This is very bad news for the president. In response, the Biden administration on Wednesday announced a “National Strategy to Counter Islamophobia.”

Vice President Kamala Harris said the strategy will be a “comprehensive and detailed plan to protect Muslims and those perceived to be Muslim from hate, bigotry and violence.” In addition, she said, it will “address the concern that some government policies may discriminate against Muslims.” The announcement came as Jewish Americans were being targeted on college campuses and elsewhere amid anti-Israel protests — a fact noted by many on social media. [firefly_poll] “Amid an unprecedented wave of anti-Semitism all over America, the Biden White House decided that now was the time to announce the ‘first ever national strategy to counter Islamophobia.’ 60% of hate crimes last year targeted Jews. Just 9% targeted Muslims,” Greg Price wrote on X.

But it’s not the percentage of hate crimes that drove this sudden need to call out “Islamophobia” in the nation. It’s the percentage of people supporting Biden. The Biden administration may call it “a national priority,” but to the rest of America, it just looks like desperate pandering.
