Further Proof That Words Have No Meaning

So over in the United Kingdom, you can send your favorite Brit a fake pile of (presumably non-steaming) poo. As a prank, gift, or whatever. Big deal. Here's the real screamer from the article, though:

But members of the English Democrats Party, which is campaigning for an English Parliament, questioned the stunt's legality.

...

"It appears to me to be threatening, possibly racist and without question bigoted. It's certainly offensive and possibly an offence."


Because, you know, it could offend the Welsh, who are apparently descended from dogs. Or made of poo. Or something.

It's good to know that "racism" has joined that category of words, such as "Fascism", which now only mean "that of which I disapprove for any reason".
