*Adding:

narrow minded : mente fechada

Unbelievable actually that someone who appears to be as intelligent as yourself would be so narrow minded as to think I walk around looking to pick a fight with anyone who would dare look their nose down on me. I am not that fragile. perhaps you are.
Acho que poderia usar conservative, pra pessoas conservadoras
Exemplo: Bush is not merely a conservative, he is the conservative.

Espero ter ajudado
