The Islamophobia Industry Killed Justine Damond
Islamophobia kills. We just saw this again in Minneapolis, when a 40-year-old Australian woman, Justine Ruszczyk Damond, was killed by a rogue cop.
It is a cherished fiction on the Left that there exists an “Islamophobia Industry,” a well-funded group of propagandists who spread hatred of Muslims solely to line their pockets. This is as ridiculous as it is libelous, but there really is an Islamophobia Industry, and it is a group of well-funded propagandists. In reality, however, it is not in the business of spreading “anti-Muslim bigotry.” Instead, it propagates the idea that Muslims in the U.S. are the recipients of widespread discrimination and harassment, and so must be accorded special accommodation and consideration. That idea has just taken the life of Justine Ruszczyk Damond.
Damond called 911 in Minneapolis Saturday night to report what she thought might be a rape. When police arrived, she approached the police car, and a Minneapolis police officer named Mohamed Noor shot her dead.
Mohamed Noor is a Somali Muslim. Last year, Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges expressed her excitement about his joining the police force:
I want to take a moment to recognize Officer Mohamed Noor, the newest Somali officer in the Minneapolis Police Department. Officer Noor has been assigned to the 5th Precinct, where his arrival has been highly celebrated, particularly by the Somali community in and around Karmel Mall.
