So-Called 'Anti Sharia' Marches

Anti-Muslim rallies across US denounced by civil rights groups - The Guardian
Quote:
A wave of anti-Muslim rallies will sweep nearly 30 cities across America on Saturday, in a move by far-right activists that has drawn sharp criticism from civil rights groups and inspired counter-protests nationwide.

The so-called “anti-Sharia” rallies have been organized by Act For America, which claims to be protesting about human rights violations but has been deemed an anti-Muslim hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. The planned demonstrations prompted security fears at mosques across the country and come at a time when hate crimes against Muslims are on the rise.

They were going to do that in Portland until the mayor said fuck no. Portland may be weird but it's a keeper... sometimes.

It's possible that in this case the SPLC is correct, but generally they lost all credit with me when they decided to classify liberal muslim reformer Maajid Nawaz as an anti-muslim hate preacher. If their classification is the only thing to go by to claim these groups are "hate groups", then fuck that.

I can't understand what they've got against Maajid Nawaz, either, but the fact they've got it spectacularly wrong with him doesn't alter the fact their overall track record is extremely good. I suspect that, since Maajid Nawaz is British they aren't as familiar with him as they are with American figures, and are thus susceptible to being influenced by his many critics.

To my mind, though, it's wrong to dismiss the SLPC simply because they've made one clear error of judgment.

They're not the anti-Sharia protesters. They look like Antifa, who were there to counter-protest. They're, more or less, far-left Anti-Fascists.

It was one of THEM who did this:

When's the anti-kitchen appliance march? These people know all about those government hidden microphones in their microwaves.

"Anti-Sharia(h) marches".

In other words, bigotry legitimized by pretending that a problem that doesn't exist does exist.

Something they accuse the left of doing all the time, which on certain issues, they are most definitely wrong. Funny how that works.

Man tells woman to back the fuck up or he'll "treat her like a man because that's what you want, right? Equal rights?" because she slapped at his phone.

And then they're SHOCKED I TELLS YA when violent rhetoric can result in violence in kind.

Use what someone has said as an excuse for your physical violence.
I bet you are that guy who stands in the back and throws bricks and then runs away.

Yeah, it's WAY better to use someone's religion or skin colour as an excuse for violence.

Not the explicit threat of getting the shit beaten out of you for slapping at some pencildick's phone.

No, violence never solves anything B-. However if you rely on it do not be surprised if it bites you now and then.
