I've written before that I'm cynical about the Left charging Conservatives with excessive moralising. Ask Lefties about the environment, City salaries or smokers and you'll see a performance that'd put Martin Luther to shame. What I didn't appreciate until recently was that the same deal applies when Liberals talk about racism. The self-same people who profess to lie awake at night agonising about the fact people parading down British streets in full Islamist regalia are not greeted with a round of applause by the Infidel natives are A-OK with this sort of thing:
Exactly one month ago today, I was traveling on a London bus when a well-dressed woman boarded with her equally-respectable son in his school uniform. Ahead of her was an elderly American woman, who said, ‘I beg your pardon, I didn’t mean to bang into you.’ This prompted a tirade from the Englishwoman -- let’s call her Lady E -- that resembled a verbal assault by a brownshirt against a hapless Jewish pedestrian in 1933. The American -- call her Mrs. A -- sat down and cowered as the tirade continued: ‘I rejoice every time I hear of another American soldier dying! You people all deserve to die in another 9/11. You are destroying the world.’
Personally, I'm just glad I wasn't on the bus, otherwise I'd had beaten the L3 whore to a pulp. But how many Leftists would even think she had done anything out of the ordinary ?
