Why did Ridge rallyers condemn America and not radical Islam?

By now even quarks in black holes know Islamo-bedlam is the biggest threat to our civilization, but apologists in Bay Ridge sullied Martin Luther King Day with a neighborhood march against a perceived equal menace — Islamophobia.

Around 200 grassroots gladiators rallied against the atrocities allegedly being heaped on long-suffering American Muslims, although the latest FBI hate crime figures show that Muslims were targeted just 154 times in 2014 while Jews topped the list — as usual — with 609 incidents of anti-Semitism. But history’s chronic scapegoats aren’t sweating the small stuff.

Rallyers flipped their hijabs because a Muslim woman was allegedly kicked and spat on while waiting for a bus at 86th Street and Fort Hamilton Parkway, Republican presidential candidates are pushing purported anti-Muslim agendas, and seven Muslim females were supposedly harassed after Islamo-extremists killed 14 and wounded 22 in the Dec. 2 terrorist attack in California. The cockeyed grievances are peanuts compared to the global cataclysm of Islamo-hate and violence that should rile civil rights warriors more than trumped-up charges of Islamophobia in a nation obsessed with the happiness of combustive communities.

Ridge crusaders should blow as much of a gasket about the Islamo-brutes responsible for the 153 attacks and 39 suicide blasts in 27 countries in the past month alone that killed 1,931 people and injured 1,714 more — reported by religionofpeace.cominstead of ignoring the enormity of their barbarity:

• Let them growl at radical Islam for being an execrable blot on humanity.

• Let them yell at the Muslim world for promoting anti-Semitism and Christian genocide in the Middle East.

• Let them snarl at Islamo-scums for destroying heritage sites considered heretical.

• Let them roar at Islamo-pervs for sexually assaulting more than 520 women in Germany on New Year’s Eve — and dress-down the imam who damned the victims.

Martin Luther King said, “In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.” To honor his memory the Ridge sob mob should have addressed the Islamo-facts instead of sounding off on the Islamo-fiction.
