“Muslims Demand Army Change Dress Code So They Can Wear Turbans and Beards”
This was on my Facebook this morning and I also got it as an email from my conservative brother several months ago, so I assume it’s making the rounds.
This BS hits people right in the terminally stupid part of their brain. It’s the army! Support our troops! Our glorious military, in which our forefathers fought and died to protect our freedom, is being taken over by Muslims! “Like” and “Share” if you think this is wrong!
Another pile of BS to scoop away. The man in the picture is a Sikh, not a Muslim, and the turban is part of their belief system. They are monotheists arising out of a Hindu milieu, are peaceful and don’t bother anybody.
Of course, the ignorant love to flounder around in blissful outrage. The first person killed after 911 was an American Sikh, whom the hothead shooter didn’t even know was not Muslim, never mind that vigilante cowboys shooting random brown people are simply murderers. In 2012, a right wing nut attacked a Sikh temple, killing 7, to save us all from Islam. Yet you have yet to hear of Sikhs seeking revenge for these injustices.
The truth matters-it can be a matter of life and death. It was a matter of life and death for the Sikhs killed because they were brown and wore turbans. Spreading hateful lies is not just evil, it is deadly.
The obvious agenda here is to make you hate/fear Muslims and support whatever love-bombing the powers-that-shouldn’t-be have planned for the future.
You can help fight lies; at the very least-DO NOT hit that “Like” or “Share” button and thereby spread the disease.
