Barbara Kay: Sometimes a shower is just a shower. Even at Auschwitz

The refugee crisis in Europe is having the effect of peeling back the thin veneer of politeness that oils the wheels of civic reciprocity. Fear is making everyone jumpy: There are so many of “them”; where will they all go? How will this affect “us”? And then there is the very real, and daunting problem of actually keeping track of people as individuals, as the waves keep coming.

    What the heck, a shower is a shower, right? On the other hand, not all showers are created equal.

    Something has to be done about Islamaphobia,UN has to step in as it is so bad in departure countries that masses seek to depart,stop Islamaphobia and hate in the middle east

      You’re in the wrong blog mate. We don’t believe in Islamophobia because in order to be phobic you have to have an irrational fear. What with the beheadings, the bombings, the murders, rapes and no go zones, most of us are quite rational in our hatred of Islam. That would be a Dutch name right? Way to protect your culture. If you’re Canadian I take it you’re a Liberal or a Dipper.

        I was being sarcastic note i wrote islamaphobia in the middle east,the departure countries,if Islam is the religon of peace why are they leaving such peace only to go to big bad Europe.

        • Clausewitz

          NP then. It’s just hard to gauge sarcasm with out the facial expressions, that’s why we use /sarc, or ;-)). Sadly we get our fair share of prog trolls here, so sometimes you never know. welcome to the blog.
