As the old saying goes, "laughter is the best medicine." There is nothing like a good comedian or comedienne doing stand-up comedy for producing side-splitting, tear-jerking, uproarious laughter. America has lost its iconic comedienne, Joan Rivers, in what most would describe "under unusual circumstances." Her biting wit will surely be missed.
With Joan Rivers symbolic of the iconic comedienne, another stand-up comic has become symbolic for highlighting some of the more outrageous acts involving southerners. "You might be a redneck, if..." rocked Jeff Foxworthy to fame with many individuals creating their own criteria for classifying "rednecks." He never fails to find humor in the everyday, mundane life details that hit home with everyone, not just southerners.
Following in the footsteps of Foxworthy, although not being very humorous, leftist liberals have invented their own version of "might be a redneck." Commonly known as "You might be a racist, bigot, or an Islamophobe, if..," liberals break every opposition to any government policy or "progressive" ideology down to being a racist or a bigot. When anyone opposes Islam, the dreaded label of "Islamophobe" is applied.
Here are a few examples that might qualify someone as a racist, bigot or Islamophobe, according to the leftist liberals.
- If you don't like Obama because of his policies, character or actions, you might be a racist, bigot or Islamophobe.
- If you oppose an open border and amnesty for illegal aliens residing in the United States, you might be a racist, bigot or Islamophobe.

Subscribing to any of these examples could get one branded a racist, bigot or Islamophobe – maybe all three. All of this would be funny if it were not the current attitude among many in America today. America has become divided along every difference imaginable.
In order to combat the growing division in America today, it is important to stand firm in our beliefs, fear no name-calling or labeling, and confront those who seek to destroy this nation with their flavor of the month ideology. The Chinese buffet mentality regarding our Constitution and our just and constitutional laws must be closed. It's time to tell those who seek to destroy our country that regardless of the efforts to shame us into silence, we will not be silent. What better way to tell these individuals we stand firm than by listing our beliefs and claiming the unjust labels applied.
This list is definitely not all-inclusive. Many more examples abound and new ones are sure to surface with the midterm elections a few weeks away.
So, take your best shot and finish the phrase "You might be a racist, bigot or Islamophobe, if …."Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter. You can also get Freedom Outpost delivered to your Amazon Kindle device here.
