INOFFENSIVE COMMENTS OFFEND

New Zealand conservative Don Brash supports “an acceptance of democracy and the rule of law, religious and personal freedom and legal equality of the sexes”.

As a result, he’s now accused of racism.

UPDATE. The Volokh Conspiracy:

Brash’s critics’ remarks are far more anti-Muslim than anything he said. The critics imply that Muslims inherently reject “democracy and the rule of law, religious and personal freedom and legal equality of the sexes.” That is a far more severe indictment of Islam than anything in Brash’s speech.
