Subject: Who do you really hate!
From: GUEST,An English Patriot
Date: 27 Mar 04 - 05:46 AM

Who do you hate? I mean really hate. Who gets up your nose? Who do you have an all consuming hatred for? Who, in a fantasy world where you are a dictator, would you throw into the Tower of London simply because you cannot stand the sight of them. Whose name is it, the very mention of which, makes you froth at the mouth and boil over with anger,brings on apoplexy, and causes everyone else to look on with amusement? Who is it you hate and why do you hate them? I'm curious. Hate is always stronger than love. Hate focuses the mind. Hate brings the true self to the fore.

William Wallace was a patriot, Michael Collins was a patriot, Mandela was a patriot, Alfred the Great was a patriot. Patriotism is not necessarily the last refuge. It can be a higher calling. And life is never too short to hate. As my Dad use to say before he died:"The older I get, the more people I hate."

I'm sorry for your Dad, English Patriot, he must have died a deeply unhappy person.

Neither does one have to hate in order to be a patriot. Patriotism is associated with love (of country, of people, of ideals) and not with hate, which is more often a characteristic of bigotry.

So please don't sully the word "patriotism" by attempting to associate it with hate. The two don't go together.

What a thread to start...you must have lots of bitterness inside you for whatever reason. I am sorry for that, and I wish I could make it better for you. But hate won't help - trust me on that, I have seen from close up a lot more of the results of hate than most people have, and the outcome is never hapiness.

I'm not saying patriotism = bigotry. ElGreco and Eric the Red are implying that. You can hate people for any number of reasons. I'll tell you who I hate, and she is just one of many. Valerie Wilmer. She use to be a jazz critic for the Melody Maker in the 70s -Hate never forgets! Her supercilious, superior, sanctimonious scribblings use to drive me to distraction. Everyone was a racist apart from her. This is someone who knew everything about jazz except how to enjoy it. Her school-marm tone was patronising beyond belief. Black people had to accept her agenda or were labeled, implicitly, not directly, as an Uncle Tom. The blues artist Roy Brown fell foul to this insult from her. Music, to her, was a branch of sociology that exists purely for political purposes. The fact that people make music for the love of it and for no other reason, escaped her completly. She was also a photographer and a mighty mediocre one at that. She is the sort of person who takes a high moral tone so that they can look down thier noses at others. I hate the fucking bitch. God, that feels better now that I have got it off my chest.

Dislike, despise, abhor - yes. Hate - no, it's too strong, I agree with Kendall's definition.

I dislike the combination blue-green; hundreds of mindless pop (pap?) songs of the 70s and 80s; certain people's habits, like picking their nose and then eating the bogey (yeechh); Tiny Tim's voice; my own picture in the mirror (too fat).

I despise George Bush (both of them); Kirk Douglas (for his views and behaviour on gun control); my own smoking habit (not of others).

I abhor racism; bigotry; fame-for-fame's-sake; muzak.

I wouldn't kill any of the above, with only one exception: my smoking habit, which I am trying to kill, but have only managed to maim it severely so far. I am gathering steam to deliver the final blow.

Hatred may put a spring in your step and roses in your cheeks, if adrenalin is your drug of choice, but it's a very bad way to make decisions in the real world. Judge Jeffries was a hater. (You Brits should know who he is.) Would you rather have his place in history or Nelson Mandela's? Mind you, that doesn't keep me from doing it privately.

I've tasted hatred and swore that I would "have my day" with a couple of people in my past. The truth is that as I get older, if the opportunity came to even a score, I probably wouldn't want to waste the energy on them.
Hate is a horrible term and implies a thoughtless negativity usually borne of an instinctive reaction to something unpleasant that, in time, will hopefully be replaced with a more appropriate description of your dislike, maybe even "pity".
There are too many loathsome individuals in the world, and to begin to list the people I dislike (for whatever reason) seems a rather pointless exercise, given the fact that nobody is likely to be much interested in who gets under my skin, although it does give some indication as to the type of person you are.
Wouldn't it be much easier to talk about your likes and preferences?
Who and what you love will say more about you and make far more interesting reading.

I'm beginning to wish I had never started this thread, which, in truth, is pretty light hearted. I believe no-one when they say they don't hate other people. It's a feeling that we all have. To say otherwise is, in my opinion, to deny human nature. Afterall, we all have heroes (at least I do-and I'm thinking of starting a thread for that)so if you love someone for their admirable, or what you consider admirable, qualities, you can hate someone for their negative, or what you percieve as negative, qualities. You make a judgement based on a gut feeling. For instance, I cited Valerie Wilmer earlier on as my particular focus of hatred. This is based purely on her public broadcasts, journalism, etc. If I met her, who knows how I might feel about her. I might be very fond of her as a person. She might be a cow. I don't know. All I do know is that when ever I hear her on the radio or read her journalism, something in me seethes with hatred. It just happens. I cannot help it. Incidentally, I wish her as a person no harm.

Engish Patriot - I understand your feelings regarding Valerie Wilmer perfectly. And I agree that there can be a funny side to this sort of thing. It's mostly a question of semantics.

For instance: I can't stand the teletubbies. I detest most of Frank Sinatra's song catalog (though I must admit he was a very good performer). Paul Anka's recordings make me sick! And so it goes... :-)

All depends on the context, doesn't it?

Teenage girls use the term losely when discussing likes and dislikes -- they LOVE this movie star and HATE that one... But this has nothing to do with the genuine emotuion of acute or chronic hate as grown, independent individuals feel it, with its overtones of the wish to destroy.

So I suppose you need to be clear on the semantics you are invoking.

