Islamaphobia Is Actually An Entirely Logical "Phobia"
Steve Crowder explains in his informative yet lightly comedic way, exactly how fearing murderous jihadists isn't irrational at all like being afraid of pickles or butterflies, given the statistics of the views of Muslims globally as well as the increase of jihads over the last few years. Here are some excerpts:
Islam is a belief system, it isn’t a race. Being alarmed by the tenants of that belief system doesn’t make me a “racist” anymore than putting cream in my coffee makes me a white supremacist.
Islam= one of the three major monotheistic religions (in fact the “newest” monotheistic religion, after Judaism and Christianity) founded in the 7th century AD in the Arabian peninsula. From my dictionary: “The ritual observances and moral code of Islam were said to have been given to Muhammad as a series of revelations, which were codified in the Koran.” Islam is also well-known for its mistreatment of women, the belief that infidels (non-Muslims) must die, and a tendency for factions of Islam to blow people up. Not anecdotal evidence, but purely observable, substantiated data...
Lest you call me a racist bigot, here be some polls from Pew Research…
Told you so.
Contrast Islam with a “Phobia:” an extreme or irrational fear of or aversion to something.
Ummm… okay, so if you’re afraid of something benign, that’s extreme or irrational. Like pickles. Some people actually have a fear of pickles. If you can’t sleep at night because there are pickles in you refrigerator, you’re being irrational and need to seek help. Fair?....
Islam, however, calls for the extermination of non-Muslims. Allow me to clarify. Islam’s holiest prophet, Muhammad, specifically called for the extermination of non-Muslims. Several times. In graphic detail. See, I don’t have an irrational fear of pickles. I have (what I will argue is a healthy) fear of murderers. Specifically murderers who’ve already, very publicly declared that they want to murder me. And you. And pretty much everyone who checks “other” when provided with a Muslim census.
