A certain group, (with our kind of turn-of-mind), one day mused:
“It would seem that a proper reply to a xenophobe, who said to a foreigner, “Why don’t you go back to where you came from; you’re not welcome here,” would be for the one assaulted to say, “You would be welcome in my country.”
If you consider it a bit further, and you realize that the response lacks any meaningful substance, the xenophobe could then respond by saying, “Hell, I don’t care if I’d be welcome in your country or not, ‘cause I don’t want to go there – and apparently you don’t like it enough to stay there yourself.” (While the foreigner’s original response that I proposed, and which at first seemed fitting and irrefutable, upon further reflection crumbles.)
One man thought about this same scene, regarding how one part of some people’s brain/mind, believes other parts of it are asleep, deluded and all-in-all “unwelcome intruders.”
Chauvinism, for the ideas you hear uttered in your head, is the stuffing in the mattress upon which men so comfortably sleep.
At the end of a TV show, when the message appeared, “This program was pre-recorded,” one man thought: “Hell, my life was pre-recorded.”
