Islamophobia

What is the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the words, terrorism? 9/11? ISIS? The Taliban? While these examples are certainly just, they don’t always represent terrorism in its entirety.

When injuries are imagined and retribution seems easy, this happens where...

The GOP national convention will be even more Trumpist than 2016 as many major party figures will not be participating.

A “virulently racist” Trump has made the nation seem like Stockholm Syndrome’s identifying with the terrorist, as Mary Trump doesn’t underestimate the Trump family’s vindictiveness. The last question by Rachel Maddow was concern for Mary Trump’s personal safety, now that the book is now generally available; she’s taken precautions. Denial is...

More Trump whining and preparing for the post-Trump days by building that Trump media channel audience for more grifting with many minor outlets beyond Fox News.

Considering there are as many tweets as lies and falsehoods, perhaps we could do with four years of no tweets (other than actual official WH tweets). A candidate who would promise not to be so stupid might actually get votes for simply promising not to tweet after election day 2020....

Received this e-mail today from the Pennsylvania Democratic Party: The Republican nominee for PA Senate District 33 has no plan to help Pennsylvania. What he has instead is a scare-campaign built on bigotry, lies, and lunacy. Just in recent days, he's repeated dangerous lies about abortion, spread homophobia and Islamophobia, and...

ICE was created from the ill-conceived “Patriot Act” in 2003.  In the wake of rampant Islamophobia, immigration changed overnight from being an economic/labor issue to a national security issue.  The newly created ICE was headed by men who had spent years working anti-terrorism, and brought this mind-set to overseeing immigrants and...

There is a rather disconcerting idea touted by so-called progressives on the order of: Islamophobia is on the rise in the West: most particularly in Europe and the United Sates. The idea itself presupposes that there is such a phenomenon as Islamophobia and that it is some nefarious and specious...
