Still haven’t forgotten how President Obama really feels about all us “bitter” folks who just keep refusing to agree with him politically.

“It’s not surprising, then, they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”  – Barack Obama 

Bigotry is the state of mind of a bigot, defined by Merriam-Webster as “a person obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices; especially: one who regards or treats the members of a group (as a racial or ethnic group) with hatred and intolerance”.[1] Bigotry may be based on real or perceived characteristics, including age, disability, dissension from popular opinions, economic status, ethnicity, gender identity, language, nationality, political alignment, race, region, religious or spiritual belief, sex, or sexual orientation. Bigotry is sometimes developed into an ideology or world view.

Yup bigotry is alive, well, nurtured and social acceptable today.  Yes, I’m calling it what it is Ideological Bigotry.  Link is to an awesome book on said topic I read in 2009.  Eric is damned good at laying it all out.
