I hope you said the title in your best Arnold Schwarzenegger voice. The HATE CRIMES (there I said it) perpetrated against the Sikh community of Wisconsin brought about a whole slew of public figures trying to be the moral sphere’s Arnold Schwarzenegger – indirectly of course. Below is a compilation of the oblivious.
New York can sleep easy – no white people were killed in the recent white supremacist attack on a Wisconsin Sikh temple, only brown people died. PHEW! This is a breath of fresh air for a state that hosts a relatively large, but absolutely safe, Sikh community. “Bleeding from his wounds, Murphy waved off fellow officers running to his rescue and sent them instead to tend the wounded in the sanctuary.” Wow, you mean like the call of duty says to do? What a hero for not dying of non-fatal wounds!
“Criminals, terrorists, and other mentally ill people” according to Mayor of the World Bloomberg. You see, it’s not racist-filled hate that fuels killings by criminals and terrorists, but mental illness. And it’s not a hate crime if you’re crazy, amiright? (For the record, I am in full support of British-style gun laws … and also for the record, the second amendment is about military organization.)
Story 2b: ARM EVERYONE
This one doesn’t even need commentary, it’s so stupid. I’m sure that God (Pat Robertson says he’s the same everywhere, and that atheists are to blame) included ‘right to bear arms’ in all the religious law.
“Today, we are all American Sikhs,” according to Valarie Kauer, a Stanfard Law School, Harvard Div School, Yale Law School graduate. That’s right – don your ignorant turban and grow a beard my pasty friends, because your white privilege allows you to transmutate into minority groups whose skin color doesn’t allow them to empathize with white people. “If we really want to unite in response to this national tragedy, we need to know whom we are embracing.” Wow, why don’t you go ahead and pour on the fake sentiment a little more. Before I feel bad for you, can you update your Wikipedia page brown people? Someone email me the next time the headline “Today, we are all white people” gets used.
