do you think the resentment of Muslims would get to a point to that of the red scare? watch

    • Thread Starter

    basically the red scare was the fear of spread of communism in the capitalist countries especially in USA but also in the Uk especially after WW1. this with the fact that many immigrants came from eastern Europe at the time many feared that communism would spread. however many immigrants actually left their countries to practice their beliefs freely without oppressive groups or regimes harassing them similar to situation with many Muslim immigrants now.

    another similarity is that terrorist attacks were also carried out by anarchist/communist groups such as the wall street bombing similar to some of the attacks we see now which added fuel to the fire. keeping in mind that due to these attacks many innocents were arrested in the palmer raids etc. do you think the resentment of muslims would ever reach that level?

    Why am I always being victimised

    Honestly I wouldnt be surprised. But to that extent? Who knows...
    In each time period there's been a group of people that have been victimised and blamed for the problems in society. It was the jews in europe, black people in the US, the irish in england.
    Now its mexicans in the US, and in the UK its the immigrants in general and most of all, muslims.
    Yay for us

    No. Firstly only the non to bright in society actually see all Muslims as a threat.

    Secondly, unlike the red scare you can normally physically see who the (potential) enemy are in most cases.

    The red scare wasn't a scare, it was real. The islamic threat isn't a scare either.

    The ideology of Islam is no different than if the nazis made Hitler a god.
Have you ever experienced racism/sexism at uni?
