This gratuitous racial slur, “towelhead”, comes from a supposedly moderate/ liberal blog.
The people who have sold us a generational “cultural conflict” against the towelheads start prattling about “racism.”
The author then foams at the mouth about the effontery of UAE thinking they can use their money to “buy the west.” Oh dear, the great big UAE is threatening the poor, defenseless USA, what will we do? This sounds like a paranoid John Bircher looking for commies under his bed. Someone needs a reality check.
Make that two reality checks. First, for fearing the awesomely powerful UAE will envelop America in their protoplamsic terrorist capitalist goo or whatever it is he’s shrieking about. Second, for not even dimly realizing the US has been doing this sort of thing to other countries for decades. I guess exploitation of foreign markets is allowable only if the home team is doing it.
