Activists March Against Islamophobia In South Minneapolis

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – People gathered in Minneapolis Saturday to show support for Muslims in Minnesota and across the country.

The “Stand Up Against Islamophobia March” started around 1 p.m. People met at Mayday Books on Cedar Avenue South and marched to the Minnesota Republican Party Headquarters on East Franklin Avenue.

Organizers say the march is meant to show their opposition to hate speech and crimes against Muslims. They say they are responding to comments made by Donald Trump, in particular, over the course of his campaign.

    It’s okay to march, just avoid the mall where the jihadi is stabbing people.

    I wish there was a requirement for truth in reporting. The media should give an estimate of participants, say, in this case 100 or so folks, then be forced to also give an estimate of folks in that population center who chose NOT to participate…..say 2.5 million. A little truth in reporting should be a requirement, not an option.

        You can return to your third world cesspool and Karma each other up the kazoo. You know little else, but blame us for your inferiority. I’m saddened for you, that your brain can function only in a small realm, but please go away back, to where you cometh, from.

    ISLAM == TERROR It is the GREATEST PROBLEM humans have ever faced.

    The liberals method for reducing Islamic terrorism in the US. The more Muslims we have in the US, the lower percentile that will be involved in terrorist events. So, if you have 100,000 Muslims and 100 terrorist events, you have 1/10 of 1 percent involved in terror. If you can increase the number of Muslims by 10 and your terrorist incidents only go up by 50 percent, you have achieved your goal of reducing the per Muslim incidence of terrorism! More Muslims, less terrorism.
