#1. Jesus, in fact, was typical of a certain kind of fanatical young idealist: at one moment holding forth, with tears in his eyes, about the need for universal love; at the next, furiously denouncing the morons, crooks and bigots who did not see eye to eye with him. It is very natural and very human behaviour. But it is not superhuman. - Author: Margaret E. Knight
Bigots quotes by Margaret E. Knight
#2. It's different when people who've been living under somebody's boot hate the foot the boot's on. An oppressed people can't be racist. They can be bigots, but not racist. You have to have power to be a racist... - Author: Susan Fanetti
Bigots quotes by Susan Fanetti
#3. Prayers never bring anything ... They may bring solace to the sap, the bigot, the ignorant, the aboriginal, and the lazy - but to the enlightened it is the same as asking Santa Claus to bring you something for Xmas - Author: W.C. Fields
Bigots quotes by W.C. Fields
#4. All laws for the purpose of making man worship God, are born of the same spirit that kindled the fires of the auto da fe, and lovingly built the dungeons of the Inquisition. All laws defining and punishing blasphemy - making it a crime to give your honest ideas about the Bible, or to laugh at the ignorance of the ancient Jews, or to enjoy yourself on the Sabbath, or to give your opinion of Jehovah, were passed by impudent bigots, and should be at once repealed by honest men. An infinite God ought to be able to protect himself, without going in partnership with State Legislatures. - Author: Robert Green Ingersoll
Bigots quotes by Robert Green Ingersoll
#5. Most bigots are sincere. - Author: Ursula K. Le Guin
Bigots quotes by Ursula K. Le Guin
#6. Don't become bigoted about bigots. - Author: Scott Ross
Bigots quotes by Scott Ross
#7. People think that the South is racist, and it was, and some parts still are, but for the most part, we've dealt with our history. The biggest racists I've ever met aren't here, they're in politics, and they are smug bastards. They're the ones that are quick to play the race card, the ones that pimp poverty. Those are the real bigots. - Author: Larry Correia
Bigots quotes by Larry Correia
#8. Faith without wisdom and knowledge could produce bigots completely lacking in compassion and tolerance. - Author: Imran Khan
Bigots quotes by Imran Khan
#9. Alas! how has the social spirit of Christianity been perverted by fools at one time, and by knaves and bigots at another; by the self-tormentors of the cell, and the all-tormentors of the conclave! - Author: Charles Caleb Colton
Bigots quotes by Charles Caleb Colton
#10. If we get our very identity, our sense of worth, from our political position, then politics is not really about, it is about US. Through our cause we are getting a self, our worth. That means we MUST despise and demonize the opposition. If we get our identity from our ethnicity or socioeconomic status, then we HAVE to feel superior to those of other classes and races. If you are profoundly proud of being an open-minded, tolerant soul, you will be extremely indignant toward people you think are bigots. If you are a very moral person, you will feel superior to people you think are licentious. And so on. - Author: Timothy Keller
Bigots quotes by Timothy Keller
#11. I wonder why bigots think their conservative and puritanical version of 'God' made the male body with a prostate gland that also co-incidentally 'just happens' to be a 'g-spot'? - Author: Christina Engela
Bigots quotes by Christina Engela
#12. A religious belief ... is not a statement about Reality, but a hint, a clue about something that is a mystery, beyond the grasp of human thought. In short, a religious belief is only a finger pointing to the moon. Some religious people never get beyond the study of the finger. Others are engaged in sucking it. Others yet use the finger to gouge their eyes out. These are the bigots whom religion has made blind. Rare indeed is the religionist who is sufficiently detached from the finger to see what it is indicating - these are those who, having gone beyond belief, are taken for blasphemers. - Author: Anthony De Mello
Bigots quotes by Anthony De Mello
#13. You see, people may tell you that Nazi Germany was built on anti-Semitism, a somewhat overzealous leader and a nation of hate-fed bigots, but it would have all come to nothing had the Germans not loved one particular activity - to burn.
