They described their demonstration as a hate-free zone, but told me and the other Sun News team to “f— off” as soon as we arrived.

Have you noticed that the same people who insist defensively that “not all Muslims do XYZ bad thing” are the same people who turn on a dime and make excuses (and therefore, implicitly approve) when Muslims DO “do XYZ bad thing.” (“Well, America asked for it…” “Well, that’s their culture…”)

Is “XYZ bad thing” universally morally wrong — or do you merely object to the rest of us noticing when Muslims do it?
If it’s “there culture,” then… “their culture” must be evil, no?
If “America asked for it,” then whatever America did must be bad, right? So when Muslims do the same thing America supposedly did, that’s “bad” too though, right?
