Here is today’s death threat. It’s interesting to note the double standard once again: Daisy Khan of the Islamic supremacist mega-mosque at Ground Zero said that she had received a death threat, and it was national news. I receive death threats on a more or less daily basis, and send them to law enforcement; I never hear anything back, and the media is no less indifferent. This is a recurring pattern: remember when Seattle cartoonist Molly Norris was threatened over “Everybody Draw Muhammad Day,” she had to leave her job and conceal her identity, at her own expense, and the world yawned.
This double standard reveals several assumptions on the part of the mainstream media: they assume that Muslims are always victims, and thus have no interest in a story that positions Muslims as perpetrators of violence or threats. This meshes with the general journalistic practice of labeling Islamic jihadists as “militants” or “insurgents” or “youths” in news articles. They also assume — and this they would never admit — that Muslims are more given to violence and threats than are non-Muslims. Thus it is not news when Molly Norris or I or any counter-jihadist is threatened, because that’s what Islamic supremacists do. It is only news when a Muslim is threatened, because that’s a man-bites-dog story.
Thus the media double standard reveals an unconscious paternalism that any genuinely peaceful Muslim should decry as an insult. If CAIR’s Honest Ibe Hooper, for example, were really what he claims to be, he would decry death threats against me as vocally and energetically as he decries alleged threats against Muslims. But he won’t, because he isn’t.
The indifference of law enforcement, however, when they have police stationed round-the-clock at the Burlington Coat Factory mosque site, and when they hasten to assure the press that they’re investigating the alleged threats against Khan or any other Muslim leader who claims to be threatened, I cannot explain at all.
