President Obama on Thursday bemoaned discrimination faced by Muslim Americans, calling on people in the U.S. to practice tolerance toward their fellow citizens. “Let’s be clear: Muslim Americans are as patriotic, as integrated, as American as any other member of the American family,” Obama said during a White House reception celebrating Eid al-Fitr, the Islamic holiday that marks the end of Ramadan. Obama urged people around the country to ensure that Muslim Americans do not feel as if they’re “second-class citizens.” “We see you, we believe in you," the president said, addressing young Muslims in the room. "And despite what you may sometimes hear, you’ve got to know you’re a valued part of the American family and there is nothing you cannot do." Obama made the comments hours before Donald Trump was set to accept the Republican Party's nomination for president in Cleveland. Trump’s call for a temporary ban on Muslim immigration in the wake of last year’s terror attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, Calif., has been a rallying cry for his campaign. "Discriminating against Muslim Americans is also an affront to the very values that already make our nation great," Obama said. Mr. President Islamophobia is perfectly fine, because Islamophobia is based on facts. Calling them car bombers goat lovers is perfectly fine because it is based on facts. When they continually kill innocent people in the western world and even in nations like Syria and Iraq, there is nothing wrong with Islamophobia because this speech is based on facts. Of course people are going to discriminate Muslims in America, when their Sharia law is trying to be practiced on American streets when that foreign religious based law is unlawful in the United States. How about telling Muslims to quit killing thousands of innocents around the world, and trying to change western laws and values. Until that happens Islamophobia will continue. Discrimination of Muslims is a life saving skill because what they have done in the Western world over your whole time in power. So Obama this discrimination is based on facts shut the hell up.
