Andrea Mitchell: American Muslims 'Understandably' Very Worried About Backlash
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 04/22/2013 12:51:28 PM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest

Everyone knows about the terrible backlash against America Muslims after 9-11, so it's understandable for Muslims to be worried about a post-Boston bombing backlash, right?

What? There was no major backlash against Muslims in 2001 or thereafter? American Jews suffer far more religion-based attacks than Muslims every year? Then why did Andrea Mitchell today exclaim that Muslims were "understandably" very worried about a backlash?

Since we never trusted them, it is not a new backlash.

American kow-towing to Islam in the years after 9/11 achiev3ed nothing except to embolden the enemy.

You’d think people would finally learn the lesson.

Who’s in more danger -

a Muslim in America,
or a Christian in ANY Muslim country?

Duh...

Yes, you’d get some of the more obtuse liberals who are so married to their ideology that they’d deny the truth even when it makes them look silly.

Well, okie dokey...how about American Muslims speaking out against bombing civilians...that what be one helluva start, I’m just saying. Let’s hear a strong unified condemnation ageist blowing up little kids from the American Muslim community and we can go from there — no condemnation...silence is suspect in my book. But that is just my opinion.

Did I miss something after 9/11? Were Muslims being targeted, injured, killed or ANYTHING after that attack? For God’s sake Andrea, people come here because we ARE tolerant, TOO tolerant and they take advantage of us you dumb ass!!!!

Muslims will have to start worrying if the government starts bungling these cases and the public comes to believe they cannot protect us against terrorism.

On that day ten thousand Charles Bronsons will bloom.

Today worried, tomorrow even more victim status and "reparations" for the anguish they had to suffer because some whites may have looked at them.
Muslims are a lot safer here than Americans or Christians in any Muslim country.

“If they are worried about a backlash then they should stop blowing shit up...”

Exactly! By the way, wouldn’t it be interesting to know what B. Hussein Obama’s immediate, and I mean immediate, reaction was to hearing of the MUSLIM TERRORIST attack?

What freaking backlash? Were thousands of Muslims hunted down and slaughtered? Were mosques around the US bombed? What backlash? The ATTITUDE that Americans had for people that murdered innocent Americans? That backlash? Yeah, not sorry for that.

Because she is a useful idiot for stealth Jihadists. Psy ops - a favorite tool in their bag of tricks.

The Jihadist victimizer, by shrieking about non-existent backlash, becomes the victim.

Two things we can ALWAYS count on after a terror attack:

1. MSNBC will sympathize with the enemy.
2. The New York Times will sympathize with the enemy.

As I was thinking.

I don’t recall Muslims being hounded through the streets after 9/11.

A few Sikhs got beat up because the jerks who did it didn’t know what a Sikh was.

As they should be.

Haven’t heard a lot of Muslims saying “Those guys don’t represent Islam. They are evil and they deserve whatever happens to them.”

If Muslims wish to remove the stain they need to clean house.

Muslim woman in Malden MA said she got punched in the shoulder and sworn at near the Orange Line Station. I live here. City Hall is across the street. So is the Police Department and two banks. It was in the morning when this is the busiest part of town and loaded with cameras. Yet NO ONE saw this incident which allegedly went on for two minutes!

Hey, after THIS and 9-11 and the nutjob on the military base in Texas, I don’t give a rat’s @$$ about what some damn Muslim’s backlash concerns are .

As a matter of fact, neither should any other American.

There SHOULD be a backlash. We should stop these maniacs from coming in here and watch those that are here so damn closely they decide to crawl back to the desert which spawned them.

They can't keep pushing the envelope forever without one happening sooner or later. When it does, it will be global. And it will make the Holocaust look like a Sunday picnic.

My daddy always told me don't go pickin' a fight when you're outnumbered 6:1.

I understand. My comment was directed at Andre Mitchell. I think she believes there was a terrible backlash. Americans have been very restrained. Thanks for the post.

What more do they want?

Here’s the “Backlash”:
Muslims slaughtered 3,000 on 9/11 so the the US government increased the number of muslims immigrants we take in every year.

America gives muslims like the two Boston Bombers scholarships to the best colleges in the world.
Colleges which, incidentally, exist because they are partially subsidized by American taxpayers.

Muslims hold something like 90% of the taxi driver jobs in NY City.

Muslims demand, and get, special work rules to accommodate them at businesses nationwide.

Cities like Boston give muslims sweetheart deals on land purchases, zoning waivers and building permits to build their mosques through which they spread hate and militancy.

Muslims are buying up all the pizzerias in the country.

We have a muslim in the senate, a muslim in congress, a muslim in the White House.

Muslims are everywhere - we can’t get away from them anymore.

If there is any more backlash like we have seen since 9/11 we’ll soon be finding muslims in our sock drawers.

Correct....muslims need to clean house but they won’t.....it is sharia and its written.

Their silence tells us all we need to know about muslims....other than that, they are also liars pursuant to their book.

Maybe if CAIR cooperated with the community and became more of the “melting pot” there would not be the fear of a backlash. Muslims choosing self segregation and Not correcting hate speech in their own community is the problem.
