Nin must be very proud right now, the way he managed to derail the topic that derailed the Doom topic. He was trying nothing else the entire thread (scroll down) and he finally managed to do so with the strawman he pulled when bigspender made a good point about Maajid.
Maajid is against Islamist extremists, and because he was a muslim and even a member of a radical extremist group, he knows what he's talking about and thus his words should hold extra weight. Still, like every other person who tries to make a stand against zealots and the horrid shit in their holy book they live and die by, he has to spend a fuckton of energy all the fucking time debunking claims made against him for being a racist. If you know about Maajid, you'd know it's fucking ridiculous to call him a racist. His heritage is beside the point but it does make those claims even more ridiculous.
The original point that was derailed by friendly neighborhood nin was that people who are even a little bit right-winged have to deal with claims of them being rwcist by people from the left basically by fucking default. Right winged people are concerned, and left winged people think they should just shut the fuck up, do nothing, and believe in the power of love. I can understand this if you're an American -- because most republicans are fucking morons who stand in the way of the pursuit of happiness -- but it's different in Europe. Lately, the right-winged people are the concerned realists. The lefties are the hippies, with their head up their ass and with no clue wtf is going on.
