How many more self-pitying Muslim supremacist crybabies are the mainstream media going to shove down Americans’ throats before they realize that the reason people hate Muslims is not because of the actions of a few, but because of the constant violent, bigoted, anti-American, anti-Christian/Jewish behavior of the many all around the world?
CNN With Adele’s song “All I Ask” playing in the background, a Maryland Muslim teenager opened her computer and wrote an emotional letter to Barack Hussein Obama, her favorite Muslim.
Last year, as part of an honors research project on identity crises among Muslim teenagers in America, Aleena spent hours online combing through public comments on news articles about Muslims. What she read shocked her. (Get used to it, cupcake)
“Kick them all out and put the rest in detainment camps. Enough with the PC feces,” said one commenter. “The only peaceful and moderate Muslims are the dead ones,” said another. The tweet from the man wearing military camouflage was the worst, Aleena said.

@PatDollard We have all those FEMA camps just sitting there empty.

Aleena sat on the floor of her room, stunned. These people were talking about her mother, her father, her sisters, her cousins, her friends. They were talking about her. If it were just one comment, she could ignore it. But there were so many. (Much more than you could ever imagine)
Scholars say anti -Muslim hatred seems to surge after attacks by Muslim extremists and during presidential campaigns, when candidates pledge to get tough on terrorists, often by singling out Muslims. Just this week, after a Muslim man was charged with detonating bombs in New York and New Jersey and another was accused of stabbing 10 people in Minnesota, GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump urged local police officers to profile “suspicious” people, “like they do in Israel.”
“Do we really have a choice?” Trump said. “We’re trying to be so politically correct in our country, and this is only going to get worse.”
Even before the recent attacks, American Muslims lived under a dark cloud of suspicion. In 2014, they surpassed atheists as the country’s “least accepted” religious group. (And getting even lower everyday)
Between September 11, 2001 and the end of last year, 344 Muslim have been involved in
violent extremism Islamic terrorism, according to the Triangle Center on Terrorism and Homeland Security. That number does not include attacks from this year, such as the shooting at an Orlando nightclub by Omar Mateen, who killed 49 gay people. That number does not include all the Muslim involved in terrorist plots that have been averted by police and the FBI.
Aleena wrote her letter to Obama on February 3, the day of his first visit to an American mosque as President, a date many Muslims believe was too long in coming. She thanked Obama for his faith in Muslim-Americans. It was like an oxygen tank, she told the President, allowing her to breathe a big sigh of relief. (Not so fast, he’ll be gone soon, and then you won’t have your muslim in the White House)
