Reader comment on: The New Anti-Racist Racists

I hope you follow up to this article to write about the use of this new rhetoric to attack the defenders of our way of life. This new rhetoric which brands with the epithet "racist" all Americans who do not side with BLM; this new rhetoric which brands "racist" who object to imperialistic Islam, even as they excoriate the vestiges of Western imperialism...which are discovered under every rock and behind every tree. People in glass houses should not throw stones. Jesus said, "By their fruits you will know them." Exactly. The "racists" are those who maltreat those with different physical features than themselves. And while those who maltreat those with different religious affiliations than their own are not, using standard English vocabulary, "racists", they are "religious bigots" and there is every reason to hold them accountable for their actions. But telling the truth is never a crime, even if it is unpopular and uncomfortable. The real heroes of our time are not the noisy advocates of BLM and Islamic imperialism...they are the few who stand up when they are maltreated, who call out their oppressors, and who insist on justice. In my youth most of those real heroes were Democrats in the USA and Laborites in the UK. But the tables have turned, and now the "anti-racists" have become the "racists". Let's keep our eyes on the kind of society we want to live in, and not on labels.
