I’m in the middle of an exasperating argument on Facebook with my friend’s sister who, since Woolich, has been frequently posting videos and islamophobic comments.
Even with all the evidence presented to her on why this way of thinking is wrong, and the EDL, which is based on hooliganism, chavs and shit, she continues to post “accurate” videos about followers of Islam while basically condemning a whole group of people for the actions of a few. And she JUST. CAN’T. GET. IT. INTO. HER. THICK. SKULL. I even saw that she commented on a link saying that we should “bring back Hitler lol”. Yeah, and THEN what would happen to your mixed race son?
I think I owned her with “What can we do to help? All join a far right hate group that scaremongers, attempts to burn down mosques and provides a front for gratuitous racism up and down the country? If you want people to continue calling you a racist, by all means keep posting stuff like “up the EDL”.”
She then decided to rethink her racist options by researching other “parties”. May I recommend UKIP.
Moron. England is going to implode.
So a man just came at me in Consum and thrusted a clipboard under my nose. Something “semi-official” looking asking for support of a new centre for dumb people in Valencia.
I started to sign…and then saw the donaciones section. Mierda. I shrugged at him a bit to which he responded with “come, cambio”. Thought you were dumb, mate? By then I was too far in and felt bad. What if he was telling the truth? The Consum staff looked concerned when I handed him €2.90 after paying for my shopping. And even then he asked for €5 or €10. The staff told me he was a gypsy and they hunted his accomplice down and escorted her out of the shop.
I feel conned, guilty and embarrassed.
