Chock full of LOLs is the latest offering from Ralph Peters, a troglodytic New York Post columnist who manages to be wrong about everything. This time, he writes this funny-ha-ha columnabout the inhumanity of the people of Afghanistan:
These humanoid forms with which we must deal don’tall want or value the same things we do. They form different social aggregates and exchange goods and services within wildly different parameters (and exhibit hypocritical sexual tastes that diverge from procreative mandates – ask our troops about that).
Yeah LOL Afghans come from a different culture so they’re not human.
It’s not worth making actual points about this idiot — Daniel Larisonand Andrew Sullivanhave that covered — but when you have to write:
The point isn’t to argue that Afghans are inferior beings. It’s just that they’re irreconcilably differentbeings – more divergent from our behavioral norms than the weirdest crew member of the starship Enterprise.
It’s because you’re transparently a racist who enjoys making a fool of himself in public. I’m sure this guy was as insightful an intelligence officer as he swears he was.
