Obama at Islamic Society of Baltimore: “Muslim Americans keep us safe”
Thursday, February 04, 2016
The apotheosis of the Muslim victimhood myth. FBI hate crime statistics show that the hysteria over “Islamophobia” is unfounded, but that matters not at all to Barack Obama.
“Obama rebuts anti-Muslim rhetoric in first U.S. mosque visit,” by Kevin Liptak, PJ Media, February 3, 2016: (CNN)Seeking to rebut what he
views as perilous election-year bombast about Muslims, President Barack
Obama is at a mosque in Baltimore on Wednesday, his first visit to such a
site in the United States.
“Muslim Americans keep up [sic] safe,”
Obama told the audience, crediting the contributions Muslims have made
to communities. “They are our police. They are our fire fighters.
They’re in (the Department of) Homeland Security.”
And remember: none of them were screened
for jihadi sympathies. To have done so would have been “Islamophobic,”
and transgressed against the prevailing dogma that Islam is a Religion
of Peace that non-Muslims are wrong and bigoted to be concerned about.
