A good friend of mine, YouTuber Richard "The Dick" Coughlan, recently turned the efforts of English Defence League leader Tommy Robinson into an even more spectacular joke than he typically is. On Sunday night, apparently alarmed by a picture of an Arabic looking building on Twitter's home page, Robinson fired off the following tweet:
welcome to twitter homepage has a picture of a mosque. what a joke #creepingsharia
While it may have been enough to simply point out that the raving Islamaphobe had incorrectly identified the Taj Mahal as a mosque, Coughlan went the extra mile by whipping up a YouTube video encouraging users to "fuck with the EDL" by hijacking the creepingsharia hash tag. (Some of the wittier tweets can be found over at Huff Po.) This is how I feel we can best deal with imbeciles, regardless of flavor - point and laugh, my friends. Point and laugh.
*NOTE: Richard Coughlan is not, in fact, a good friend of mine. He's not even a minor acquaintance. In fact, one might say that he doesn't have even the slightest inkling of a notion that I exist. That I may feel the need to prop up my twisted fantasies involving occasionally kinky sleep-over rounds with a stranger from YouTube by claiming friendship shouldn't really be of notable concern.
