After the Islamic terrorist attacks of September 11, Americans became fearful of Islamic terrorists. And terrorists and their supporters became fearful of Americans.
The media insists that we empathize, not with the fears of the former, but of the latter.
Americans may be killed by the thousands, but we are never allowed to be victims. Much like the Christians of Sri Lanka, a day will pass and the media will switch its attention to the “backlash fear” group.
Here’s Rep. Tlaib’s “backlash fear” story.
“I was probably my second year in law school when 9/11 happened. And I was — I was really terrified of what was going to happen to my husband, who’s only a green card holder at the time,” she said.
“I immediately called my brothers and told them to be very careful who you hang out with, telling my sisters, you know, just be real careful out there, and being really afraid of my fellow Americans.”
She added that the attack and the fear pushed her toward public service and becoming more involved in her community.
“It really pushed me to be more involved, and I got really curious and really angry. And I think that combination got me, you know, in front of a number of issues in the city of Detroit,” she said.
After 9/11, some Americans rushed into the buildings and into the military to serve their fellow Americans.
And some people with American papers rushed to fight Americans, on foreign battlefields or in the war at home.
If only the media had as much sympathy for Americans as it does for their enemies.
