    Can I play devil's advocate?
    Does anyone think this would have gotten the same attention if a white/indian etc person did it?
    Doesn't anyone think that the constant criticism of islam in the media and even on tsr is the cause of all this? Doesn't the constant hatred/criticism breed anger in normal individuals?
    Why are the same people who adamantly argue that it's absolutely fine to think someone who adheres to any religion particularly islam are delusional/deserve criticism the ones who are upset the most about this?
    How come on only select occasions do some tsrians decide to put down their pitchforks in favour of Islam?
    Why is it that people who normally believe that the world would be a better place if islam wasn't a thing are the ones upset about this
    Why are people using the term islamophobia when clearly xenophobia is a more accurate phrase?

    Also this wasn't the reaction I saw in a thread about a flight attendant refusing to attend to a muslim woman on a plane? No one yelled islamophobia on that thread.



    Mind you I didn't read this whole thread. Just going on some of what I saw on the other bus thread.

    What, so if two Polish people were in the UK on holiday, people would be really annoyed at them speaking Polish to each other? That's insane.

    No and that's not what I am saying.

    They are not normal people.

    They have poor education
    No work ethic
    Watch a lot of tv
    live off welfare

    These people are bottom of the barrel and undesirable. They have no say in society and rightly so.
    Are we talking about Muslims, people of African decent or British people?

    There are a hell of a lot of double standards from tsrians. Some are so pro free speech but if one mentions anything that goes against their own opinion then you get a condescending response enforced upon you ; reeking of anti-free speech.

    To be very honest I admire the fact that bacon and sauce is sticking to his guns. I normally see his posts and he's a staunch criticiser of islam. He hasn't abandoned all of that just to seem like a 'good and moral' person.
    Whether or not I agree with some of his posts is another thing but I admire his honesty

    Why? He was being childish when he laughed earlier. All he stated, he wants to know the events preceding the altercation to get the full facts. What has he said that is openly racist? BaconandSauce

    Well I haven't read any of his previous posts and I haven't read anything that would consider him "racist" or "Islamaphobic".

    Nothing wrong with his reaction. He was probably provoked.

    For agreeing it's a racist incident?

    No and that's not what I am saying.
    Apologies, I am struggling to clarify in my own mind when:

    a) a non-native speaker is "being rude" to the people around them, and;
    b) how the average passer-by is to quickly determine if the conditions laid out in a) have been met so they can be sufficiently outraged.
