“I’ll Ride With You” a Muslim PR stunt that exposes female oppression

Some think Muslim extremists are being hard done by.  Poor jihadists.

In Sydney, no-one wants to bury Man Monis, the Martin Place chocolate jihadist.

Imported Muslims in Sydney are feeling victimised since the Martin Street siege and since the arrest of Mohammad Ali Baryalei and Omarjan Azari for conspiring to behead a passerby in Martin Place.

Muslims’ right to riot in Hyde Park is falling on deaf ears.

Islam Not Welcome in Australia

Muslims have labelled their persecution “Islamophobia” a fear of Islam, as if Sydneysiders should not be fearful of random beheadings in Martin Place by hardcore Muslims. 

Muslims should be free to walk Sydney streets and visit Parliament House.

So in response to a perceived local backlash against Muslims and the tarnishing of the Islamic brand, some Muslim woman, Tessa Kum, tweeted a hashtag #IllRideWithYou, to show her solidarity to fellow burqa cladders catching the 373 bus from Coogee to Martin Place.

What was a Muslim doing in Coogee anyway? Surfing?

So Muslims don’t feel safe in Sydney?

How about Sydneysiders with Muslims about?


Anyway, Tessa Kum’s hastag #IllRideWithYou went viral as they say, probably because there are now half a million Muslims in Australia.  Muslim bike riders picked up on the idea for a Muslim PR stunt.  Last Sunday a bunch of Muslims lycrad up for their PR stunt to ride their bikes from Lakemba Mosque (the now Muslim stronghold in Sydney’s south-west) to Martin Place.

About fifty cyclists took part in a commemorative bike ride, all for the ABC Leftist media to splash on Sunday’s peak evening news.

Problem was that the ride exposed the Muslim faith for what it is – one of female oppression.  Not one female bike rider was allowed to join the all Muslim male group in the bike ride.

Muslim women were only allowed to watch from the sidelines so long as they dressed appropriately.

I'll ride with you

The male Muslim bike riders observed a minute’s silence in Martin Place and held up their  ‘I’ll ride with you‘ signs.

Sophie Bartho from Bicycle New South Wales said the tribute was simple but compassionate.

“It’s a delightful way to show the unity that’s in the community and that we all support each other regardless of our backgrounds and our beliefs. We have enormous diversity … and it’s interesting because they say the bicycle is a symbol of freedom, so I think there’s another interesting perspective or reflection in that in itself.”

When the riders arrived in Martin Place, there was increased police presence, just in case.
