When Will the Media Admit Their "Islamophobia?"

Whenever some left-wing media outlet pulls a cartoon or any sort of likeness from their syndicated comic strips or when any mention of the "Prophet of Islam" is mentioned on television, there is always the defense of "religious tolerance" or "understanding." Nevermind that these same outlets have absolutely no problem on symbolically defecating on Christian values and symbols, and then to have an iron-clad excuse as to why, but to then use the cover of "tolerance" to hide their own fears of Muslim retribution is simply hypocritical at best and cowardly at worst.

To that point, here is a "Hell, Yeah!" to FOX's Greg Gutfield for calling the lefty media on it. Of course, he works for FOX, so he's clearly a racist, bigoted, Islamophobic white supremacist.

"...why is it that the media keeps reminding us that we shouldn’t exaggerate the threat of a small group of radicals, but then completely changes tact when it comes to their own personal safety?
Think about it: if the average Joe expresses anxiety over Islamic fundamentalism, they’re called Islamophobes. But if an editor removes a comic in which Mohammed isn’t even present, that’s not honest to Allah Islamophobia?
Look, the media can’t have it both ways. They cannot criticize the public for concerns over Islam and then pull this stunt over a fear they may get stabbed in front of a Starbucks. If their governing principle in the newsroom is fear, then they should admit it and get the hell off our backs for feeling pretty much the same way."

Score one for Gutfield.
