Fresh Off Muslim Terror Attack, NYC Launches Ad Campaign to Fight “Anti-Muslim Rhetoric”

Posted by on Sep 27, 2016 at 7:53 am

Because so-called “anti-Muslim rhetoric” is the problem, not maniacal Muslims setting off bombs in Manhattan.

We’ve reached peak bizarro world here, folks.

New York City kicked off a social media advertising campaign on Monday to combat negative perceptions of Muslims and counteract increasing instances of threats and violence, officials said.

Showing an array of photographs of Muslim men and women, the campaign reads “I am Muslim. I am NYC”, according to the New York City Commission on Human Rights.

The campaign is aimed at addressing negative depictions and rhetoric, officials said.

You know what’s a negative depiction? Guys leaving pressure-cooker bombs in Manhattan.

Anti-Muslim sentiment has been playing a major role as the U.S. presidential race has heated up. Republican nominee Donald Trump claimed he saw thousands of people cheering after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks and has called for shutting down mosques and banning Muslims from certain countries from entering the United States.

In New York, an Afghan-born man is accused of wounding 31 people in a bombing on Sept. 17 that authorities called a “terrorist act”. The suspect had embraced militant Islamic views, authorities say.

What’s with the quotes around  terrorist act? IT WAS A TERRORIST ACT.

“Now more than ever, it is important for every New Yorker to stand united as one city and reject hate and violence,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said in a statement announcing the ad campaign.

Oh, shut the fuck up.

“In New York, everyone deserves to be treated with respect. Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Sikh, Hindu, agnostic and atheist — it doesn’t matter,” he said. “We are all New Yorkers and we all deserve to live safely and free from hatred or discrimination.”

Remember that last time “anti-Muslim rhetoric” left shrapnel in 31 New Yorkers out on a Saturday evening? Yeah, neither do we.

    It was the NY Times that ran an article bemoaning how said it was that the massacre of 49 people in Orlando by a Muslim shithead had “ruined Ramadan” for Muslims in NYC.

    Yet another reason to boycott NYC until there is “regime change.”

    PS: Why isn’t DeBlasio in jail?

    The mall attack out in Washington State got totally flushed down the memory hole.
    Media maggots said “Latino” or “Hispanic male” until yesterday when it was revealed he was originally from Turkey but had obtained U.S. citizenship.
    Remember when Hanoi Heinz Kerry said the media should stop covering workplace violence attacks?
