Laid bare? I've been making wild ethnic stereotypical comments for years. I've never hidden my ethnophilia. But I'm not racist because I don't have any power to institutionally discriminate against Anglos. And I'm not sure Anglos are a race anyway.
Originally posted by @athousandyoung German is from Germany. Germanic is different. Norse, Swedes, Danes etc are Germanic.
Ethnicity is a function of culture so what you are saying is nonsensical.
After wasting some time on google I will concede that some definitions of
ethnicity include culture. I fioound one site including cuisine as part of ethnicity.
I have never really come across anyone using it in that manner. I will avoid
the word in future as it has too many connotations.

How does that sit with Trump's moderate supporters?
I didn't know he had any moderate supporters. I thought they were all bat-guano crazy. My bad.

No, you're right.
Only in America can an entire group of uneducated, low-income Americans be confused enough to believe that Trump even cares one iota about them. OR even that the Republican Party does. This is what years and years of right-wing talk radio has brought about in this country. Left-wing talk radio keeps trying to compete, but just this year, the last left-leaning AM station in Phoenix went off the air. Support for the left does not exist here as far as my AM radio can reach. All I get are right-wing stations. The left is losing to the right because they're just not hitting them where they live.
Originally posted by @athousandyoung No it's obviously a reference to Shub-Niggurath, the Black Goat of the Woods With a Thousand Young, a fictional deity-monster created by H.P. Lovecraft in his fictional cosmic horror stories.
I'm not accusing you of hanging out with a pack of wolves. Poor analogy.
Hmmm, maybe I was wrong and I AM the only one who gets your screen name. But yeah, I'm kind of a geek.
