REDEFINING RACISM

... it's not what it used to be

Words matter, they matter a lot. Words define our thoughts and our thoughts drive our actions. By the manipulation of language it is possible to effect changes without people even realising what has happened.

Over the years, the definitions of the words in our dictionaries can gradually change. Often times this happens so slowly that we barely notice. Sometimes, this may be a natural process of change.  Sometimes, it isn’t.

The corruption of language can be driven by groups or individuals with agendas. It seems hardly likely that those agendas would be in our best interests.

George Orwell understood the danger posed by the corruption of language and knew who was responsible. He railed against the excessive use of long and unnecessary words, over complex sentences and vague and inaccurate descriptions. Orwell saw how this, “newspeak” as he called it, was used as a shield by the political classes to hide and distort despicable truths.

The gradual redefinition of common words is one of the most effective techniques for advancing a hidden agenda. The process is quite simple. First you take word X which is widely agreed to be undesirable. Then you gradually redefine word X to cover concept Y which you wish to eradicate. When someone expresses support for concept Y, you shut them down by simply accusing them of being an X.

One of the most devastating examples of the power of this technique is the redefinition of the word “racist”. Once upon a time, the word “racist” referred to someone who disliked or discriminated against people based upon their racial characteristics or background.

Race is a strange concept which, in itself is difficult to define. Is an Englishman of the same race as a Welshman? Are the Irish and the Scots a different race? When people advance racist arguments, they invariably stumble into a quagmire of inconsistencies and anecdotes.

In order to justify themselves, many racists simply refuse to accept or even consider the arguments of others. In effect they commit an act of bigotry, using belligerence to make up for a lack of rational thought.

Whilst bigotry is common among racists, the word itself has now been redefined to become synonymous with it. A racist is automatically branded as a bigot and the word bigot is assumed to mean “racist”.

Racism is now automatically considered to be the sole domain of the stupid, uneducated and belligerent. This wouldn’t be so bad, except that the word racist has itself been altered. This process has already had a devastating impact on our society. If left unchecked, things could get far worse.

The last couple of centuries have been a time of European dominance in world affairs. Naturally this state of affairs has led to many instances of abuse of power by Europeans. By today’s standards, many of these situations are quite shocking. When compared with the expansion of other great empires however (that’s right Ghengis, I’m talking about you), they were for the most part relatively muted and infrequent.

To the credit of Western cultures, we have undergone a self-examination and made considerable efforts to right past wrongs and level playing fields. As part of this process, we have focused on the racism of “whites” against “non-whites”.

This process has been gradually hijacked however and racism has been surreptitiously redefined as discrimination which can ONLY originate from a “white” person and can ONLY be directed towards a “non-white person”.

The intense irony of this situation is that by this process, racism has become not only acceptable, but often quite desirable. Furthermore, people who criticise certain types of racism are now denounced as racists. By extension, they are characterised as stupid and belligerent bigots.

Consider, for instance the situation in Zimbabwe in the late nineties when Robert Mugabe decided to dispossess white farmers of their land. It is hard to think of a more blatantly racist action, yet if anyone ever accused Mugabe of racism, I am not aware of it.

In fact when British PM Tony Blair protested this action he was promptly silenced by Mugabe who, with a completely straight face, accused him of racism. The sad and yet completely predictable irony of that situation was that the people who suffered most (apart from the whites who resisted and were murdered or tortured) were the indigenous black Africans who soon found themselves facing starvation and misery.

A more recent example was provided last weekend in Tunisia. After the bloodbath perpetrated by devout Muslim Seifeddine Rezgui , Tunisia’s President Habib Essid  closed down 80 mosques which he described as “Full of venom”. Naturally there wasn’t so much as a peep from the Refugee Action Group, Unite Against Facism or Gay Welsh Against the Bomb. The ABC never phoned Sarah Hanson-Young, or even Zaky Mallah for their opinions and Barack Obama was eerily silent.

I’ve been involved in a number of campaigns to stop mosques and every single time, I’ve been accused of spreading racism and Islamophobia. Can you imagine then, the hysteria if Tony Abbott were to cancel the building of a mosque let alone, God forbid, to actually close one (or 80) down?

The screams would likely be audible in Tunisia. Judging by recent events, I think that Obama would consider sending troops to execute regime change (or at least some targeted drone strikes on National Party Headquarters) and UN sanctions would be in place by next Thursday.

Habib Essid can shut down mosques without a peep and Tony Abbott can’t. We all know the reason for this is because Essid is a Muslim and is not considered “white” while Tony Abbott is a Christian who is (not that Islam is a race, but that doesn’t stop the politically correct from pretending that it is).

This is a small, yet telling example of the discrimination which is increasingly being aimed by anti-white racists against “people without colour”. You don’t need me to list all of the racist laws and practices pursued by the Australian Government. All of these laws and practices discriminate against people who don’t belong to the Aboriginal race.

There is now a push to cement this racism into our Constitution. This evil racism goes against everything our culture has stood for over centuries. It undermines the goal of equality of all individuals, regardless of race. Sadly, anyone who points this out will be branded as a racist and an ignorant bigot.

What bothers me most is not the small day to day annoyances, the gradual erosion of free speech or the constant denigration of the most enlightened culture ever devised. It is the mental picture of a frog being slowly boiled and the feeling that if we don’t act soon, it may be too late.

Racism needs to be redefined back to its true meaning as a matter of urgency. We need to accept and examine the fact that all people can be guilty of racism and all of us can be victims of it, no matter what colour we may be.

We need to reclaim the word racism and demand that it be used in its true meaning. We need to take back this word and start using it in its proper context. When we see racism, we need to call it out for what it is, no matter what race the victim or the perpetrators may be.

We need to be clear that discriminating in favour of Muslims and “people of colour” means discriminating against people who aren’t. This isn’t “positive” discrimination, it is just good old discrimination dressed up in high handed “Newspeak”. This has been done deliberately to make evil intent look like an act of kindness.

We need to be clear that if Habib Essid can close down mosques then Tony Abbott can too. To think otherwise is racist. We need to be clear that campaigning against the evils of “white” Rhodesia but looking away when Mugabe massacres 14,000 of his own people is racist. We need to be clear that expecting all white majority countries to open their borders but not expecting the same from non white countries is racist. We need to be clear that criticising white people for slavery whilst ignoring the slavery practised by black people is racist.

The people who should be dealing with this issue are the ones who never will. They either have their heads in the sand, or else jammed in a highly lucrative trough with no incentive to ever pull it out.  

As usual it is up to us, the little people, the nobodies, the lumpen proletariat, to stand up to this onslaught. What has driven the success of the English speaking people is our rejection of the abuse of power by our ruling classes.

We must watch for this pernicious practice and call it out whenever we find it. Every time we do this, we help to redefine the word back to its original meaning. We have truth and common sense on our side. We just need the courage of our convictions and a belief that what we say is right.

It is time for the people of Australia, and of the whole Western world to reject this evil racism and stand for the principle of equality which made our societies such safe and agreeable places to live.

I know that many people will accuse me of racism for saying these things but I couldn’t care less for two reasons. Firstly, I know that my accusers are using a perverted definition of the term racism which they don’t even understand. Secondly, I know that these people would never dare accuse me of racism if I was black.

This shows clearly who the real racists are.

Total agreement. This misuse of the word racism - intentional on the part of many who do it - is yet another example of BRAIN WRECK (the scramble that exists inside the politically correct brain): http://youtu.be/kGRkAr0UiFQ

Progressive political views & racism, Pat Condell nails it again: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mu8bmMrfMYw

Remember that old chant, 'worker united will never be defeated'; 'what do we want ...., when do we want it .....'; racist, bigot, phobic etc. are the chants of drop kicks without rationale or sound argument. If any individual on the planet is marginalised it is the middle aged working white family man, he is kicked from pillar to post in a national sport, and that same man is the backbone of our civil and prosperous society; go figure! Unless you are a shirt lifting, goat grinding nignog with Stalinist tendencies, you just don't rate. Very, very disappointing!

Very interesting article about Islam & ISIS, It ain't racism folks, it's based on Qur'anic scripture: https://ashraf62.wordpress.com/2014/09/26/isis-and-islam-the-ugly-truth/

"Watch for this pernicious practice and call it out whenever we find it"....Attention one and all. These same politically correct mendacious manipulators of reality are in the process of changing the integrity, definition and meaning of the word "marriage".

We don't want to be separated by race, we don't want apartheid.

I AM NOT RACIST.
However I may qualify as being Islamophobic, if this newly coined word (which is not even in my spellchecker) actually means “morbid fear of all things Islamic.
For one thing Islam is a Religion, not a Race.
Actually it’s a Political/Religious way of life, which preaches that its followers should KILL all Infidels (i.e. Anybody who is NOT Islamic) , which includes ME – so I feel justified in fearing them, and you should too unless you are a Moslem.

Pauline Hanson was the Perfect Example of the above when, in her opening speech she stated that "ALL Australians should be treated as EQUAL"
But almost Everybody then Screamed "RACIST" and they STILL DO!

As always Harry; Spot on. Wish you had a column with Fairfax, or maybe a half hour styled; 'the Truth About' on the ABC.

Have you noticed that throughout this entire debate on recognition not one Abo or Abo-wanna be has stood up and said "we'll contribute to this country this economy this society just like other Australians.We'll work and pay taxes and support ourselves so we are an asset, not a drag on Australia." I went to have an audio test done and the receptionist asked me if I had any Abo blood,"Christ no", obviously lined up with a racist comment in her head,as the temperatue cooled markedly.

Thank you Harry, well put.

Racism is discrimination based upon one's race. When taking into consideration God's choice of the Jews as his chosen people, and the fact that it was he who separated the races at the Tower of Babel, it begs the question - by today's reasoning, is anyone will to call almighty God a racist?

A Muslim asks his mother,
"Mama, what's the difference between Democracy and Racism?"
Mother dressed in her in Burkha says "Well, son, Democracy is when the Aussie tax payers work hard every day so that we can get all our benefits..... You know,
like free housing, free health care, free education and grants to build our mosques
and community centres, & so on & so forth, you know… that's a Democracy".

"But Mama, don't the Australian tax payers get angry about that?"

"Sure they do…. And that's what we call Racism!"

Tim Blair has a link to the very racist George Takei who epitomises what is discussed in this article. These Liberal Sites Don’t Want You To Know About George Takei’s Racist Rant at http://thefederalist.com/2015/07/02/these-liberal-sites-dont-want-you-to-know-about-george-takeis-racist-rant/ Earlier this week, washed up Hollywood D-lister-turned-gay-rights-activist George Takei went on a vicious racist rant against Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, calling him a “clown in black face.” Takei was regularly trotted out by numerous media outlets as a friendly, familiar, happy mascot for gay marriage in the U.S. But if you get your news from liberal websites like BuzzFeed, ThinkProgress, Huffington Post, or Talking Points Memo, you’d know nothing of Takei’s racist rant.

Russia and China have both been relentlessly targeted by the West for destruction for a long time....I'm sure they have woken up by now...as for the people in the West, well God help them

Racism & 'cherry picking' the Qur'an...that's how the Dhimmicrats & Useful Idiots are advancing radical Islamism & promoting the notion of 'Islamophobia':

“Koran Reality Check 101: Time and again you will hear dahwa gigolos and islamophiles quote the following line from the Koran:
"If any one killed a person it would be as if he killed the whole people: and if any one saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of the whole people." This is presented to convince the infidel that despite daily evidence to the contrary, 'true' Islam would be a religion of peace.
However, without knowing the actual context in which this line stands in the Koran, this is a rather misleading quote. It gives us a perfect example how Islamic supremacists misrepresent Islam in order to pull the wool over the eyes of gullible Westerners.
Here is the full text of chapter 5:32:
"For that cause We decreed for the Children of Israel that whosoever killeth a human being for other than manslaughter or corruption in the earth, it shall be as if he had killed all mankind, and whoso saveth the life of one, it shall be as if he had saved the life of all mankind. Our messengers came unto them of old with clear proofs (of Allah's Sovereignty), but afterwards lo! many of them became prodigals in the earth." (Sura Al-Maidah 5:32)
So this was a decree for the Jewish people and not the Muslims. This was from a passage which the author of the Koran has taken from the TaNaKh or Old Testament. What course of action Allah has decreed for Muslims we also find in the Koran, and we need not go as far as the infamous Sura of the Sword. Let's just read the very next verse in the same chapter:
"The recompense of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and do mischief in the land is only that they shall be killed or crucified or their hands and their feet be cut off on the opposite sides, or be exiled from the land. That is their disgrace in this world, and a great torment is theirs in the Hereafter." (Sura Al-Maidah 5:33)
By "mischief" the Koran means anything that is not in line with Islamic code of conduct. So the Koran is perfectly clear: "If people don't submit to Islam, do to them as ISIL does."
We just need to know the whole story.”

The darkies throughout Australia are more racist towards their own kind than they are of whitey .

Very good Harry. And another fact now: Antisemitism is racism, pure and simple.
And **nobody** does this better than the Muslims.

RACIST JAPS,…..I’m turning Japanese!

THIS GETS REALLY INTERESTING ABOUT HALF WAY THROUGH.

* Japan prevents the use of mobile phones in trains, restaurants and indoors.

* For first to sixth primary year Japanese students must learn ethics in dealing with people.

* Even though one of the richest people in the world, the Japanese do not have servants. The parents are responsible for the house and children.

* There is no examination from the first to the third primary level because the goal of education is to instill concepts and character building.

* If you go to a buffet restaurant in Japan you will notice people only eat as much as they need without any waste because food must not be wasted.

* The rate of delayed trains in Japan is about 7 seconds per year! The Japanese appreciate the value of time and are very punctual to minutes and seconds.

* Children in schools brush their teeth (sterile) and clean their teeth after a meal at school, teaching them to maintain their health from an early age.

* Japanese students take half an hour to finish their meals to ensure proper digestion because these students are the future of Japan.
The Japanese focus on maintaining their culture. Therefore,

* No political leader or a prime minister from an Islamic nation has visited Japan not the Ayatollah of Iran, the King of Saudi Arabia or even a Saudi Prince!

* Japan is a country keeping Islam at bay by putting strict restrictions on Islam and ALL Muslims.

1) Japan is the only nation that does not give citizenship to Muslims.

2) In Japan permanent residency is not given to Muslims.

3) There is a strong ban on the propagation of Islam in Japan

4) In the University of Japan, Arabic or any Islamic language is not taught.

5) One cannot import a ';Koran'; published in the Arabic language.

6) According to data published by the Japanese government, it has given temporary residency to only 2 lakhs, Muslims, who must follow the Japanese Law of the Land. These Muslims should speak Japanese and carry their religious rituals in their homes.

7) Japan is the only country in the world that has a negligible number of embassies in Islamic countries.

8) Muslims residing in Japan are the employees of foreign companies.

9) Even today, visas are not granted to Muslim doctors, engineers or managers sent by foreign companies.

10) In the majority of companies it is stated in their regulations that no Muslims should apply for a job.

11) The Japanese government is of the opinion that Muslims are fundamentalist, and even in the era of globalization they are not willing to change their Muslim laws.

12) Muslims cannot even rent a house in Japan.

13) If anyone comes to know that his neighbor is a Muslim then the whole neighborhood stays alert.
14) No one can start an Islamic cell or Arabic ';Madrasa'; in Japan ..

15) There is no Sharia law in Japan .

16) If a Japanese woman marries a Muslim, she is considered an outcast forever.

17) According to Mr. Kumiko Yagi, Professor of Arab/Islamic Studies at Tokyo University of Foreign Studies, " There is a mind frame in Japan that Islam is a very narrow minded religion and one should stay away from it." The Japanese might have lost the war, but they are in charge of their own country. There are no bombs going off in crowded business centers, "Honor Killings", nor killing of innocent children or anyone else.
Something to think about., people.....
