Labour: Guilty by association?

Is it racist for someone to say, “Chinese people are bad”?

Obviously, yes of course that is racist.

Not only is it completely prejudiced to believe that based only on their outer appearance and culture, it’s also completely illogical to hate all of the one billion people that happen to live in China and the millions more around the world.

My dictionary defines racism like this:




The title was suggested by one of my distant American friends.

I don’t even usually think of myself as a Jew; to 99% of the people here, and elsewhere, I am a white person. I don’t even look Jewish. When pressed to define what a Jewish person looks like, I’m at a loss, as there are even African Jews and Chinese Jews out and about, not just the Protocols-Of-The-Elders-Of-Zion-Esque Long-Nosed Rabbi-Snakes curling their majestic coils about the circumference of the terraqueous globe.

What did we do with France?

  • In France, the president can say “Piss off, you dumbass” to one of his citizen and nothing happens. But when a citizen is yelling at the president cause he is unhappy, then he get sued and has to pay a fine. Apparently, the french revolution abolished the privileges but our new government brought them back.
  • In France, a member of the government can make very racist comments but  doesn’t have to resign his job and can keep on stigmatizing some minorities, cause after all, they are all criminals, aren’t they? You got to admire how good our politicians are in history as they are reproducing some 1940′s techniques when they are rounding up some immigrants and also in their way of talking about them… Ah! The Vichy government left us some very useful teaching!!!!

The Bilderberger Strain in the Tea Party

Even more than the allegations of racism among the Tea Party movement this report about Rep. Bob Inglis’ brush with Tea Party conspiracy theorists is just depressing.

The Wrong Reason to Fire Helen Thomas

I agree that former White House correspondent Helen Thomas’ odious comments about Israel’s conduct of the Gaza flotilla operation warranted her dismissal. It wasn’t just that this episode is startling in the context of her usually banal performances. Her tenure, after she shattered the glass ceiling for women reporters, was also an affront to meritocratic norms. She epitomized all the selfish scorn for democracy any politician she mocked did.

And, she was very banal indeed in the context of some of these comments, particularly this criticism of Israeli democracy.
