Dastyari is a crooked little toad who takes Chinese bribes hand over fist. He had to find the biggest scumbags in Australia to make himself look good in comparison.

Both sides are bad so vote racist.

Well he was born in the Middle East.  What sort of folks were born in that region around that time?  He's probably one of them.

Even corrupt politicians don't deserve racist abuse.

That said, this seems like a good place to post a follow-up to the "racist" incident at the Air Force Academy.

The story were I was questioned why I wasn't joining in on the virtue signaling.  I said I was withholding my judgement because many of these turn out to be hoaxes.

Well...

Not to mention that they ARE racist. They use a different name. Never mind that words change meaning and that racism has for quite some time referred to any bigotry regarding ethnicity, theirs is straight up racism.

This is because to them, a Muslim is a brown person from the Middle East. They don't consider black Muslims from sub-Saharan Africa in their hate. They don't think of Muslims from Southeast Asia, even though those are the majority of Muslims worldwide. They certainly aren't directing their ire towards white European Muslims.

Just the brown people. Who, incidentally, might not actually be Muslim at all, but if they have the look they get the hate. But remember, it's not about race at all, or so they claim.
 
2017-11-10 12:22:34 AM  
Islam isn't a race. But Islamophobia doesn't exclusively affect Muslims; it affects everyone of Middle Eastern descent, no matter the religion. Because Islamophobes are too stupid and racist to tell the difference. After all, they're stupid enough to believe a relative handful of extremists (given undue influence largely due to foreign meddling) represent a religion of over a billion people; not being able to tell the difference between a Muslim and a Sikh is just more stupidity.

Bigotry -

Because over the last 30 or 40 years probably 1/3rd of the human race has slowly been standing up and saying "No, We're BETTER than that!"

...And now, apparently, it's time for the other 2/3rds to jump up with their torches, shout "fark you, no we're not!" and set it all on fire.

It's like, you take Otto West, from A Fish Called Wanda, who didn't like to be called stupid, who asserted to Wanda, "Apes don't read philosophy." You might recall that Wanda retorted, "Yes they do Otto, they just don't understand it.". Except instead of being exactly that like that, the Islamophobes don't even read the philosophy in the first place, or history, or geography, or understand any of the same.

Racism is of course deplorable, and these guys were giving this guy shiat without knowing a thing about him. But Islam is a belief system whose adherents choose to follow it literally, take liberties with interpretation, or abandon it altogether. And we absolutely have a moral right to judge those who follow it literally. Leftists have no trouble whatsoever stating that Christianity is a hateful, backward belief system that contributes nothing but bigotry, ignorance, and tribalism while wasting resources and attention that could go to improving society. Those same people will defend Islam against any criticism, astoundingly even on issues such as its deplorable track record of treatment of gays and women.

Urmmm No.

Most Christians or Muslims will never come into my focus - but those that do tend to be extremist farkheads.  Fark doesn't attack the normal Christians, or the normal Muslims, etc. we tend to attack the farkheads who wish to impose their bullshiat on other people.

I am more than willing to attack Islam - I have never seen a thread on Fark supporting ISIS or even supporting the Saudi's.  As a general rule we hate bigotry, racism, hate, abuse of power and ignorance.

Actually, a lot of us think that almost all religions are pretty stupid, Islam included. We do defend Islam against things like travel bans, because it sets the precident that we in the USA may be banned from seeking refuge someday in other countries once travel from the US is outlawed due to all the Christian terrorism that's floating around these days. So consider it just healthy self preservation. We'd rather you hate people for being the jerks that most people are anyway, rather than bringing religion into it.

Perhaps, but I don't really follow Austrian politics. Point is, then call him on his policies or questionable actions, not on race or religion like those mouth breathers did. Not that I want America to have a monopoly on racist idiots, but it saddens me not only that you seem to have the identical type of dipsheits over there, but that they are so emboldened as to harass people in a public establishment and no one steps in to say "bugger off twat".
