I think that generally agreed, though we need a study PROVING what we already know. Joel Send a noteboard - 05/02/2012 12:41:26 AM
Anyone saying something else is either just too politically correct and diplomatic or too close to their ideology.
Through my job I had my share of contact with German far-right racist party members in the last year and they are all uneducated, stupid fucks. It's the only possible explanation for the drivel they produce.

Because starting with that goal is always the best way to get a reliable study. The bigger question is whether everyone on the right is stupid, or just the bigots.

The question is dubious on its face, and one this study almost certainly lacks the means to answer (after all, even the articles title only claims "links," which means little by itself.) I guess this counts as trolling, though I did not think of it as such when posting.

Anyway, I would say the trick is not putting the cart before the horse; most ignorant bigots are conservative, but the reverse obviously does not follow from that. It is disquieting to realize conservative electoral victories rely heavily on ignorant bigots, but perhaps we can take comfort in the fact most ignorant people only THINK they know wtf they voted for in the first place (on the other hand, I think I just encapsulated the Southern Strategy (again.) ) We may be missing out on more enlightened policy, but are not automatically getting the Klan instead (made a nice totally neutral photo to lead the article though. )

Yeah, I am unsure whether to be impressed or disappointed. - 05/02/2012 02:38:05 AM 293 Views
That is a logical and reasonable assessment. - 04/02/2012 08:59:59 PM 228 Views
You think very well. - 05/02/2012 04:12:11 AM 230 Views

By referencing it… - 03/02/2012 10:50:59 PM 209 Views
That's an odd idea. - 03/02/2012 11:10:31 PM 283 Views
It was a mostly facetious comment…. - 03/02/2012 11:49:28 PM 182 Views
Clearly you endorse it. - 05/02/2012 02:23:41 AM 133 Views
Only endorsing its validity, not its soundness. *NM* - 04/02/2012 02:24:24 AM 95 Views

Still fun though - 05/02/2012 01:30:26 AM 273 Views
Well, that is the main thing. - 05/02/2012 02:25:36 AM 280 Views
Well, racists are dumb. What's to discuss? - 04/02/2012 01:23:27 AM 215 Views

Proving is something you do in maths, not science. - 05/02/2012 09:05:30 AM 173 Views
So the Moon might still be made of green cheese? - 05/02/2012 10:20:57 AM 182 Views
Yes. It is not very likely, though, since no measurement we have done so far indicates that it is so - 05/02/2012 02:28:18 PM 145 Views
Oh, let us not go THERE. - 05/02/2012 02:54:30 PM 315 Views
Bad comparison - 05/02/2012 03:36:12 PM 201 Views
Well, that last part will make sure this gets ugly.... - 04/02/2012 02:05:11 AM 202 Views
Do you not think it's true then? - 04/02/2012 07:32:13 AM 295 Views
Same here *NM* - 04/02/2012 12:13:44 PM 99 Views
Not in my experience. - 04/02/2012 04:17:01 PM 216 Views
Granted, you do move in different circles than I (or Jens, for that matter.) - 04/02/2012 10:24:52 PM 240 Views
Corfirmational bias much? - 04/02/2012 04:25:24 PM 233 Views
I did mention that I didn't care enough to look into it. - 04/02/2012 10:22:09 PM 218 Views
As a few others have noted, it is important to preserve the causality chain. - 05/02/2012 02:35:02 AM 228 Views
I dont see that it matters. - 13/02/2012 01:40:45 AM 186 Views
