OF COURSE: New York City Mayor Launches Campaign to Silence Negative Rhetoric About Islam


New York City was the location of a terror bombing in Chelsea not even two weeks ago, but the city’s mayor Bill de Blasio is concerned about people saying mean things about Islam.

Have you noticed that leftists who bend over backwards to accommodate Muslims never extend the same courtesy to Christians or Jews?

After Chelsea Bombing, NYC Launches Efforts To Silence ‘Negative Rhetoric’ About Islam

Less than two weeks after the terrorist bombings in New Jersey and New York City’s Chelsea neighborhood, NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio’s administration is launching a new campaign against the “negative rhetoric targeting Muslim communities” that the city says gets worse after “terrorist incidents.”

A press release from the city on Monday explained the reasoning for the new anti-anti-Islam efforts: “Across the country, hateful speech has made Muslim residents the target of misguided attacks and threats, especially in the aftermath of terrorist incidents,” states a press release from the city.

The city is targeting Muslims for community outreach efforts, “including issuing a new multilingual fact sheet explaining protections against religious discrimination with a focus on Muslim communities and a new multilingual brochure on religious protections under NYC Human Rights Law with practical examples to identify discrimination in the workplace, housing, and public accommodations.”

That whole free speech thing was nice while we had it, wasn’t it?

What’s next, safe spaces and laws against microaggressions?
