Your top five dreadful people the Google manifesto has pulled out of the woodwork

I vote to add the clearly bigoted Kieren McCarthy in San Francisco.

You cannot condemn people for holding beliefs you disagree without being called a bigot. You can debate their beliefs, freely, but you cannot merely observe they hold a belief you disagree with and that make them dreadful.

So I vote to add the clearly very bigoted Kieren McCarthy in San Francisco. For a long time bigotry has been standard in the USA, only who is doing it and who they condemn varies. It is so entrenched there the bigots don't even realize they are themselves committing a dreadful evil act when they speak, post or write.

Oxford English Dictionary definition of bigot:

A person who is intolerant towards those holding different opinions.

Merriam-Webster definition of bigot:

a person who is obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices
