the truth shall set you free

at least the guy spoke honestly, and from the heart

if rascist comments like this one come from israeli diplomats in a public forum, imagine what is said behind closed doors

the rascist ideology is pervasive, and only in a country like israel can discussions of a maximum % of arabs considered tolerable be taken up in their parliament, the knesset

    Dude, total yawner. You’re going to jump on a guy for stating the obvious. Pointing out he has white skin and asians have yellow skin and slanted eyes is a statement of facts. There is nothing he said that was harmful, though multi-cultis always wet their pants to hear painfully obvious statements about race, or worse, try to huff up some righteous indignation. Total non-story.

  2. scottie Says:

    OMG, johnny b, these comments are by far your most questionable comments on the blogsite ever.

    rascism is a disease
    you saw a few symptoms in his comments, and if you want to trivilaize what he said, then go ahead, but i think that is irresponsible

    do you think that mel gibson’s drunken tirade about jews atarting all the wars (slight paraphrase) was a yawner as well?

    i seriously doubt it

    then why would you say these comments are?

  3. scottie Says:

    typo : starting not atarting

  4. JohnnyB Says:

    Scottie,

    Both are non-stories. Mel Gibson is entitled to his opinion, and saying what he said was not a crime. Racism is not a disease, it’s not in the DMV IV. I wasn’t in shock and awe from his statements either. Whether it is John Kerry, Mel Gibson, or whatever this unimportant Israeli has to say (I forget his name), people want to bludgeon them to death with self-righteousness. Australians are non-Asians living among Asians, and so are Israelis, technically (Though I must admit Australia’s neighbors are much, much nicer). That is what Israel and Australia has in common, says he. Again, where am I supposed to get enraged here? He didn’t say anything disparaging at all about Asians. I think something to do with the 24-hour news cycle has caused people of the West to avoid all frank or candid statements about race, sex, or pretty much anything, out of fear of being labeled anti-semitic, homophobe, sexist, etc. etc.

    I am not going to argue about Australians neighbors vs. Israels neighbors, I am trying to refer to Taiwan which is a pretty distant neighbor to Australia and totally rocks. If you want to interpret what I said as, “Australia/Britain successfully asserted hegemony over the island (much to the detriment of the native population!) thus preventing conflict amongst neighbors blah blah blah” then go ahead.

    The thing you are missing is that he is a diplomat, the ambassador of Israel to Australia. My mom is married to a former French ambassador to 4 different countries, so we talk during the summers on the role of the diplomatic mission.

    As a representative of your country, you never say things that reflect negatively on your country.

    That this guy said what he said in an interview with Haaretz, the leading Israeli newspaper, is so over-the-top i have no adjectives for it.

    What he said was far worse than what Allen said (macaca), in my opinion. Allen voiced a racial epithet and later denied he knew what it meant, an absurd claim given the history of his mother. With Allen, it just came out in a small-forum speech, and I am sure he regrets saying what he did.

    With the Israeli ambassador, it was an interview. He is a career diplomat. He was asked questions, and he knew his answers would be printed, and he chose his words. He was not speaking extemporaneously, where the moment got the best of him, and in an ugly attempt to be comical, showed his contempt for the dark-skinned man.

    This Israeli ambassador used familiar epithets for asians, yellow-skin and slanted eyes.

    These comments would be analogous to an a person referring to an israeli jew as having a big nose, an obvious racial slur, and an affront to all of jewry. Would you defend a comment like that as well?

    Go ahead an defend it if you want.

    I do not believe in political correctness, but i do draw the line between free and open speech and offensive racial comments being made public.

    And to make my point, the Israeli government, the most brutal government in the world in my opinion, recalled the ambassador to Israel and cut short his term. They did it for damage control, because the government is openly rascist, but his comments reflected poorly on Israel’s public image.

    But you think it is overblown.

    I over-rule you. You are wrong. His comments were unacceptable.

    Go defend David Duke or Daniel Pipes, for their venom is similar in nature to this “ambassador”.

  7. Em Says:

    Johnnyb, you know someone of asian descent. What do they say of these comments?

  8. Logipundit Says:

    You over-rule him? Holy S***.

  9. Logipundit Says:

    Saying that Jews have big noses, and Asians have slanted eyes is racist? We need to define racism here. Anyone care to take a stab at it?

  10. scottie Says:

    logipundit :

    jews have big noses
    asians have slanted eyes
    blacks have small iq’s and big penises
    whites have small penises and money

    all of the above are well-recycled snipits of rascist tripe, and if you subscribe to any of it, then you are a moral midget to me

    bigotry is evil
    people should embrace difference and learn from other cultures

    plain and simple

    there was no cosmic clash of civilizations between the jews and arabs in the late 1800’s

    this was a contrived issue born of the zionist enterprise, and atypical of the historical relationship between middle eastern arabs and jews

    both peoples are semitic

    cheers

  11. JohnnyB Says:

    Em,

    Total non-issue in our household. Asians don’t have slanted eyes? Scottie you are invited to Taiwan to come see for yourself, you will find twenty-two million pair of ’em, with skin more yellow than mine and thick black hair, to a person. Don’t know what to tell you, bro. I guess we’re more candid about our differences than you are, if that means bigoted in your eyes so be it.
