Tomorrow – Saturday June 10th, all over the United States, Act for America has called for marches against “Sharia Law”, which is clearly a thinly veiled stab at the Muslim community, given that Donald Trump is in office with GOP House and Senate majorities.
The United States is not at risk for Sharia Law.
However, our Muslim brothers and sisters throughout the world are at risk from racist and violent policies as well as rhetoric. In word and in deed, the growing alt-right movement continues to merge with neo-Nazis, Klan, Southern Confederate groups and others who advocate “free speech” to support policies that threaten Muslims worldwide.
The Boston march is set to gather around 10AM near the Park Street T stop on Boston Common. The public Facebook event features an attendance list of local “Proud Boy” fascists, Three Percenters, Oathkeepers and other Islamaphobes & “patriots” of white supremacy, most of whom are known to us after their free speech circle jerk in Boston on May 13th.
For more information on the “Proud Boys” and their open connections with neo-nazis, see this post from It’s Going Down.
To be clear, this rally for Christian supremacy has nothing to do with the First Amendment and everything to do with promoting terrorism against minorities. In the last week two people lost their lives in Portland (Ricky Best and Taliesin Namkai-Meche), knifed to death after attempting to defend a Muslim woman from a known white supremacist spewing hate speech on the light-rail. This isn’t an isolated event. America’s own law enforcement organs state that the vast majority of fatal attacks on U.S. soil are carried out by white supremacists. This particular gathering of racists is particularly problematic in that it is taking place in the same vicinity and timeframe of Boston’s Pride festivities.
One of these far-right agitators could very well be the next Jeremy Christian, so remember these faces.
