Anti-racism will be for the 21st century what Communism was for the 20th century


The French philosopher Alain Finkielkraut:
"But I think that the lofty idea of `the war on racism' is gradually turning into a hideously false ideology. And this anti-racism will be for the 21st century what communism was for the 20th century. A source of violence. Today, Jews are attacked in the name of anti-racist discourse." 

This contains both the very interesting interview with Alain Finkielkraut - a man of 1968 who has been mugged by reality - and his curious partial  retraction. Anti-racism doth make cowards of us all.

The blog that I am linking to is a very right-wing political blog but the interview is well worth reading. My blog is not supposed to be about politics but I think this  important and interesting interview deserves a wide audience.  Especially after the horrible killings in Norway at the weekend.
