There It Is: Obama Administation More Worried About Islamophobia Than Terrorism


That actually happened quicker than I would have guessed. I’m surprised some Muslim rights group hasn’t painted a swastika on a mosque or taken another clock to school. It’s only a matter of time before there are manufactured incidents of Islamophobia to play on this.

But yes friends, the Obama Administration seems far more worried about Islamophobia and global warming than actual terrorists shooting up Americans.

With terrorist attacks in Paris and a shooting spree in California prompting alarm on the part of many Americans, Attorney General Loretta Lynch said Thursday that her “greatest fear” is that expressions of anti-Muslim sentiment will lead to attacks on Muslims in the U.S.

“The fear that you have just mentioned is in fact my greatest fear as a prosecutor, as someone who is sworn to the protection of all of the American people, which is that the rhetoric will be accompanied by acts of violence,” Lynch told a dinner hosted by a Muslim civil rights organization. “My message to not just the Muslim community but to the entire American community is: we cannot give in to the fear that these backlashes are really based on.”

These people are not serious.
