Someone is defacing Islamophobic bus ads in San Francisco with Marvel’s first Muslim superhero

Anyone who thought that running Islamophobic ads on buses in San Francisco – a famously liberal city – was going to come without consequence, probably deserves any kind of humiliation they get.

Anyone who thought that running Islamophobic ads on buses in San Francisco – a famously liberal city – was going to come without consequence, probably deserves any kind of humiliation they get.

That’s exactly what’s happening with ads disseminated by the U.S. branch of the Freedom Defense Initiative (classified as a hate group in the U.K.), which seeks to compare Muslims with Nazis.

Some quick-thinking person decided to ad a twist to the ads, by defacing their garbage message with pictures of Kamala Khan, Marvel Comic’s first Muslim superhero.

Here are some the of ads that the website Street Cred spotted and posted to their Facebook page:

    What conservatives need to understand is that not every person of Islamic faith is an extremist, and that every Muslim on earth was not associated with the planes that struck the world trade center.

    Funny really…they can perfectly grasp that not all Christians operate in the ways of The Westboro Baptist Church or the kings and queens who claimed to have divine right, but the concept of not all Muslim people being psychotic or bloody thirsty murders completely goes over their heads.

    The buses featured here are *NOT* in San Francisco. metrobus and the D6 bus are in Washington, DC. On the big sign in the first photo, at the bottom, you can even see mention of WMATA, the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority. How can you be a credible news source if you have this basic element wrong?

    I agree with Landon McCain about a small number of Muslims who are terrorists. There are more than a billion Muslims in the world today. If it really were a religion of terrorism, we’d all be dead by now.

    I hate to be an ultra nerd but she is not Marvel’s first Muslim Superhero. First FEMALE Muslim Superhero, fine. But not the first Muslim… http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-M_HOVw-q_0U/UD4ydqdfGFI/AAAAAAAAG30/2hJrcmhz5Qk/s1600/arabianknight_tobin.jpg
