The United States, Canada, and Israel will not participate in a U.N. World Conference Against Racism in Geneva from April 20-25, known as Durban II, unless the final document is changed to drop all
references to Israel and its criticism of religion. Good! The United States and Israel walked out of the previous conference, held in 2001 in the South African city of Durban. Jan at African Crisis says:
Clint Eastwood , 79, apparently believes that political
correctness has rendered modern society humorless, and accuses
younger generations of spending too much time trying to avoid being
offensive, saying "I don't want to be politically correct." I'm not sure what the context was when Eastwood made his comments, but I'm guessing they had something to do with his latest film "Gran Torino."
No nationality or religion was spared Eastwood's movie Gran Tornio, and that may be part of the reason he was snubbed completely at the Oscars this year. Gran Torino may have been Clint Eastwood's last acting performance, and it was magnificent. It has long been tradition in Hollywood to honor the body of work for a legend like Eastwood -- but Eastwood isn't just any Hollywood actor. Nope, he has been known to vote Republican and to live by Conservative principles. Oh, the horror! And no, he's never been politically correct.
Unfortunately it's not just younger generations that have fallen in line with the politically correct crowd and it's not just in the United States. Islam in Action says:
This leads to segregation of religions, segregation of sexes, special treatment of those who commit honor killings and beat their wives and children. What do you say about that Clint??? I would love for Eastwood to write an article and say everything he wants to say, express all his beliefs, gripes, and wishes concerning this topic and this country.