The Germans loved to burn things. Shops, synagogues, Reichstags, houses, personal items, slain people and, of course, books. - Author: Markus Zusak
Bigots quotes by Markus Zusak
#14. Beyond all the other reasons not to do it, free speech assaults always backfire: they transform bigots into martyrs. - Author: Glenn Greenwald
Bigots quotes by Glenn Greenwald
#15. I can use my credit card to send money to the Ku Klux Klan, to antiabortion fanatics, or to anti-homosexual bigots, but I can't use it to send money to WikiLeaks. The New York Times published the same documents. Should we tell Visa and MasterCard to stop payments to the Times? - Author: Jeff Jarvis
Bigots quotes by Jeff Jarvis
#16. This book was written by a traitor to his class. It is dedicated to bigots everywhere. Ladies and gentlemen of the black shirts, I call upon you to unite, to strike with claws and kitchen pokers, to burn the grub-worms of equality's brood with sulfur and oil, to huddle together whispering about the silverfish in your basements, to make decrees in your great solemn rotten assemblies concerning what is proper, for you have nothing to lose but your last feeble principles. - Author: William T. Vollmann
Bigots quotes by William T. Vollmann
#17. There are intelligent bigots and stupid bigots. What they all have in common is the absence of a heart. - Author: Marty Rubin
Bigots quotes by Marty Rubin
#18. The sad truth about bigotry is that most bigots either don't realize that they are bigots, or they convince themselves that their bigotry is perfectly justified. - Author: Wayne Gerard Trotman
Bigots quotes by Wayne Gerard Trotman
#19. Religious people claim that it's just the fundamentalists of each religion that cause problems. But there's got to be something wrong with the religion itself if those who strictly adhere to its most fundamental principles are violent bigots and sexists. - Author: David G. McAfee
Bigots quotes by David G. McAfee
#20. Great civilizations have annihilated themselveswhen the development of their spiritual wisdom lagged far behind their scientific technology. We need to walk softly, for though we have tread upon the surface of the moon, we have remained bigots and arrogant egotists. Walk softly, for history repeats its self with little provacation. - Author: Mary Summer Rain
Bigots quotes by Mary Summer Rain
#21. The spirit of religious totalitarianism is abroad in the world; it is in the very air we breathe today in this land. Everywhere are those who claim to have a corner on righteousness, on direct access to God ... The bigots of the world are having a heyday. - Author: Sonia Johnson
Bigots quotes by Sonia Johnson
#22. But this was Dublin, the nation's capital. The place of my birth and a city I loved at the heart of a country I loathed. A town filled with good-hearted innocents, miserable bigots, adulterous husbands, conniving churchmen, paupers who received no help from the State, and millionaires who sucked the lifeblood from it. - Author: John Boyne
Bigots quotes by John Boyne
#23. Despite a seemingly pervasive belief that only people of colour 'play the race
card', it does not take anything as dramatic as a slave revolution or Japanese
imperialism to evoke white racial anxieties, something as trivial as the casting of
non-white people in films or plays in which a character was 'supposed' to be
white will do the trick. For example, the casting of Olivier award-winning
actress Noma Dumezweni to play the role of Hermione in the debut West End
production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child got bigots so riled up that J. K.
Rowling felt the need to respond and give her blessing for a black actress to play
the role. A similar but much larger controversy occurred when the character Rue
in the film The Hunger Games was played by a black girl, Amandla Stenberg.
Even though Rue is described as having brown skin in the original novel, 'fans'

of the book were shocked and dismayed that the movie version cast a brown girl
to play the role, and a Twitter storm of abuse about the ethnic casting of the role
ensued. You have to read the responses to truly appreciate how angry and
abusive they are.- As blogger Dodai Stewart pointed out at the time:

All these . . . people . . . read The Hunger Games. Clearly, they all fell in
love with and cared about Rue. Though what they really fell in love with was
an image of Rue that they'd created in their minds. - Author: Akala
Bigots quotes by Akala
#24. I found from working on the film that I am a bigot, at times. And that I am also a coward, at times. - Author: Terrence Howard
Bigots quotes by Terrence Howard
#25. If bigots oppose gay marriage so vehemently, it must be because marriage is a defining institution for them; gays will never be fully accepted until they can marry and adopt, like anyone else. - Author: Edmund White
Bigots quotes by Edmund White
#26. I'm always told that what I say is controversial. Why is it controversial? Because I speak from a tradition that has now fallen out of favor with the dominant media in this country. And so when I say things like marriage should be between one man and one woman, I'm called a bigot. - Author: Rick Santorum
Bigots quotes by Rick Santorum
#27. It's striking how so many immigration activists don't seem to particularly like this country. They tell us that America is a teeming mass of racist, sexist, homophobic bigots. But then they insist on bringing the rest of the world to live here. - Author: Ann Coulter
