Islamophobia is a myth generated by some Muslims who prefer to be totally xenophobic and have no idea how to escape the strictures of their religion imposed by their parents and their culture, and by some adherents to the idea that somehow, in order to create an 'equal' society, there is some 'need' to ferret out anyone who happens to disagree with some tenet of a specified 'issue' for this nation at this time, by adhering to any such 'dissident' some label of hostility, hatred, and narrow-mindedness.

We've seen that nonsense with 'feminism' and 'gayism' for forty years now ....  anyone who has a different view - no matter how well based - is automatically labeled as some kind of bigot who thus has no right to speak, and who WILL be subject to sanctions. *

EVERY adherent to the myth that ordinary Australians (like me and many others) somehow have a 'hatred' for Muslims (and any other group claiming Accredited Victim Status) who we've never met and who this nation and us have accepted with open arms as genuine people in need of succour because of their OWN nation and culture, and that somehow there is some amazing culture of keeping 'Muslims' (and the rest) down by refusing them rights and opportunities, does so for personal (ego) advantage or for political advantage.

The entire 'issues' of 'Islamophobia', 'Homophobia', 'Feminophobia' and so forth are specifically designed to gain advantage for Islam, Homos, Feminos, and any other group that chooses to play that card and game.

Meanwhile the rest of us are, rather bemusedly, waiting our opportunity to actually meet and deal with these people who feel sooooooo oppressed in this nation that they need special treatment.... which the rest of us never got for one second!

I ask again - where are these groups of Australians going around attacking Muslims?  Where are Muslims refused opportunity for education, job opportunity, freedom of movement and freedom of association and so on?  Where are they excluded from the professions such as law and medicine?  Where are they forced to live in ghettoes?  Where are they refused opportunity to exercise their religious beliefs?  Where are they refused opportunity to serve in the armed forces and police and so forth?  Where are they paid less than anyone else for the same job, if not by their own choice and adherence to their 'culture' in which 'the boss' offers and you accept or get nothing.... (starvation politics - coming to a nation near you!)....

Muslims, as a whole, have been handed GREATER opportunities in this nation than they could every envisage in their own country and culture.

This whole 'issue' of 'Islamophobia' is a LIE, pure and simple, and if there are problems...... perhaps Muslims (and the rest) need to look at themselves first.....


**try, as I did, to pose an opposite view or alternative approach to Affirmative Action in the Commonwealth Public Service, offering reasoned and substantiated alternatives - and see what you get.... object to ONE 'feminist' or 'gay' "right".. and see what you get.   On the street... no job... no promotion on merit ... no nothing but the economic gulag..... unless you can do better for yourself without that utter garbage....

At shopping centres?

"The findings were borne out by the experience of Sydney mother-of-two Gada Omar, who was verbally threatened by a group of men while sitting with two friends in a shopping centre in the Sydney suburb of Rouse Hill.

"There were lots of people around," she said.

"We looked up and there were five guys standing over us, they were probably in their early 20s. They said to us, 'Do you know what a crow bar looks like?'"


Islamophobia: Women wearing head coverings most at risk of attacks, study finds

"A Perth man who attacked a Muslim mother outside a shopping centre after she replied "happy holidays" to his "Merry Christmas" has been fined $2400."

Wonder if there's ever been a study on all the attacks by Muslims on non Muslims?

Quite possible.

There are lots of studies out there, Homo.

For example, a study carried out by the University of North Carolina showed that less than 0.0002% of Americans killed since 9/11 were killed by Muslims.

How many as a percentage during terrorist attacks in the last 20 years in the states?

Not sure about their religion, Homo.

However, the chance of an American dying in a terrorist attack on U.S. soil, that was committed by a foreigner over the last 40 years, is 1 in 3.6 million per year.

And, the chance of an American being killed in a terrorist attack caused by a refugee is 1 in 3.64 billion per year while the chance of being killed in an attack committed by an illegal immigrant is 1 in 10.9 billion per year.

So many studies.

Homo is his name, dear.

He operates a few socks, and one of them is 'Jocko Homo'.

We could call him 'Jocko', I suppose.

I think he prefers 'Homo', though.

The Homo in your sock's name - Jocko Homo - refers to homo sapiens.

From the book - Jocko-Homo Heavenbound - by B. H. Shadduck, where it is explained as meaning "ape-man"

Didn't you know that when you created the sock?
