Tomi Lahren is wrong on Muslims.

Standard

Tomi Lahren wants to prevent any Muslim refugees from being admitted to the United States. It is surely un American to discriminate against people on the basis of their faith. The USA boasts that it invented religious freedom. Not quite true since many states had laws that discriminated against those who were not part of the state church well into the 19th century.

What is Miss Lahren’s reason for being against Muslims from being allowed to claim asylum in the USA.

The man who allegedly carried out the attack at Ohio State University is a Muslim. His supposed reasons for allegedly committing these crimes is that he was enraged by the mistreatment of Muslims in the United States. Her rants against Muslims contribute to the anti Muslim hatred. This then causes the murder of Muslims in the United States.

There is no question that the attacks in OSU were horrific. These murders are heinous. These horrors should not be exploited by demagogues by her.

”This is everything to do with Allah Akbar.” Miss Lahren is too ignorant to know the most famous slogan of Islam which is ”Allahu Akbar.” It seems that she knows very little about Muslims. As she has very vociferously voiced her opinions on Muslims she should at least educate herself about these people. There are almost 2 000 000 000 Muslims. They are from all walks of life and all nationalities. They include all personality types.

There are at least 10 000 000 murders a year in the United States. The vast majority of them are not carried out by Muslims. Most of these murders are committed by whites and Christians. Is Christianity evil? Is Miss Lahren responsible for these crimes since she professes the same religion as the perpetrators of these crimes?

She suggests that Islamophobia is not real. It very much is. She is one who disseminates it. This leads to Muslims being insulted and discriminated against.

Is radical Christianity not to blame? White supremacists are usually fervent Christians. Christian fundamentalists are usually those most enthusiastic about killing people abroad.

What about the Muslims who are American citizens? They have as much right to reside there as Miss Lahren. Should they be discriminated against?

How can Muslim refugees be prevented from coming to the USA? How would you know if someone is a Muslim? Hint Muslims are a faith and not a race. Bosnian refugees are as white as can be. Anyone can convert to that faith. One would have to ask people if they are Muslim. SOmeone coming to the USA with the intention of committing a crime would surely be willing to lie about his faith.

La Lahren focuses only on the tiny minority of crimes committed by those who believe in Islam. She ignores all the other murders. What actuates these terrorists? Their cause is due to economic, political, social, national, territorial and yes religious reasons. It is revolting to demonise a religion like this. Muslims are the victims of ISIS and the Taleban.

How about Christians in Muslim lands? Her rhetoric will increase hostility towards them. What about Americans in Muslim countries? Ill feeling towards them is provoked by this woman’s screeds.

Miss Lahren says that the USA lets in hundreds of Muslim refugees a day. Is that true? What is her source. If it was even 100 per day it would 36 500 per year.
