I’m not racist but…..(daddy state compassion 101)


Taxi customers asking for white drivers, says Nat MP
Christchurch taxi companies are fielding calls from customers requesting white drivers, a National MP says.
Nicky Wagner says she has spoken to several taxi drivers and company owners since the brutal slaying of Afghan driver Abdulrahman Ikhtiari earlier this month. "Several said they had people call who only wanted white drivers," she said. "You can say it's a racist comment or say there's a perception by the public that ethnic drivers don't know the city as well so they end up driving longer to get to their destination."

Or you could go back to your first comment and decry it for the utter racism it actually is Nicky rather than try and justify that mindset as merely a perception? I’m not sure if the right response to the brutal slaying of a recent migrant taxi driver in Christchurch is to provide possible justifications as to why people dislike migrant taxi drivers.

At least those in Christchurch Central were intelligent enough not to vote that witch in.

Ironic that after posting antisemtic garbage the last few days, Bomber now wants to bitch about racism.
Wish he would shut up...

Always makes me laugh when people decry anti-Israeli views as anti semetic. They are 2 totally different view points, obvious to anyone not blinded by the spin machine forever using the Holocaust as an excuse to steal other peoples land and put a Holocaust on them.

I use taxis occasionally and I have to admit that I feel safer with a european driver.
I recall not so long ago some foreigner driving me to a friends place and he kept his eyes on me all the time. Got totally lost and I felt very uncomfortable.

That's right DJ, you guys aren't anisemetic, you're just pro Hamas/Nazi and hold the Jewish state to a standard no other country is held to...

Demopaths are people who use democratic language and invoke human rights only when it serves their interests, and not when it calls for self-criticism or self-restraint. Demopaths demand stringent levels of human “rights” but do not apply these basic standards for the “other” to their own behavior. The most lethal demopaths use democratic rights to destroy democracy.

Demopaths differ from civil-society free-riders; the latter enjoy more rights than they grant to others simply out of selfishness or laziness. Demopaths are fundamentally hostile to granting others’ rights, and secretly despise the values of civil society (which demands that they tolerate and respect others). Instead of coming along for the ride, they want to sink the boat.

Demopaths use the jargon of civil society and human rights to convince their targets. Through this progressive discourse, demopaths exploit on people eager to believe that civic values can resolve the problem. Sometimes demopaths are completely hostile to the cultures in which they live, and manipulate human rights as a Trojan horse to enter the city and sack it.


For anyone who's not too far gone, it's worth reading the whole thing.

You're right, it's not.
That why, if you read the article, you will note that she does not provide justification as to dislike migrant taxi drivers.

In fact, she spells out how tough it is for them.

If you are going to bash someone for just being a National MP, best get something that will actually stick.

Ahh it's always the anonymous ones isn't it - Anon did she or did she not say ""Several said they had people call who only wanted white drivers," she said. "You can say it's a racist comment or say there's a perception by the public that ethnic drivers don't know the city as well so they end up driving longer to get to their destination." - simple enough question Anon, did she or did she not say that?

... don't you love how far apologists for Israel will go, it's our fault for criticising a brutal regime that has crushed a people disgustingly for 4 decades because we hold Israel to a higher standard than others? Oh please this is so desperate it is a fucking joke. Grow up Anon.

Ah Bomber, how interesting that you go back just 40 years. That would be 1968. But as you know before the 1967 war the Palestinians had been "crushed" by Jordan for twenty years and were without basic rights that Israel had given Arab Israelis. There were no world-wide protests against Jordan or against the oil-rich Arabs who failed to provide effective charitable aid for their Palestinian brothers.

The vast majority of Arabs in Arab nations throughout the Middle East and North Africa are still without the rights enjoyed by Israeli Arabs.

Could you please direct us to your published protests again Arab vs Arab abuse?

If a woman was wearing, say, shorts and a tee-shirt would she be safe in the car of a muslim driver. I ask that in light of the 'speech' given by the senior muslim leader about 'uncovered meat and cats’.

If I were in that situation, knowing the views of many muslim men (and women as well perhaps) about western women and their values I would prefer an atheist/woman driver.

There can be many situations where someone will request (or demand) a certain preference, i.e. a woman doctor, a Maori WINZ case worker, English speaking cab driver.

Not just muslims of course, many catholics, sikhs, Brian Tameke followers ...... have some pretty weird ideas about sex in general and women in particular, makes me feel very unsafe, disrespected and insulted, I want the right to do all I can to avoid all contact with anyone with those views.

Would an openly homosexual person be expected to be driven by someone who believes they are going to burn in hell, would they be safe either physically or emotionally. You may be happy to show your ‘tolerance’ for those with anti-women views I am not. We are all entitled to dislike certain people and certain belief’s but to demand they be killed and preach hell is out of order, those with those views do not belong in any civilized society or New Zealand.

People should pass a test of suitability (question one - do you hate fags, question two-do you believe a women in shorts deserves to be stoned to death) before being granted a cab licence, my safety and being treated with respect is important to me.

Customers dislike some migrant drivers ??? I suspect that is true.

Some migrant drivers dislike (and worse) European customers - yep thats true as well.

Lets hope that great woman hating 'liberal' Charlie Chauvel and his boyfriend catch an Afgani cab and decide to have a snog and a wank in the back seat ....... now that could see some long overdue justice.
