LL316: Without question, the most racist people I know voted Democrat. "I can say (n bomb (ending in er, not a)) since I voted for one" was repeatedly said in the days and weeks after the 1st election. Bigots know no sex, age, race, sexual preference, or social/economic backgrounds. /And this was mainly in Royal Oak, MI. A slightly less gay/liberal version of San Fran.

Totally plausible!

I can't leave the house without some hipster white Democrat saying "n-word, get me a latte" and "nice fixie, n-word!".

Thank goodness Fox News and the Republican party are here, to tell us who to be afraid of. Otherwise, we'd be getting into cabs with Muslim drivers and arriving safely at our destination with no incident.

Don't like Muslims or people of any religion from North Africa/Middle East/Indian region? Paranoid and stupid? Don't take a cab!

I hope the next time she gets a cab it's driven by a 90 year old legally blind drunk senile Irishman with one leg.

ciberido: offmymeds: In the most recent case, an Ashburn, Va., woman unleashed a string of expletives and called 911 to report that she was afraid for her life because she said her cabbie, Abdikar Aden of Alexandria, was "very Muslim."

So let me see if I understand this correctly. There's "Muslim", "sort-of Muslim", "pretty Muslim", "very Muslim" and finally "really Muslim" (?).

My Muslim goes to 11.

Why not just make 10...more Muslim?

atomicmask: That is why the muslim brotherhood continue to get elected in most every "arab spring" state in the middle east...its because the majority are NOT voting for sharia law enforcing asshats and they get the office anyway right?

And because 100% of American presidents have been (nominally) Christians, all but one has been white (cue "43.5 presidents have been white" joke), and all of them have favored free-market systems, that means 100% of Americans are Christian, 98% of us are white, and we're all capitalists.

That about right?

Trance354: vernonFL: JesusJuice: This woman is an insane coont, but Muslims brought this on themselves.

If they stop oppressing women, raping children, and murdering everyone, people might have a better image of their faith.


That's a little high, more like 0.5/10.  Half a point due to getting their current iteration of the religion correct.  What most people don't even bother to learn is that during the dark and middle ages, when christian Europe was dancing around with swords and killing mass quantities of the populace, the muslim nations were the largest centers of learning on the planet.  Their literacy rates were astounding for the time.  Even the European nobility was rarely literate on a functional level.  Granted, both sides had their unwashed masses, and women on both sides were little more than property, but given that, the advances in the sciences and math were astounding.

I took a cab into DC.  The cabby was from Pakistan.  I was drunk.  He gave me a free pouch of crazy pakistan dip/ chewing tobacco he kept in his glove box.  I ended up accidentally throwing it up/ spitting it out on the WW2 Memorial in front of a lot of people who were horrified by my disrespect.  It was nice of him.  I have trouble not throwing up Skoal.

fappomatic: We can thank the media for doing an outstanding job of sensationalism, for so long, that hatred/mistrust of Muslims is nearly an innate reaction. Somewhat like the white vs. black mentality of the 60's.

Thanks alot douchenozzles.

\I can see this happening and I'm a got dam conservative protestant. WTF?

The TV tells people that "blacks are lazy"; so stupid self-righteous people with no accomplishments to pride themselves on tell themselves they are better than "the lazy blacks".  Same goes for "all Muslims are terrorists".

 If the media wanted people to hate Catholics again, how long do you think it would take?

They'd latch onto anything. They're stupid.  Actually, stupid doesn't cover it.  They're shiat-eating morons.  They lack any sense of self-worth, and usually rightfully so.  You'll see some of them here shortly.

Long way.

Tyson's corner to Ashburn is 20+ minutes, even at highway speeds.

Part of the charge was because they had him wait 45 minutes before they got in the cab.

Bottom line: woman was skunk drunk and needs a good coont poont.
