Ben Affleck speaks about Islamophobia X
ON BILL MAHERS ISLAMOPHOBIC ASS SHOW GO AWFF AND EID MUBARAK BROTHERS AND SISTERS
I hate this rhetoric so much because Bill Mahers and the other mayo sack next to him are not ‘objectively’ criticizing Islamic countries, but ignoring their own backyard and the current state of gays, poc, and women in this country to further their hate towards Islamic people and their religion. Predominantly muslim countries are more likely to elect a women into office then we are, and there is so much proof that the radicals are a small minority among them. We are simply a war loving country trying to justify killing innocent people instead of accepting that this country just loves killing and stealing and putting terrorists into leadership positions in other governments in order to make it easier to control them for our own gain and at the expense of the people who live there, but oh no, America could never be a terrorist nation.
Dude like how can people NOT KNOW we are a terrorist nation when the people that founded our government were terrorists and
Does coming over and causing mass genocide and slavery meanwhile using violence to keep control NOT RING A BELL FOR ANYONE
In school we are taught that ‘God’ wanted this for us. Manifest destiny. It isn’t terrorism if this is simply ‘the way things must be’ because ‘God said so, we are chosen’ It’s a fucking dangerous belief to believe that, and then further enforce that idea on to the people who ‘weren’t chosen’
Religion is a dangerous thing. History will show you that. Under the belief of religion there have been over a trillion killings. “God” would not have wanted that.
It’s not religion, it never was. Religion in an idea. It exists because we allow it, it’s powerful and has completely changed history but so has a lot of man made ideas, like justice or money. These are powerful ideas that can be used for good or bad because it’s completely dependent on the people who use it to make it so. Don’t blame the idea, but the people whose intentions were selfish and destructive to begin with.
