You can’t argue with idiots. It’s an old piece of advice that generally holds true, you just find yourself consistently frustrated. You can’t win an argument if both parties don’t grasp the subject.
A better piece of advice would perhaps be: 'You can’t argue with an idiot, especially one with a slender grasp of rap knowledge'.
At least that seems the case with the latest EDL blunder.
Originally created as a meme to mock hardcore EDL supporters, the above image shows Ice Cube of NWA fame holding a fishing rod in one picture and a gun in the other, referring to him as a Muslim convert and an ISIS soldier. The first picture is apparently him crossing from Syria into Greece on a boat (he’s actually in a kayak from the comedy Are We There Yet 2, but whatever). The second is allegedly him sat in a high rise flat in Birmingham with a machine gun. Which he clearly isn't.
The caption encourages people to share the picture to presumably stop him from spitting some serious bars on English shores.
The fake poster, created by Facebook user Micky Williams, has now been shared over 18,000 times after he posted it on Tuesday. A lot of people appreciate it’s satire of Islamophobia, but astonishingly it’s actually also gathered a lot of ground from real hate-filled Facebook users who are now using it as propaganda.
This is why nobody takes the Britain First movement seriously. Now go read a book or listen to some rap tunes.
