Demographic “Pride” Is Absurd

I could never understand ethnic or national pride.

Because to me pride should be reserved for something you achieve or attain on your own, not something that happens by accidnet of birth.

Being Irish isn’t a skill, it’s a fuckin’ genetic accident.

You wouldn’t say, “I’m proud to be 5 foot 11 inches. I’m proud to have a predisposition for colon cancer.”

So why the fuck would you be proud to be Irish, or proud to be Italian, or anything?

— the late George Carlin


Correct, Mr. Carlin!

Note to GLBTQ activist-Communists:

“Pride” does not mean shaming or threatening others with violence. Pride is calm, confident and internal.
