VIDEOS: Things Got HEATED at Anti-Islam Rally

Anti-Islam rallies took place across the country on Sunday, with a reported 200 protesters showing up at a mosque at Phoenix, Arizona. Things got heated as progressive leftist pro-Islamists showed up to counter-protest.

“This is not a religion of acceptance! This is not a religion of tolerance!” shouted one protester about Islam. “I do not hate Muslim people, it is the ideology behind Islam,” he explained.

One woman, carrying a sign saying “Gays & Feminists Against Islam Sharia ‘Law’ Violates Human Rights,” told a reporter with ABC 15 Arizona that, “Not all gays and feminists support Islam. Islam is very anti-gay and anti-woman.”

Amazingly, one man who had a strong Middle Eastern-sounding accent, stood with the anti-Islamist protesters, shouting down a white progressive American man who was standing with the religion that promotes beheading those who disagree with them, calling Islam a religion of killing and a “religion of hate” saying that he was “here to stand up with my American people.”

Police provided a wall of separation between the anti-Islamist and pro-Islamist protesters, as both groups used a megaphone to shout messages back and forth.

“This is the actual mosque that sent out the Garland shooters,” another protester shouted to the pro-Islamists over a megaphone. “Their founder was a pedophile. Their prophet was a pedophile. You guys are gonna wake up when these ‘moderate Muslims’ are activated. The Boston bomber was a college student. But when Allah whispered in his ear, he was ready to die,” he shouted.

Counter-protesters in support of Islam carried signs accusing the protesters of “hate speech.”

ABC 15 Arizona reports that when a group claiming to be Neo-Nazis showed up at the event, they were shouted down by the anti-Islamist protesters with the message of “You’re not welcome here.”
