Muslim Women Attacked in Tampa, Florida

Local CBS affiliate WTSP in Tampa, Florida reports that two Muslim women were attacked in two separate incidents over the past week.

Both women were attacked outside their mosques.

Thursday, a woman's car was shot at as she left a mosque in eastern Tampa, about a mile from the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, CAIR Florida director Hassan Shibly told me.

And over the weekend, a woman reported a man cutting her off and throwing stones and other things at her as she drove away from a mosque in New Tampa.

Ordinarily this would be the moment when someone on the right chimes in and says both women should have been armed, but if anyone says so in this case I'll eat my hat.

I can only imagine the reaction if Muslims decided to stand guard outside mosques with long guns draped over their shoulders just as so many white conservatives in this country do.

    Supposedly it is an old Chinese curse to wish for someone “may you live in interesting times.” I’m starting to wish we lived in less interesting times because this continues to get more and more frightening.

    With the entire Conservative Infotainment Complex having a noisy collective meltdown over Mooslims, things are going to get worse before they get better.

    Ash, Ash, Ash…When are you going to get it through your solid thick skull that the right to bear arms in America is ONLY applicable to white, God fearin’ Christian Republican voters in the God Blessed United States of America™?!! The very idea that some darky skinned low life, be they Terrist Mooslims or Rapist Mexicuns or Lazy Nigguhs, should have the right to enjoy Second Amendment privileges that only GFCRVsIA deserve to take for granted, makes the Baby Jesus™ barf streams all over its manger. Get a fucking clue whydontcha, boy! [/sarcasm]
