing is, and I'll probably take a hammering for this, but for me, it's not about "bigotry" in the definitive sense... it's ignorance... most of the states where Trump has the most supporters have really been fucked over the past 10/20 years... but they are also largely the more socially depressed/isolated areas... there's plenty of minorities, but there's also a huge, poor working class, high school at best educated, never been outside of America population... a huge percentage of these people, and I know a bit of what I'm talking about, because large parts of Canada is just the same, they don't actually have a simply "racist" issue with minorities, but they've been conned into thinking minorities are the problem... and they don't have the education, outside of their own little world exposure, to know that that's bollocks... take any community, and cut them off, and you can feed them any load of crap you want, and given time, they'll believe it... look at North Korea for example... those poor saps actually believe the shit their leaders tell them because they don't know any better...

The American media is just as insidious as any in the world for manipulating its population, but incredibly, and to their evil credit, they've done it while at the same time, convincing those same people that they're the most honest, open minded news force available... just try and tell a typical redneck, he doesn't know what the fuck he's talking about... if he doesn't just take a swing at you first, he'll go off on one, and give you a million and one reasons why he lives in the best country in the world, with the most freedom, and the easiest going, most generous people, who singlehandedly prop up the worlds democracy, carrying the fight alone and unafraid against all things evil... including racism...

But of course, there are also plenty of outright, die hard, racist fucks... but they're everywhere, with or without, the Trumps of the world...

Exactly my point, North Korea Alf, fuck sake Northern Ireland!!

If you interview enough people in really hardline areas, one side or the other, you are guaranteed to get two sound bites 1. Why don't they just walk down there own roads 2. If they don't like it here why don't they all go and live in Dublin.

Guarantee you, because that's how they've been raised and they've no interest in changing their views, it's like Americans not leaving America as Alf says only they all go to Majorca for a fortnight.
Well I suppose that's the knighthood fucked.

They really need to start a war quickly, a new special relationship.

So someone tried to kill a bunch of Reps at a baseball practice with an automatic rifle. He hit 4 or 5 and was shot dead. Fox are saying the guy was a liberal 1% protester, they have a picture of him holding up a placard.
