The hashtag #NotMyAmerica was in response to the planned protest at a Mosque in Arizona, because of the May 3rd shooting. The shooting started when two armed muslims opened fired at a building holding the "Muhammad Art Exhibit and Cartoon Contest". They were shot by officers and died due to gun wounds. The hashtag was started by The Campaign to Take On Hate as a way "to drown out the abhorrent comments and supporters of the armed protesters" according to Linda Sarsour, the senior strategist of the campaign. They also started the hashtag #PHXmosque as another way to find the supporters of the armed protesters. So far, the hashtag has been used for good and bad as people post the hashtag all over Facebook and Twitter. The protest was peaceful and lasted the whole day as both sides shouted towards each other. What do you think of the hashtag and/or the protest? Is this another example of how America is becoming more 'bigoted'? Comment! Also, post pictures that you found interesting about the event! Remember, this is a debate/discussion thread not a 'shout at each other until this thread gets lock' thread. EDIT: Made some corrections thanks to Jorick and Protagonist.
