Something absolutely insane happened at YVR yesterday. Even worse, though expected, the perpetrators are now labeling as racist anyone who publicly criticizes them. I've just sent the following letter to the Vancouver Sun:
The recent thug-like theatrics at YVR by Harsha Walia and her cohorts is a disgrace of the highest order. While the participants undoubtedly think an injustice is being done to them, I wonder if their little de facto gang stopped for a moment to consider what two points they made with crystal clarity:
- They have absolutely no respect for the law, let alone order.
- Playing the politically correct race card is as transparent as the hollow arguments they've been making.
A half German-Canadian who would be saying EXACTLY the same thing if the gentleman in question were from my father's homeland.
