You Know Who’s Racist?

Legos. 

Lego accused of racism with Star Wars set

Austria’s Turkish community said the model was based on Hagia Sophia mosque in Istanbul and that the accompanying figures depicted Asians and Orientals as people with “deceitful and criminal personalities.”

The Turkish Cultural Community of Austria released a statement calling for Lego to apologise for affronting religious and cultural feelings.

The anger was provoked by “Jabba’s Palace”, a model of the home of Jabba the Hutt from Lego’s Star Wars product range based on the blockbusting series of science fiction films.

Jabba is the large slug-like creature who holds Han Solo captive in the film Return of the Jedi, and his palace is the setting for several crucial scenes, including using Princess Leia as his slave.

You know who else is a larger-than-life, slug like creature? The pedo-prophet. Maybe they’re on to something. Well, except that Islam isn’t a race, but aside from that, their argument may well be spot on.

    “Hagia Sophia mosque in Istanbul”

    You mean the Orthodox Christian patriarchal basilica, built by Byzantine Christians in 360 as an Eastern Orthodox cathedral and seat of the Patriarchate of Constantinople until it was captured and converted to a mosque in 1453 by crusading Muslims? Is that the one?

    Here is your typical liberal, Democrat Senators reply to the citizens of America when asked why Obama and the democrat party are giving F-16’s and M1-A1 tanks to Egypt and the Muslim Brotherhood, a terrorist organization that hates the United States and Israel. They are giving these weapons to Egypt on the premise of “HOPE” as she states in her reply.

    United States Senator Debbie Stabenow – Michigan
    Dear V****,

    Thank you for contacting me about Egypt. I appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts and concerns with me.

    As the people of the Middle East struggle for freedom and democracy, it is my hope that they will reject extremism and violence. This time of change can be an opportunity to build a more productive and peaceful relationship between the United States and Middle Eastern countries.

    I understand your concerns about U.S. aid to Egypt. Should legislation related to this issue come before the U.S. Senate for a vote, I will keep your views in mind and continue to support peace efforts in Egypt and throughout the Middle East.

    Thank you again for contacting me. Please continue to keep me informed about issues of concern to you and your family.
    Sincerely,
    Debbie Stabenow
    United States Senator
