A New Cultural Fad Unmasked

This article exposes the false myth of Islamophobia at this link. The charge of  "Islamophobia"  is the latest in the constant liberal search for trendy, derogatory labels to impose on those who do not fit their favored cosmopolitan, cultural, and social profile. It is another hammer with which to try to falsely mock those who do not share the liberal social agenda as somehow, by necessity, being benighted "hicks" clinging to God, guns, and Confederate flags in fly-over country. The problem is that this fad, like many of the other liberal fads that we have seen over the last 40 years (including fads such as the early eighties fad of "Reagan the war-monger" putting nuclear missiles in Europe or the still powerful and ongoing "Bush the dunce" fad or the never-to-be-abandoned "joy of sexual liberation" fad), is not based on facts, as the article shows.
