It's more like painting Muslims in Indonesia as the same as Muslims in Saudi Arabia

And that's where the obvious racism is, people talk about "the Muslim world" as if that's really a homogenous group

He wants to expand it to the whole country as well.

My old landlord (a Filipino immigrant who's lost family under sketchy allegations of drug use) used to say that he feared an event like this that would give Duterte a doorway to martial law and outright fascism. Looks like he was right on that one.

Trump of all people should be for drugs. He's a businessman after all.

Both countries are Muslim and they both are ****. It's racist of you to not get that it's religion and not race but I don't care as long as you acknowledge their ****tines. FYI, they're different races. So race isn't actually a common thread. Religion is though. Iirc Chula thinks Islam is a race.

Morrissey keeps it 100!


https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/...orism-response

Quote:
The claim that politically correct leaders routinely refuse to mention Islam when referring to terror attacks carried out by people holding a violent interpretation of the religion is common on the far-right. In recent years, many politicians have acknowledged the role of such an ideology once it has been confirmed, while also stressing that it is alien to the vast majority of the religion’s adherents.

“In modern Britain everyone seems petrified to officially say what we all say in private,” the singer wrote on his Facebook page. “Politicians tell us they are unafraid, but they are never the victims. How easy to be unafraid when one is protected from the line of fire. The people have no such protections.

“Manchester mayor Andy Burnham says the attack is the work of an ‘extremist’. An extreme what? An extreme rabbit?”

Criticising the prime minister, he claimed that “her own life is lived in a bullet-proof bubble, and she evidently does not need to identify any young people today in Manchester morgues”.

The musician added: “Also, ‘will not break us’ means that the tragedy will not break her, or her policies on immigration. The young people of Manchester are already broken - thanks all the same, Theresa.”
Right on Morrissey!!!