Bigots quotes by Ann Coulter
#28. As a teenager, I had to struggle alone to learn about myself and what it meant to be gay. Now for [48] years I've had the satisfaction of working with other gay people all across the country to get the bigots off our backs, to oil the closet door hinges, to change prejudiced hearts and minds, and to show that gay love is good for us and for the rest of the world too. It's hard work
but it's vital, and it's gratifying, and it's often fun! - Author: Barbara Gittings
Bigots quotes by Barbara Gittings
#29. Besides, when you say you're a feminist it annoys the bigots and the old farts and the prissy ladies so much, it's kind of irresistible. - Author: Ursula K. Le Guin
Bigots quotes by Ursula K. Le Guin
#30. If today you can take a thing like evolution and make it a crime to teach it in the public school, tomorrow you can make it a crime to teach it in the private schools, and the next year you can make it a crime to teach it to the hustings or in the church. At the next session you may ban books and the newspapers. Soon you may set Catholic against Protestant and Protestant against Protestant, and try to foist your own religion upon the minds of men. If you can do one you can do the other. Ignorance and fanaticism is ever busy and needs feeding. Always it is feeding and gloating for more. Today it is the public school teachers, tomorrow the private. The next day the preachers and the lectures, the magazines, the books, the newspapers. After while, your honor, it is the setting of man against man and creed against creed until with flying banners and beating drums we are marching backward to the glorious ages of the sixteenth century when bigots lighted fagots to burn the men who dared to bring any intelligence and enlightenment and culture to the human mind. - Author: Clarence Darrow
Bigots quotes by Clarence Darrow
#31. These individuals are tyrants, and so they hate democracy. They are bigots, zealots, and persecutors, and so they hate Americas freedom tolerance, and respect for all people. The terrorists of Sept. 11 live and flourish in darkness. They cannot survive in the liberating and inspirational sunlight of American freedom and democracy. - Author: Ted Olson
Bigots quotes by Ted Olson
#32. I'd grown up fearing the lynch mobs of the Ku Klux Klan; as an adult I was starting to wonder if I'd been afraid of the wrong white people all along - where I was being pursued not by bigots in white robes, but by left-wing zealots draped in flowing sanctimony. - Author: Clarence Thomas
Bigots quotes by Clarence Thomas
#33. The criticism usually goes only to the religious right. 'Bigots,' 'intolerant,' 'hateful' - those labels get slapped on quickly and usually when we are winning debates and scoring points against liberals. - Author: Kay Coles James
Bigots quotes by Kay Coles James
#34. On some occasions the only people making accurate claims about the motivations of Islamists and jihadists are themselves dangerous bigots. That's terrifying. - Author: Sam Harris
Bigots quotes by Sam Harris
#35. produced a race of heroes, so not less surely did the growth of luxury and absolutism, assisted by the narrow-mindedness of a dynasty of bigots, lose for Portugal the lofty place which her heroes had won for her. These are things well worth pondering upon and lessons well worth learning, for the great value of the study of history is in teaching such truths as these - truths which are eternal, while nations wax and wane. The - Author: H. Morse Stephens
Bigots quotes by H. Morse Stephens
#36. The woman was sincere - bigots mostly are - but no less dangerous for that, and she shall be named and shamed. - Author: David Mitchell
Bigots quotes by David Mitchell
#37. What white middle America loathes these days are poor and poorish people, especially the kind who look and sound like they just might live in a house trailer. They will swear on a stack of Lands' End catalogs that they are not bigots, but, human nature being what it is, we are all kicking someone else's dog around, whether we admit it or not. - Author: Joe Bageant
Bigots quotes by Joe Bageant
#38. Herzen is terrified of the oppressors, but he is terrified of the liberators too. He is terrified of them because for him they are the secular heirs of the religious bigots of the ages of faith; because anybody who has a cut and dried scheme, a straitjacket which he wishes to impose on humanity as the sole possible remedy for all human ills, is ultimately bound to create a situation intolerable for free human beings, for men like himself who want to express themselves, who want to have some area in which to develop their own resources, and are prepared to respect the originality, the spontaneity, the natural impulse towards self-expression on the part of other human beings too. - Author: Isaiah Berlin
Bigots quotes by Isaiah Berlin
#39. Zach shoveled another spoonful of Fruit Loops cereal with milk into his mouth. "It is not possible!"
"How do you know? Just because there's no proof to prove it, there's no proof to disprove it either."
"You're trying to make me crazy, aren't you?"
"Not at all." Sara put her bowl down. "I'm just saying there could be bunny shifters."
"There are no bunny shifters!"
Shaking her head she accused, "You're a bunny bigot."
