So this is Rod Liddle in the Spectator (apparently the *leading* magazine of the UK right), writing about how it's SO difficult to avoid being racist.

Let's talk about Rod Liddle's own history, since its not that well known.
In 2010, Rod Liddle blamed black people for "the overwhelming majority of street crime, knife crime, gun crime, robbery and crimes of sexual violence in London"

When asked to back up his claim, he couldn't. PCC ruling…
The Spectator published the PCC ruling and an apology on its website, but seems to have deleted it now. I guess they really care about accuracy…
In 2013, Rod Liddle had to apologise for using the phrase "black savages"…
This is the best story about Rod Liddle history of anti-racism.

In 2010 there was talk of making Rod Liddle as editor of the Independent (don't ask). A group of us were lobbying against this.

We found out that Liddle used a Millwall football forum with the username 'monkeyfc'
(Sorry, it was: monkeymfc).

In 2010, Rod Liddle admitted using this username and admitted to a few 'inflammatory' (read: racist) comments, to the Mail on Sunday

(story now deleted, mysteriously)…
(sorry, the story is not deleted! It just didn't show up for me earlier)

This is what the Mail wrote on Rod Liddle:
Liddle wrote: "There's thousands of organisations catering exclusively to black and asian minorities. **** 'em, close them down. Why do blacks need a forum of their own? As a power base and cash cow for ****s and in order to perpetuate the myth of widespread discrimination."
Liddle denied making racist comments, saying that others sometimes logged in under his account and posted comments with his username.

Oddly though, we couldn't find any comments complaining about others doing this, though. Must be an oversight.
BUT we did find DOZENS of racist/sexist comments made by 'monkeymfc' on that Millwall site.

We asked Rod Liddle if he had made these comments, and how hackers had gotten his password. He didn't respond…
These comments by 'monkeymfc' included:

"Someone kick her in the cnt."

"Fcking outrageous that you can’t smoke in Auschwitz."

"the correct term would be ni**ermeat, rather than wogmeat? You’ve got to get your terminology correct."

"Semi-house trained Muslim savages"
Rod Liddle never explained to us how these comments ended up being posted under his username. Odd, right? You would think he would want to clear up his name, given he is SO opposed to racism.
Anyway those are the facts. I'll leave you to decide about how anti-racist Rod Liddle is
And what does it say about the Spectator that it has a column for human excrement Rod Liddle to write regularly? And these people love to lecture others on anti-racism.
Oh I almost forgot Rod Liddle's finest hour.

"ROD LIDDLE, former editor of Radio 4’s Today programme, was arrested on election night after allegedly punching his pregnant girlfriend. "…
