As the jihad against America escalates, Democrat politicians don’t leave anyone guessing as to whose side they are on:
In the aftermath of last month’s Paris attacks, New York City officials have bolstered security and quietly stepped up outreach to Muslim residents, trying to calm fears of hate-filled retaliation and mend a relationship that has been fraught with mutual suspicion.
This was even more directly in the aftermath of the December 2 Muslim bloodshed in San Bernardino, but liberals have been slow to acknowledge that had anything to do with Islam.
The city has increased its presence in Muslim neighborhoods, sending staffers to visit mosques and meet with imams and worshippers. Police officials have briefed community leaders on new counterterrorism procedures. Other city officials have urged Muslims to report any hate crimes, the number of which is sharply lower in New York in 2015 than at this time a year ago.
In a speech Friday evening at an Islamic community center, Mayor Bill de Blasio said the city would deepen its relationship with the 800,000 Muslim New Yorkers and vowed dogged investigations into any hate crimes.
According to liberal dogma, whenever Muslims kill, it is Muslims who are the victims. Even after 9/11, moonbats bleated sanctimoniously about imaginary backlash.
De Blasio’s NYPD admits that “there has not been an uptick in bias crimes against Muslims since the Paris attacks,” but reminds us that some hate crimes go unreported — although probably not as many as are reported despite never having happened.
This conspicuous not to say theatrical siding with Muslims in the aftermath of particularly bloody Muslim terror attacks is not unique to the hard left Islamophile kooks running New York City. In today’s Democrat Party, they are all hard left Islamophile kooks:
Democratic lawmakers visited a mosque on Friday to show solidarity with Muslims in the wake of rising anti-Islamic rhetoric. They also showed resistance to any attempts by Republicans to restrict Syrian refugees from entering the country.
Rep. Don Beyer, D-Va., and Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton, D-D.C., attended prayer service at a Northern Virginia mosque on Friday. …
The mosque has controversial ties to terrorists, as Fort Hood shooter Nidal Hasan was reportedly worshiping there. The mosque also previously had an imam, typically known as a prayer leader, named Anwar al-Awlaki that the government believes was a recruiter for terrorists.
It has reached the point where voting for Democrats is an act of treason.
