"bigot shaming"

I managed to catch a little of Thom's show today (June 1), and he mentioned "publically shaming the bigots" when talking about anti-Muslim discrimination.

I'm sure Thom has noticed that bigots don't really care how their opinions are viewed by anyone else. If you were to ask them, they would probably think that they are not being "bigots", but rather just being "honest". Or, that "bigot" doesn't necessarily carry a negotive connotation.

Now, if you can forgive or overlook this maybe you can also overlook Hillary’s vote for the Iraq war. Yes? Or is there an alternative or two:

I've Got a Right...

Here you go, all you adamant “Freedom of Speech Whatever the Cost” advocates. Fallout from Hebdo and the “Paris Massacre.” It may be just beginning. Even here on TH you can read comments such as “these people”, “them” and “they.” There was even a post recently right here on TH supporting Pamela Geller. This is how it starts. It can easily become nasty – and bloody. For the moment, and we should be grateful, there’s calm in Phoenix.
