The Boy who Cried Racism
As I am sure you know there are people who cry "racism" at any chance they get: Keith Olbermann, Jeane Garlofolo, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, David Blumenthal and so forth. The point of this tactic is to demonize the opposition. So for instance is you disagree with the tea parties instead of calling them to be wrong about what they are complaining about you call them "racist" so that you can demonize the opposition. You search as hard as you can for find anything to do with race and immediately conclude that racism must be the key issue. I clearly have no respect for these kind of people but there is something else which is wrong about these criers of racism. And that is that they trivialize racism. If you complain and call everyone a racist, which is what 90% of what the "news" programs are today, you turn racism into a trivial issue. Because there are times when racism really is an issue, but when it is the same criers of racism that rise up and call it racism then I am immediately discouraged from thinking of it as racism. This is a problem with these criers of racism, they create a trivial issue from an important issue. It is just like these Jewish people who assume that anything not in their favor must automatically be anti-Semitic. The employer hired your goyish partner over you in a promotion, it must be because he is an anti-Semitic, these criers of anti-Semiticism delude themselves to believe. And once in a while, in a few occasions, there can be authentic anti-Semiticism, but when these people tell me someone was anti-Semitic I immediately refuse to listen to that because form my experience they cry anti-Semiticism at any chance they get. Racism, along with other isms when when it comes to hate must not be trivialized, so before you want to cry racism or whatever, ask yourself a lot of questions first.
