racism part of it. Is he implying that they're trianed to be racist so that they'll see the "enemy" as less than them?
I woulda thought they wouldn't be allowed to openly preach racism.
That being said, had I heard his speech in person I would've clapped, and probably with a lump in my throat.
Sure man - people just like you are not your enemy - you would not not fight them. So, in order to foster public support for a war against any given
nation that nation, and its people are demonised. They are portrayed as evil, as lesser, as inferior, as evil, as tyranny, as terrorists - and every,
single time the public just falls for it, over and over and over again.
That is racism - seeing Iranians as terrorists, Iraqis, Muslims, Islam, as terrorists or evil is racist. They are no more than you are as a while
This is why so frequently throughout history peoples who have lived peacefully side by side, sometimes for centuries, can wake up one morning and feel
an eternity of deep seeded hatred towards their neighbors or friends - incited by political propaganda.
You are all victims of it.
Pure and simple bud - hope this makes it clear.
