I know these people around here don't even hide their hate. They wear it like a badge of honor. Makes me sick to my stomach being a minority. I know there aren't many of us here but I can't imagine you people treating us worse because of this post. I am an minority and I am discriminated against a lot here. I know they are all republicans too.

What a load of crap. I am conservative and Republican. I have minority frends. I judge people by how they are not who they are and am fairly well educated. I hear twice as many Democrats around here using the N word and being racist.

Why do you feel the need to clarify that you have "minority frends"? First, you can still be prejudiced against a group of people and have "frends" that are from that group. For example, I think all republicans are racist blowhards who are too busy making up bullshit facts to read actual research on the subject. But I have republican "frends".

Try focusing on the content of the posts and less on those commenting. If the only thing you can glean from these posts is that they all are located in fairmont then you must be one of these republicans. I have Comcast internet. I assume that most people using them come up Fairmont. I mean this is what makes me sick. You make claims based on faulty information. I'm glad you are trying to use your brain, but please try harder.

I can't believe I found such a post on the Mannington forum. I always thought Republicans were kind of stupid, and now we know.

Do not even try to reason with the red necks on the left. They want to call Republicans racist, yet their hero is Robert Byrd, a known KKK member. These people are basically ignorant, not well educated, and lacking in morals. They do not believe in hard work or personal responsibility. They want to prostitute their freedom for free stuff. They talk about Republican hate, but look at their postings on the various blogs. I would say that their is plenty of hate coming from both parties.

We can safely assume that you are one of those republicans. I am a liberal. I am educated. I have strong moral convictions. I work 40 hours a week in an office. I don't want anything for free. I want my tax dollars spent in a way that benefits society instead of destroying it. You have an idea in your head of liberals. You couldn't be more wrong. Try talking to people instead of living in la-la-land.

I do have to wonder about some of the Republicans I've met. One man told me his wife had a vasectomy, another told mr the reason Lot's wife turned into a pillar of salt was because she turned and looked at her behind. another said his son was talking at 3 months and was potty trained at 4 months, another swore a person that had raised an unbrella in her house had killed her brother. I wanted to laugh so hard right in their face, but I held it until I got home, then I rolled in the floor laughing.

In 1973 I got lost at Fairmont, West Virginia and was forced to mine coal and do homosexual acts. I escaped eventually by making an ultra light plane out of tarps and fishing rods and an outboard motor.

Yea, that's not a prejudice statement. Way to disprove the study, chief. BTW that was the lamest attempt at an insult I have ever seen.
