About Hate and Hate Groups.
email to: plusaf at plusaf dot com ; Subject="Lessons Feedback: Hate Groups"
- There is no logic or sense to hating groups, ethnic or otherwise.
- If you look closely at the kinds of people who join hate groups, they are the disenfranchised. They are the people who have been convinced, by themselves or others, that they have been dealt a lousy hand in the game of life. They blame others for their situation, take no responsibility for their situation, and take their anger out on any group they can target.
The Jews are not to blame, the Italians are not to blame, the Russians are not to blame, the government of whatever country they're complaining about is not to blame.
In most cases, their own lack of initiative is to blame. If they were to pursue education with the same zeal that they criticize their targets, they would find themselves much more powerful than by collecting guns and attacking others.
- Robert A. Heinlein put it something like this: You can't hate a group, because you can't hate a group without hating everyone in the group and you can't hate everyone in a group without knowing everyone in the group and you can't know everyone in the group.
- Sam Levinson's answer to an anti-Semite "It's a free world and you don't have to like Jews, but if you DON'T, I suggest that you boycott certain Jewish products, like .....
- The Wasserman Test for syphilis
- Digitalis, discovered by Doctor Nuslin
- Insulin, discovered by Doctor Minofsky
The discovery of insulin is credited to Dr. Banting,
who won the 1925 Nobel Prize for this discovery.
Check it out yourself and PLEASE correct this mistake on your site.
This appeared in a Dear Abby column, and that may have
helped perpetuate the story.
- Chloral Hydrate, discovered by Doctor Lifreich
- The Schick Test for Diphtheria
- Vitamins, discovered by Doctor Funk
- Streptomycin, discovered by Doctor Woronan
- The Polio Pill by Doctor Sabin
- and the Polio Vaccine by Doctor Jonas Salk.
Go on, boycott!
Humanitarian consistency requires that my people offer all these gifts to all people of the world.
Fanatic consistency requires that all bigots accept Syphilis, Diabetes, Convulsions, Malnutrition, Infantile Paralysis and Tuberculosis as a matter of principal.
You want to be mad at us? Be mad at us!
But I'm telling you, you ain't going to feel so good!"
