Bigots Cheer Inferno At Muslim Day Care Center, Muslim Community Responds With Epic Roast

Bigots Cheer Inferno At Muslim Day Care Center, Muslim Community Responds With Epic Roast (VIDEO)

JUNE 2, 2015 10:29 AM

When a Muslim day care center suffered a devastating fire at the end of April this year, bigots shared the video footage online with gleeful celebration. But the Muslim community came up with an absolutely hilarious way to respond: an epic roast of their own.

On April 27, 2015, more than sixty children were in day care at the Islamic Society of Tampa, Florida, when a fire started in a rooftop air conditioner at about 4:30 P.M. Firefighters were called to battle a two-alarm fire at the scene while racing to save the children from the fire engulfing the building. Thankfully, everyone made it out alive and mostly uninjured. Civil Rights Director for CAIR Florida, Thania Diaz Clevenger, said:
“The first thing they told me, what they’re grateful about, that’s the first words out of their mouth — the kids are fine, the teachers are fine.”

While most people viewed this as a near-catastrophe and were filled with relief that all escaped injury, a depressingly high number of people took to social media to celebrate the fire and lament the lack of fatalities. Former Colorado firefighter and Boy Scout leader Bob Shepard, said:

“Let it burn!!!”

He also commented:

“Bomb making class go wrong again??????”

Another comment read:

“Burn them all down and deport them all.”

Some posts even expressed a hope that the children at the day care would die. One stated:

“I hope it was full of Muslim trash.”

Another declares:

“Time for a pig roast in Tampa.”

Inspired by the videos of celebrities reading out mean tweets about themselves, Tampa-based production company Peace Housetook some of these hateful tweets and produced a video of Muslims reading and reacting to them. The result is a completely thrilling experience in which Muslims get to laugh in the face of the ridiculous claims made about them by bigots. It is evident from the video which group has the most humanity, and more closely represent the values of most of us watching — and it’s not the bigots.

Glad to see you defend an abrahamic religion that is even more conservative than any Christian that ever lived ;-)

AND, I'm very glad that no one was harmed. Anyone who would wish harm on innocent children goes beyond bigotry to downright evil. If I'm even allowed to use the superstitious term "evil" these days.

Glad to see these people didn't get down in the gutter with the bigot's but made something good out of a bad situation.

Do you have info that the day care center is affiliated with or supports ISIS?

How anyone could wish harm on other humans is despicable - to wish it on children, horrendous. Happy to hear they made it out and good on the Muslim group for keeping positive and not resorting to the same hate they were so graciously given.

There's another thread about how liberals are making America coarser - yet here we have people who are no doubt conservative making fun of a situation that could have killed innocent children

I might hurt these people if they were in front of me.

I'd need Jesus...
