Offensive Halloween Isis Jihadists Costumes Are Everywhere
This year, Halloween enthusiasts seem to have taken their costumes a step too far. People from around the world decided it would be cool to dress to as jihadi group ISIS and brag about their coolness all over social media accounts.
While costumes should be a way to poke fun at something that scares you, which is totally alright, there’s also a chance this could be perceived as not taking a political threat seriously. ISIS, for the most of the world is seen as a symbol of violence and oppression, so wearing a leather bodysuit and a niqab isn’t the best way to honor the fallen humanitarians, journalists and soldiers.
Wearing these costumes is actually encouraging a racist tradition that blends all Muslims together into one veiled threat.
