This will set up a conflict among the wingnut masses, since many Muslim immigrants are well educated and fairly wealthy. The business oriented wingnuts; investment hucksters, real estate boosters, and the many others who literally worship money; will want to give this element a pass. Ordinary semi-literate bigots will not. This will resolve itself in favor of the money grubbers, of course, and the burden of hate, discrimination, and the occasional RWNJ terrorist attack will fall on poor Muslims from such places as Somalia and Bangladesh.

re: #1 Shiplord Kirel

I’d agree with you, except for the fact that there are very few Muslims in the country to begin with.

religions.pewforum.org

They’re only about 0.6% the last time we checked

You’re welcome. Maybe I’m being a bit too literal, but I only see two pictures associated with the story over there.

No different from the assholes who sought to limit Catholic/Jewish and Asian immigration in the 19th and early 20th century. Fuckers. Honestly, if you are one who believes that Islam is a danger, you should be encouraging Muslims to immigrate. One great thing about our country is how quickly immigrants assimilate into our collective culture.

Oh, hell yes.

One thing I can say for the anti-immigration bigots, however; they’re into recycling. They’re running the exact same arguments without changing a single word they ran against the Irish, the German, the Filipino, the Japanese, the Chinese…..

Yep the attacks on religion, loyalty, culture, etc are all sad songs we’ve heard before.

re: #2 CriticalDragon1177

That seems a wee bit low. Something there is a bit off.

re: #8 The War TARDIS

Its from 2007, so the percentage of Muslims in our population might be somewhat higher now, however I doubt the difference will be that much. Its been only about seven years. I could try to find something more recent, but I’ve had some trouble doing so.

re: #9 CriticalDragon1177

That seems even low for then. That would mean that over a third of all Muslims in the United States live in the NYC metro. I think is at least 1% of the US is Muslim. And growing.

re: #10 The War TARDIS

Okay if that’s so, we should be able to find something from a more recent year that shows that to be the case. However keep in mind that the US population is huge, so there could still be a lot of Muslims in some areas even if over all they make up a very small percentage of the population.

re: #11 CriticalDragon1177

Even with that point, something doesn’t seem right with those numbers. Mostly, the idea that the population is so concentrated in one place.

There was a study done in the NYC Metro a few years back that found 800k Muslims in the NYC Metro.

According to those numbers from Pew, that means 30%+ are concentrated in one Spot.

When there are higher Muslim Concentrations in 2 other states. Illinois and Texas. Something here is wildly off.
