ANN ALTHOUSE: “I’d like to see more detail about this ‘fear of being thought as racist.’ It sounds like a confession of deliberate law enforcement paralysis, a choice to permit thousands of children to be raped for decades on end, because of befuddlement about how on earth to begin to do anything without looking bad or because of a sense that your community is already hopelessly overwhelmed by evil forces that will only become more aggressive and violent if opposed.”
The “fear of racism” involves naming Muslims as perpetrators, and it’s happening in England, which has ceased to be a nation and is rapidly becoming conquered territory.
That said, we aren’t that far from that sort of paralysis here in the US in many places. The solution? A=A. Call a spade a spade, a thug a thug, a child rapist a child rapist, and a Muslim a Muslim. If some of those categories happen to overlap, well, A still equals A.
