The Sun, Media Terrorism and Inciting Racial Hatred.
I don't read The Sun, I don't read The Sun because if I wanted to be fuelled with hatred for others and filled full of mistruths, misinformation and spoon fed misogyny daily, I would.....well, I would read The Sun, I suppose.
But todays headline in what is meant to be a national newspaper has taken my breath away.
NEVER have I read something so inflammatory, something designed to create hatred, in a world that has already experienced so much hate, this front page is not only irresponsible, it is inciting racial hatred.
Every day recently, I have seen posts regarding muslim people being attacked, just because they are muslim. Attacked because of their religious beliefs? Because newspapers, and I use the word news, loosely, have whipped people up into a frenzy and made the actions of a few terrorists into something that people who follow a whole religion must be held accountable for.
This headline, this violent and shocking headline, is based on a poll, say The Sun Newspaper. AN EXCLUSIVE SHOCK POLL, shrieks the headline. I am going to stand up here and now and say that The Sun newspaper is talking ABSOLUTE BOLLOCKS.
It is in their interests as a rag to whip up frenzies, I take it that this year there were no False Widow spiders or foxes eating babies that they could get people het up over, so they are going to take a peaceful religion, and make it so that people see them, they freeze in fear.
The world right now DOES NOT NEED The Sun to give people excuses to attack people, and that is happening throughout Britain right now. People are abusing Muslims, both verbally and physically, and these people are doing it partly because they have been incited to do so by rags such as The Sun.
What happens when someone is killed? Will The Sun admit that they have blood on their hands? They are MEDIA TERRORISTS, recruiting through their front pages and inciting violence.
I cannot stand by and watch as these front pages happen, I refuse to let them go by unchecked. If the Muslim community is being told that they should stand up and say that they do not condone terrorism. Then we should ALSO stand up and say that THE SUN IS NOT TALKING FOR US.
What are your thoughts on the front page of The Sun today?
Let me know.
