Okay, prejudice is ignorant by definition but some things really take the cake. There is an item on RNZ this morning about the election billboard of a Sikh candidate having 'ISIS' scrawled over it. This is so ignorant that it takes the breath away. I am surprised that the imbecile who did this can even spell 'ISIS'. People this dumb should be locked up for their own protection. How does this moron even manage to buy paint? That must really be intellectually challenging.

 

I remember an incident a few years ago where a woman on a domestic flight panicked because she was seated next to a Sikh. Maybe she was the mother of this idiot. Some people really should be discouraged from breeding.

Why are you surprised? To start with would a highly intelligent person graffiti over a sign?

 

Your last comment interests me based on the liberal views you share in other posts, but all in all I do agree with you here.

 

In a similar vein I do laugh very hard when I see a Maori with a swastika tattooed on them, usually on the news in a court room setting.

I laugh cry when I see white American white supremacists with swastikas on their skins, claiming to be doing it for their country. As if they forefathers didn't fight the evil to rid the world of that very sentiment they profess.

 

Easily influenced people and ignoramuses are everywhere.

when this behaviour is coming from so called leaders in society or role models it is not surprising that this level of ignorance occurs, it is however not new.

It's not as bad as the paediatrician in the UK who had hate graffiti daubed on her house for being a child molester

The swastika symbol predates Nazism. Google 'swastika' sometime. It's a girls name for many ethnic Indians.

Technically I am not sure they did. At least at first, anyway. Britain went to war with Germany (which she was reluctant to do as the Germans had historically been allies more often than not up to WW1) because Germany invaded Poland, with whom Britain had a mutual defence treaty. There was no high and mighty wish to 'rid the world of evil' - that is rather a post-war slant and of course the full details of many of the less savoury activities of the German regime were unknown until after the war.

Can we infer that she wasn't one?

I think that's a safe assumption.  The baying mobs hadn't read past "paed"
