Ugh.  
Anti-immigrant, assimilationist if-they-don't-pass-as-white-it's-their-fault rage-inducing xenophobic BULLSHIT warning.

Thanks, Ms. Moon. I loved The Speed of Dark, but now you're joining Harlan Ellison in the Box of Shame.

Anyone I recommended that book to? Unrecommended.

Via maevele.

ETA: Just emailed the Wiscon concom about her being a GoH next year, and how I am NOT okay with that in light of this. No idea if it'll accomplish anything, of course, but it does make me feel uncomfortable/unsafe (and I'm not Muslim, it's got to be a tiny tiny fraction of how she's hurting directly-affected folk) so.

Going off the Wiscon contact page, since I wasn't sure who to write to, I wrote to concom35 [at] wiscon [dot] info.

<ETA2 So apparently people with less fuzzy brains can parse more of that post than I can, and it's EVEN WORSE than I thought. Wow. Apparently Ms Moon thinks the European settlers here were happy community-builders who were welcomed with open arms and... assimilated... or something. Also that the Native people of this continent don't exist?

Two blocks from...
...edge of the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park, which actually *is* a Ground Zero for a nuclear bomb, there is a hotel, with a chapel inside.

A Christian chapel. Now, as you probably know, Japan is a predominately non-Christian nation, which was bombed (yes, it was the end of a war, and it wasn't terrorism) by a predominately Christian nation. And there's a chapel inside a building that, if I read the map right, is about 250meters or less from the edge of the Peace Park.

There's a church within 200 *feet* of the Jewish Center at Auschwitz.

19 assholes pulled off a major terrorist action, killing 3000, among whom were 30+ Muslims (NOT INCLUDING THE TERRORISTS). 19 assholes claimed by al-Qaeda. And for the sake of those 19, we should, as Americans, terrorize the Muslim-Americans, and turn this into a religious war?

If you want to argue, please visit my journal to do so. I'm including this comment in its own entry.
