I didn't realize it had that advantage connected to it--I'll make a point from now on to be sure I say "God bless you" when someone sneezes and feel even better about it. If they don't like it, they can always leave. Like the song says: "Don't be like the cur in the story, Don't Bite the Hand That's Feeding You". And what else may I ask would you expect "college librarians" of today to think?

Those who say "Allah Ho Akbar" are the ones who bother me.

Direct from the college website: Islamomisia (also called Islamophobia) is prejudice plus power; anyone with any religious beliefs can have/exhibit religion-based prejudice, but in North America (and throughout much of the western world), people who follow Christianity have the institutional power, therefore Islamomisia is a systematized discrimination or antagonism directed against Muslim people due to their religion, or perceived religious, national, or ethnic identity associated with Islam.
Islamomisic Microaggressions are commonplace verbal or behavioral indignities, whether intentional or unintentional, which communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative slights and insults in relation to the beliefs and religious practices of Muslims.
Note: The prefix "micro" is used because these are invocation of religious hierarchy at the individual level (person to person), whereas the "macro" level refers to aggression committed by structures as a whole (e.g. an organizational policy). "Micro" in no way minimalizes or otherwise evaluates the impact or seriousness of the aggressions.

Six Categories of Common Islamomisic Microaggressions (from Subtle and Overt Forms of Islamophobia: Microaggressions toward Muslim Americans)
Assumption of One's Own Religious Identity as the Norm: Comments or behaviors that convey people’s presumption that their religion is the standard and behaves accordingly (e.g., greeting someone “Merry Christmas” or saying “God bless you” after someone sneezes conveys one’s perception that everyone is Christian or believes in God).

The Cultural Marxist offshoot of Post Modernism (or whatever you want to call it) is now the official dogma of our Universities, many Government Agencies, most NGOs, and not a few Corporations.

There are no objective values, no objective facts, all that's left is identity and sorting out the oppressed from oppressor, and being sure the oppressed aren't "microaggressed" upon.

In contrast, the Fascists control nothing, except maybe one or two cell blocks in a few prisons.
