This Isn't About Hate.

Two weeks ago a Muslim American organization held a fundraiser in California for women’s shelters, homelessness relief and hunger relief. They were protested by a group of Americans waving flags and yelling through bullhorns. But don’t worry – as one protester clarified, “This is not about hate. We are not hate-mongers.”

Observe the language of…not-hate:

“Mohammad was a child molester. Mohammad was a pervert. Mohammad was a fraud. Mohammad was a false prophet.”

“…I know quite a few [U.S.] Marines who would be very happy to help these terrorists to an early…uh…meeting in paradise.” – Deborah Pauly (Rep.), Villa Park Councilwoman

“You’re a stupid terrorist. Go home! Go home! Go home! No Sharia! Do you beat up your wife, too? Are you a molester? You are, aren’t you? ‘Cuz you just sit there and you’re a coward. You beat your women. Why don’t you go beat up your wife, like you do every night? And then go and have sex with a nine year old and marry her.”

“One nation under God, not Allah! Get out of here! Never forget 9/11!”

“Go home – we don’t want your Sharia law! No Sharia law – US Constitution!”

“Take your Sharia and go home!

“You’re terrorist lovers! Your hands are bloody!

“You’re not welcome here – go home!”

“Terrorists!”

“Traitors!”

“A big part of the problem we face today is that our children have been taught in schools that every idea is right, that no one should criticize others’ positions, no matter how odious, that’s…and, and what do we call that? They call that ‘multiculturalism’, and it has paralyzed too many of our fellow citizens to make the critical judgement we need to prosper as a society.” – Congressman Ed Royce (Rep.)

Protip #1: Muslim does not equal terrorist.

Protip #2: When an elected official says “I don’t even care if you think I’m crazy any more.” as Deborah Pauly did, that’s when it’s time to vote for the other candidate. You know, the one who you don’t think is crazy.

I’m at a loss. How do we address this kind of hatred and ignorance in a productive manner? These are Americans who are screaming and jeering at other Americans based solely on the color of their skin and the clothes they are wearing. These are American who really think that Islam is a religion of hate, that all Muslims are terrorists, that you can’t be Muslim and a “real American”. How do we deal with that?

Wait – I know! Have a Muslim American organization get together to hold a fundraiser to support women’s shelters and alleviate homlessness and hunger in their community!

Nah…that would never work.

    I think the most productive thing to do would be to show up at the rally in a long, white robe. Then, once there, put on your tall, white, pointy hat and hold your sign up high.

    Oh, Benjamin, you are naughty! This behavior just makes me feel sad, angry and worst of all, impotent. I think of the old newsreel of the little African American girl being escorted by US Marshals on her way to school. We haven’t really come very far, have we…

    While I have my own issues with Islam, this was hard to watch. Especially when I saw the kids coming in. No child should ever have to experience that kind of hatred, and no right thinking American would put another through that. It should come as no shock, given our history, but it always does. Thanks for posting this.
