What do you do when a man is killed in the streets where you live? According to some wonderful humans, you call for the mass slaughter of all those who practice the same religion that the killers may practice!
There was a horrific attack today in Woolwich in southeast London. Two men attacked another man, who is believed to be a soldier, and then beheaded him with a machete. Literally, what the fuck.
It is being called a terrorist attack and it is said that they are Islamic extremists because someone told some guy who told his brother’s uncle who works for the BBC that they heard them shout “Allahu Akbar.” Well, ok. If you insist. Saying these things certainly won’t fan the flames in jolly old England…
Now, if you can take your attention away from the very alarming #BeliebersWantToBeYourSmileJustin hashtag trend, you will see “Allahu Akbar,” “EDL,” “Muslims,” etc. trending. Shit. This can’t be good…
Ah, the English Defense League! I knew they’d show up here. They’d like you all to take to the streets (and take to the streets to look for whom I wonder?). But I mean, who listens to those crazy EDL folks anyway?
Make a stand? Make a stand against WHO?
Hint: They would like you all to take to the streets and attack random people who you think are Muslim.
Hint #2: If you don’t know who is a Muslim, they would like you to assume it’s anyone with skin darker than your own.
Now, usually, I do a good job of picking out the majority of the absolute worst crap I find. But there was just SO MUCH, I had to be a little more picky this time…
I would like to pause for a second here and note that there seems to be a strong hatred for people from Pakistan, whom they call “pakis.” I can’t tell if they are just making the assumption this man is from Pakistan or they seem to think “paki” is a religion or if they think “paki” automatically equals “Muslim” or…wait….WHY AM I EVEN TRYING TO MAKE SENSE OF THEIR LOGIC.
These are some pretty terrible tweets, but if you want to see the REALLY HORRIBLE shit, you’re not going to find it on Twitter. Nope. Because you see, these heroic race crusaders who want to take to the streets and fuck shit up…were frightened of the blowback they were receiving from their racists words and deleted their tweets. But, sadly for them, you can’t run from something once it’s been posted on the internet…
No mass genocide of an entire population because of the actions of few men? WHAT’S WRONG WITH US!
“See I’m not racist! I just want to kick out the terrorists! How do we tell who is a terrorist? Why, that’s easy! We just kick out anyone who doesn’t look like me!”
And, hands down, my absolute favorite tweet of the bunch:
This is better than it has every right to be - I mean it is a short simple track of the Phoenix Wright and Gentleman - He does a lot better tracks but this one works surprisingly well for something so short.
