British Court Convicts Woman of Racism for Calling Woman from New Zealand “Australian”

I’m not sure when exactly accusations of racism became completely meaningless. It’s like trying to figure out when exactly the Roman Empire fell. We can’t agree on an exact date, but it’s hard to miss all the rubble.
Our latest Adventure in Racism comes from the UK, which has been trying to beat the US in the Politically Correct Olympics where everyone competes by claiming to the victim and demanding government intervention on their behalf until society collapses and everyone reverts back to a hunter-gatherer lifestyle.
Czech-born Petra Mills, 31, was found guilty of racially aggravated public disorder after yelling at neighbour in Chelsea O’Reilly, a dual British-New Zealand citizen who lived next door in Macclesfield, south of Manchester.
According to Fairfax New Zealand, O’Reilly told the court:
“She called me a stupid fat Australian b****. Because of my accent there can be some confusion over my nationality. She knew I was from New Zealand. She was trying to be offensive. I was really insulted. She said she would kill my dog. Bizarrely she then blew raspberries at me like a child.”
A sane society might fine a woman for threatening to kill a dog. A pathologically insane society fines a woman because she misstated the geographical origin of her target. How well is a Czech woman supposed to tell an Aussie and Kiwi accent apart?
Silence! Racism! Czech privilege!
Two officers told Macclesfield magistrates’ court that they had heard Mills use the word “Australian” during a drunken rant.
Mills agreed she had shouted, but denied she was being racist:
“I did not use the word ‘Australian’. I used to live with an Australian person. She was very nice.”
However, chairman of the bench Brian Donohue fined Mills 110 pounds (about $175) for racially aggravated public disorder and 200 pounds ($318) for assaulting a police officer during her arrest.
Australian is now a racial slur in the UK. This bout of politically correct insanity has been brought to you by the left. The left, it’s to us, what smallpox was to the Mayans.
