Part of the insanity from the Left this past election has been the claim that we’re going to see a wave of anti-Muslim bigotry sweep the nation if Trump were to win the election. He did win, and we haven’t seen such a wave. We’ve only seen a number of over-hyped anecdotes, few which had actually been reported to police, and many which existed no where except on social media.
It’s hilarious, because Trump got three times as many votes from Muslims than Mitt Romney. If Trump is a gigantic Islamophobe, Muslims certainly don’t seem to think so. But the media narrative persists. Now CNN, the Clinton News Network, is jumping on the bandwagon. As the Daily Caller reported, Americans should wear hijabs to show solidarity with Muslim women who fear being attacked for wearing the religious head covering, according to CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota.
“Maybe there will be a movement where people wear the head scarf in solidarity. You know, even if you’re not Muslim,” Camerota said during an early-morning broadcast on CNN’s “New Day.”
“Maybe it’s the way people shave their heads, you know, sometimes in solidarity with somebody who is going through something,” she added.
Camerota was responding to a CNN segment about Muslim women who say they live in fear of being verbally or physically attacked for wearing head scarves.
I’m a bit confused as to what the logic is here. “We think Muslims are going to get attacked for wearing headscarves, so let’s get even more women to wear them and put them in danger!”
Of course, The segment tied a spate of alleged incidents in which Muslim women have been targeted for wearing hijabs to Donald Trump’s presidential win. “The Trump Transition: Fearful Muslim women take steps to be safe,” read the chyron that CNN chose for the segment.
Enough will the drama already. Why don’t liberals stop with this nonsense and get back to doing what they’re best at, like defending dictators like Fidel Castro.
