Hi Demsci,

Yes, precisely on all counts!

Tu Quoque is a criminal's favorite critical-thinking logical fallacy, because it pretends that merely by deflecting and evading the accusations, if one substitutes an example of an UN-related wrong, one can somehow hope to magically turn one of them into a right!

Even most small children understand that two wrongs don't make a right, but criminals try it anyway!

As for the "racism of lesser expectations" we see it used all the time by libertine "liberal" criminals to avoid having to say anything bad about islam.

Liberals are racists: they always assume that ONLY White Western people (including, of course, the Jews in Israel,) are INTELLIGENT enough to be guilty of being truly evil, while all their pet "People Of Colour" (including the "swarthy palestinians") being mentally inferior and all, just can't help being enslaved by their instincts and emotions into acting as violent animals when frustrated, the poor oppressed little dears, so the liberals will always indulge their crimes, much as one ignores the new puppy as it pees on the rugs.

So here's their interminably ongoing "narrative" (story):

"SO JUST STOP PICKING ON ALL THE THE POOR HELPLESS MENTALLY INFERIOR SWARTHY ANIMAL VICTIMS, YOU EVIL MENTALLY SUPERIOR WHITE BULLIES! YOU KNOW THEY'RE AT THE MERCY OF THEIR ANIMAL INSTINCTS SUCH THAT THEY JUST CAN'T HELP BEING VIOLENT WHEN CONFUSED, SO STOP BAITING AND CONFUSING THEM, YOU HATERS!"

Or, to put it more politely:

"There is no racist like an antiracist: That is because he is obsessed by race, whose actual existence as often as not he denies. He looks at the world through race-tinted spectacles, interprets every event or social phenomenon as a manifestation of racism either implicit or explicit, and in general has the soul of a born inquisitor.

These entrepreneurs of outrage suffer from a self-inflicted deliberate obtuseness, an obtuseness motivated by their desire to "maintain their rage" - a will to outrage. And this will precedes any object to which it might attach, and many people wait as if in ambush for something to feel angry about, pouncing on it with leopard-like joy (the leopard, so I was told in Africa, is particularly dangerous, for it kills for pleasure and not only for food).

Outrage supposedly felt on behalf of others is extremely gratifying for more than one reason. It has the appearance of selflessness, and everyone likes to feel that he is selfless.

It confers moral respectability on the desire to hate or despise something or somebody, a desire never
far from the human heart.

It provides him who feels it the possibility of transcendent purpose, if he decides to work toward the elimination of the supposed cause of his outrage.

And it may even give him a reasonably lucrative career, if he becomes a professional campaigner or politician: For there is nothing like stirring up resentment for the creation of a political clientele.

Antiracism is a perfect cause for those with free-floating outrage because it puts them automatically on the side of the angels without any need personally to sacrifice anything.

You have only to accuse others of it to feel virtuous yourself.

There is no defense against the accusation: The very attempt at a defense demonstrates the truth of it.

As a consequence of this, it is a rhetorical weapon of enormous power that can be wielded against anybody who opposes your views. It reduces them to silence."
