Paul Golding Spreads Lie That London Muslims Celebrated Paris Terror Attack

The meme that Muslims, especially Western Muslims, whether they be in New York or London, celebrate terror attacks is a persistent trope used over and over again by Islamophobes. Christian missionary David Wood uses it, President Donald Trump uses it and now the leader of a small anti-Muslim party named Paul Golding has tweeted a video he claims shows “‘moderate’ Muslims celebrating the Paris terror attack in London.”:

Sadly for Golding, as MEND Community has shown, the video is actually Pakistani cricket fans celebrating their team’s victory in the 2009 World Cup.

The tweet has been deleted though no correction/apology has been posted by Golding or Britain First.

    Individuals don’t afford others civil rights – that role is to be fulfilled and enforced by government. It would be awfully nice if individuals would appreciate this, and to not infringe upon the civil rights of their fellow citizens – wouldn’t you say?

  • HSkol

    I myself live in America, which by intent offers civil rights to all of her citizens and residents. The practice of this offering doesn’t always seem so apparent or even realized, however. This site calls out issues of such disregard. Does that help?

  • Civil rights aren’t predicated on having “correct” beliefs. In fact, if I live in America, I can believe that no one, including myself, should have civil rights and yet still be entitled to them.

    With this additional clarification, I’m able to answer: Yes.

    Why should Muslims get rights they refuse to others? For example If I believe you have the right to a fair hearing in court and you believe I have the right to a Sharia court where the interest of a Muslim takes precedence, how does that society function?

  • I’m not sure what you mean.

  • Okay. Then we’re safeguarding and promoting non-existent Muslim civil rights.

  • HSkol

    Yes! I’m officially a recognized Taqiyyaist now!

    Sounds good. I simply cannot wait for the next round of stonings and lashings! 😉

  • I see Dude is finally giving you your ups! Congratulations!

    We can talk basting and roasting techniques after next breakfast, when our stonings and lashings are set later in the afternoon. 🙂

  • HSkol

    I’d suppose this might be a terrible place to offer up a new recipe and new roasting technique. Shucks, I was so excited about it too. Ah well, I’ll catch ya at another time.

  • Not really. This is a site devoted to promoting and safeguarding Muslim civil rights.

    Good night. Sleep well. The best to you …

    I don’t need a bloody helmet … I’m Floki!!! (Don’t know if you’ve ever seen the History Channel series Vikings … my cultured father, the primary source of my Vikinghood, would cringe at the sight of the program’s previews. He was apparently Christianized – he’s quite a good guy though. I think the series is fabulous. Tanveer does too.)

  • I would like to be a part of this, but Aunt Bee? Not feeling it. I actually went searching…never noticed how few women there were on that show!

    Vikings are cool. Forget the likeness of Ernest T. Bass. I shall hence forth always picture you with a horned helmet and mail armor, wielding an ax. 🙂

  • HSkol

    As happy as I was, I obviously won that debate. Obviously!

  • It’s supposed to be a perfectly accurate depiction of someone else. Here’s you…after debating with Otis for many a long hour….

  • HSkol

    Hey! How’d you get that perfectly accurate depiction of me? I brag about being a Viking. I guess I’m but a Hillbilly … but, at least not a Hillbilly forgotten!

  • “I need you to repeat that point a zillion more times….I’m drunk again…too funny”

  • HSkol

    Stupid teebass. At least he’s enjoying a conversation with the ever persistent Otis tonight. 😉

  • Oh no…teebass is missing from Mayberry, and the whole town is sad. 🙂

  • HSkol

    Many thanks!

    Shouldn’t matter so much at all though … Eye was simply going to apply a Skolly joke – no more, no less. My poor village is missing me tonight. 😉

  • I tried but couldn’t fix the comments on that one article, but I texted someone more tech savvy who is looking into it. Thanks for letting us know. 🙂

  • HSkol

    She’s been applying nail polish … for a very, very long time.

  • Still here, rumors notwithstanding. 🙂

  • CowabungaCreeper

    Won’t we hear about those from the counterjihadclowns incessent bitching?
