You know, this is why I scare my friends with the speaking in tongues and the "the end in nigh" sandwich-board. Because bigotry is not just for Jews anymore -- and never actually was.

Because bigotry is not just for Jews anymore -- and never actually was.

No indeed - you only have to read Tacitus on Islam to know that.

Reading Dr Dot's story is on one level horrifying - but on another level, inspiring. *No one* stood by the man who punched her in the face. Complete strangers rallied round to help. People like that vile man who hit her are, fortunately for us all, for our species, a small minority, not a majority.

The danger comes when bigotry is accepted as social norm: when the minority who will react violently have social approval for what they do.
