Wounded British soldier shuts up anti-Muslim racists with epic message | Pride’s Purge

Chris Herbert was serving in Iraq when his right leg was blown off by a roadside bomb.
Here’s what he has to say about anti-Muslim racism:

Getting frustrated by some people expecting racism from me, because I got blown up. Yes. A Muslim man blew me up, and I lost my leg.

A Muslim man also lost his arm that day wearing a British Uniform.
A Muslim medic was in the helicopter that took me from the field
A Muslim surgeon performed the surgery that saved my life
A Muslim Nurse was part of the team that helped me when I returned to the UK
A Muslim Healthcare Assistant was part of the team that sorted out my day to day needs in rehabilitation when I was learning to walk
A Muslim taxi driver gave me a free ride the first time I went for a beer with my Dad after I came home.
A Muslim doctor offered my Dad comfort and advice in a pub, when he didnt know how to deal with my medicines and side effects.

Contrary to that,
A white brit spat in my girlfriends face for ‘fucking a cripple when you could have me [him]’
A White brit pushed my wheelchair away from a lift so he could use it first.
A White brit screamed at my Dad for parking in a disabled bay when I was in the services coming home
(Although, alot of people helped in my recovery! I dont hate white brits either! hahaha)

Point is, fuck off. I know who I dislike, and I know who I dont. I know who I appreciate, and I know who I dont. If you want to hate an entire race of men and women for the actions of a few dickheads feel free, but don’t push your views on me, thinking I am an easy target because one douchebag decided it was my day to die.

Blaming all Muslims for the actions of groups like Daeshe and the Taliban, is like blaming all Christians for the actions of the KKK or Westboro Baptist Church.
Get a grip of your lives, hug your family and get back to work.

Says it all…

    This will be read by Blind racists,if read out it will be heard by deaf racists. They have been taught how to think that way,it will take a lot of time to change the thought prosess as they don’t believe you.

      Please don’t be disablist ( comment above this one.) You are insulting blind and deaf people which is just as bad as racism. Do not use our conditions as a metaphor for those people who are set in their ignorant prejudices – blame a society which educates and encourages such ignorance and sets human being against human being to increase power and riches to the few.

    This is an amazingly brilliant response to the hate that is now permeating our society thanks to the govt nudging. It’s astonishing that people I know seem unable to understand the levels of casual abuse the disabled have to endure. (I too can vouch for the examples of being in a wheelchair and being pushed away from things, or being verbally abused from behind so you can’t see them.) Thank goodness for people like Chris Herbert, as if we didn’t already know he is a brave man, he now takes on some of the worst aspects of the UK with disablism and racism / Islamaphobia. I hope he can take this further, and become involved politically and maybe even put himself forward for selection for MP.

    First of all, Muslims are not a race, so describing it as racism shows ignorance. Secondly, who is saying that all Muslims are bad and should be treated badly, even Trump is not saying this. Yes of course that are so many nice Muslims who even might be nicer than some Christians but what does this prove? Muhammed Emmuazi (Jihadi John) was described as polite and mild-mannered, probably the San Bernardino terrorists were described by their colleagues as kind and nice people and they ended up committing the most horrible crimes. Thirdly, he is comparing the best Muslim behaviour against the worst white Brit behaviour. Are we really suggesting that Muslims in general have higher morality and better manners that white Brits? The Muslim gang rapes in Britain, the support for a death cult like ISIS, the hate speech we see in the UK doesn’t show a mild-mannered Muslims to me. When are people going to get real? The superficiality and naivety of people nowadays are beyond comprehension.

      This is true. Your own superficiality and naivete are evident in your post.
      I certainly hope most people reading this can see through you.
