Internet, Radio, Blamed for Anti-Islamic Discrimination

Now here's a ridiculous bit of news from the AP I found reported on Earthlink...the Council on American-Islamic Relations is blaming a rise in "hate crimes" and "civil rights violations" against Muslims on talk radio and internet chat. The proof?

"Whenever there is a beheading or act of terrorism overseas that involves Muslims, we see a rise in reported incidents here," said Ibrahim Hooper, a spokesman for the council. (Emphasis mine).

There, you see? Clearly this is the fault of talk radio and bloggers...if we would stop being so judgmental about some innocent beheadings, the anti-Islamic sentiment would immediately vanish...WHAT IN THE WORLD ARE THESE IDIOTS THINKING? No doubt it is a shame that civil rights complaints reported to the Council are on the rise, but maybe if they want to blame that on somebody they should point to the LOONS cutting off peoples' heads, not bloggers?

UPDATE--over at Atlas Shrugs there is now also a report that the rise in "hate crimes" tallied up by CAIR is wildly overstated...check it out!
