The twisted and delusional world of millions of American leftist voters.

A February Rasmussen report sheds light on just how divorced from reality millions of American liberal voters are. After pointing out that Democrats are more likely to think Muslims are mistreated in America than to think Christians are persecuted in the Islamic world, the report elaborates:
Fifty-six percent (56%) of Democrats, however, believe most Muslims in this country [America] are mistreated, a view shared by only 22% of Republicans and 39% of voters not affiliated with either major party. Fewer Democrats (47%) think most Christians are mistreated in the Islamic world, compared to 76% of GOP voters and 64% of unaffiliateds. Women are more likely than men to think most American Muslims are mistreated here but less likely to believe Christians are mistreated in the Islamic world. Nearly as many voters under 40 think most Muslims are mistreated in America (51%) as think most Christians are mistreated in the Muslim world (57%).
To put these dismal statistics in perspective, consider some facts. Open Doors, an international human rights organization that publishes annual reports concerning the global persecution of Christians, noted in its most recent report: 215 million Christians experience high levels of persecution. During 2017, a reported 3,066 Christians were killed, 1,252 abducted, and 1,020 raped or sexually harassed on account of their faith. And 793 churches were attacked or destroyed.
The overwhelming majority of this slaughter and destruction occurred in 50 nations 38 of which are Muslim-majority. Islamic oppression is further responsible for the extreme persecution of Christians meaning the abuse, rape, imprisonment, or slaughter of Christians on sight in eight of the worst ten nations. Every day, the organization adds, six women are raped, sexually harassed or are forced into marriage to a Muslim under threat of death due to their Christian faith.
The above statistics are actually conservative. Based on the findings of the Italian-based Center for Studies on New Religions, 90,000 Christians died for their faith in 2016 alone, a great many under Islam.
Its worth noting that the overwhelming majority of Muslims persecuting Christians are not terrorists (at least not formally), but rather come from all rungs of Muslim society.
Take Egypt, for example (the 17th worst nation where Christians experience very high persecution). According to the report, along with violent religious groups, two other segments of society are Very Strong[ly] responsible for the persecution: (1) Non-Christian religious leaders meaning Muslim clerics, sheikhs, imams, and the rest at any level from local to national; and (2) Normal citizens (people from the general public), including mobs.
Similarly, officials at any level from local to national are strongly responsible for the oppression of Egypts Christians, particularly through their failure to vindicate the rights of Christians and also through their discriminatory acts which violate the fundamental rights of Christians.
That the same segments of Muslim society are involved in the same patterns of persecution of Christians throughout the Islamic world despite the racial, linguistic, cultural, and economic-political differences of all these African, Asian, Arab, and Caucasian nations further underscores the only commonality, or true source of the persecution: Islam.
Now, compare all this to the supposedly worse in liberal minds mistreatment Muslims suffer in America.
According to a November 2017 Pew report: In 2016, there were 127 reported [Muslim] victims of aggravated or simple assault. In the preceding decades, assaults on Muslims averaged around 50 a year.
Even if this number were accurate, it pales in comparison to what millions of Christians not 127 are experiencing under Islam. But the fact is many of these anti-Muslim hate crimes are later found to have been fabricated or grossly exaggerated. Note, for instance, how the Pew report conflates assaults with simple assaults even though the latter does not involve physical contact with the victim.
Moreover, Muslims in America do not experience institutionalized persecution that is, persecution at the hands of governments, authorities, and police as Christians under Islam do.
And there is a final ironic difference: Muslim persecution of Christians is religiously motivated and built on Islamic doctrines that portray non-Muslims as subhuman chattel. And thats what the assaults and simple assaults on Muslims are generally motivated by, or rather in response to: Americans knowing and disliking what Muslims are about. That such assaults are so exceptionally rare proves that Americans understand what makes such values incompatible with our laws.
Nonetheless, and as usual, all these actual facts have little to do with what a significantly large segment of the American voting population mostly liberals/Democrats, a majority under 40 and female believe.
Why they are so misinformed becomes apparent when one understands that liberal media is dedicated to maintaining liberal narratives at all costs: in this case, that Christians are always the aggressors, Muslims always the misunderstood victims.
Thus, when journalist Shannon Bream recently announced a forthcoming segment on the growth of Christian persecution around the world, ABCs Matthew Dowd tweeted: Maybe you can talk about the bigger problem which is persecution of Muslims in America and around the globe. Bigger issue.
The truly bigger issue is that tens of millions of Americans are so deluded as to believe and inevitably base their votes on the inverse of reality.
“...the bigger problem which is persecution of Muslims in America and around the globe. Bigger issue.
The stupid is strong with this one.
Or is it the Left protecting their most dangerous ally?
Darn straight! The idealogy of Islam is not compatible with the US Constitution and Western Civilizations values. US practitioners of Islam will need to come to grips with the evil idealogy that they have faith in, and choose.
Some cultures are better than others.
“The average democrat is just plain stupid. They’re easy to manipulate. That’s the easy part.” Hillary 2005. Democrats see and believe what they’re told.
The next thing on the deep state agenda is false flag operations on Muslims. They get a twofer: more gun control and more political power for the ROP.
Well they are, it’s much worse to be in the same room when someone says “God bless you” then having one’s head chopped off.
It’s Doublethink. A “microaggression’ against a Muslim is more reprehensible than rape and beheadings committed by a Muslim. Lefties are okay with that perspective.
There are still Muslims here, so we need to up our game. They are not welcome, and need to be shown the door. Barack Obama can be first, followed by the ass-hat that spoke at the Democrat convention, and clock boy. They all have to go back.
Islam is not a ‘Clash of Civilizations’, it is a ‘Clash WITH Civilization’......................

It looks like the title is right. We are at fault.
Face it Democrats will say or do anything to destroy America. Their favorite tactics to divide and enrageolposite views, then cut of communication resulting in conflict.
I stand corrected.
The bottom line of all the world’s great religions is:
Leave other people alone.
Then there’s Islam........................
I’m fed up with our beheadings and other forms of slaughtering Muslims.
Im going to go out on a limb and guess dummy Dowd is speaking of the typical muzzie on muzzie issue. Akin to our betters suggesting that blacks are under attack more than whites yet fail to address the black on black criminal numbers. Sheesh our media is sickening.
Where are the charred bodies?