Zach threw his spoon back in the near-empty bowl. "And there is no such thing as bunny bigots. - Author: Shelly Laurenston
Bigots quotes by Shelly Laurenston
#40. There's disgust with what people called a broken political system, and they're really angry at elites, whether it's the Republican establishment or particularly the media who they feel look down on them, tell them they're bigots. - Author: Mara Liasson
Bigots quotes by Mara Liasson
#41. The message of 'Zomb-B' is that you have to listen to your own heart and head and question everything. Question stereotypes and the way the world seems or is being presented. Some of the people we should be most concerned about, dangerous right-wing bigots, sound convincing and reasonable. - Author: Darren Shan
Bigots quotes by Darren Shan
#42. It was so hard for Ocean to stomach that the world was filled with such awful people. I tried to tell him that the bigots and the racists had always been there, and he said he'd honestly never seen them like this, that he never thought they could be like this, and I said yes, I know. I said that's how privilege works. - Author: Tahereh Mafi
Bigots quotes by Tahereh Mafi
#43. When liberals equate criticizing Islamic doctrine with anti-Muslim bigotry, it leaves a vacuum that is too frequently filled by genuine right-wing anti-Muslim bigots who are even more disagreeable. Who gets stuck in the middle? Ex-Muslims. - Author: Ali A. Rizvi
Bigots quotes by Ali A. Rizvi
#44. For a woman to be at once a coquette and a bigot is more than the humblest of husbands can bear; she should mercifully choose between the two. - Author: Jean De La Bruyere
Bigots quotes by Jean De La Bruyere
#45. Do you remember what happened to Mexico when Cortez and his very fine good friends arrived from Spain? A whole civilization destroyed by greedy, righteous bigots. History will never forgive Cortez. - Author: Ray Bradbury
Bigots quotes by Ray Bradbury
#46. I've been trying to educate people for years and it's exhausting. I'm tired of being patient with bigots. I'm tired of trying to explain why I don't deserve to be treated like a piece of shit all the time. I'm tired of begging everyone to understand that people of color aren't all the same, that we don't all believe the same things or feel the same things or experience the world the same way.' I shook my head, hard. 'I'm just– I'm sick and tired of trying to explain to the world why racism is bad, okay? Why is that my job? - Author: Tahereh Mafi
Bigots quotes by Tahereh Mafi
#47. You think I hate men. I guess I do, although some of my best friends...I don't like this position. I mistrust generalized hatred. I feel like one of those twelfth century monks raving on about how evil women are and how they must cover themselves up completely when they go out lest they lead men into evil thoughts. The assumption that the men are the ones who matter, and that the women exist only in relation to them, is so silent and underrunning that ever we never picked it up until recently. But after all, look at what we read. I read Schopenhauer and Nietzsche and Wittgenstein and Freud and Erikson; I read de Montherlant and Joyce and Lawrence and sillier people like Miller and Mailer and Roth and Philip Wylie. I read the Bible and Greek myths and didn't question why all later redactions relegated Gaea-Tellus and Lilith to a footnote and made Saturn the creator of the world. I read or read about, without much question, the Hindus and the Jews, Pythagoras and Aristotle, Seneca, Cato, St.Paul, Luther, Sam Johnson, Rousseau, Swift...well, you understand. For years I didn't take it personally.
So now it is difficult for me to call others bigots when I am one myself. I tell people at once, to warn them, that I suffer from deformation of character. But the truth is I am sick unto death of four thousand years of males telling me how rotten my sex is. Especially it makes me sick when I look around and see such rotten men and such magnificent women, all of whom have a sneaking - Author: Marilyn French
Bigots quotes by Marilyn French
#48. The last thing in the world someone should do is respond to critics. If I did that I'd be neutered by now
I would be in the nearest insane asylum wearing 15 straitjackets. My whole career has been nothing but: You shouldn't do it that way, you bigot, you sexist, you homophobe, you pig, you right-wing warmonger, you whatever. - Author: Rush Limbaugh
Bigots quotes by Rush Limbaugh
#49. First, they came for the bigots, and I said nothing, because I didn't believe I was a bigot, then ... it was really nice, it turned out it was the bigots who'd been the main issue. We just all went out and had a lovely picnic together. - Author: Robin Ince
Bigots quotes by Robin Ince
#50. Let that which stood in front go behind, let that which was behind advance to the front, let bigots, fools, unclean persons, offer new propositions, let the old propositions be postponed. - Author: Walt Whitman
Bigots quotes by Walt Whitman
#51. Bigot: One who is obstinately and zealously attached to an opinion that you do not entertain. - Author: Ambrose Bierce
Bigots quotes by Ambrose Bierce
#52. You have deep-seated survival anxieties. And you don't like bigots, bullies, snobs or hypocrites. Subconsciously there are many people you hate."
