Trolling the NPCs

Normies and NPCs* freak out in Massachusetts over signs posted around town that read “Islam Is RIGHT About Women.” The most fun element of this is the confused looks on the faces of the individuals interviewed and the news-robots reporting. They don’t understand the message but they’re certain it’s hate speech.

As BPS notes, this is an incredibly “…clever delivery vehicle that forces people to confront their own cognitive dissonance.” If members of the Church of Woke disagree with the the message, are they Islamophobic? If they agree with the message, are they misogynists?


*Side question: what’s the overlap in the Venn diagram of these two groups?

  1. I thought this was intriguing enough to check it out with a search of Google News.

    The top hit is a brief at Reason.com.

    The second hit is from a local TV station in Boston, so I clicked on that.   And I found a brief but very interesting article.   In fact, I think it is so interesting that here it is:

    WINCHESTER, Mass. – A slew of controversial signs posted across one local town has been drawing more confusion than outrage.

    In Winchester, signs that read “Islam was RIGHT about women” has residents scratching their heads to figure out exactly what the poster meant by those words.

    Winchester Police and upset residents spent a good part of their Wednesday afternoon removing signs from several poles across the town.

    While offensive to some, police said that, while it’s technically illegal to post anything on a street sign, it’s a tough law to enforce. Due to freedom of speech and because the signs in question aren’t threatening, police say it’s like posting a sign about a lost cat.

    “I assume it’s negative,” said Dorothy Kruger, a resident. “That’s not cool, that’s not a cool thing to do.”

    Police said they received multiple calls about the signs, but since they removed them, no other signs have popped up. Nevertheless, authorities are still investigating the incident.

    “I think somebody just wanted this to happen right?” said Stacey Irizarry. “To get some kind of response. The sign itself is confusing it is subject to interpretation.”

    While many say they are offended and bothered by the signs, others say they don’t really know how to feel about them since the signs don’t make a lot of sense.

    “I really don’t know because everybody has their own opinion and I respect it,” said Syeda Tahsina Mahmud, who is Muslim. “Everybody’s entitled to say whatever they want.”

    “What is the intent behind it and what are we trying to prove by putting it on this pole so ambiguously,” said Shakeelur Rahman, the Imam of the Islamic Center of Burlington. “There is not a lot of clarity in it. I hope the person was trying to encourage people to look it up maybe or research it.”

  2. A few things about the article from WFXT in Boston.   They have paraphrases from police, two quotes from clueless residents, and two quotes from Muslims.

    I am not surprised that man-on-the-street quotes from local residents reveal a lack of enough knowledge to figure it out, but that seems to me to be not newsworthy.

    I do believe that the Muslims are aware enough to figure out the point of those posters, but they also know enough to dissemble, since it helps their cause for local residents to remain clueless about Islam.

    I thought I recognized Boston Channel 25, but at their website there is no clue that they are a part of the Fox News network.   No graphics, no links, no nothing.   I had expected to see some branding, but they are clearly trying to remain anonymous as to their network affiliation.

    And I am surprised that a Fox News affiliate did not get a quote from anyone who could clarify for their viewers what the clear thrust of the posters is.   How disappointing.   Either they are just as clueless as the residents, or too lazy and incompetent, or so cowed by the Leftist tilt of their community, that they ran a blurb about the mystery posters without doing anything to clear up the mystery.

  3. “Winchester Multicultural Network”—heh.  Listen to the intersectionality explode from its own internal contradictions while you pop the popcorn above the fireball.

    In Winchester, signs that read “Islam was RIGHT about women” has residents scratching their heads to figure out exactly what the poster meant by those words.

    Most of the quotes in that piece are actually in the video. More important, the article misquotes the poster. It’s “Islam Is RIGHT About Women” not “Islam was RIGHT about women.” The fake news can’t even get that five-word sign right.

    In the Commonwealth, Fox branding is toxic. I understand why they don’t want to highlight their affiliation. The link http://www.fox25boston.com/ does contain the Fox brand and redirects to their site, which does not refer to Fox.

    BTW, why in heaven’s name are you still using Gulag Google? Unlike Gulag, DuckDuckGo correctly identifies Fox 25 Boston. To find any references at Gulag news, I had to put quotes around the phrase.

    Yeah. I don’t get it. I thought calling Islam bad in anyway is being Islamiphobic.

    I am very confused. Does Islam say something bad about women?

    Bryan, have you not read the Koran and how women are treated? Have you not read my post about what I think of Islam? I am completely Islamophobic, hate them with an unholy passion.

    Bryan was joking, Kay. He understands.
