If you happen to be Muslim and might be planning a trip to the US, well, cancel that trip. It seems the US has become a beacon of hysterical Islamophobia and Muslim travelers are routinely harassed and restricted from coming to the Amerika for any reason. See the link coming up about right here –
There is also this –
The land of the free to discriminate has a long and storied history of dogging on minorities and people of color. We can start with the Native People that were genocided into compliance.
We shouldn’t forget Black folk that were invited to Amerika to be sold as slaves and roundly dehumanized because and after all, Africans were to be considered as a mere 3/5’s of a person.
Proud moments in the history of Ugly Amerika.
Amerika has dogged on Chinese back in the day, Mexicans, Japanese, Mexicans again, Jim Crow, interned Japanese, and now it’s a Muslim’s turn to feel the intolerant and ignorant wrath of Amerikan lunacy.
So my Dear and Respected Muslim Brothers and Sisters don’t bother. Coming to Amerika. Save your hard-earned money and go somewhere else. Anywhere else. I hear Argentina is nice this time of year. I hear that Cozumel is nice any time of year.
Muslims already trapped inside the Amerikan Gulag, well, we are in this together. I don’t share so much in your suffering but I empathise with your plight.
You see a way back in the dark days of Bushco I was branded as an “enemy of the State.” Oh that is true that is so very true. Our phone was tapped, our home was bugged, we had spooky boys crawling around our backyard, and we were routinely caught on camera going about the business of our daily lives. ‘Surveillance’ was the affectionate term used back then.
I didn’t care for any of it and routinely confronted the fuckers every time I caught them in the act of being nosy. All the silly freaks had to do was come to the front door and I would gladly answer any silly question they might care to pose. Ahhh, the good olde glory days…
Anyway, not again. Not today, not tomorrow, not the day after tomorrow. The “suspicion” is outrageous and bullshit. I wonder why it is no one ‘suspects’ the government’s bombing of Muslims and sure as hell never questions what the idiots are doing. The Obomber idiots. Why haven’t the Bushco war criminals been held to account for their illegal wars of naked aggression, their torture of innocents, their God-accursed genocides, and their patent if not blatant treason to Amerika?
Oh crappies I digress. Sorry about that. Amerika’s current climate of hysterical and racist discrimination pisses me off. Possibly it’s simply a period of chaos and ridiculous confusion that has gripped the Amerikan people and in time, they’ll get over it. Possibly. But until then –
Also my Muslim Brothers and Sisters, please to forgive my crude use of the holy term. I speak neither Arabic nor am I myself Muslim.
with all respect,
