    Islamophobia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    This is from wiki - I know. :cool:

    I was just thinking about how "Islamophobia" seems to be the buzzword insult of month thrown around by the liberal elite. Is it really an insult? Do people care if they are labeled as such whether it is or isn't true?

    Will "Islamophobic rhetoric" be considered hate speech and outlawed as they are trying to do in parts of Europe? The U.N. would like to see that.

    NO JUSTIFICATION FOR HATE SPEECH OR INCITEMENT, SAYS SECRETARY-GENERAL IN STRONG CONDEMNATION OF ‘ANTI-ISLAMIC’ FILM

    Islamophobia is the left's way of siding with the enemy without feeling guilty about it.

    Is burning a Koran "Islamophobic" or is deciding not to in fear of Muslim outrage "Islamophobic"? Is protesting the mosque "Islamophobic" or claiming that doing so would threaten national security "Islamophobic"? Is showing Mohammed on South Park or editing the cartoon out of fear..?

    It seems to be the word is hardly an insult no matter which side you are on. Nothing "irrational" about that.

    If they continue to use the word it will take on negative connotations similar to homophobia.
