The word, I mean. Fear of muslims is perfectly reasonable
Merriam-Webster defines a phobia as: “an exaggerated usually inexplicable and illogical fear of a particular object, class of objects, or situation”. So can we finally get rid of the word “Islamophobia” please? Look at the world news section of even fake news outfits like Yahoo or CNN and ask yourself “is being afraid of an ‘allahu akbar’ really illogical or inexplicable?” Even a cursory understanding of history and current events will tell you that it’s pretty logical and entirely explicable.
According to thereligionofpeace.com there have been 41 attacks (8 suicide blasts) in 13 countries killing 225 and injuring 199 between April 29, 2017 and May 5, 2017. Ben Shapiro crunched the numbers vis-a-vis “moderate” vs “radical” muslims and the results are legitimately scary.
Further, the idiots who throw around “islamophobia” like to claim it’s dangerous to be muslim in the West because of hate crimes. I could point out that a muslim is most likely to be killed by another muslim, but that’s the week argument. The strong argument is that there are no hate crimes against muslims in the West. Know how I know? Because every single supposed hate crime gets nonstop media coverage up to the point that it’s revealed that it was a hoax perpetrated by muslims. If you’re unaware of this: seriously, read something other that Buzzfeed listicles. I’m not saying that this will be the case in perpetuity because the harder and longer you push people, the greater the inevitable pushback (see: the Crusades).
I understand that the common usage of “blankophobia” these days is just shorthand for “people who don’t like what progressives like” (don’t think kindergarteners should be taught about anal fisting? You’re a homophobe! You think mentally ill people with severe body dysmorphia should be given compassionate mental health treatment instead of cancer-causing hormone therapy and dangerous surgery? You’re a transphobe!) but seriously, islamophobia has to be the stupidest. My suggestion for forcing the retirement of this singularity of progressive retardation is to point and laugh every time someone uses it. Every. Single. Time. Eventually the message will penetrate even the densest of progressive skulls.
TL;DR summation: it wasn’t that long, read the damn thing.
