"What race is d**khead?"

Post by The Optimist »

The Labor senator was filmed, against his will, being bullied and racially vilified by a coven of burly, high-vis vest-wearing halfwits at a university bar in Melbourne.
They called Dastyari, an Iranian-born non-practising Muslim, a "terrorist" and a "monkey".
When Dastyari called them racist, they asked him: "What race is Islam?"


The scene was instantly familiar to anyone who has ever been bullied - the thugs' slow circling of their prey, the escalating taunts, the malicious dance on the edge of violence. They enjoyed every minute.
And on Dastyari's face, the uneasy calculations of the victim: Can I laugh this off? Can I ignore them? Will anyone step in to help?
The bar staff didn't, but Dastyari's fellow Labor MP Tim Watts was nearby, ducking in and out of the shakily-filmed video.
Watts stuck close to his friend and delivered what might just be the line of the year when he asked one of the men: "What race is dickhead?"
Obviously Australian.

Fair enough, but at what point does it lose it's relevance if you live in a non-Islamic society?

At least Jewish is a quasi-ethnicity.

Not sure why you're following this angle, it's a relevant point to make in the context of the story.

This is horrible too. Brain dead racist wife of Northern Ireland football player Johnny Evans.
Northern Ireland star apologises 'unreservedly' after wife calls referee a 'Romanian gypsy c***' in post-match rant
Independent.ie Newsdesk • 7 hours ago

   
The wife of a Northern Ireland player who controversially had a penalty awarded against him in last night's World Cup playoff has been criticised for a 'racist and offensive' tweet directed at the referee.

Michael O'Neill's side lost the first leg of their playoff tie against Switzerland 1-0 after Corry Evans was harshly adjudged to have handled the ball in the box, with the visitors converting the decisive spot kick.

Evans, the brother of West Brom defender Jonny Evans, was booked following the incident, which rules him out of Monday's return leg in Switzerland but it was the post-match comments from his wife that has many people talking today.

Evans' wife Lisa took to Twitter after the game and sent a very offensive tweet directed at match official Ovidiu Hategan, whose performance was slammed by O'Neill after the game.

"Romanian gypsy c***!!!," she began.

"And to actually think Northern Ireland has probably homed one of his smelly relatives!! Ungrateful t***!! Anyway onwards and upwards."

A spokesperson for the Equality Commission for Northern Ireland has condemned the tweet.

"Racist and offensive language is not appropriate in any circumstance," they told the BBC.

"When commenting on the behaviour of any individual, making reference to that person's ethnic or national origin is irrelevant."

An apology from Corry Evans on behalf of his wife has since been released through the IFA.

"On behalf of my wife, I would like to apologise unreservedly for the content and language contained in the Tweet that she issued last night.

"The comments were published in the heat of the moment and are not representative of her views."

Mormons call it 'Inactive member'.

However, if they are still paying their tithes but not attending church its 'sub-active member'.

If you change to a different religion, you are labeled an apostate.

It will be interesting what follows this...

Stan is issuing a lawsuit as they've appropriated the "Patriot Blue" name from the upcoming Romper Stomper TV sequel:

https://www.theguardian.com/tv-and-radi ... triot-blue

These idiots were also wearing their TOLL uniforms so could possibly lose their jobs.

The incident happened at the VU student bar in Footscray... it's a shame they didn't walk down the road and share their views with the locals.

"We are the most successful multicultural society in the world and that is because … our society is built on a foundation of respect.

"We should have zero tolerance for racism and racist abuse like that."

I’m not usually a big fan of Sam Dastyari, to tell you the truth I don’t like him. In saying that I don’t think he could have handle the situation any better.

One of life's winners right there.
His stellar argument about "what race is Islam" is horribly undercut by his "Go back to Iran, ya monkey" type abuse.

Still seems weird to be wearing work uniforms in a bar - that's just a no go for what I'm used to.

If you change to a different religion, you are labeled an apostate.

Which is punishable by death in thirteen Muslim countries and generally condemned in those where it isn't

Goes some way to explaining why someone might choose to call themselves a non-practicing Muslim rather than just declare themselves non-religious or atheist.

It's the same all over the world mate, claiming any of the semetic religions are race based is simplistic at best, deeply misleading at worst. A particularly problematic proposition when looking at Palestinians and Israelis, the studies done by Karl Skorecki and Harry Ostrer makes interesting reading.
