Virtue Signalling

From episode 126

22:30 “What time does your kebab shop open?”. Is this racist or just stereotyping? Is it actually a compliment? The Fist argues that it is harmless stereotyping but the people complaining have insulted kebab shop owners by saying kebab shop owning is derogatory.

From episode 99

17:49 Richard King describes virtue signalling as a trickle down model of social change which is as ineffective as trickle down economics.

From episode 91

46:25 People claim to be tolerant but probably, they just don’t care. The secret of Father Brown illustrates this. The bad brother killed the good brother and assumed his identity. In modern times, when Margaret Thatcher died, the people who said don’t celebrate the death of Osama Bin Laden, were happy to dance on her grave. The same applied when Hirsi Ali was vilified by “Muslim Feminists”. A poem by Yeats “The Second Coming” contains the lines “the best lack all conviction while the worst are full of passionate intensity”.
