A British War Hero Has A Message For Your Islamophobia — And It's To ‘F—k Off’

'I know who I dislike, and I know who I don't. I know who I appreciate, and I know who I don't,' Herbert writes.

Chris Herbert, a veteran from the U.K. who lost his leg at 19 in a bomb blast in Iraq, has a quick (but oh so effective) message for people who are "expecting racism" or Islamophobia from him -- and it's to GTFO.

Herbert candidly rejected the idea that his war injury should force him down the path of militant Islamophobia (which FYI: is totally what ISIL/Daesh wants, anyway). Instead, in a post on his Facebook, he cites a long list of muslim individuals who played integral parts in his recovery and mentions a number of non-muslim ("white brit") individuals from back home who impeded it.

Warning: This post contains some colorful, profane language that may not be SFW or suitable for children or parents.

In the simplest and soberest of ways, he tells the people who try to encourage racist or bigoted attitudes that they won't have any sympathy from him.

"Point is: f--k off," he wrote. "I know who I dislike, and I know who I don't. I know who I appreciate, and I know who I don't. If you want to hate an entire race of men and women for the actions of a few d--k-heads feel free, but don't push your views on me, thinking I am an easy target because one douche-bag decided it was my day to die."

Herbert goes on to point out the hypocrisy of treating all muslims poorly because of the actions of a few extremists, writing that "blaming all muslims for the actions of groups like Daesh and the Taliban, is like blaming all Christians for the actions of the KKK or Westboro Baptist Church."

It seems like his message is resonating -- his post has already garnered more than 80,000 shares. Now, let's all just take his final bit of advice to heart (like, forever): "Get a grip of your lives, hug your family and get back to work."
