New Yorkers Give Racist Anti-Muslim Signs A Much Needed Overhaul | Addicting Info

I feel that this is a good article and just shows that we are not all a bunch of fear mongering bigots, I say good to those who did this, to those either too lazy to read the link or who simply refuse to read anything not from a right wing blog/website what it boils down to is that about a month or two ago anti-muslim posters started popping up in the nyc subway system well in answer to these obviously stupid fear based posters someone started going to every poster and slapping on a "warning THIS IS WAR PROPAGANDA" stickers on everyone. Me as a new yorker and as someone not living in fear it makes me happy to know that not everyone in this place is stupid and afraid.

I have an issue with supporting vandals. If these morons want to "advertise", they can pay for the ad space the same as anyone else. Hopefully they are caught, made to clean up their crap and prosecuted.

I have more of an issue with the morons who made these posters in the first place, another "grassroots organization" given a good bit of money to spread the hate and fear around.

Why would anyone criticize the religion of peace?

We actually need more enlightened Muslims in our country to "enrich" us with their diversity.

I'm all for racism if it'll keep the religion of peace out of this country.

That's fine, take out an advertisement that promotes your view. Free speach is a grand thing. Vandalism, not so much. A bunch of childish idiots slapping stickers on someone elses property, not very impressive. Considering the traction those Occupy morons got in NYC, this isn't a suprise though.

Considering that 99+% of Muslims and Jack Muslims living in this country are peaceful I would say that they are enlightened. Now, if you go abroad the story is different. As soon as Islam is part of a government it seems to be a different story.
