Look up the word "bigot" in the dictionary, and you may find it's not such a dirty word after all. There is nothing wrong with being a bigot per say; I mean, I find myself bigoted towards ISIS.
A bigot is simply someone who is intolerant of a particular view/opinion.
It sounds by your own question, you are a bigot... towards Republicans. There isn't anything wrong with that.
People have the right to disagree with whatever they want, and they don' have to tolerate and accept things they disapprove of. It's not hateful to disagree or have a different opinion. It's not hateful to not like something; it's just a matter of personal preference. If I don't care to hang out with gays, it's not because I hate them or fear them. It's because I like to hand out with people who think like me... just like gay people prefer to hang out with people who think like them. It's everyone's right and they shouldn't' be made to feel bad for living according to their own morals.
I think at the end of the day, the media likes to make you think a political party is a certain way... but the media is biased and only concerned about money. How do they make money? By getting the most ratings. How do they get the most ratings? By covering heated topics that get the most attention.
Keep in mind, that just because something happens in the news, doesn't mean it's fully accurate giving you all important information, or even an actual problem.
If 99% of police officers are wonderful people trying to help society.. and 1% are racist and abusing their power, the media is only going to focus on that 1%.
Would you say 1% is a huge problem? Of course not. A problem, but not huge as if all cops are bad and the country is suddenly in trouble.
So, just because the media likes to focus in every time a Republican says this, or Liberal does that, keep in mind they are only covering the 1% so they can get ratings. And honestly, most of the hispanics in my family are conservative... and I'm pretty sure they are not hateful towards Hispanics or other minorities.2

I believe that there are plenty of extremists in the Republican party that are racists and bigots, but the basic beliefs of the Republican party are not necessarily racist, nor bigoted. People just make it out that way, and like i said, there are extremists who take it the wrong way and/or take it too far.
But its hard to describe any political party as a whole to begin with, because even within political parties, there is division and opposing opinions, because its not likely that people can agree with every belief in a political party, they just choose the party that MOST of their beliefs align with.0
