‘Islamophobia’ joins the Rainbow Coalition: the newest social justice warriors

“Same-sex marriage bans” and “anti-sharia/anti-‘foreign law'” bills seek “to disenfranchise historically marginalized groups,” according to the Institute for Social Policy and Understanding (ISPU)’s latest “Islamophobia” study, “Islamophobia: A Threat to All.”

An audience of around fifty at a recent panel discussion on the study at Georgetown University’s Prince Alwaleed bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding (ACMCU) witnessed an unconvincing attempt to integrate combatting “Islamophobia” into a broad leftist coalition.

The study’s “manufacturing bigotry” section analyzes correlations between “restrictive legislative agendas” in American state legislatures across six areas: “voter identification,” “immigration laws,” “right-to-work,” “laws restricting abortion rights and access,” and the aforementioned topics.

Assessing the study, panel moderator Dalia Mogahed—ISPU research director and longstanding anti-Israel apologist for radical Islam—proclaimed that an “injustice to one is really a threat to all.” ISPU, she added, is however “focused on the Muslim-American community.”

Lead study researcher Saeed Khan dismissed American alarm over sharia law encroachments as prejudice.

      It isn’t ‘religious, theocratic fascism’ when Muslims do it.

      That’s because your friend considers Muslims to be ‘officially designated victims’, rather than the callous perpetrators and misogynists they truly are.

    Maybe all the Muslim organizations will support the Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals and Transgendered now in return and call Iran to stop executing Gays and Lesbians every day in Iran.

    The name of that center at Georgetown tells me all I need to know about its activities. A once great university sold its soul to the Saudi devil for a substantial endowment.