"Consciously, sir, consciously," Yossarian corrected in an effort to help. "I hate them consciously. - Author: Joseph Heller
Bigots quotes by Joseph Heller
#53. Societies members are made up of members of society. - Author: Anthony T. Hincks
Bigots quotes by Anthony T. Hincks
#54. Bigots see something they expect and then they stop thinking about what is in front of them. It's probably how they got to be bigots in the first place. - Author: Jim Butcher
Bigots quotes by Jim Butcher
#55. Atheism is a religion itself complete with fanatics and bigots. - Author: Vanna Bonta
Bigots quotes by Vanna Bonta
#56. I assume that those who cling to old beliefs will be able to whisper their thoughts in the recesses of their homes, but if they repeat those views in public, they will risk being labeled as bigots and treated as such by governments, employers, and schools. - Author: Samuel Alito
Bigots quotes by Samuel Alito
#57. A bigot is a person who makes an idol of his commitments. - Author: Howard Thurman
Bigots quotes by Howard Thurman
#58. To deny the reported six million (approximately) Jews who died, or the 11 million people in total, is to ignore all the eyewitness accounts from Holocaust survivors, the non-Jewish witnesses of the millions who died the open-air massacres around Europe, the concentration camp guards, Nazi officers who admitted to gassings and other related crimes immediately after WW2, and the universal agreement of all mainstream historians who have studied this historical event inside out – not to mention every single scientist who has ever analyzed forensic evidence retrieved from the Nazi genocide. Not even the most corrupt courtroom on Earth could ignore this much evidence – for collectively these confirmations of the Holocaust equate to irrefutable proof that the reported death toll is indeed correct. It is possibly the most well-documented crime of the 20th Century, but remember for religious extremists, Nazi apologists or other anti-Semites it would never matter how much evidence you put in front of them. They would always deny the Holocaust because to admit the event occurred would be to stop believing the Jews are inferior to them. It would also require such bigots to admit the very uncomfortable truth to themselves: that their 'own kind' did these despicable things to the Jewish people. - Author: James Morcan
Bigots quotes by James Morcan
#59. The bigots, whether they are of the Islamist variety or the anti-Muslim variety, essentially agree on a few matters. One is their belief that Islam itself - not Islamism - is a supremacist ideology that is here to take over the world; another is that, therefore, Muslims and non-Muslims can never live equally and peacefully together, but must separate into religiously defined entities. - Author: Sam Harris
Bigots quotes by Sam Harris
#60. The term religious cleansing is an accurate and effective way of expressing the current hostility and bigotry toward all civic expressions of religion ... these religious cleansers use political and legal means of containment. They are America's new anti-faith bigots. - Author: Jay Sekulow
Bigots quotes by Jay Sekulow
#61. Pity the nation whose people are sheep,
and whose shepherds mislead them.
Pity the nation whose leaders are liars, whose sages are silenced,
and whose bigots haunt the airwaves.
Pity the nation that raises not its voice,
except to praise conquerors and acclaim the bully as hero
and aims to rule the world with force and by torture.
Pity the nation that knows no other language but its own
and no other culture but its own.
Pity the nation whose breath is money
and sleeps the sleep of the too well fed.
Pity the nation - oh, pity the people who allow their rights to erode
and their freedoms to be washed away.
My country, tears of thee, sweet land of liberty. - Author: Lawrence Ferlinghetti
Bigots quotes by Lawrence Ferlinghetti
#62. Anti-clericalism and non-belief, have their bigots just as orthodoxy does. - Author: Julien Green
Bigots quotes by Julien Green
#63. Didn't Shakespeare say something about 'every fool in error can find a passage of Scripture to back him up'? He knew his religious bigots. - Author: John Howard Griffin
Bigots quotes by John Howard Griffin
#64. The extremes to which Western elites will go to avoid blaming radical Islam for terrorism cripples our efforts to protect innocent Muslims. Terrified of offending butchers, we insist that we're the bigots, not them. We make excuses for monsters. - Author: Ralph Peters
Bigots quotes by Ralph Peters
#65. Many studies have discovered a close link between prejudice and "patriotism" ... Extreme bigots are almost always super-patriots. - Author: Gordon Allport
Bigots quotes by Gordon Allport
#66. By fools, knaves fatten; by bigots, priests are well clothed; every knave finds a gull. - Author: Johann Georg Ritter Von Zimmermann
Bigots quotes by Johann Georg Ritter Von Zimmermann
#67. She did not like bigots or brilliant bores or academicians who wore their honors, or scholars who wore their doctorates, like dogtags. But she had an infinite capacity to love peasants and children and great but simple causes across the board and a grace in giving that was itself gratitude and she had a body like sculpture in the thinnest of wire and a face made of a million mosaics in a gauze-web of cubes lighter than air and a piñata of a heart in the center of a mobile at fiesta time with bits of her soul swirling in the breeze in honor of life and love and Good Morning to you, Bon Jour, Muy Buenos, Muy Buenos! Muy Buenos!

