Sound the alarm!
As Twitchy reported, last night, the #TalibanHitSongs hashtag game exploded all over Twitter. And following close behind: the P.C. Police. Yep, scores of people found themselves outrageously outraged by what they saw as pure, unadulterated racism against the Taliban (because “Taliban” is apparently a race now), and they didn’t hold back in their righteous condemnation:
Possibly the most racist hashtag I've seen all year… #TalibanHitSongs? What's that all about?

@DouglasRWeil @andreyaboehm True, but many of the jokes in the trend are racist to Middle Easterners and/or bigoted towards all Muslims.

Thank goodness we have reasonable people like that to show us the error of our ways.
