We have seen the future, and it sucks.

Fake Anti-Muslim Backlash

12th March 2017

Read it.

Americans are constantly warned by mainstream media that our prejudices and intolerance radicalize Muslims.

This powder-keg narrative is so ingrained that it recurs almost reflexively after every terror attack. And yet the much-predicted anti-Muslim backlash never materializes, in spite of a veritable industry promoting the idea.

In point of fact, American society is incredibly tolerant of Muslims and even Islamists. FBI statistics still show that most anti-religious hate crimes in the US are perpetrated against Jews. Even in the days following the election of Donald Trump, when the media was ablaze with talk of anti-Muslim backlash, Muslims constituted just 6 percent of “hate crimes” documented by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), one of the loudest voices warning of so-called “Islamophobia” in recent years.

What has been occurring with increasing regularity, though, is the appearance of a backlash against Muslims perpetrated by Muslims themselves.
