Muslim Americans Again Brace for Backlash After New York Attack

Umer Ahmad, a 43-year-old Muslim-American physician from New Jersey, was in his Trenton office when he heard that a rented pickup truck had deliberately driven down a bike path in Lower Manhattan, killing eight people and injuring about a dozen more.

“My initial reaction was, obviously, concern and shock over what happened,” Ahmad told NBC News. “And then, basically, I was wondering if it was a Muslim who did it.”

But if we wonder “if it was a Muslim who did it”…. RACIST!

    We have the requisite “Muslims fear backlash” article.

    We have the Toronto Star pushing the theory the perp was upset about the plight of the Palestinians (“Saipov would sometimes argue about politics and world affairs, including about Israel and Palestine”).

    Here’s the “Lone Wolf” article:

    All that’s left to come is the “Mentally ill” excuse.

      These stories now are all prewritten, much like the obituaries of famous celebrities. All they have to do is update a few facts, fill in some late breaking details, and run to press.

        Update a few facts? Isn’t it more the case that the media must scrub pertinent facts from their stories?

        • Drunk by Noon ✓

          What & when… stuff like that.
          Has anyone with a LexisNexis account ever done any searching to find out just who wrote that very first Muslims brace for “backlash” story?
          I’d love to know who it was.

  • Persecuted Muslim

    We are the real victims here!

    When is that going to be recognized and when are we going to get reparations for all the systemic Islamophobia?

  • Hard Little Machine

    Mayor Che De Blasio no doubt will hold a press conference telling everyone that they’re going to jail if they so much as roll their eyes at a Muslim now.

    Meanwhile Black on Jew crime in NYC is typically through the roof. Fuck the Muslims, Fuck the news and Fuck De Blasio.

    • shasta

      No – fucking is a pleasurable activity. What you meant was Bugger the Muslims, Bugger the news and Bugger De Blasio.

      • Kevin Spacey

        De Blasio again?

    • bob e

      Why .. there is no black on Jew crime ..

    The key to knowing if a Muhammadan or his descendants are going to be a problem for us or our children is when he self-identifies as a Muhammadan.

    It’s tough living in a country that hates you and wants you replaced. Instead of us getting a new gov’t, the gov’t is getting a new “electorate”.

    Aw yes. The dreaded bacon sandwich on the door step. How will they ever survive.

    Islamophobic Canadians Brace for Backlash After New York Attack

    The backlash that is needed is against a government that is willfully blind and so progressive its collective brain has drained away.

  • David Murrell

    More pro-Muslim propaganda from NBC News. Note that the evil perp was attending a mosque in New Jersey, a mosque known for its radical teachings. Note that the corrupt NBC News doesn’t cover why that mosque is radical, and do any investigative reporting on that front.

      If you can figure out what payouts they get out of Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Turkey, UAE, George Soros and/or the Aga Khan, you will know the answers.

  • Alec Leamas

    The entire Western world is long overdue for a sustained and comprehensive backlash. Islam needs to be crushed and discredited. Same as was nazism and communism. Just another useless and damaging blight on the progress of the human race.

  • Dana Garcia

    One of these days, somebody is going to read about a nonexistent muzho backlash and decide, “They want a backlash?? I’ll show them a backlash.”

    • bob e

      come the day brother, come the day ..

    • k1962

      Well, there was that one time in a Quebec mosque….

  • Tooth&Claw

    Enough. How many incidents like this does it take to understand they’re fighting a guerrilla war against the rest of us?

  • bob e

    As long as these people live among us, these murders will go on.

  • k1962

    What backlash? The backlash of dirty looks? The backlash of a few very brave people who sometimes come out and protest immigration numbers? Oooooh, the backlash. Almost as bad as being blown up or run over and then stabbed. Sick of them.