On Nancy Cunard - Author: Langston Hughes
Bigots quotes by Langston Hughes
#68. I know a good many people, I think, who are bigots, and who know they are bigots, and are sorry for it, but they dare not be anything else. - Author: Edwin Hubbel Chapin
Bigots quotes by Edwin Hubbel Chapin
#69. Everybody knows - but no one wants to say - that the Democratic Party has become the party of special interest bigots and racial dividers. It runs the one-party state that controls public services in every major inner city, including the corrupt and failing school systems in which half the students - mainly African American and Hispanic - are denied a shot at the American dream. - Author: David Horowitz
Bigots quotes by David Horowitz
#70. There's no great, white bigot; there's just about 200 million little white bigots out there. - Author: Julianne Malveaux
Bigots quotes by Julianne Malveaux
#71. The term ignorant is indeed perhaps an overstatement, implying as it does that something is known somewhere, whereas in reality we are not even sure of this: we in fact cannot aver with any degree of certainty that we are ignorant. Yet this is not so bad; we have at any rate kept our open-mindedness
that, at least, we may be sure that we have
and are not in any danger, or so it seems, of freezing into the pious attitudes of those true spiritual bigots whose faces are turned toward eternity and who therefore can see nothing. - Author: John Ashbery
Bigots quotes by John Ashbery
#72. The Left masks its distaste for the Bible's condemnation of homosexuality in a straw man argument that Bible believers are violent bigots. They are not. Citing the Bible doesn't make you a bigot against human beings - it makes you a bigot against sin, which is a good thing. - Author: Ben Shapiro
Bigots quotes by Ben Shapiro
#73. You can be a bigot in the US, but you can't come out and openly declare your support for racial nationalism. - Author: Max Blumenthal
Bigots quotes by Max Blumenthal
#74. As Mary Grannon, the beloved Mary of The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's 'Just Mary' hour says:
So many parents are clinging to some favorite story in their own youth and measuring all children's material by it - forgetting what the last minstrel found out in his travels, that 'old times are changed, old manners gone, a stranger fills the Stuart's throne.' Let's not be like the bigots of the iron time; let's be rooters for the modern. - Author: Judith C. Waller
Bigots quotes by Judith C. Waller
#75. [I]t's not enough to be right. I think you have to be generous. It's not enough to be logical. You have to be virtuous...[Y]our demeanor will carry your message, perhaps, even further than your words will...[P]eople don't just disagree with us. Many of them genuinely think that we are evil, and when people think you're evil, I don't think they listen very carefully to your words. They search your manner. They look for the slightest excuse to ignore all your impregnable arguments, all of your carefully-marshaled facts, and that's why we must never be mean-spirited or angry or petulant, or dismissive of the interest of others. I believe rudeness and arrogance, they would drive people away, that would only confirm their own prejudices. It's the excuse they're desperate for to walk away smug and happy and say 'these people are just small-minded angry bigots.' Our opponents don't recognize our good faith, but -and this is a hard thing- I think we must try our best to recognize their good faith...You can't expect them to recognize our good intentions unless we are willing to recognize theirs. - Author: Jared Taylor
Bigots quotes by Jared Taylor
#76. Knowing that religion does not furnish grosser bigots than law, I expect little from old judges. - Author: Thomas Jefferson
Bigots quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#77. There is nothing more dangerous than a man who has nothing to gain. - Author: Non Nomen
Bigots quotes by Non Nomen
#78. How it infuriates a bigot, when he is forced to drag out his dark convictions! - Author: Logan Pearsall Smith
Bigots quotes by Logan Pearsall Smith
#79. Never forget" is the collective plea of Holocaust survivors. And in the first few decades after WW2 ended, it really did seem as if humanity would always remember, and perhaps even learn from, the Nazi genocide so that future atrocities may be prevented. Unfortunately, the historicity of the Holocaust has been undermined and chipped away at by the exact same sinister forces that created the genocide in the first place: racists, religious bigots and the most paranoid type of conspiracy theorists who, together, are uniting – often unwittingly – to form a new wave of anti-Semitism that will not willingly accept the obvious facts of the past. This chipping away (at the truth) began slowly and insidiously – much like the Holocaust itself – but sadly, and worryingly, it is gathering pace. - Author: James Morcan
Bigots quotes by James Morcan
#80. You're absolutely right: Bob Grant is a racist, Bob Grant is a bigot, he's a despicable talk show host and I agree with that. - Author: Alan Dershowitz
