Or does Trump need protecting from Muslims?
By Daniel Greenfield, FPM
After an Islamic terror attack, Americans are told that they’re foolish and fearful to worry about the type of Islamic terrorism that just filled a local morgue with bodies. Instead of focusing on the families of the dead, the media coverage sharply pivots to a million stories about Muslims who claim to be terrified of a “backlash” from Americans and must be protected from the threat of this imaginary backlash.
When Americans worry about being murdered by the Islamic terrorist next door, they are accused of “giving in to fear”, but when Muslims claim that they’re terrorized by the occasional dirty look, that’s not only a legitimate fear, but actually rises to the level of a national crisis.
Never mind the American corpses, let’s focus on the Muslim hurt feelings.
After Trump suggested that maybe we shouldn’t be bringing tens of thousands of Syrians to this country when 13% of them poll as ISIS supporters (that’s 1,300 for each batch of 10,000 Syrians), Muslims Brotherhood front groups and their media allies swiftly began their victimhood theater.
Donald J. Trump has killed zero Americans or even Muslims in terrorist attacks. Meanwhile Muslims have killed 9,983 Americans.
Determining whether Trump or Muslims are the bigger threat is a matter of simple math.
But the media dismisses the threat of Islamic terrorism and urges the country to panic over Trump. And it never questions the credibility of the Muslims who whine that they need protection from Trump.
On ABC News, CAIR boss Nihad Awad complained that Trump was fueling anti-Muslim sentiment. No one at ABC asked him about the time he said, “I am in support of the Hamas movement”.
Nihad Awad openly supported Islamic terrorism and made anti-Semitic remarks. And yet the media acted as if the pro-terrorist activist needed protection from Trump, when it’s Americans who need protection from Awad and his cronies.
“Donald Trump must be held partially responsible for the spike in anti-Muslim hate crimes and discrimination we have witnessed since the Paris terror attacks,” Awad insisted.
Does that mean that Awad and CAIR are responsible for Islamic attacks on Jews?
CAIR spokesman Ibrahim Hooper claimed, “Trump’s statement has really given tacit permission to that minority of bigots out there to go after Muslims.”
Hooper had previously claimed that Al Qaeda attacks on America had been caused by “misunderstandings of both sides” and had said that he wants Islam to dominate America.
CAIR’s founder had said, “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran is the highest authority in America, and Islam is the only accepted religion on earth.”
Instead of asking even the most basic questions of Trump’s Muslim accusers, the media whitewashes Islamist spokesmen with a history of supporting terrorism and runs puff pieces on Muslim crybullies.
In the latest bout of manufactured Muslim crybullying, the media eagerly reported that “U.S. service members are using the hashtag #IWillProtectYou to show support for a young Muslim girl …read more
