The Dar Al-Farooq Islamic Center in suburban Minneapolis, like other U.S. mosques, occasionally receives threatening calls and emails. Its leaders say they’re more frightened now after an explosive shattered windows and damaged a room as worshippers prepared for morning prayers.
It has been a while since this has happened and Mr. Trump or any member of the Republican regime has commented on it. Folks, this is very telling as to what the Republican regime is thinking. Additionally, the fact that the authoritarian right has not denounced it is just as telling.
The authoritarian right wants us to believe that they are the one being victimized by the authoritarian left. They will talk about how the anti-fa groups are assaulting them when they try to express their first amendment rights (ignoring how they are really just doing it to provoke confrontations). Yet, when it comes to threats and acts of terrorism by members of their side, they are silent.
The truth is that the authoritarian right does not care about rights unless it is their rights being affected. They would prefer for those who do not think like them to leave the country or shut up and let them rule.
