Australians are showing solidarity for Muslims concerned about a backlash amid the Sydney hostage crisis, by offering to ride with them on public transit.
The hashtag #IllRideWithYou began to trend hours after a suspected gunman took a number of hostages in the Lindt Chocolat Café in downtown Sydney Monday morning. Two people inside the cafe held up a flag with an Islamic declaration of faith that has been used by extremists in the past, prompting speculation that the standoff was the result of a possible terrorist plot.
I guess that's because after 9/11, hundreds of American Muslims were brutalized all across the USA? Or, Canada reacted in fury at the general Muslim population after the attack on Parliament and murder of two unarmed Canadian soldiers? Or, all across Europe, Muslims are regularly targeted and assaulted in revenge of trivial things like car burnings? Or, UK Muslims tremble in fear and hide their females from White English rape gangs?
Truly, in a just world Progressives would be forced to endure the consequences of their philosophies.
Update: Breitbart takes it on.