Bigots quotes by Alan Dershowitz
#81. The imported discovery, that human nature is too good to be made better by discipline, that children are enticed from the right way by religious instruction, and driven from it by the rod, and kept in thraldom by the conspiracy of priests and legislators, has united not a few in the noble experiment of emancipating the world by the help of an irreligious, ungoverned progeny. The indolent have rejoiced in the discovery that our fathers were fools and bigots, and have cheerfully let loose their children to help on the glorious work; while thousands of families, having heard from their teachers, or believing, in spite of them, that morality will suffice both for earth and heaven, and not doubting that morality will flourish without religion, have either not reared the family altar, or have put out the sacred fire, and laid aside together the rod and the Bible, as superfluous auxiliaries in the education of children. From the school, too, with pious regard for its sacred honors, the Bible, by some, has been withdrawn, lest, by a too familiar knowledge of its contents, children should learn to despise it; as if ignorance were the mother of devotion, and the efficacy of laws depended upon their not being understood. - Author: Lyman Beecher
Bigots quotes by Lyman Beecher
#82. Bigots are actually funny to me in the way that people who still wear parachute pants give me a chuckle. - Author: John Ridley
Bigots quotes by John Ridley
#83. Bigot: A person who wins an argument with a liberal. - Author: Rush Limbaugh
Bigots quotes by Rush Limbaugh
#84. A writer once said to me, If you ever go to America, go either to the East Coast or the West Coast: The rest is a desert full of bigots. That's what I think I'd like ... a version of pastoral. - Author: Philip Larkin
Bigots quotes by Philip Larkin
#85. Now the bigots have to get creative. Good luck coming up with slurs for Chechens. Go back where you came from, Ushanka head. - Author: Aasif Mandvi
Bigots quotes by Aasif Mandvi
#86. I am very annoyed about this issue. Why can't it be a choice? Why is that any less legitimate? It seems we're just ceding this point to bigots who are demanding it, and I don't think that they should define the terms of the debate. I also feel like people think I was walking around in a cloud and didn't realize I was gay, which I find really offensive. I find it offensive to me, but I also find it offensive to all the men I've been out with. - Author: Cynthia Nixon
Bigots quotes by Cynthia Nixon
#87. But what's braver?' Emmanuel said. 'Naming the bigots and possibly being killed for it? Or living in silence in order to protect yourself and those you love?'
I think bravery had more to do with making the choice and less to do with the choice it self. In that situation, bravery was both living and dying. - Author: Janelle Gray
Bigots quotes by Janelle Gray
#88. Literature encourages tolerance-bigots and fanatics seldom have any use for the arts, because they're so preoccupied with their beliefs and actions that they can't see them also as possibilities. - Author: Northrop Frye
Bigots quotes by Northrop Frye
#89. I couldn't join a party that, frankly, tolerates members who are bigots for one thing, homophobes, racists. - Author: Ron Reagan
Bigots quotes by Ron Reagan
#90. The doctrine which, from the very first origin of religious dissensions, has been held by bigots of all sects, when condensed into a few words and stripped of rhetorical disguise, is simply this: I am in the right, and you are in the wrong. When you are the stronger, you ought to tolerate me; for it is your duty to tolerate truth. But when I am the stronger I shall persecute you; for it is my duty to persecute error. - Author: Thomas B. Macaulay
Bigots quotes by Thomas B. Macaulay
#91. Memory is capricious. I can look back and see decadence, old bigots, the constant racial slurs, the bores, the wild cards, the bighearted, the family album of alcoholics, the saints, the old aunt propped in a chair saying only "da-da," the slow-motion suicides, but at four, six, ten, they loomed, powerful, not as types but as themselves. Among them, logic takes wing." (pg. 31) - Author: Frances Mayes
Bigots quotes by Frances Mayes
#92. Explain it to me. God says he loves me but dumps me into a world of pain. You, so full of hate, so ignorant, he leaves alone. Self-righteous bigots he doesn't even touch. Explain that to me! - Author: Greg Bear
Bigots quotes by Greg Bear
#93. Charlie Hebdo: Satire was the father of true political freedom, born in the 18th century; the scourge of bigots and tyrants. Sing its praises. - Author: Simon Schama
Bigots quotes by Simon Schama

Bigots quotes by John Wesley
#95. Read this morning of a black family - husband and wife both work in govt. printing office. They live in a nice house near U. of Maryland. They have been harassed and even had a cross burned on their lawn. It was all on the front page of the "Post." I told Mike & Jim I'd like to call on them. We cleared the last part of the afternoon schedule & Nancy & I went calling. They were a very nice couple with a 4 year old daughter - grandma (a most gracious lady) lived with them. Their home was very nice & tastefully furnished. They were very nice about our coming & expressed their thanks. The whole neighborhood was lining the street - most of them cheering and applauding us. I hope we did some good. There is no place in this land for the hate-mongers & bigots. - Author: Ronald Reagan
