How The Right Frames Muslims Through An Islamophobic Lens

Islamophobes see Muslims through a lens of hate, loathing, irrational fear and anger. This is why they are susceptible to the stupidities of seeing the following picture as a display of casual ambivalence/apathy in the face of horror.:

This is because they don’t view Muslims as human beings but rather as the demonic “other.” It’s also why they can’t make the connection of ambivalence and apathy when someone who looks like them, like this white guy walks past a victim.:

This is the general way bigots operate. Casually dehumanizing others. Maybe Mr. Texas Lone Star is hoping to hit it big and be the male Tomi Lahren.

    Tomi Lahren has been fired by the Blaze. I don’t thing she is going away. Her next stop is going to be co-hosting The View.

    If “terrorism” were rationally defined….

    “Terrorism is the war of the poor, and war is the terrorism of the rich.” – Peter Ustinov

    I can’t believe how people link terrorist incidents to Islam. It’s obviously just pure coincidence that the perpetrators just happen to be muslim.

    It’s not a coincidence, it just isn’t Islam. A “terrorist” is just a criminal whose crime becomes a big media event to foster a political agenda. The fact that so many of them are “Muslim” (or at least from a Muslim background) has to do partly with the labeling process itself as well as the fact that Muslims are prime targets for patsy-seekers from both sides of the law.

    These right-wing racist bigots should read their history. In Islam’s 1400 years never has a single act of violence taken place in the name of the religion of peace.

    Any act of violence done in the name of religion does not necessarily have anything to do with the religion itself or its adherents as a whole, regardless of what the religion is.

    If it’s only recent events that has given rise to violence from within Islam then like I said before in Islam’s 1400 year history there shouldn’t be any acts of violence whatsoever. But is this really the case?

    And there hasn’t been. Islam is a religion after all, not a person.

    You mean like the muslim conquests of Persia, Russo, Turkey, Egypt, Africa, Iberia, India, Balkans just to name a few? You criticise western nations for imperialism but quicky forget (or are ignorant to) your own bloody history.

    That’s hardly a fair comparison, since conquering enemy territories was a universally-established status quo 1400 years ago and was sometimes necessary for security, while today, there are international laws, treaties, and regulations governing such matters that render such actions totally unnecessary. Not only is the context different, but so is the process itself, as the conquests of medieval Christian Europeans were quite different to the conquests of medieval Muslim Arabs.

    Just a little bit of Math here.. I know you Right winger idiots hate math and numbers. Attack on 9/11/2001 killed 2,996 people That caused enough anger to create 2 full scale invasions of 2 different country and a full Global war on terrorism( DRONES KILLING CAPTURE ) .Military recruitment ramped up after Sept. 11 attacks due to anger from the attacks.
    Various scientific surveys of Iraqi deaths resulting from the first four years of the Iraq War( NOTHING TO DO WITH 9/11 ) estimated that between 151,000 and over one million Iraqis died as a result of conflict during this time
    1,000,000
    – 2996
