What Anti-Muslim Backlash?

by Mona Charen

The Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights, Thomas Perez, recently offered that Muslims in America face “a real headwind of intolerance.” Liberals always see every issue through the prism of discrimination. It’s often the only way they understand the world. The Justice Department hasn’t documented this prejudice — probably because they cannot.

The Center for Security Policy has a new report out debunking this notion. This is from the press release:

In fact, the study shows that religious bias crimes – also known as hate crimes – against Muslim Americans, measured by the categories of incidents, offenses or victims, have remained relatively low with a downward trend since 2001, and are significantly less than the numbers of bias crimes against Jewish victims.
