Neo-Nazism doesn't discriminate...

Reader comment on item: In Defense of Europe's "Far-Right" Parties
in response to reader comment: Overall agenda vs anti-Islamism

Submitted by Ali Baba, Nov 21, 2018 at 14:33

Islamophobia and Anti-semitism and skin-color based racism are actually inseperable. Any platform that hates one group not for its actions, but for who they are, will inevitably turn on other groups as well. Sooner or later. An attack on a mosque one day will become an attack on a black church the next day and an attack on a synagogue a few days after that. The Pittsburgh synagogue shooting is just the most emphatic example of that.

If Muslims are hated for circumcision, how long before they come after the Jewish bris? If Muslims are hated for being poor and uneducated, how long before they come after dark skinned migrants for being poor and uneducated? If Muslims are hated for insisting on halal food, how long before they come after kosher food?

First they came for the Muslims...
