    Good heavens, the largest muslim nation in the world is our next door neighbour. And the largest muslim nation in the world is Indonesia.

    Indonesia is not in the Middle East. So no one caricatures Indonesian muslims as middle-easterners.

    But the Left have made an historic alliance with Islam.

    And to help Islam the Left call any criticism of Islam, racist.

    This is plainly special pleading.

    This should come as no surprise as so many believe the false 19th century theology of Creationism. And we are surrounded by those who believe mbti is part of psychometrics.
    And? If people choose to be racist, it's their full prerogative.

    Doesn't matter, no one associates south-east asians with Islam. Perhaps in Australia, but in the rest of the world, the media and folk associations with islam has to do with middle-east. Ask the average person what they imagine a muslim to look like, and you'll get the idea.

    Lol, and what evidence do you have to substantiate this? So hatred of "muslims" and "Otherizing" muslims is a conspiracy by the western left? Even when there are prominent movements like the "Anti-jihad" movement and "Defense leagues". There are plenty of examples. It's not a leftist conspiracy. The new far right is a prominently in-line with the "anti-jihad" movement.

    Also there is a big difference between theological constructive criticism of islam and muslim socities and the hysterical views of "muslims are violent barbarians expansive out to get the west and they all hate non-musims" pervasive in the west today. If you use the same statement against another historically vilified group like jews f.ex and said "Jews are all lecherous and evil and greedy, and are plotting the downfall of western countries" it would hardly be seen as "criticism" of judaism. It would be seen as down-right anti-semitic. Because racializing jews and anti-semitic sentiment is not considered acceptable.

    Like I said, racialization of muslims is pretty accepted in the west. But not of F.ex jews or christians, which are seen as religions, rather than monolithic groups by the western public.

    You don't understand social dynamics then if you think it's a simple ploy to give muslims immunity. Racism doesn't have to be based on biology, it can be based on belief-system/culture or anything else. It is the process of "Otherizing" people and identifying them as monolithic group of, non-individuals with deterministic traits. Is anti-semitism a form of racism f.ex? If that is the case, what makes muslims different? It's not an invention of the left. It's a social process that forms from social relationships. You can read academic texts that describe this process occuring, long before the modern western "left" ever came into being.

    I'm not even a leftist by western criteria in any stretch, quite the contrary, I believe that peaceful, non-oppresive segregation is a naturally occuring thing and positive between groups. But I'm not going to pretend there aren't social dynamics behind it all, and I'm not going to use euphemism for the samething.

    Hating (or even disliking) Rap music is racist.

    Adding context where there is none.

    What bullshit.

    Oops. At least halfway redacted, because the headline itself is very much exaggerated. As headlines are wont to be.
