Media Matters Pushes ‘Anti-Muslim Hate Crime’ Myth

November 12, 2009

“Anti-Muslim hate crimes” are apparently soaring, but don’t worry: those crack investigators at the George Soros Steno Pool otherwise known as Media Matters are on the case.

And they’re angry at Rush Limbaugh for daring to mock this epidemic of violence:

Referring to remarks by Gen. George Casey regarding potential backlash against Muslims in the military in the wake of the Fort Hood shootings, Rush Limbaugh claimed: “There is no backlash against Muslims in America. Zip, zero, nada.” Limbaugh’s claim that “there is no backlash against Muslims in America” is undermined by a 2002 FBI hate crimes analysis that found that “[a]nti-Islamic religion incidents” in 2001 increased “by more than 1,600 percent over the 2000 volume,” and a San Francisco Chronicle article reported that “[h]ate crimes against Muslims soared after Sept. 11.”

Media Matters conveniently overlooks the fact that many of those “hate crimes” turned out to be attention-getting hoaxes.

And that, according to the most recent data available, from 2007, “the number of hate crimes against Muslims have significantly decreased since 9-11 from nearly 500 a year to 115 a year.”

And Jews are exponentially more likely to be victims of “hate crimes” than Muslims. Lots of angry Amish anti-Semites out there, I guess.

PS: according to the FBI, there are almost seven times more “anti-white” “hate crimes” than “Islamophobic” “hate crimes.” Whatever they are. (Beating them up with an L.L. Bean catalogue? Stealing their Beck records?) Regardless, I doubt Media Matters will be “analyzing” that raging “epidemic” any time soon.

      Actually Monica, they will execute us both for being able to speak our minds. So, you don’t have to worry about the quality of your life under Sharia law.

    Of course this is the path the lefty death cult takes for their fellow killing comrades.
    “Media Masochists” has no option but to deny Islam is at fault. To admit it would cause a multicultural PC breakdown in Socialist land.
    No, there youths or the pilloried poor . At Fort Hood the guy was insane before he was insane syndrome.
    Reality has to take a back seat to delusion.
    Can’t they just face reality & call this pseudo-Religion what its is. A thuggee death cult with aspirations to kill anyone who disagrees than take over the World for a continuous orgy of killing for virgins, by these Evil mutilating sadistic killers. Using a phony Religion for psychotic reasons to kill. Salvation in Islam is only known for sure. When you have killed an unbeliever. Torture for especially Jews is recommended!!! This we should respect? Should allow even?
    Our leaders are fools who inknown to them are as close as a razor to losing their own heads by these maniacs.

    Has anyone considered how much time and effort the folks at Media doesn’t- Matters spend on developing their insane perspectives and then translate them to print. They must all go home with splitting headaches from banging their heads against the wall in an attempt to deny, rationalize and subvert the obvious.So, I will make an effort to be kind to all the chillin’ at Media Matters and will send a new box of crayons with a new book of connect the dot cartoons for them to play with. I am with-holding the aspirin however. I am not that generous. The evil is not only among us, it has a computer, audience and sits comfortably in a cozy office owned by George Soros spewing out the hatred, lies and venom that has infected our society.The truth is the anti-venom.
