Why do you use such strong words as hate and detest? Do you really feel this opressed?
Where did the misspelled word opressed come from?? This is what you call derailing. If you don't harbor any hate towards any of those groups, why would you even bother responding?

By the way, half of the people responding so far agree that you can hate or despise half of your nation and still be patriotic. Do you agree with them?
Your use of the word HATE is the problem not agree with does not equal hate but that is how you started this thread. Hate is your word so heck with your poll take the hate out and try again

The poll was about self describe patriots who hate a significant portion of Americans. Patriots who have no hate aren't mentioned in the poll and are not the issue in this poll.

You can't answer my question, which is completely valid, yet you choose to play grammar police and criticize someone that is replying to your ignorant thread. The only one derailing anything is you on your own thread.

Just accept the fact that your thread is a complete fail and move on. It is not hard to do.

Not quite, just an attempt to stop you from derailing the topic at hand. This isn't about oppression, nice try at strawman. Feel free to create another thread about perceived oppression, but I'm not falling for it.

Wow! It was a trick question.
Damn, you're sooo clever.
You got us again.

Yuppers. You missed a spot- they hate 'disobedient' women who fail to worship them too.

You rang a dinner bell and the piggies came here to defend racism. They deflect attention from themselves and call you a 'troll trouble maker'. Taking a picture of a thing means you created it?

I didn't miss your point. Appears these <alleged> conservatives have no identity at all if they fail to have someone or something to hate on. Pathetic, really. Hope you can readily identify it from all extreme 'sides' though. America has more than it's fair share of village idiots in a stunning array of race, creed, gender, etc etc.
