The internet can advocate for change but at the same time in the hands of bigots it can start a war!
ADVOCACY is double edged sword, I advocate for better lives for the survivors of molestation and spousal abuse and for the enforcement of the rights so hard fought for by the disabled community, and the rights of the LGBTQ. Because as a lesbian trans woman who was molested as a child and is now permanently disabled, I have lived the horrors that discrimination to these communities can bring.
But at the same time groups like the Arian nation or KKK, will call the racist venom they spew advocacy for a whites only world. Some racist of the worst kind made a video declaring death to the prophet Mohammed, and dressed it up as the prerelease video for a major motion picture. The clerics in Cairo and Libya took righteous offense, not realizing it was nothing more than cheap ten minute YouTube that would never be anything more. The US consuls in Cairo and Libya were attacked, in Libya the consul general was killed as were four consul staff.
Yes this post is political and religious in nature, but at the same time it shows that bigots with the same access to the internet in the name of so called “advocacy” think they have the right to change the world through incitement to violence.
When the world is drawn into the defense of those doing nothing but their day to day jobs, those goverments involved cannot concentrate on the job of looking after the lawful non violent citizens who live with their own disabilities and problems every day.
I don’t normally agree with the ranting of violent mobs, but the Muslim protestors in Cairo are calling on the United States to make a law that declares the production of any video or movie that deliberately calls for the murder or genocide of any race or religion to be illegal and this I think is a good idea.
Until we can come to a level playing field where we can show the world we do not hate you for who you worship we hate those who murder and falsely claim that their god calls them to violence noting will ever get better. Today 4 families 4 spouses and small children will not see their parents ever come home again, those wives and husbands are going through hell and the problems that can last a life time caused by the loss of a parent are only just beginning for the children.
So to the bigots I would normally chastise you That’s ok though, because I’m sure unless that lecture was monosyllabic you wouldn’t get the point anyway. and yes as it has been discovered this video was made by an israeli proving that even in a country like israel there is division of belief and there are bigots and racists who call for death and violence based purely on the right to worship. The average israeli citizen has no problem with the rights of the muslim people to worship, the arguement is with those who twist Islam to justify violence against others and some how call it religion
I am a proud supporter of the right of Israel to be free and have the rights of a sovereign nation and defend those rights, but to the israeli bigot who made this video even others of the Jewish faith would stand against you in this matter for you are wrong now and always will be.
foote note since writing this it has been discovered the liar who made this move was not jewish he is an egyptian coptic christian who is a twice convicted felon who did time for meth dealing.
