    That is also utterly meaningless. Stop Islam? How the **** does one do that? What does stop Islam even mean?

    I think a large reason for that was because people were criticising the hashtag

    Rather amusing, because people see it trending, and use it themselves to criticise the trend. Their followers do the same, and so on. Then, they see how often the hashtag has been used, and assume that the far right islamophobes have taken over Twitter, when the opposite is true!

    Actually it is because we only want the Islamic radicals stopped, not the entire religion because even though it is inherently violent, most muslims practise it peacefully.

    What should've trended was #ReformIslam

    I don't think I've ever seen one of these types who was good looking, healthy, socially capable, athletic, charismatic, not a complete reject etc. it's little wonder too. Why support a system of competition when genetic waste such as yourself cannot compete because you need other people's abilities to sustain you?
