Ugh, Come on, America!

September 11, 2010 events at ground zero and the City Hall

Sorry, but a fresh report [1] co-sponsored by UC Berkeley regarding American attitudes towards Islam is totally bumming us out at the moment. According to the report, Americans are stubbornly continuing the not-so-proud tradition of minority hatin’. Just ask African Americans or our indigenous peoples, we kinda suck sometimes.

We here at the Clog are less than thrilled with the 30 percent favorable rating of Islam in our homeland. Not to mention the disturbing Islamophobic rhetoric featured during a GOP presidential debate [2].

However, there is some good news. Koran-burning pastor Terry Jones [3] was recently attacked while on his way to presumably troll a Muslim festival. Sorry, but that jerk had it coming. Burning the Koran isn’t very chill, bro.
