Twittering Up A Race Row

Public Shaming lists Twitter users who post hate speech and racism. The link will take you to a list of people who made appalling comments the murder in Woolwich earlier this week.

One Twitterer, @charliehiggs, expressed herself by saying "Not all Muslims are terrorists, but all terrorists are Muslims."   Which may seem perfectly correct if you're British, stupid, and have no idea of world history or politics.  Briefly then, Apart from Anders Breivik, IRA, ETA, ISYF, UDA, UVF, FARC, Shining Path, Adam Lanza, and the list goes deplorably on and on and on.

I presume that some of the other people listed in this Public Shaming article have either removed or hidden their accounts, or have taken down the offensive tweets after receiving a public backlash against their comments.

    Will they be also doing public shaming for all the incendiary remarks by religious leaders?

  2. Probably not, although speeches made by religious leaders are normally more widely reported on by the mainstream media and thus open to comment and criticism.

    I'm think more along the lines of the C4 undercover exposure of radicalisation at mosques. Strange how the police went after C4 and not the preachers.

    It's sad to see a culture of self-censorship back home where to even discuss some things has you labelled a 'hater'. The antidote for speech you hate is more speech, not less. Let the idiots argue their corner and we'll argue ours.

    Anyhows, peace out. Keep up with the diet.
