  • Muslims - a viral post

    While the media continues to indulge Donald Trump's dangerous Islamophobia, people like UK soldier Chris Herbert are on social media, dropping real truth.  Herbert wrote a Facebook post to shut down the prejudiced people who assume that he is prejudiced, and now that post has gone viral.  He makes a great argument against generalizations by sharing some generalizations of his own.

    Yes. A Muslim man blew me up, and I lost my leg.

    • A Muslim man also lost his arm that day wearing a British Uniform.
    • A Muslim medic was in the helicopter that took me from the field
    • A Muslim surgeon performed the surgery that saved my life
    • A Muslim Nurse was part of the team that helped me when I returned to the UK
    • A Muslim Healthcare Assistant was part of the team that sorted out my day to day needs in rehabilitation when I was learning to walk
    • A Muslim taxi driver gave me a free ride the first time I went for a beer with my Dad after I came home.
    • A Muslim doctor offered my Dad comfort and advice in a pub, when he didnt know how to deal with my medicines and side effects.

    Contrary to that,

    • A white brit spat in my girlfriends face for 'fucking a cripple when you could have me [him]'
    • A White brit pushed my wheelchair away from a lift so he could use it first.
    • A White brit screamed at my Dad for parking in a disabled bay when I was in the services coming home

    (Although, alot of people helped in my recovery! I dont hate white brits either! hahaha)
    Point is, fuck off.  I know who I dislike, and I know who I dont.  I know who I appreciate, and I know who I dont.  If you want to hate an entire race of men and women for the actions of a few dickheads feel free, but don't push your views on me, thinking I am an easy target because one douchebag decided it was my day to die.  Blaming all Muslims for the actions of groups like Daeshe and the Taliban, is like blaming all Christians for the actions of the KKK or Westboro Baptist Church.

    Get a grip of your lives, hug your family and get back to work.

    Mark Twain knew something about writing.  He also WROTE a good deal about writing.

      "With a hundred words to do it with, the literary artisan could catch that airy thought and tie it down and reduce it to a . . . cabbage, but the artist does it with twenty, and the result is a flower."


    Donald Trump has long been regarded as a political meatball, moreover, it is said that his high-volume speeches are delivered, even shouted, in a feral manner.  Mr. Trump announced the publication of his new book today.
