No, that title is not something I request from beloved boyfriend. It is my response to the political correctness that is already killing us. (Edit Dec. 16, 09, it is borrowed from a passage in John's earlier post.)
Raise your hand if you are bracing for the backlash in America against Muslims.
Those who raised your hands, stop paying so much attention to the mainstream media and your stupid liberal friends. As Michael C. Moynihan points out in great detail at the Reason blog: We Don't Do Backlashes. Remember all that backlash after 9/11? Right, none save for one lone nut who murdered a Sikh, was caught and prosecuted, as Moynihan mentions.
However, the other backlash has begun. Islamic fringe backlash against anybody who doesn't join with them in Jihad. That is how has earned 13 charges of premeditated murder. And then there is this latest event (via Christopher Logan): Backlash in California: Muslim at mall kiosk tears crucifix from shopper's neck, shouts "Allah is power". There is some good old tolerance for you.
Police arrested 22-year-old Abdul Walid Hamid of Hayward on the evening of Wednesday, Nov. 4, after he reportedly tore a crucifix from a person's neck and scared others at Stoneridge Shopping Center.
Hamid, an employee at a mall kiosk near Starbucks, has been charged with battery, terrorist threats and grand theft.
According to reports, Hamid was yelling "Allah is power" and "Islam is great" while holding a pen in a fist over his head. Witnesses said he shouted anti-Christian comments, said police.
Lt. Mike Elerick of the Pleasanton Police Department said the man was not provoked and didn't threaten violence, but he committed robbery when he grabbed and broke a crucifix off someone's neck.
Coworkers told police that Hamid's actions were out of the ordinary and that he had worked at the kiosk for years.

More from Michael's article, an excellent comment on a personal experience by Ratko:
Now I realize Libs are imbeciles, they hate America, and have no confidence in Americans whatsoever, they can't change any of that, but, they can do this:
QUIT SCARING THESE PEOPLE FOR NO DAMN GOOD REASON THEY'VE DONE NOTHING TO YOU SO LEAVE THEM THE HELL ALONE!!
See what lead to the shouting at the link in his handle. It is an amazing and uplifting story. The people of this country, almost to the person, do exactly what Ratko did. The give support to their friends.
You don't have to remind me. Facts don't matter, emotions matter to these people who are trying to scare us into surrender. Looking at you New York Times and MSNBC.
New info December 29, 2009: Now we have the Pantybomber, fresh from terrorist school in Yemen. Exploding bloomers photos here. Any "backlash" yet? The airlines let a person, already on watch lists in England and the US, get on TWO international flights without a passport, no problem. Wouldn't want to seem harsh or anything. Don't bother taking away his US Visa either!
Whip toss to Amy Alkon.
