...because the stoopid has been really thick lately!
Everyone in professional media seems not to have gotten the right kind or amount of attention during their formative years, because the clamor to get their fifteen minutes of fame has become deafening in these our times. Of course, an awful lot of amateurs are even worse.
Ladies and gentlemen, ANYONE can be (and almost everyone probably is) a racist, sexist, agist, religion-ist -- you name it. This just means that one makes a series of presumptions about people based on nothing but one's perception of what they MAY be like, because of the demographic to which they belong. Things like individual bearing and mien, how people dress and speak, influence us as well. This is deeply ingrained -- instinctive. It's adaptive and protective ... and often counter-productive.
What gets nasty is when unevolved people act on their instincts. When people with an axe to grind buy the airwaves and serve up the hate and fear in supersize portions. When selfish fucktards aren't knocked back into the primordial ooze in which they belong, because other selfish fucktards have seized power which they're not qualified to wield -- because when you live in a SOCIETY you have an obligation to behave in a SOCIAL manner. Breakers of the social contract should not be allowed to benefit from it.
Way too many people are ANTI-SOCIAL in every definition of the word. It's disgusting. GROW UP.
