WTF Political Cartoons

26 notes

secotm:

Sikhism is not Islam. It is not related to Islam. Whenever there is an act of terrorism Muslims are immediately blamed (or at least suspected). Not Sikhs.
But hey, they’re all brown people, right?
And of course they’ll sympathize with the NRA and how tough it will be to continue to buy off politicians now that several more people have died in a senseless tragedy.

Yep, false equivalency. Sikhism is a peaceful religion (which also puts high value on self defence and fighting against injustice). NRA is a group whose sole concern is people’s free access to guns.
And a proper Sikh would not lament being blamed for Muslim extremists’ acts. While the religion is in contrast to Islam (and Hinduism) in India, their faith does not allow for joining the side of injustice to save yourself.
