Skip to comments.Is the tea-party movement Islamophobic?
Posted on 08/09/2010 1:56:57 PM PDT by ZULU
The current wave of anti-mosque protests around the country represents a new threat to the religious freedom of Muslims in America a threat directed not just at terrorists who act in the name of Islam, but at all Muslims and Islam itself.
Incidents of discrimination and bias aimed at Muslim Americans have been rising since the 9/11 terrorist attacks. But anti-Muslim rhetoric has taken an ominous turn in recent months as a growing number of political and community leaders some with tea-party affiliations have begun warning of a Muslim takeover of America.

In the event you wish to contact Mr. Haynes his e-mail is:
Why haven’t muslims denounce the 9/11/01 attacks and all other acts of terrorism?
Rational people tend to be a bit tetchy around irrational people, especially irrational people who view homicide as a proof of virtue.
No, but the anti-tea-party movement wants to abolish the separation between Islam and state...
If by “Islamophobic” you mean very concerned about zealots who live to impose a psychotic, barbaric “religion” of murder, hatred and thuggery on a free people...then YES. We are indeed Islamophobic.
I don’t trust Cottonmouth Mocassins either, any further than I can spit!
Tell them to suck it up!!
Post a video of Danny Pearl’s murder and ask if that was an illustration of Muslim religious freedom?
I don’t fear Muslims nearly as much as I fear public officials that bend over backwards to accomodate Muslims.
I’m not islamophobic. I don’t fear them.
I hate them.
Was going to email the dweeb but, he probably has never really read the Qoran... Only writes what he hears...
Islam is a political system masquerading as a religion. It leveraged off the Judeo-Christian Bible but was used by a conquering warlord to bring theocratic rule to lands.
Muslims believe in a concept of “muslim territories”. What kind of “tolerant” view is that in an age where universally free people believe in a freedom of religion?
Why have segregated cities under Islam? Why have a total prohibition on other religious texts?
As the Saudis fund Islamic imperialism and the establishment of mosques and training centers in the West, we are right to challenge this concept of “mosque and state” that seeks to usher in Sharia Law.
Sedition does not have to be tolerated. Those who seek to overthrow our government are not allies. Those who seek to applaud the 9-11 jihadists and the Islamic conquest of Spain are not good guys.
Islam as a religion is free to believe whatever it wants. Islam as a political system is not protected. You can discriminate against Republicans, Democrats, Neonazis, and Communists all you want in this nation.
Send “Mr.” Haynes a message expressing your assessment of his elitist attitude towards a homicidal theocratic cult masquerading as a “religion”.
Is the Democrat Party anti-Christian?
Islam is a murdering cult started by a child-molesting murderer. There is everything to fear of a cult that preaches it savage dominance.
Phobic means fearful. Yes, I am fearful of Islam. Hate them? No. Not yet, anyway.
Is the Million Man March antisemitic?
A better headline: Is Islam Christianphobic?
Hmmm, why don’t we ask the 10 Christian missionaries who were bringing medical attention to remote Afghan villages. Oh, yeah, they’re dead.
“phobic” - most misused suffix in the English language today.
Just because you disagree - or even hate - something doesn’t mean you have a FEAR of it.
I hate cauliflower. I guess I’m cauliflowerphobic. Pathetic. Count me as liberalphobic, too. And Obamaphobic.
Has Charles C. Haynes quit beating his wife yet?
Oh hogwash. There are mosques all over America. They can even build this one - just not where they have it planned. Move it away from this particular historic site and build away.
The author of this piece of drivel is either an idiot who can't understand what has been said by those who object, or he's a liar who does understand but is purposefully misrepresenting the objections.
Or he could be like our president and be both an idiot and a liar.
I just regret I posetd this idiotic article at the end of the day. If had seen it earlier, it would have kept going for 12 hours.
The man who wrote this is a perfect example of the kind of elitist liberal fool who has turned academia on its head and by his cultural obtuseness, will destroy western civilization through Burkaphilia.
Is “islamophobic” in the same class of liberal-speak as “racist”? It appears so, for these are words the left finds useful to jab others with, to shut them up and put them down.
I am not “islamophobic”. I understand Islam perfectly. It is a religion that teaches demands that I convert, submit or die. I understand from its own documents that it teaches that it is perfectly fine for its followers to lie and use any subterfuge to advance it. Its own documents say that once a person has accepted it, even when acceptence was done under duress and coercion, that it is a capital crime to recant that acceptance. Futher, it teaches, again from its own documents, that it is the duty of all faithful followers to kill anyone who recants.
When the left (er, “progressives”) claim that saying such makes me “islamophobic”, it says far more about their chaotic thinking than anything else.
One can’t be islamophobic enough these days — show me JUST ONE redeeming value of Islam.
He thinks it is “paranoia” to wonder if things like Dearbornistan are signs of Islamic imperialism in America. We can look at Europe and see how the tide is turning there.
All of it is funded from the same place.
PS, the KGB was in league with US citizens to promote Communism in the West over our Constitutional form of government.
Have you noticed that liberals/Democrats/progressives/commies, and all leftwingers are Dhimmis?
A Real American (Tea Party)
well no...just American
Being pro-freedom is by default islamophobic.
...their supreme Christianphobia endorses their behavior... lets have Church in Mecca!
I think MANY people are waking up, LEARNING, READING ... trying to figure out what the heck is going wrong. This isn't "business as usual" and people sense that ... and because their senses are alert, they start looking around for the source of the danger. Because of 911, the danger is spotted pretty quickly coming from the Muslim world. 911 was an indicator, the terrorist attacks since, Obama and his 'connections' and 'concessions' to the Muslim world ... Iran's noisy talk about nukes and destroying Israel ...again ... it all points toward Mecca!
That the Tea Party folks are sort of singled out for this is also typical ... there is some Islamophobia going on, where could it come from ... look as FAR AWAY philosophically from Shari'a and you'll probably find the local Tea Party Group. So it's a natural connection.
But as America wakes up, (The Tea Party folks may have awoken first), not just to Democrats and Liberals ... it is waking up to the Shari'a threat ... although mostly they don't know what Shari'a is. (For those folks, go to The Patriot's Flag - Shari'a for dar es-salaam). Hopefully people will start looking at the drivers that are causing the danger. The topic will then move from focus on the Tea Party folks to a focus on something far more dangerous coming steadily at us.
Is Judge Walker Islamophobic?
The BBC banned Winston Churchill from the airwaves in the 1930s for speaking out against Nazi Germany. Hollywood shelved scripts that were critical of Nazi Germany in the 1930s for fear of souring a potential foreign film market.
What sane person isn’t?
Political Correctness offends me...
Can I be on your team?
If they really believed in the First Amendment, they would ask questions of why there is no religious freedom in Islam’s homeland. Why is there a standing death penalty for non-muslims who’d dare enter the segregated cities of Mecca and Medina. Why are muslims not permitted to convert away from the cult. Why are no other religious texts permitted.
So much for “free speech”.
A billion muslims bow to Mecca 5 times a day every day. Their capital of their empire. Yet they never bother to speak out against these things.
“islamophobia” is the slanderous label for understanding “mohammedan culture” and categorically rejecting it and its adherents goals.
All I need to know about Islam I learned on 9/11....
P@ss on Islam!.....