By hate I mean strongly dislike for some reason. it could be because of their manner, their attitude, their politics, style, anything. So I guess I'm with the teenage girls here. I "hate" Tony Blair for his politics and his style. However, if I ever got to know him - fat chance! A bit above my social circle - I don't doubt for a moment that I would like him. I have freinds with whom I profoundly disagree but with whom I remain good freinds. To prove my point,I have a freind who both likes "Titanic" and is an admirer of Ken Livingstone, and yet I still go out drinking with him.

Ah -- we're using the light social definition, not the deep "glare of vaporization" one.

Well, I hate noise polluters -- high-amp car stereos are an example -- who think the solution to a flaccid persona is to steal other people's space and fill it with their antisocial vibes. Rap on a ghettoblaster has the same effect. Cars with poor mufflers, and motorcycles intentionally left undermuffled. Loudly chirping traffic light signals. I think the world must have been a lot more pleasant sounding 150 yrs ago, even if other issues were a lot tougher.

People who talk on cell phones in public places - especially those who are talking with poor connection, or to someone on the other end with bad hearing, so they YELL.

Tailgaters.

People who drive slowly on two-lane roads so you have no choice but to tailgate them.

(The conjunction of the above two was intended as a joke. I bet someone responds accusing me of hypocrisy, though, even with this explanation.)

People who can't, or won't, do anything for exercise, even go for a walk, without putting on an expensive, or expensive-looking, running suit. (Although I concede that that's still better than them not exercising.)

People who assume all lawyers are rich. (I'm a lawyer who practices alone, out of one room in his house, in a little Vermont village. My income as a parttime folksinger is a significant part of my total income.)

(Hey, this is getting to be fun. Kind of therapy...)

People who smoke tobacco anywhere at all that I have to breathe it.

People who talk about "smokers' rights."

People who talk about the drug problem at cocktail parties, with their third martini in hand. (I do drink. I don't do illegal drugs. But I don't kid myself about the degree of difference.)

People in jam sessions - mostly, but not all, banjo players - who think it's a race, or a volume contest, or both.

People who can really flatpick a guitar.

People who tell me I must vote either Democrat or Republican, because otherwise I'm "throwing my vote away," and thereby contribute to the perpetuation of the two party system, which is depriving ordinary middle- and lower- class people of any political power at all, and slowly killing this country.

I'll post again when I think of more.

Peter.

I heartily dislike the use of "yous" as the plural of you. Don't think I can hate, too much emotional investment.

Hating a "who" is what prevents mankind from real progress. Hating a "what" might be more constructive, though it too is nasty stuff.

Hate keeps us in a moral dark ages, but can I hate hate?

Peace, Mooh.

Now we're talkin'. "Detest" is the word. Yeah. I detest those Paul Anka songs. I have no particular hatred of Paul Anka as a human being, it's just his friggin' songs!

We're getting into some good stuff here. Let me add...

Most rap and hip hop music.

Advertising on radio and TV.

Pop-ups.

Telemarketing!!!

I'll go for actions I detest rather than people:
Blowing tobacco smoke into my face.
Throwing rubbish of any sort where someone else is required to clear it.
Playing loud music or rap/hip hop etc from cars or where others have to endure it.
Nearly all advertising.
Does this mean I am now officially middle aged?

Can I also join the ranks of geezerhood? Everything alanabit said I agree with. But I always felt this way, which must mean I was born a geezer.

Yeah, things one gets pissed off with. We'd all have attained Buddha-hood if there weren't those acts or people that send up our blood pressure.

Loud noises from loud people, adverts of all kinds, litter, unconscious people, cigarette smoke, the arrogance of ignorance, hypocrites...HAH! I'm off the leash now!!..xx..e

I guess I'll chime in here...

I don't hate anyone. I hate some of the actions of certain people. But actions are merely behaviors and behaviors can be changed. If all the people whose actions I hate were to receive prefrontal lobotomies they would no longer perform those actions and everything would be hunky dory. They would all be vegetables and I certainly don't hate vegetables (though I'll admit to a mild dislike for Bush beans).

Our incredibly rude, obnoxious, heavy-footed, drunk-driving landlord who lives right above teeny, tiny (but still very cheap)apartment. I detest him. Some day I want to find out which breaker switch is his, because I can hear what he's watching on his overly immense entertainment system better than I can hear whatever I'm trying to watch or listen to. Not to mention that the explosions (he likes dumb action flicks, not necessarily a sin, I just prefer to pick my own time and place to watch them, at lower volumes) sound so loud that my deaf do thinks there's a thunderstorm of fireworks going on and freaks out and tries to crawl under my skin.
There, how's that for a rant!

PS Someday it's gonna be a pipe and drum corps CD at dawn, REALLY loud. Probably on the day I find another place to live first, though. Had my taste of homelessness once, don't wanna go that route again, thanks.

I hate boorish recitations of tedious truisms when people are trying to have fun with b.s. If you don't actually hate anybody it doesn't do any harm to say "who" you "hate"--I hate Michael Douglas, I hate Oliver Stone--unless you're just infatuated with the idea you don't hate anybody, then maybe you ought to keep rehearsing it.

I really enjoyed the bit about whatsername the critic. My favorite writer, Nabokov, has some excellently written hates. His poetry-war letters with Edmund Wilson are a lot of fun to read.

I don't know if the following qualifies as hate, exactly. For years I have intensely disliked those "Baby on Board" signs that people put in their automobile rear windows, thereby obstructing their rear view. I wish they would take those f#ckin' signs and stick them up their collective rear ends. Frankly, I do not care. I will drive carefully, regardless.

Brucie, I like those signs. Take a doll, nail it to a plank, then affix the sign Baby On Board. It's cute.

I hate it when people don't like to "analyze" humor or jokes. Why not?

I hate "Tee shirt". It's a damn T-shirt. It looks like a T. You don't set golf balls on it. I think a guy having to pee would be better rendered as having to P but I'll let it go.
