Sen. Durbin To Hold Hearings on American Muslim Civil Rights

Alternate headline: Grandstanding fool to roll out red carpet for group of non-stop whiners that face less discrimination and "hate crimes" than several other groups, according to FBI data, including Jews, gays, and (shock!) Caucasians. Maybe that's too long?

Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin (Ill.) announced Tuesday that he will hold Congress' first-ever hearing on the civil rights of American Muslims next week. The hearing comes a little more than two weeks after a Republican in Congress made headlines by holding a controversial hearing on the radicalization of Muslim Americans.

The release announcing the hearing said it is in response to the "pike [sic] in anti-Muslim bigotry in the last year including Quran burnings, restrictions on mosque construction, hate crimes, hate speech, and other forms of discrimination."

As has been noted repeatedly, though few Democrats dare to publicly acknowledge it, discrimination and hate crimes against Jews in the United States exceed same directed at Muslims by an order of magnitude. Sen. Durbin goes on in his statement to jaw about religious freedom and intolerance. If he had an ounce of integrity, he would recognize that "anti-Muslim bigotry" is a fraction of what Jews face. Muslims are just more vocal about it because they've got a friendly audience in Washington.

Democrats have made a fetish of holding the Muslim community's hand. Why such attention paid to Muslim sensibilities? Well, you don't see radical Jews blowing up buildings, shooting our troops, threatening beheadings, and funding terrorism abroad, do you?
