Here’s a new twist: the establishment propaganda media’s narrative that Muslims are always victims is breaking down with the continuing revelations that Muslims have faked “anti-Muslim hate crimes,” and so now ABC doubles down: Muslims are victims, you see, because they fake anti-Muslim hate crimes. They’re driven crazy by “Islamophobia,” doncha know.
“These false reports unfortunately give ammunition to the industry of Islamophobes who promote the demonization and dehumanization of Islamic Muslims,” says Hamas-linked CAIR’s Ibrahim “Honest Ibe” Hooper. “Islamic Muslims,” Ibe? Are there non-Islamic Muslims now? Anyway, note how deftly Hooper plays the victim card even in the process of being exposed for falsely playing the victim card: the fake hate crimes are not a challenge to the veracity or trustworthiness of Muslims; rather, they’re tools in the hands of the alleged “Islamophobes” who supposedly “promote the demonization and dehumanization of Islamic Muslims” — as if its demonizing and dehumanizing someone to ask him to be honest.
Hooper added that the Muslim community “is under great psychological stress and tension right now, and that that in itself can cause mental health issues that lead to these types of incidents.”
Why is the Muslim community, in Hooper’s view, “under great psychological stress and tension”? Because of all the hate crimes against Muslims, you see, which drive Muslims so crazy that they…fake hate crimes against Muslims.
How did Avianne Tan of ABC News keep from laughing right in Hooper’s face? She either kept a straight face because she is a fully indoctrinated true believer in this nonsense, or because she knew her establishment propaganda media bosses would look askance at her thinking critically in the face of Hooper’s ridiculous statements.
“US Muslims Concerned That ‘Few False Reports’ of Hate Crimes Will ‘Unfairly Discredit’ Real Ones,” by Avianne Tan, ABC News, December 22, 2016 (thanks to Ken):
After two reports of anti-Muslim hate crimes were determined to be fake by authorities this month, the Muslim community is concerned that these “few false reports” are going to “unfairly discredit and delegitimize the dozens of real anti-Muslim hate crimes and instances Islamophobia out there,” according to the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC).
“The way our community is treated in the media is unfortunately very monolithic,” MPAC spokeswoman Rabiah Ahmed told ABC News today. “When one person acts out — whether it’s making a false report or some other type of bad behavior — it’s often looked upon as if the whole community is responsible for it, and it’s saddening.”…
Ibrahim Hooper, national communications director for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), told ABC News today that he believes the false reports are “statistically inevitable when you have such a large pool of reports.”
“I think these cases are a function of the tremendous spike in the number of anti-Muslim hate crimes in recent weeks, particularly after the November election,” Hooper said. “As with any type of reporting, a certain small percentage of them are going to turn out to be false.”
Hooper added that he was concerned about how such reports are used against the Muslim-American community at large, which has been hurting and experiencing tremendous levels of fear, especially after the presidential election.
“These false reports unfortunately give ammunition to the industry of Islamophobes who promote the demonization and dehumanization of Islamic Muslims,” he said. “But one or two false reports should not take away from the credibility of dozens of other real ones.”
Hooper also told ABC News that the Muslim community “is under great psychological stress and tension right now, and that that in itself can cause mental health issues that lead to these types of incidents.”
Ahmed echoed Hooper, saying that “we have youth going through a variety of issues” and “the community isn’t immune to all the societal pressures out there that could lead someone to not tell the truth, exaggerate or report a false crime.”
“We, as a community, need to do our best to try and make sure our people are supported and that we’re verifying claims before they’re shared,” she said. “But at the same time, we really are facing an increase in anti-Muslim sentiment and hate crimes, and we need to shed a light on these issues and challenges.”
