This provides evidence of how difficult it is to make intolerant remarks in the face of people (towards whom the comments are directed to). Notice how the bigot, distributing stickers with Islamic and Nazi symbols interlaced, becomes completely speechless when confronted by people who question his motivations… you can see the embarrassment on his face, an embarrassment he knows will be seen by thousands and thousands of people.
This also provides evidence that it doesn’t take an army to speak the truth and turn the tide… it takes just one or two or a few brave individuals to stand up to bigotry, as shown in the video. So, next time you hear or see Islamophobia, don’t be afraid to ask “why are you doing this sir/ma’am?”.
One final “controversial” comment (what’s an Amad post without controversy?? :) )So, I actually see some positives (a very narrow silver lining) in having Muslims for McCain… at least there is someone to stand up against bigotry :)