Bigots quotes by Ronald Reagan

Bigots quotes by DaShanne Stokes

Bigots quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#100. Weltschmerz, basically, is the depression we feel when bamboozlers, fanatics, manipulators, trolls, bigots, demagogues, fear-mongers, liars and prigs threaten to take over the world, and there's nothing, we think, we can do about it. - Author: Em L. Smith
Bigots quotes by Em L. Smith
#101. The artist must possess at least as much conviction as does his enemy, the dogmatic, mealy-mouthed, anti-art bigot. - Author: Eric Maisel
Bigots quotes by Eric Maisel
#102. I think they (Thatcher protesters) ought to be grateful for the fact that the people who hold our (pro-Thatcher) views, and who are not mindless bigots, won't allow their behaviour to provoke us into words or behaviour which would could be seen as a breach of the peace. Hopefully, those of us who admire Margaret Thatcher are too well-mannered to fall for the bait. - Author: Norman Tebbit
Bigots quotes by Norman Tebbit
#103. Talking of appearances, I would like my future readers to know that the picture of Jim and me that Thomas Hart Benton painted on the wall of the Missouri state capitol bears not the slightest resemblance to either one of us. ... I've never been satisfied with any representation of myself and have seen only one picture of Jim that did him justice. I don't know why this should be, unless it is evidence of a nearly universal prejudice against us, instigated by Sunday school superintendents, Republicans, and bigots. - Author: Norman Lock
Bigots quotes by Norman Lock
#104. Gender isn't simply some faucet that we can turn on and off in order to appease other people, whether they be heterosexist bigots or queerer-than-thou hipsters. How about this: Let's stop pretending that we have all the answers, because when it comes to gender, none of us is fucking omniscient.

Instead of trying to fictionalize gender, let's talk about the moments in life when gender feels all too real. Because gender doesn't feel like drag when you're a young trans child begging your parents not to cut your hair or not to force you to wear that dress. And gender doesn't feel like a performance when, for the first time in your life, you feel safe and empowered enough to express yourself in ways that resonate with you, rather than remaining closeted for the benefit of others. And gender doesn't feel like a construct when you finally find that special person whose body, personality, identity, and energy feels like a perfect fit with yours. Let's stop trying to deconstruct gender into nonexistence, and instead start celebrating it as inexplicable, varied, profound, and intricate. - Author: Julia Serano
Bigots quotes by Julia Serano
#105. You're trying to make me crazy, aren't you?"
"Not at all." Sara put her bowl down. "I'm just saying there could be bunny shifters."
Shaking her head she accused, "You're a bunny bigot."
Zach threw his spoon back in the near-empty bowl. "And there is no such thing as bunny bigots."
"Bunny bigot," she accused again. - Author: Shelly Laurenston
Bigots quotes by Shelly Laurenston
#106. I didn't come into politics to have to deal with the issue of clandestine entry, illegal working, or an asylum system that allows a free run for right-wing bigots. - Author: David Blunkett
Bigots quotes by David Blunkett
#107. The people I know who thought brutal thoughts and acted in brutal ways - the racists, the sexists, the bigots - never seemed to doubt themselves. They were always sure that they were right... I almost envied them the strength of their beliefs. It must have made life so much easier for them. - Author: James Marsden
Bigots quotes by James Marsden
#108. At the end of the day, the problem is education. Without an educated population, it doesn't matter what other problems you try to tackle. It's not gonna work. Think of how much less powerful campaign contributions would be if people had the critical thinking skills to see through advertising? Think of how many of our problems are based just on pure ignorance, whether it's antiscience people or bigots or whatever. - Author: Brennan Lee Mulligan
Bigots quotes by Brennan Lee Mulligan
#109. My campaign confirmed my belief that although there are bigots in America, whose hateful rhetoric seizes the media's attention, the vast majority of people do not harbor such prejudice. - Author: Edward Brooke
Bigots quotes by Edward Brooke
#110. Anti-Semitism does not signify opposition to Semitism. There is no such thing. It is an expression we Jews use effectively as a smear word used to brand as a bigot, like you guys, anyone who brings criticism against Jews. We use it against hate-mongers. - Author: Harold Wallace Rosenthal
