I’ll bet you dollars to little green apples that the cuntmonkey doing the shooting thought that the gurdwara was a mosque, and that he was murdering Muslims. The perpetrator was a neo-Nazi dumbfuck, so any brown people might have been the target, but I have three reasons for thinking he was after people of the Islamic faith. 1) The dirtbag who opened fire on people who were peacefully worshiping had a tattoo featuring 9/11 among the racist ink covering his skin, which indicates he had a lot of rage for Muslims. 2) Men of the Sikh faith wear turbans and beards, and since this is what the stereotypical Muslim of a racist’s nightmares looks like they become the targets of Islamophobic violence. Other Sikh men were murdered after 9/11 and are persecuted still today because of the erroneous conflation of their turbans with all of Islam. 3) Racists are as stupid as a pile of cow shit and its doubtful that the pus-bucket who slaughtered the innocent civilians are the Oak Creek gurdwara did anything but look at their brown skin and beards and make assumptions.
I could be wrong. He may have known they were Sikhs and murdered them just because they were brown. After all, racists have no problems killing brown Christians.
But what if the monster who shot the Sikhs thought they were followers of Islam? Hate speech is the trigger in this kind of massacre. If moronic goat blowers are told a people are not as human and deserve to die, then those idiots will come to believe it and a few of the more disgusting ones will act on it. Asshat atheists like Same Harris and asshat christianists like Pat Robertson alike call Islam a “thoroughgoing cult of death” and “monumental scam” founded by “an absolute wild-eyed fanatic…a robber and brigand…a killer”.
The message is implied but it is clear – Muslims are the Other and they must be stopped, even by bullets, from spreading their evil and destroying Our Way of Life.
Hate speech is the purveyor and facilitator of evil.
