A few days before the San Bernardino shootings, President Obama reacted to Donald Trump's proposal to bar Muslims entry into the U.S. by saying, "It is the responsibility of all Americans––of every faith––to reject discrimination. It is our responsibility to reject religious tests on who we admit into this country . . . Muslim Americans are our friends and our neighbors, our co-workers, our sports heroes." Attorney General Loretta Lynch went even further. In an address at the Muslim Advocates dinner, she commented,
"Now obviously this is a country that is based on free speech, but when it edges towards violence, when we see the potential for someone . . . lifting that mantle of anti-Muslim rhetoric, or, as we saw after 9/11, violence against individuals who may not even be Muslims but may be perceived to be Muslims . . . When we see that, we will take action"––or as she warns, "They will be prosecuted."
How is that Muslims have become "snowflakes" like those pampered college students so traumatized by opposing points of view that they need "safe spaces" from speech they don't like, and demand scrapping the First Amendment? For an answer, look to another progressive "thought-blocker," "Islamophobia."
