Tory MP Philip Davies said: “This is the sort of politically-correct garbage Diane Abbott has become famous for. “The people who are really racist are those who see everything in terms of race. This kind of claptrap is manna from heaven for extremists like the British National Party.”
And why stop there, methinks. How about the obnoxious Sotomayor in the U.S.? Or Cynthia McKinney? Or any number of people with a chip on their shoulder, usually along three lines – being a woman, being black or being gay?
Maybe all three combined.
Anything, absolutely anything they come out with is tinged [tainted?] with one of these and instead of arguments, they ignore this “fairness” they all talk about ad nauseam and they themselves spew out the worst one-word, jingoistic slanders imaginable – sexist, racist and homophobic. It’s their insta-response to anything remotely threatening.
I feel deeply humiliated by such as these. My sensibilities have been offended.
Doesn’t matter if it has SFA to do with sex, race or sexuality – anything remotely at odds with their view gets slandered, with no recourse for the people slandered under these two governments [U.S. and UK]. If you intensely dislike the spread of Shari’a Law, you’re racist. If you take issue with the feminists over their highly destructive antics and tomes, you’re sexist. Couldn’t be bothered addressing the gay lobby again.
I lost count of the number of people I knew in the States who said that when they went into a government department, Post Office or whatever, they preferred not to be dealt with by a black because they actually wanted the job done properly. The complaint was that the black wouldn’t shift herself and had this perma-resentment and sense of “work to rule”.
Now I can’t comment on that because I don’t live in the States but I can certainly report what was said to me by residents, for discussion purposes.
In all of this, there is no attack on the intrinsic womanhood or blackness or inclination of the person and this is where perma-victims should stop and think it through. This post, in its entirety, is an attack on behaviours. This blog’s attacks are always about certain behaviours and the people who pursue those behaviours, talk about them, act on them and form their ideologies based on them.
It’s significant that the people who make the most noise are not the cabinet makers or sailors or shepherds or National Trust employees or volunteers or any of thousands of groups and organizations across our two lands. If they have genuine issues, they’ll speak out on them.
No, it is these same three groups every single time and I’m sick to death of their behaviour. Translated into thicko-speak, I’d like to say to these people, “Won’t you just shut TF up about it for once?” Have they never heard the word “counter-productive”?
Call me sexist, racist or homophobic and you’ll get short shrift because I know what I am and what I’m not and hardly need those people to tell me. All this is is seeing something wrong and speaking out on it, just as those three groups seem to think they’re doing.
I bet almost everyone reading this now has a tale to tell about this issue.
