Multiculturalists among us keep trying to defend enraged Koranimals with placards saying “Behead all those who insult the prophet” by screaming “racist” at those who rightly take offence. This must not be tolerated.
Islam is not a race. Useful idiots who aid and abet this kind of behaviour must be ridiculed and shown the error of their ways.
- Tim Blair has had enough of the great “racism” shut-up
- But, but… I’m a university prof, how can I be racist?
We could do with a moratorium on compulsive accusations of racism. It won’t be easy to wean obsessive users away from kneejerk calls, so maybe an alternative accusation might be employed. I suggest regicide. If you’re going to aim anywhere, aim at the top.
A WHILE ago I got into an argument with a member of Sydney’s rich white Labor community. He decided that something I’d written about Islam was racist.
Trouble was, he couldn’t precisely identity what particular race I’d offended. Islam isn’t a race. You can test this at home by converting to the faith, which is substantially simpler than converting to black or Asian or white. Even David Hicks, no genius, managed his Islamic conversion easily enough.
My opponent ended up proposing a definition of race based more on religion, culture and background than on skin colour or genetic factors.
