Lesser breeds, without the law

So the Arab League summit decided to stand foursquare behind war criminal Omar al-Bashir.

Isn’t it amazing how some groups of people are prepared to support unspeakable behavior as long as it’s committed by one of their own? No doubt it’s cultural rather than genetic, but it’s hard to deny that we’re dealing with a substandard grade of human being here. The excuses are completely predictable: He didn’t do it, and if he did it it wasn’t really that bad, and even if it was, other people have done stuff and gotten away with it so it’s NOT FAIR, and anyway it’s more important to worry about the future than to judge the past.

Feh.

I know people will call me racist for saying it, but sometimes I think Arabs are really no better than Republicans.

Yes, dammit, that’s a joke, and the punchline is “Republicans.”

Just imagine your favorite dittohead nodding in agreement … until he gets to the last word.

[By the way, when Kipling wrote of "lesser breeds, without the law" he was thinking of Germans, not the peoples he thought of as "natives."]
