You may not wanna troll in an obvious way - you prefer getting away with it - but it's still obvious you are trolling. I assume others see this and that's why they don't bother with a response.

Tore, please. I understand you're upset because I pointed out that your views, as stated in this thread, are racist. But, please, take a few moments and ask whose fault it is.

Anyways, in regards to Crash's post: in America we inundated with discussions on privilege, which is to say victim worship. Privilege is a pseudo-scientific concept, which is defined by this feminist as:

Quote:
It is a status that is conferred by society to certain groups, not seized by individuals, which is why it can be difficult sometimes to see one’s own privilege.
We see this is not scientific because it can not be tested nor disproven. It's an amorphous ideological blob which has infected popular culture and discourse in weird ways. A good example would be when a Mestizo named George Zimmerman shot a black kid named Trayvon, and that event transmogrified into a discussion on White Racism - because the Left is obsessed with victim worship.

On the Right, victim worship takes place in Church. Christianity is, especially the Protestant forms of it, victim worship it. Hence why a film about a guy getting crucified in gnarly fashion can become a box office hit.

We've seen this on the forum, too, as seen in Above's rather "unique" journal.

Again, good job walking the fine line of trolling. I think I'll just improve the musicbanter environment by adding you to my ignore list.

The fact that you're simultaneously criticizing liberal victim worship while falling back on the 'that's racist' defense when people criticize what they see as an unjust law is delightfully ironic.

I know a couple that live and work in Dubai and they think it's a great place. They've invited be a few times to go there, but no real interest as it's just too hot. On topic though, I think what's happened to this woman is just barbaric but sadly just one of those things, so the rest of the country and religion shouldn't be tarred with the same brush (even though I pretty much dislike the Muslim religion, but that's besides the point). I just think anybody going there, should be aware of the risk regarding certain aspects of life that we take for granted as being normal here in the west and not falling foul of the laws. It's no different for someone going to say Latin America and becoming a victim of a robbery and then expecting the same levels of justice that would be applied here in most of Europe. Whilst having no love of the Muslim religion, I do agree with DJ Chameleon (I think it was he) who made an earlier post stating the West's constant interfering in the Middle East and what goes on there, and the West's so called right to dictate to them.

Any support of Dubai is at a minimum passive support of slavery

Astounding how reluctant people on this forum are to confronting their prejudices.

I'll be the first one to call Dubai out as the disgusting pit of horrors that it is but equating not hating it to supporting slavery is a bit of a stretch, especially as grouping the plight of the unfortunate underclass of the city together with actual real slavery that still goes on in the world today is a bit of a middle finger to the latter.

Well, if there's another better term for forcing labor without pay or realistic hope of leaving the country, I'm not aware of it. I mean that sincerely. That seems like defacto slavery to me
