I am embarrassed and ashamed. I hoped that people in my country would never say things like ’Fucking niggers! Let them drown. We should burn them.’ ever again. But they do. Out in the open, not hidden anymore in some back room. And they do more. They burn down refugee homes, they organize torch parades, they post hate speeches on facebook and other the social medias.

 

We are a democracy. They are allowed to do at least some of this. But I say No! Loud and clear. I neither tolerate nor accept racists.

 

You may ask why I’m doing this here. I saw a comment by Anja Reschke yesterday. She asked us to say no and that is what I do.
For those who speak German, here is what she said.

May the NO of the large majority of your countrymen be heard loud and clear by the hatemnongers. In your country, in mine, and in the rest of the world.

 

Peace

I say NO with you, Adi.

We must never forget, that the hate of the ever growing group no-brainers may now target others, but it takes oh so little to divert their attention to other minorities, like the GLBT community.

 

Thanks for focussing our attention on it.

We face the same fight in Sweden too. Just a few days ago our extremist party put up a really offensive add campaign in the subway. Sure, they have the right to speak their mind, but so many people said NO loud and clear. We all have to speak up!

My German is worse than I expected... Would you manage to find a transcript somewhere? I tried to Google but she has too many comments...

All it takes for the haters to win is that others do nothing. Stand up and speak up.

 

Thanks for posting this, Aditus.

We are having the same problem in Finland. There was a racist FB post from one of the MPs and it was answered with a very load and visible NO. But it is very scary how many ordinary people think it´s ok to be a racist, not that they think they are being racist just patriotic.

I find this very disturbing. It show how far the world hasn't come. There are so many truly good people in the world, in all countries, but hate is a part of humanity that seems to lurk in the shadows, waiting to pounce at any opportunity. Democracy should not be used as a cover. It should be used as a weapon against this sort of thing, to make laws that ensure this can't flourish, and that comes from the people. Good for you, and all who make a stand. Anja Reschke is an everyday hero... there needs to be more of them. Thank you for bringing attention to this, Adi... Gary.

      Well, I cast my first vote in an election yesterday, and I'm happy to say that almost all of the people I voted for won here in Virginia. The moderate Bob McDonnell trashed the extremist Creigh Deeds, the left of center candidate for Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli easily defeated the radical Steve Shannon and a bunch of local republicans won here as well. The only candidate that I voted for who didn't win was Jody Wagner, but I don't really think this was a good year for her to run. She was a great candidate, but she got stuck on a losing ticket with a group of left wing racists here in Virginia and the people went another way.
       
      Unfortunately, the democrats in Maine have voted against gay marriage. But on the plus side, New Jersey has a new, though morbidly obese, republican governor elect. Hopefully he'll trim more fat from the budget than he has from his diet.
       
      Hopefully, the republican fools don't get too overconfident about what happened yesterday and start to think that they can cruise to victory next year in the mid-term elections. And hopefully for the democrats, they'll realize that Tim Kaine is an inept party leader and that when they snubbed Howard Dean, they screwed themselves over. Because the truth is, before Dean was chairing the DNC, they had nothing. Under Dean, they regained complete control of the house, the senate and the white house. Not to mention the fact that they won an overwhelming majority of the governorships in the nation. They should probably give him a call and beg him to come back.
