Know what’d be really fucking fun?

Systematically abducting skinheads and tattooing yarmulkes onto their scalps.

Just a thought.

  1. Perhaps you’d qualify your quip with the adjective “racist” preceding “skinheads” (…unless you detest all of them). 🙂

  2. Actually, I prefer Oliver’s “photo-pigmentizer” from Bloom County. You’ve got the right idea, though.

  3. okay guys, I guess I will have to put this principle out there again. What makes a liberal better than a concervative in my book is not sitting around thinking up pointless shit to inflict on those who we find distasteful or don’t agree with.

    A) As someone pointed out the statement would just arbritrarily class all white people with shaved heads into one catagory (bigotry)

    B)even if some one is genuinly racist this is harly the way to change them or show them a better way of doing things. You have merely drawn battle lines and both of you seem prepared to comit violent and senseless acts. America seemds to need to learn this … I am sorry to generalise but I see a tendancy (I beleive it is deliberately encouraged by American cultural propoganda) to see things as good guys and bad guys and to totaly deny the underlying humanuity of the bad guys. you cannot correct violence and hatred with more violence and hatred like begets like. Gandi had it right. Of course many people ask the question whould gandi’s methods have worked on Hitler? I don’t know but I do know I’ve met as many PC NAZI’s as non PC ones.

    C) I know people can be irritating and the urge is often great to see justice (as we see it) done but I’d just feel a pit petty if I did this. “thar we showed that racist let him go Earn… yeeehaw!”

    D) in the end and we are often very blind to this in the modern climate. You have a right to shave your head and not associate with people of other races it is the same right that alows me to avoid that kind of person! We should remember though that we endanger the whole system for everyone the moment we think we have the right to police the thoughts of others and in this case the unacceptable action would not be on the part of the skin head…. to be the good guys you must be good.

    E) hell I know you were probably jokeing (I’m the last one to critisise after my last protestations) Just makeing the point that we should think more carfully about the real implications of some of these ideas… Judge not lest yeee be … I don’t know covered in white paint with a vote republican logo tatooed onto your head….

  4. tobyd: Er, I think within this particular context, it couldn’t really be a whole lot clearer that I was referring to the kind of skinhead who is typically associated with racial bigotry and a seething hatred for Jews, and not just “anyone with a shaved head”. I mean, what would be the point/fun/whatever of doing it to anyone other than that particular kind of skinhead?

    And for fuck’s fucking sake, it’s not like I was intending this to be some actual homework assignment for the readers of this site or something. Oh, yes, I have absolutely genuine aspirations of abducting random Neo-Nazis from the street, drugging them and tattooing their scalps. I said it to be amusing, not to be politically poignant or to master some ingenious plot.

    In any event, feeling as though you’re “better” because you subscribe to the more “open-minded” ideology or whatever is kind of ironic. It’s like taking the high road, but making sure to call down below and get everyone to look up so you can waggle your dick at them.

    Your definition of what makes liberals “better” is kind of weird, too, since there’s not actually any real action required; rather, your sole criterion for what makes for better behavior is just that one ought refrain from thinking up “pointless shit to inflict on people we find distasteful” or whatever. Which, I mean, what, we can’t even fucking make jokes about ironically humorous situations that could take place?

    So by your definition we can be complete sissies in Congress and let the conservatives trample us, we can accept the same money from lobbyists to marry ourselves to corporate interests over those of our constituents, but hey — as long as we’re not joking about assholes, we’re “better”.

    I’m afraid I disagree.

  5. This is akin to not allowing anyone with a sane viewpoint to criticise others or voice their opinion, but allowing Nazis, pedophiles, Islamists etc. to say what they want, since said sissies are not afriad of centre or near-centre groups, but are afraid of the extreme right.

    Of course, the phrase “extreme right” can mean either politically conservative, morally conservative, or both.

    You come across to me, tobyd, as someone who is politically liberal but rather morally conservative (would you vote New Labour?); the result of this is political correctness.

    And yes, all this crap about tatooing shit onto their heads was only a joke – I’d probably just call them a bunch of cunts if I ever saw them.

  6. From the above statements, I mean that you seem to be a little too politically correct; a little to afraid of offending those racist arseholes.

  7. This is akin to not allowing anyone with a sane viewpoint to criticise others or voice their opinion, but allowing Nazis, pedophiles, Islamists etc. to say what they want, since said sissies are not afriad of centre or near-centre groups, but are afraid of the extreme right.

    Your analysis here is completely backwards. I’m not afraid of poor brown people threatening my way of life; I’m very afraid of rich white people threatening my way of life, because they’re the ones who actually have the ability to back up their threats with action. If there were 100 million neo-Nazis or Islamic extremists in America promoting their views, in the same way that there are 100 million fundamentalist Christians in America promoting their views right now, then it’d make sense to take them seriously as a political bloc and oppose them in an organised way. Until then, the sane thing to do is leave them be, except for specific individuals who actually hurt other people.

    But no, a bunch of stupid young men blow up two buildings and kill 3000 people (a mere 0.001% of the US population) and suddenly you’re baying for Muslim blood. Seems to me like you’re the one projecting your fear onto others.

  8. That was pretty much the plot (in spirit) of two South Park episodes. And both times it was done by 8 year olds.
    Make of that, what you will.

  9. Thought I’d lighten things up with a stupid moment, when I first read this I thought, “What the hell is a yar-mull-keys”

  10. hey J, of course I was not saying I was better! I was just saying that there was a kind of behaviour that I aspire to.
    futhur more I was observiong that all too often we dismiss the humanity of others and some irrony in the way that people enjoy the thought of the dicomfort of those they deem unworthy of empathy.

    once more I am only guilty of opion and trying to engage with what I saw as a larger issue… sparked by your joke. If you think what I said had no merrit fine… but at least accept that I was talking conceptually just as you were rather than implying that I thought you were actlly insiting violence or attacking skin heads. you put the idea out there I responded no need for rancour.

    Sorry just trying to put my own opinion did not know that it would run so counter to your pithy wisdom. yeth?
