Palestinians Protest Romney Statements as ‘Racist’

31st July 2012

Read it.

Really? What ‘race’ is ‘Palestianian’? What ‘race’ is ‘Israeli’? How do they differ? And how do you cope with the Arabs who say that it’s impossible for Arabs to be anti-Semitic because Arabs are Semites too?

The dirty little secret of modern Political Correctness is that accusations of ‘racism’ merely mean ‘I belong to a fashionable victim group, and you do not, so when you say something I don’t like, I get to call you “racist”. And the media will support me because they’re as ignorant and tendentious as I am.’

    It is a sad commentary on the debasement of the language when words like ‘racism’ become so elastic in meaning that they can be stretched to cover any situation.

    Kinda like ‘progressive’ in that regard…

    Wow, that just about nails it.
