Johan Slattavik posted the photo on the Fatherland First [translated] Facebook page as a joke asking: “What do people think of this?”
Incredibly, many Norwegians opposed to immigration believed the post was serious, failing to spot that it was actually just a photo of an empty bus, The Local reports.
The question is, outside of submission, what doesn’t inflame the Muslim world?
Muslim women should be inflamed that they are forced to wear those hideous garments that cover up their gender, their beauty, their womanliness.
Humorless, violent, supremacist …
Before the Papal coup installed this pro-Islamic Francis, Pope Benedict quoted Byzantine emperor Manuel II Palaiologos, one of the last Christian rulers before the Fall of Constantinople to the Muslim Ottoman Empire, on such issues as forced conversion, holy war, and the relationship between faith and reason, “Show me just what Muhammad brought that was new and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached.”
Bus Seats That Look Like Burqas Cause Outrage On Social Media
August 2, 2017, by Gabrielle Okun, Daily caller Foundation:
A Norwegian nationalist party is under attack after falling for a joke Facebook post of empty bus seats that looked like Muslim women wearing burqas.
A man named Johan Slattavik originally posted the picture, which features six empty seats on an Oslo Bus, which looks like Muslim women wearing burqas. It was subsequently picked up by party Fatherland First, but the party’s message sparked outrage on social media since many of the members took it seriously.
“I laid out this photo to see what happened,” said Slattavik to WorldViews, adding that it was “a little practical joke.”
“What happens when a photo of some empty bus seats is posted to a disgusting Facebook group, and nearly everyone thinks they see a bunch of burqas?” wrote Sindre Beyer, a former MP of the Labour Party,
Rune Berglund Steen from the Norwegian Centre Against Racism (Antirasistisk senter) that people will quickly form conclusions based on what they want to believe.
