Sharia has nothing to do with freedom.

Okay, I decided to post something new because I just saw a video that pissed me off. Before I go into any detail, here's the video so you can watch yourself. To put this video into context first, this started with a couple of Muslims protesting some anti-Islam activist in Orange County, California, then a bunch of "racists" came along to defend her.

This video is supposedly exposing Islamophobia. Now, I might agree that these "racists" are protesting on behalf of xenophobia, but I do believe they're fighting for a solid, valid cause, even if it might be for all the wrong reasons. This video wrongfully demonizes the white people, calling them Islamophobes, for supposedly suppressing freedom, but is it freedom if everyone has to live under Sharia law?

Here are a few things both sides get wrong ...


Guy with megaphone: "Now live under our constitution and our bill of rights like everyone else!"

Arab guy: "I wish you knew how to follow the bill of rights."

Oh, is he following the bill of rights? Let's check it and see ...
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Let's see, judging by the first amendment, he has a right to free speech and peaceably assemble. He's not only following the bill of rights correctly, he's almost an embodiment of the first amendment!


Arab guy: "You don't have to eliminate the rights of Muslims." (At least that's what I think he says.)

Nobody's rights are being "eliminated". This whole protest is an exercise of rights more than anything.


Guy with megaphone: "Communists go home!"

What do communists have to do with any of this? Here's a reality check, the Soviet Union collapsed almost twenty years ago, Communism should no longer be a threat to you. I mean, unless you're being sarcastic by comparing Communism to Sharia.


Protesters: "Up, up, up with the people! Down, down, down with the racists!"

I love how they're making this an issue of race when race really has nothing to do with this. What if there were black people or other Arabs protesting with the "Islamophobes"? Would that still make them racists then? And why chant, "Up, up, up with the people"? Who are "the people"? Everyone who isn't an evil, oppressive, racist wants Sharia imposed?

If this was a protest to instill the ten commandments into U.S. law, then absolutely no one would be throwing word "racist" around. This is how politically correct American society has become.
