In For a Penny, In For a Pound

As long as I am to be pilloried as a racist and reactionary xenophobe anyway, I might as well carry on. Here’s the latest cave-in, this time from Britain.

    Well, no pillorying from one quarter Malcolm,

    Because this relates to Iraq it might not be viewed by some as pertinent to the present argument. However I might suggest that Islam can be terribly arbitrary. As can Christianity and other Dogma, of whichever flavor. But, it is a matter of degree.

    This must be part of the zeitgeist now:

    As long as I am to be pilloried as a racist and reactionary xenophobe anyway…

    It’s the fourth or fifth time I’ve seen a blogger utter this. Could it be that diversity and multi-culti insanity are beginning to jump the shark? It’s gonna be one of those slow-mo, long-drawn-out broad jumps, but I do think they’re finally gonna hit the sand on the other side.

    We have realized that protests against the name-calling do no good. So a positive judo move — “yes, I sure am” — takes much of the sting out of the accusation.

    IOW, I’d rather be a racist xenophobe than a mindless diversity ding-dong.

    Just saying…

    Thanks, Dymphna. Read the thread on the previous post and tell me what you think.

    yesterday’s post made me think so much that I wrote my own blog on the unclothing of women
    I also ordered the book that you recommended from Amazon used books. It came today.

    Jeannie, you’ve made my day.

    That’s a thoughtful and interesting post. I do wish you hadn’t felt reluctant to comment here; it would no longer have been an “all-male forum” if you had joined in!
