Israeli MP Miri Regev is today's Cunt of the Day.
There have been violent demonstrations in Tel Aviv as protesters have taken to the streets to demand the deportation of African immigrants and asylum seekers. Yelling "Blacks out!" and reportedly assaulting people, there have been 17 arrests.
Just the other day these pages reported Israeli interior minister, Eli Yishai, talking about bleeding hearts who aren't willing to tackle the immigrants threatening the Jewish state and today the Huffington Post reports that Israeli MP Regev described "African migrants to the country as "a cancer in our body"" at a rally yesterday. Surely it is racist to say such things and she needs to be called out for it.
Does Israel have a right beyond other countries to call for the deportation of immigrants? Is it acceptable for Regev to call migrants a "cancer"? Are there protesters and politicians in Israel who missed history class AND irony 101?
Racism anywhere is just that and for an MP to say such things is absolutely fucking disgraceful. Regev, for inciting protesters with racist rhetoric, is a lock for today's Cunt of the Day.
Sponsored by people who are trying to get their heads around incoming International Criminal Court chief prosecutor Fatou Bensouda's comments to the BBC that war criminals "threaten to continue killing people unless arrest warrants are dropped". Is that called a lose lose situation?
