Remember "Punish a Muslim Day"? The day where no Muslims were punished, but far-left activists and politicians went along with the story anyway, because it fits their "Islamophobia" agenda? Well now there’s another one. It’s called "Punish a Muslim Day 2" – and yes, it’s just as fake as the first day.
Take a look at the letter that’s doing the rounds on Twitter:
Everything about this screams "obvious fake." The upbeat language, the exclamation! The obviously smug and sarcastic tone. What "Islamophobe" would say "You’re awesome!" to those who "participated" in the last event?
It goes on to say,
"I know there weren’t that many of you and your commitment was deliberately ignored by the media, but the seed has been planted, and y’all know how big things can grow from the small."
First off, this plays into the stereotype that rednecks are racist hillbillies. “Y’all”? Nope. I’m not buying it.
Secondly, nobody participated in the first Punish a Muslim Day. Nobody was punished. Nobody engaged in this because the "Islamophobic" population of the West neither have an irrational fear of the religion, or actively go out and hurt Muslim people. The people who actually hurt Muslims in the street because of a hatred for Islam are so few and far between that they are, statistically, zero.
The letter goes on to give punishment suggestions that read like something from the Saw movie franchise. The writer encourages people to donate a certain amount of money per punishment, suggesting a £50p charitable donation to spit in the face of a Muslim, an £8 donation to dig up a Muslim’s corpse, a £16 donation to drill into the head of a Muslim or chop off a limb, and £128 to assassinate a Muslim politician, actor, or other significant person, and put their head on a pole.
This is beyond ridiculous. I shouldn’t even have to write an article debunking this lunacy, but I know the left will jump on it. And soon enough, Muslim politicians will be receiving fake letters and crying racism.
The inconsistencies in this leaflet are either the result of the sheer stupidity of the writer, or confidence and complacency as a result of politicians and activists being willing to accept frauds like this, no matter how ludicrous.
Is this America, or is it British? Brit’s don’t say ‘Y’all’, but the currency is written in Pound Sterling. The acts of violence are not only gruesome, but play into stereotypes that the fake "patriotic" Twitter accounts like Barry Stanton writes about. Spit in the face of a Muslim? Burn the Qur’an? Assassinate a Muslim and display their head on a pole? This is the work of a smug leftist who sees anyone who cares about religious extremism, hatred, and violence, as a knuckle-dragging, bone-headed racist.
I must also add that no Islamophobe would ever call the Qur’an the "Holy Quran," or refer to a mosque as a "Masjid."
So, who wants to bet than July 24, 2018 will go by just like any other day of the year?
I bet you it will be a fairly normal, drizzly, grey Tuesday afternoon, and Muslims will go about their business as they would normally.
