It’s not Islamo-phobia when you know they want to kill you. It’s just showing good sense. The Islamists on the attack in Algeria and other parts of Africa and elsewhere are now being referred to as Islamists. Not generically neutered by the word “terrorists”, but by what they are, Muslims who are violently spreading Islam, just like they always have since Mohammed, and it’s about time. Some truths you just can’t ignore forever.
It’s not homo-phobia when you’re not afraid of them but you are disgusted by their behavior. Phobia is a synonym for fear. Disgust isn’t fear and the homosexuals aren’t out to kill us all, they want us all to be homosexual. This is why they want to marry and be able to adopt children. The more children raised by homosexuals, the more homosexuals.
It’s not racism when you dislike certain racial groups because of their common attitudes and behaviors, but when people of one race deliberately separate themselves from the rest of humanity, that IS racism. Japanese are very strict about maintaining their Japanese-ness. American blacks try not to “sound white” and adopt non-white names and religions.
It’s not racism for non-Hispanics to stay out of Hispanic neighborhoods, or non-blacks to stay out of black neighborhoods. These people have high rates of violence and crime. It is phobia, though. Good, healthy fear.
We need to take the Political Correctness back out of our common language. Islamophobia is a valid word. Homophobia is not, and Racism is often used to throw guilt trips onto good, honest people who have every reason in the world to be properly afraid.
Our language has become filled with words that are lies. Newspeak is upon us and we need to get back to real words with real meanings.
