Luther College “Islamophobia” Professor: Muslims “Aren’t Given Platform in the Media”

In the two days before this interview was published, the New York Times ran two pieces of Islamic apologetics by Muslims. The BBC also ran a piece defending Islam. No platform? That’s ridiculous beyond measure. Is he stupid beyond measure, or complicit?

Imagine wasting your life being an expert on “Islamophobia,” a propaganda term meant to intimidate people into thinking it wrong to oppose jihad terror. But Todd Green, a professor at Luther College in Iowa, does indeed actually bill himself with a straight face as “an internationally recognized expert in Islamophobia.”

In earlier ages, Todd Green would be penning tomes about how opposing the Nazis makes you a bigot who hates all Germans, or opposing the Salem witch trials meant you were soft on the threat of witchcraft. He and other “Islamophobia” “experts” make their living slandering and defaming those who oppose jihad terror, which will only have the effect of enabling more jihad terror. How they can live with themselves, as the body count steadily rises, is beyond me.

Brianna Snyder of the Milligan Stampede at Milligan College in Tennessee recently interviewed the illustrious Green, when he visited there to spread his propaganda about “Islamophobia” to Milligan’s hapless students. “I define Islamophobia,” Green pronounced grandly, “as fear, hostility and hatred of Muslims or Islam that is rooted in racism –”

What race are Muslims and Islam again? I keep forgetting.

“…and that manifests itself in discriminatory, exclusionary and violent practices targeting Muslims and those perceived as Muslims.”

By that definition, my colleagues and I are not “Islamophobes,” despite Green’s routinely libeling us with this label, as we do not support any violence against Muslims or those perceived as Muslims, and support no discriminatory or exclusionary measures against Muslims, but only reasonable measures to protect people against jihad terror and Sharia oppression.

What’s more, I have no fear, hostility, or hatred of Muslims or Islam. There are Islamic tenets that contradict the freedom of speech, the freedom of conscience, the equality of rights of women, the equality of rights of non-Muslims. There are Islamic tenets enjoining violence against non-Muslims. Doesn’t Todd Green oppose those? If so, is he himself an “Islamophobe”? Or does he support all this violence and oppression?

Snyder also asked Green: “Why should we not ask Muslims to condemn terrorism?”
