  1. I'm not implying that most or even many New Zealanders feel as he does, but it's quite clear his mindset is a consequence of historical Eurocentrism.
  2. Thus the "White Nationalism"; the nation he was trying to protect was his skin color. Also: >implying there's any meaningful difference between Australians and New Zealanders
  3. "Othered" in the sense that they are considered less American/Australian/Kiwi/etc. because they don't fit the standard definition for one reason or another. If they weren't "others" in the country then they wouldn't have been singled out as a target for an attack. The shooters whole shtik was purging "foreigners".
  4. While the attack was obviously anti-Islamic it's pretty clear from his words that the larger issue is White Nationalism and Islamophobia is just one element of it. It was the same with the Pittsburgh synagogue shooter: it wasn't just an attack against one specific group alone but rather against all those who are othered in mainstream Western society (as he described it the "invaders").
  5. Don't really see the harm or how it's particularly political. Anti-vaxxers quite literally contribute to the spread to of preventable disease so that is a factor in our modern world so it's fitting for such a game. also lol anti-vaxxers: when you'd rather have a dead child than an autistic one.
  6. Repression of Christianity was off and on depending on who was calling the shots at the time, but Islam and especially Judaism were constantly kept under heel. When the mass emigration of Jews from the Soviet Union to Israel occurred the Israeli authorities were distraught to find that the “Russian Jews” were almost completely unfamiliar with basic concepts of Judaism due to state repression.

    Give it to Bild.
  9. Slavery is one thing, but segregation wasn't over legally until 1970 and was still enforced into the 90's in some areas. There are plenty of people still alive from when this sort of thing was normal and accepted and they're passing it on to the younger generations. I'd give it a century or two before things work themselves out assuming the country still exists that long.
  10. We need to set up a program where Europeans live in the American South for a month or so to fully grasp the nature of life in America. I've personally seen cops pull up to a Black family in grocery store parking lot and tell them to leave and never come back “for their safety”. Things like this happen all the time and go unnoticed; the only reason this story got hyped up is because it happened in a place sheltered White liberals would notice.
  11. Most likely they were being obnoxiously loud and disruptive as Blacks are known for and then the White workers reacted with the cowardice White Americans are known for rather than just handling it rationally.
  12. You must have some pretty pansy smokers up there then. Down here folks would trade their children for a pack if they could.
  13. As someone who comes from a family of chainsmokers I don't think it's draconian enough.
