Washington Post: After Muslim cop shoots unarmed woman, Muslims “brace for backlash”

Now the Post is reinforcing the idea that Muslims are victims who must be accorded special solicitude by publishing yet another story about how Muslims, after an atrocity committed by a Muslim, are fearing “backlash” from non-Muslims that seldom, if ever, actually materializes. Articles like this one only reinforce the fiction that Muslims in the U.S. are facing widespread persecution. That perception leads to phenomena such as the hiring of Mohamed Noor by the police, and his remaining on the force despite his manifest incompetence. And so now Justine Damond is dead, but instead of realizing what it is perpetrating and changing course, the Post just starts the cycle all over again.
