Skip to comments.Victim mentality

Yesterday in this space I noted the news that the Toronto Police now include in their official list of "hate crime" victim groups the category of "Nazi". I mostly played it for laughs ("Nazi is the new black"), since if you took developments in the Demented Dominion too seriously your head would explode. However, my valiant comrade Ezra Levant dug down into the story a little deeper, and in particular the reaction of Book-Burnin' Bernie Farber, the head of the Canadian Jewish Congress. Mr Farber reacted to the news that the Nazis had joined the Jews as an officially recognized "victim group" by commenting as follows:
'How does Nazi fit into that,' questioned Bernie Farber, of the Canadian Jewish Congress, when the category was pointed out by the Town Crier.
'A Nazi can never be a victim but only a victimizer,' he said.
First: is it really surprising to Burny that another group has weaseled its way into the political class called "victim"?
Seriously, did Burny and the CJC architects and defenders of hate speech laws really think that they could maintain a monopoly over who could use these hate laws?

Steyn ping opportunity.
The left is crazy,
Thanks for the ping to this wonderful article! After I read it, I went to the CJC website to read the titles of their “items of interest”. What a HOOT! Boy, some of these leftist wingnuts are really dense, aren’t they?
(And thank heavens, brilliant Mark is on the side of the angels! He is such a treasure!)
Steyn doesn’t mean “blacks” here - he means “black” as in fashion color. It’s a standard joke - white is the new black, yellow is the new black... in fact - none are ever the “new black”...
No he is making a double entendre, he means it to be taken both ways.
