RE: MBZER benzworlds anti-semite

Now come on! "SAN FRANCISCO...An Island of sanity...in a sea of stupidity !!" is clearly intended to be amusing, and in some regards there may well be some truth to it!

The joke is that most of the nation regards SF as an island of insanity, right?

Anyway, I guess you can call MBZER an SF-Chauvinist if you really want to. Since SF is notorious for its tolerance, it does set up an interesting formulation...

It's interesting that the swastika wasn't always a symbol of intolerance. It used to be regarded as a symbol for luck and good fortune.

Freude am fahren!

I guess you don't have to have a group/country/nation/affiliation of others similar to you to be considered an asshat. I associate anti-semitism with the "White power" scene, I can only assume this for now.

RE: MBZER benzworlds anti-semite

Now, "asshat" is another matter entirely.

Meanwhile, IIRC MBZER was taken to task for excoriating Ariel Sharon, which hardly constitutes anti-semitism, chauvinism, tribalism, or any of the above.

Everything else as I said is an assumption.

"sea of stupidity" = The rest of America

So how I see it is he is very proud of his area, but critical towards other Americans.
