When speaking to my best friends today, I learnt about this ‘Punish A Muslim Day’ poster that had been making its way around social media. My first reaction to hearing this was to laugh. Not in the ‘haha, those bloody Muslims are getting what they deserve’ way, but in a ‘haha, this is a shit 4chan op’ way. But one of my friends, who still wears a hijab, shared stories with me about the spike in abusive behaviours towards Muslims.
I don’t feel as though I need to reiterate this here because we’re all adults, but don’t be a dick. It is your right to not like a religion or an ideology or whatever. But when you assault or are verbally abusive towards someone who hasn’t done anything to warrant, it just makes you a piece of shit. Simple. Now back to this poster.
PUNISH A MUSLIM DAY
3RD APRIL 2018
They have hurt you, they have made your loved ones suffer. They have caused you pain and heartache. What are you going to do about it? Are you a ‘sheep’ like the vast majority of the population? Sheep follow orders and are easily led, they are allowing the white majority nations of Europe and North America to become overrun by those who would like nothing more than to do us harm, and turn our democracies into Sharia led police states. Only you can help turn this thing around, and only you have the power. Do not be a sheep!
First off, this is all too predictable. It’s like these guys went on /pol/ and copied a thread here and there, then pasted it all together to create this poster. In fact, I guess the whole thing could be a crappy April Fool’s Day prank, but I’ve heard that it’s been making the rounds for awhile.
Also, that point system is just laughable. 10 points for verbally abusing a Muslim? 250 for torturing using electrocution? 2500 bloody point for nuking Mecca? Seems like that should be worth a lot more points. It’s just ridiculous. And the poster says there are rewards. What are the rewards?
I don’t think it’s real at all. I’ll eat my words if it is, but just seems like either a stupid scaring tactic or a prank. If I’m wrong, apparently England is going to go through some sort of purge tomorrow, but I very much doubt it.
Oh, and Happy Easter to everyone. I bought a chocolate egg today, heavily discounted of course, and I’m going to enjoy it right now. I hope everyone had a lovely weekend, and got to spend it with friends and family.
