They are aren't they? I see no chill...

So tonight my mam started her very first online flame war (everybody say awwwwwww).
Basically someone invited her to a group called "If the BNP wanted a march then they'd be stopped so stop the Muslim march" (this relates to the Islam4UK mrach through Wotton Basset).
Now whatever your standpoint on Islam4UK, the Facebook groups are being used as racist outlets and this is the main reason my mam won't join, so she statused:
"Just been invited to another bloody racist group. Please stop"
and then came drama:

Racist: Hi *insert my mam's name*.
I sent you that request and please let me make it quite clear that I am not racist in fact far from it.
I am fed up with the way some of these immagrent groups can do whayt they like while us english are told what is and isnt proper and are slowly loosing our identity.
Go to a hospital you are asked if you are white british not english but other nationalities have there own spot and handled in a different way.

Mam: Why does being a Muslim make you an imigrant? Some of our troups out in Iraq and Afghanistan are Muslim and fighting for the freedom of the people of the world.

Me (having just spotted this on my newsfeed): *HEAD DESK*

What makes you think they're an immigrant (yes THAT is how it's spelled in the ENGLISH LANGUAGE), group?
Many English (capital "E") people are in fact Muslim.
Are you not an immigrant to? I bet if you trace your family tree back you can find at least one person from a country that isn't England.
Britain has been Britain for hundreds of years now, if you want to change it back to might as well go back to being tiny little kingdoms scattered all over the island.
And finally as my mother works in a hospital I think she all ready knows how forms work, everyone is asked their Ethnicity, not just you.

At which point someone who just added my mam wades in with: "I AM HIS WIFE, STOP BULLYING MY HUSBAND HE IS RIGHT ABOUT IMMIGRANT LAYABOUTS! SEND THEM BACK GOD SAVE THE QUEEN!"

me: I think you'll find most asylum seekers are very happy, hard working people glad to be in this country rather than being persecuted in the countries that they come from, there are far more people who originated in this country that sit around complaining and wanting things to change.
The point still remains though, how did your husband decide that it was an immigrant group, that's the racist bit, seeing the word "Muslim" and assuming it means "foreign".

So my mam deleted both of them and we thought it was the end of it.
Five minutes later I got this gem in my inbox from the "wife"'s account:

I take it from your comments then, that anyone who cannot spell properly, is not proud of their Country. I feel sorry for any dyslexic people who are tarred with this brush. I would agree that most asylum seekers are happy to be here- being given somewhere to live and money to live on that they have contributed absolutely nothing too must be like a dream come true for them

Aaaaaand I snap:
Ok firstly I have been pretty polite to you thus far but this is a step too far.
Private messaging me because your husband is to butthurt that people don't agree with him and needs you to fight his battles for him is just stupid.
Firstly what I said has nothing to do with Dyslexia (FYI my Dad and my best friend are Dyslexic), more to do with "It's a bit funny how all these people who claim not to be racist then say highly racist things all use the language incorrectly and then claim Dyslexia when challenged".
You know what? I'm pretty sure if I had to escape my home for fear of being blown up because of wars, persecuted for my sexuality or my religion the first thing I'd be doing would be getting myself some counselling and relaxing before I found a job, speaking of which you ignored the fact that there are more people that are born in this country that are layabouts than asylum seekers that are.
Let me guess, you next point would have been "OH MY GOD GUYS THE ILLEGALS ARE STEALING OUR JOBS AND WOMEN!"
Please take your tabloid newspaper spin elsewhere, grow some manners and do not message me again.

And then I go to check out the profile.

Gender: MALE.

Ok, I think, troll account...Makes sense, then I notcie something...The profile photo...IS A LABRADOR!

Funny you should mention that...
My uni choice was based on "I want to be as far away from my dad as possible".
Yes I regret it like hell :(
I have this habit of making stupid decisions though so I'd probably do it again :(
