I do consider it’s errors based on Left ideology. I would suggest any ‘fairly standard definition’ of racism would be exclusively to do with race, hence the word. It is part of Leftist philosophy to expand definitions such as ‘racism’ to include more people and actions in the net. Such usage of the word ‘racism’ is a weapon because, up until now, it’s charge has carried much weight.
For global Leftists to wish to include nationalism in the definition is an attack on nationalism. It has very little to do with race and many people see quite clearly the people and the reasons for the attempted shift in the definitions.
The definition, as well as being watered down, is also clearly subjective which is a facet of the relativism of Left wing philosophy. There is no God, there is no truth, there is just power and the power decides on reality and what words like racism mean and who should be considered racist. This smacks of the novel 1984. The question is whether to support the people, through power, who attempt to redefine words (such as marriage) for political gain and create an authoritarian groupthink or are you going to resist that and hold fast to truth. That is, in this case, racism is to do with race and it is wrong and dangerous to redefine words to fight political battles.
Moreover, because there is no God, the Left attempt to redefine morality in human terms such as wrongness being dependent on someone else’s subjective claims of insult, exclusion and ridicule etc. In Leftist philosophy this is usually reserved for only some specially identified groups such as (in this case) non whites, which is ironically, totally racist (using the long held real definition of the word).
To complete the circle, these ideologically designated special groups invariably do claim insult in order to wield the weapon of ‘racism’ against political opponents. This is so damaging not just to justice and sanity, but to race relations and societal relations in general.
My belief is that the stated definition is either ignorant or in bed with Leftist ideology. Either way it does not endear me to the people who signed off on it.
Whether you agree or not is really immaterial to the discussion since you are asking me for my views on the subject and I am responding. I am not asking for yours, with respect.
