There are times in life when the surreal overtakes--no, better make that eradicates--reality. This, I have to say is one of them. For, along with including "Nazis" as a new victim group against whom "hate crimes" are perpetrated, the Toronto Police (the same constabulary that is supposedly labouring mightily to build a "hate crime" case against Salman Hossain, an effort which should more or less have been a slam-dunk) have identified a new "victim group"--and, no, I'm not making this up; I couldn't possibly make it up, even in my most fevered, diaboloical imaginings: the "non-Jewish shikshe."
I'd be remiss if I didn't point out that said category is a tautology, since a "shiksha," the somewhat perjorative Yiddishism for "chick Gentile," obviously can't be Jewish, and thus has no need for a superfluous "non-Jewish" modifier. Be that as it may, it is difficult to know precisely what to make this new category. Blazing Cat Fur and Five Feet of Fury both have some thoughts on the subject of "Shiksaphobia" ("Shiksagate"?). As for me, I have to say that this report--and Ceej reaction to it--has left me, for once, completely and utterly gobsmacked.
My question: Just who is behind this alleged shiksa "hate" incident? A spurned Hasid? An Elder of Zion? An Official Jew?
Who, dammit, who, had a hate-on for a mangiacake girl (the Italian version of "shiksa")? ("Mangiacake": now there's a category that'll never show up as a victim group in a police "hate crime" report.)
Update: Let's blame it all on Barbara Hall. (h/t BCF)
Update: A real quandary for the cops--what happens when a "victim" straddles two "victim group" categories?
The police do not know what to do
If a shiksha’s a Nazi, too.
Does the “Nazi” trump “shiksa”
In a “hate crime” conviction
Or is “shiksa” the victim beaucoup?
Update: Yes, it's obvious but it needs to be said: When everything has been deemed a "human right" (excepting the most critical right--the right to free expression), the concept becomes a horse's patoot. When everyone has been declared a "victim" (excepting the wicked white "hegemon"), ditto.
