UK Labour top dogs slam Trump as “Islamophobic” for criticizing Sadiq Khan

UK Labour top dogs slam Trump as “Islamophobic” for criticizing Sadiq Khan, by Robert Spencer.

The chattering-class concern with Islamophobia is not about protecting Muslims from genuine discrimination or violence (both of these things are already illegal), but rather is about ringfencing Islam and all Muslims from criticism, surrounding this one religion with a blasphemy-deflecting forcefield. So any commentary on Islam or even on influential Muslims can be casually batted aside as ‘phobic’.
