Mikhail Bakharev, Editor of Crimea Pravda, on Ukraine and/or Ukrainians

I can't stand their language

Their country is hell

They are Nazis and bandits

Their fathers and grandfathers fought our fathers and grandfathers

Longtime editor of Crimean Pravda Mikhail Bakharev
Crimea's largest-circulation newspaper, "which often promotes the same views"...

"...the bull-necked editor muses that he would personally kill a Kiev-based Afghan journalist, whose opinions on Ukraine he disagrees with, and whose ethnicity he says disqualifies him from opining on Ukraine. "I'd hit him in the stomach, not the head, so he'd suffer a little."

Barney Miller and Wojohowitz on Bigotry


If ignorance breeds fear and fear breeds bigotry,
does bigotry breed hate?

It is not bigotry to be certain we are right,
but it is bigotry to be unable to imagine
how we might possibly have gone wrong.

G K Chesterton

Can you hate someone you don’t know?

Don’t sip the Hatorade.

Maura Hartzman

If ignorance breeds fear and fear breeds bigotry
does bigotry breed hate?

The mind of a bigot is like the pupil of the eye
the more light you pour upon it the more it will contract

Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr

Does insult echo insecurity?

It is an unmistakable lesson of history
that when one group of people starts to see another group of people
as ‘other,’ or as ‘different,’ as ‘undeserving’ as ‘inferior’
ill treatment inevitably follows

Air Force Reserve Major David J R Frakt

Should we hate, slur, scapegoat, resent, envy, stigmatize
or stereotypically generalize?
