Zowie! AP says that there has been “immediate” anti-Muslim “backlash” following the mass murders by an Islamic jihadist at Fort Hood! Good gravy, what happened? Did armed bands of furious Islamophobes throw molotov cocktails at mosques? Did ferocious white supremacists maul fragile little girls in hijabs on their way to school? Did angry bigots spit at pious imams quietly going about their business?
Has there been any report of any innocent, random Muslim being attacked in a “backlash” after the Fort Hood jihad?
Nope. Not one. Americans are decent people. Americans believe people are innocent until proven guilty. But Ibrahim Hooper and his fellow thugs at CAIR need hate crimes so that they can claim victim status for Muslims and deflect attention away from such small matters as the jihad at Fort Hood, and they have the clueless and/or complicit mainstream media in their hip pocket. And so we witness the strange phenomenon of stories of Muslims fearing a backlash far outnumbering actual incidents of backlash. In fact, the score is about umpteen to zero.
And in the AP story linked above, all we get after the promise of news of “immediate” backlash are various stories about mosques and Muslims asking for special police protection, etc. So in reality, the story should be headlined, “Muslims claim victim status in wake of Fort Hood jihad attack,” or “Muslim victimhood whining immediate after Fort Hood jihad massacre,” or some such.
But the only actual incidents of “backlash” that AP can come up with are incidents in which people like me call the Fort Hood massacre a jihad attack — as if it is “Islamophobic” and hateful to note that a guy shouting “Allahu akbar” as he gunned people down, and who gave out Korans hours before he started shooting people, and who expressed sympathy for suicide attackers, may just have been motivated by the Islamic jihad doctrine of warfare against unbelievers.
If that’s “backlash,” I’m Barack Obama. That’s actually something known as “honest reporting.” But what would AP know about that?
