Dear “Moderate” Muslims starting your pathetic post-Paris hashtags,
I’m done. If you’re looking for meaningless Instagram pictures, lit-up buildings, or memes filled with platitudes, leave now. If you’re looking for generic comments like “prayers to the families” and “we must be united!” leave now. If you’re looking for a “safe space,” you’re about to get nard-kicked, so I suggest leaving immediately. Okay? Okay.
The Paris attacks were the kind of awful that should enrage all 0f humanity. And that’s okay. We should be angry. Politically incorrect as it may seem, our anger should be directed squarely at Islamic terrorists and any of their apologists. Unfortunately, there are far more apologists than anyone wants to acknowledge.
Hours after over one hundred and fifty innocent people were slaughtered, the online Muslim community pivoted toward recruiting Islamic sympathy with hashtags “TERRORISM HAS NO RELIGION” and “#MuslimsAreNotTerrorists.” I threw up a little. Then I gathered myself, wiped my mouth and got to work.
Sure, they claimed “offense” at the heinous acts, but for them, the pressing issue was making sure their religion remained under the umbrella of “tolerance.” I’ll get into the intellectual disingenuous nature of said hashtags below, but first, let me issue some digital bitch-slaps.
Now is not the time for your pathetic self-pity party, you social justice jihadists.
Nobody is saying all Muslims are terrorists. But Muhammad, (terrorism be upon him) was (watch my comprehensive video Jesus vs. Muhammad). Therein lies the problem, therein lies the required suspicion of anyone who claims to follow him. But don’t take my word for it…
@scrowder Why do you blame Muhammad? If you blame muhammad the same thing you blame Muslims. Because we are followers. Remember that !!

Twitter was littered with claims from Muslims that they “feared for their safety.” One woman claimed she was on an airplane wearing a hijab, and people “tensed up” and she felt “really unsafe.” She has since deleted those tweets (read the room, sweetie) but I pulled similar tweets from the litany, available below.
It's so sad that every time something like this happens, girls with hijab suddenly become a target for ignorant racist people ?

the same people who are saying "muslims aren't terrorists" wud be the same people to get nervous if they saw a woman with a hijab on a plane

You know who I feel bad for? Not the women wearing a hijab. Not Muslims on Twitter who are like, really offended at anti-Islamic tweets and who can’t seem to turn off their computers, while simultaneously spewing ungodly stupidity across the internet…
No, I feel bad for the hundreds of French civilian hostages who were shot one-by-one as their friends and family members were forced to watch, helpless to act, knowing they were next to die.
Hashtag that, bitches.
This is the cycle now: we put “hurt feelings” of other self-marginalized minority groups on the same playing field as the brutal torture and murder of innocent civilians.
Sure there are “moderate” Muslims who choose not follow Muhammad’s teachings (they’re usually imprisoned by the hardline Muslims, by the way). And of course they deserve the same freedoms the rest of us do –well wait, only if they’re willing to renounce any Islamic/Sharia law of any kind and entirely submit to their country’s secular and/or Christian legal system – but the Muslims who are trying to pivot the focus to their self-victimization are no different than the spoiled, entitled Mizzou protestors (read Mizzou Student- I’m Tired of First Amendment Rights…).
To place demands for tolerance amidst perceived slights over the priority of eradicating Islamic evil is asinine. You’re the religious equivalent of a college liberal demanding a “safe space.” Don’t believe me? See my tweet below, where your entire hashtag was trolled. Hard. Spelling errors and all.
Hey, friends in #MuslimsAreNotTerrorist. What are really think we need are some 'safe spaces' in Europe right now. RT if you agree!

That’s right. Over a hundred and twenty people favorited/retweeted the idea of Muslim-only safe spaces.
Islam is not a race but an expressly prescribed religious and political ideology. One that demands violence of its ardent supporters. Leftism is a prescribed ideology that demands the tolerance of any “marginalized minorities,” be it perceived or otherwise.
When it came to calling our enemy “Islamic terrorists” the left refused.
When it came to placing the security of its own, free people over that of Islamic, Syrian refugees, the left refused.
When the Muslims demand sympathy in claiming to be falsely maligned… the left immediately obliges. Just read President Obama’s latest statements to see how grave the situation is.
Only this isn’t an attack on “all of humanity” and we don’t all share the same values. This was an attack on the innocent people of France because they adhere to different values than those in Islam.
The encroaching, anti-freedom Islam and today’s political left is an unholy alliance that could ultimately destroy freedom. Forever.
We need to identify our enemy. Yes, that requires some uncomfortable decisions, and judgments. “Moderate Muslims,” that means you. Don’t feel sorry for yourselves, distance yourselves. Help the rest of the free world unite.
Condemn Islamic terrorists and any Islamic country harboring them. Condemn any Islamic country that forces women to cover their faces, executes gay people or punishes converts. It is your job to clean house, not to feel sorry for yourselves, but to fundamentally change the way Islam interacts with the free world today. Or aid in its destruction.
To everyone else who considers themselves “progressive” these attacks are a line in the sand. You can be on the side that disarms citizens, demands “safe spaces,” justifies Islamic oppression and bans free speech..
… or the side of Liberty. With a line this stark, there is no in between.
Hashtag that, bitches.
Send your angry hate-tweets to @SCrowder and I’ll be sure to let you know why I don’t care.
