Late last Saturday night, seven people were killed and dozens more were injured when three Islamists carried out a terror attack at London Bridge.
In response to that attack, there was the sadly predictable wave of anti-Muslim sentiment. One far right blogger took things a bit too far for her employer Breitbart News, getting fired after posting a message on Twitter reading, “There would be no deadly terror attacks in the U.K. if Muslims didn’t live there.
Katie McHugh, the woman responsible for the tweet, pays no mind in her statement to the fact that the Irish Republican Army actually has a long history of carrying out terror attacks in the United Kingdom.
She received a massive amount of backlash for her patently ridiculous sentiment, but she, somewhat unsurprisingly, didn’t retract it.
Following her being terminated for her comments, she started a crowdfunding page to pay for supposedly necessary medical bills.
The irony in this is so glaring that it hurts. It’s people like Katie who, when not railing against non-whites, rail against the idea of providing for a system that would pay people’s medical bills in time of need.
Renowned comedic actor Seth Rogen had a few words to say about this, summing up the absurd situation on Twitter this Monday as follows: “Props to this racist lady who was fired from Breitbart for being too racist, and now she’s asking for a handout because she’s unemployed.”
