Now let’s purse the phrase “xenophobe with...hair on fire”. “Xenophobe” means, among other things, a fear of the foreign. It does not equate, to me, with the very pejorative term “racist”. I would admit to being a xenophobe myself to the extent that I am fearful for what this massive invasion of illegal foreigners is doing to our country and culture.
“Hair on fire” means, to me, behaving with great passion. Again, I would say I admit to exhibiting great passion in opposing illegal immigration.
So beauty and insults are often in the eye of the beholder. I am on your side on the immigration issue and do not feel Tony was, or intended, to insult you. The greater issue for those of us opposing illegal immigration is to emphasize that our opposition is to the illegality, not the immigration.
To quote the great philosopher, Obama, we were friends before this discussion and we will be friends after this discussion.
