Creeping Sharia! 16, April 2012

Posted by thegulfblog.com in Random.

In England there is a small band of right-wing, racist, really rather unpleasant idiots called the English Defence League or EDL for short. Mostly they’re a group of football hooligans and other assorted folks with criminal records who like to bang on about how the UK has ‘gow’n to the dogs’ fostering an image of a UK full of spitfires, dragons, and white people cheerily getting along that never really existed. Indeed, it has recently transpired that they appear to have had some connections to the Norwegian murderer Breivik; all in all, a lovely bunch of people.

One of its founders, Tommy Franks, recently inadvertently started a Twitter craze with the following tweet:

welcome to twitter homepage has a picture of a mosque. what a joke #creepingsharia

Problem is, the picture on Twitter’s home page that many of you may have seen is this building…

…which the more perceptive of you will have realised is not a mosque.

What a burke.

But, happily, this has created a hashtag craze mocking the stupid Franks really rather wonderfully. Here are some of my favorites taken from a Guardian article:

  • Tommy Robinson is a anagram of Allahu Akbar #creepingsharia #nobodychecksanagrams Adam
  • Apparently, British high-school students are being coerced to learn algebra. Yet another example of #CreepingSharia! Ed Gerstner
  • I skipped breakfast this morning. Clearly fasting subconsciously. #CreepingSharia Eóghan
  • you have to take your shoes off before getting on a bouncy castle #creepingsharia Keith Watermelon
  • The sand from the beach has infiltrated my sandals #creepingshariaAsian Forum

Absolutely brilliant! Can’t stop laughing! And if we didn’t laugh, we’d cry at the sheer ignorance! The BDF may feel proud to be British, but the vast majority of British people are appalled by their beliefs, attitudes and behaviour.
