Thoughtcrime of the Day: Culturally speaking, "Asians" are whiney, spoiled, manipulative, perpetual teenagers

with chip on their shoulders the size of Surrey.

Ten years ago, on Feb. 9. 1998, Chopra was in the audience when his incoming boss, one André Lachance, introduced himself to colleagues with the declaration that — horror of horrors — “he liked visible minorities.”

Chopra declared this to be “a racist remark,”
and used it as Exhibit A in his ongoing human-rights nuisance suits.

So, saying you're not a racist means you're a racist. And I suppose pointing out the logical contradictions of the HRCs and their Complestants also makes you a racist. Does having the capacity for rational thought make you a racist, I wonder? Maybe wondering if the capacity for rational thought makes you a racist, makes you a racist.

I wonder: does the HRC think that if a woman says no, she really means yes too?

Apparently John Ralston Saul, Canuckistan's Philosopher King, thinks that thinking too much about racism makes you a racist:

John Ralston Saul argues that Canada is “a Métis civilization” that owes all it has (except for the nasty racist bits, of course) to “Aboriginal inspiration.”

The question of how, exactly, a bunch of warring, pre-literate aboriginal hunter-gatherer societies can claim credit for the creation of a modern, democratic, capitalist, industrial powerhouse built entirely in a European image is one that, alas, I must leave for others. That’s because I could not get past Saul’s ridiculous introduction, in which he claims, Deschamps-style, that white, liberal sympathy and guilt regarding the plight of Canada’s natives are merely manifestations of — you guessed it — racism.

Does thinking about people thinking too much about racism make John Raulston Saul a racist? Maybe wondering if John Raulston Saul is a racist makes me a racist. Oh right, I forgot. I'm already officially a racist.

My head hurts.


The Canadian Human Rights Tribunal (HRT) adjudicator became the first jurist in recorded human history to convict someone of racial discrimination for praising visible minorities.

Let's give 'em a big hand.

Chopra was frustrated by a career stalled in middle management. He was particularly incensed when he was passed over for acting Division Chief — even though he went on to flunk a test that was a prerequisite for the post.

A Punjabi Hindu who’d emigrated to Canada in the 1960s, Chopra decided there was a racist conspiracy against him.

Yeah, "visible minorities" ("Asians" in BBCspeak) are like that. It's pretty much the reason no one likes them in the soap-loving countries where people are supposed to know how to behave and don't usually rely on the mutaween to help them prove how manly they are by bullying women and Christians.

I worked with a guy once who'd come over from some godforsakenhellhole and obviously thought it was a big come-down in life to work with his hands in a bakery...and with a bunch of women to boot. Particularly women who refused to do his work for him and thank him for the privilege.

I think what really got under his skin was the contempt we held him in. He insisted it was racism. We just thought he was a jackass who, at 50-odd, seemed to be stuck in a permanent state of whiney adolescence.

From his early years as a drug evaluator at Health Canada, he rubbed a lot of people the wrong way. Colleagues complained he was authoritarian and confrontational — not the sort of scientist you wanted running a department.

Oh, how well I remember.

Everyone applauded the day he stomped off the job in a huff shouting about how no one respected him.

During 37 days of HRT hearings over the last two years, he let loose with a slew of theories about why he’d been denied the job — some so unhinged that even the otherwise sympathetic Deschamps chastised Chopra for undermining his own credibility.

Yeah, that's the guy.

Well, it looks like that Mutaween is finally coming through for them in Canada:
But in the end, Deschamps still came down on Chopra’s side — awarding him $4,000 in damages, plus a few thousand extra in interest and extra wages.

Mr. Kay concludes:
Aside from being another advertisement for why we should be closing down Canada’s human-rights commissions, the episode nicely illustrates the absurd lengths to which our society’s elites will now go to demonize Whitey. Used to be that us white males had to actually say or do something racist to get put on the human-rights dock. That criterion has now been downgraded to “preferred, but negotiable.”
