The Curious Cases of Anti-Muslim Backlash That Turned Out To Be False

Americans are constantly warned by mainstream media that our prejudices and intolerance radicalize Muslims.

new study in the journal Personality and Social Science Bulletin finds that the more Muslims feel “dehumanized” by American society, the more inclined they are to support violence and the less inclined they are to assist law enforcement in fighting terrorism. “If we use rhetoric and enact policies that make Muslims feel dehumanized, this may lead them to support exactly the types of aggression” that we hope to discourage, says the study’s coauthor.

This powder-keg narrative is so ingrained that it recurs almost reflexively after every terror attack. And yet the much-predicted backlash never materializes, in spite of a veritable industry promoting the idea.

  • The very idea, so baldly put, that Muslims could be made to feel “dehumanized by American society” should have made it obvious that whatever followed would be of no interest or value. Don’t these embittered dramatizing progressive science
    whores even listen to themselves? American society, whatever its faults and shortcomings has been and is the greatest “humanizer” in history. The only barrier to humanization that a muslim faces in the US is the atavistic resistance to assimilation and the undeserved assumption of Islamic supremacy that pervades their culture. As Winston Churchill wrote:

    “How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries, improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live.
    A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement, the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.
    Individual Muslims may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome.

    When Achmud Mohamhead al Hamhead peers up from his cell phone wire connection project he smiles, “Useful idiots”, he muses.

    This would be amusing if it wasn’t so stupid. Muslims feel they are human and non Muslims are not human. So their dehumanization is just acknowledgment of the fact they’re NOT special.
