The Latest EDL attempt to whip up islamophobia on twitter has badly backfired reports Sanum Ghafoor

Tommy Robinson, self appointed leader of the EDL, began using the hashtag #creepingsharia on Twitter yesterday. It was his attempt to highlight how the growing Islamification of Britain had now seeped through and infiltrated social networking websites.

But as usual, people reacted to Tommy Robinson in the way they should react to any racist, islamophobic idiot- they ridiculed his revolting ideology and turned it into a work of satirical genius, resulting in the hashtag backfiring on the EDL, the acronym in this case, and in any case for that matter, standing for Eternally Delusional Losers.  Currently trending worldwide, below are a few of my favourite #creepingsharia tweets.


Demonstrate against the EDL in Luton

EDL thugsOn the 5th May 2012 the EDL will be holding their national demo in Luton. Unite Against Fascism (UAF) are calling on all anti-racists and anti-fascists to assemble in Wardown Park, New Bedford Road, Luton, LU3 1LP at 11am and march to St George's Square, in the town centre, in solidarity against the EDL.
