After every Muslim terrorist attack, the mainstream media’s first instinct is to talk about discrimination against Muslims, rather than keeping Americans safe.
MSNBC even brought on former Islamic extremist Mubin Shaikh to shame Americans don’t like Islam. He claimed these Americans are what are causing Muslims to join ISIS.
“Look, self-radicalization, I mean what we’re trying to say is that these are people who radicalize not in traditional groups like before. They go online, they get most of their ideology, but, this is something that they’ve already decided to engage in,” said Shaikh.
“A person doesn’t go online and read something and decide, ‘Oh, I‘m going to be–oh, I believe this. I‘m going to go and act on this.’ They already have this going on inside them before they turn to the internet or somebody like in a real human network,” he said.
“What we need to look into is why this person even feels they need to look that way. And one of the things is hatred–is hatred, and alienation, and marginalization. Think about it this way–when you tell a kid that he’s dumb, he’s stupid, he’s going to amount to nothing, what do you think is going to happen with that kid? He’s going to take that, internalize that, and externalize it by acting it out onto other people,” he said.
