Gay black Muslim argues for taxpayer-funded Muslim-only safe spaces, identifies as black before American

On Friday, Fox News’ Tucker Carlson interviewed Blair Imani, executive director of “Equality for HER,” a group she founded in 2014 while attending college, about the idea of taxpayer-funded Muslim-only safe spaces similar to those sought by Muslims in Australia.

According to Fox News Insider:

An Australian Islamic group has proposed the creation of taxpayer-funded “safe spaces” for young Muslims.

The Islamic Council of Victoria (ICV), which says it represents 200,000 Muslims, claims the community is suffering mental health issues and other problems because of the widespread suspicion it faces over fears of radical Islamic terror.

The ICV said such forums would enable young people to safely express “inflammatory views that would cause trouble if voiced publicly.”

On “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” American Muslim Blair Imani, executive director of Equality for HER, explained why she thinks such safe spaces are a good idea.

“I’m talking about safe spaces being somewhere where you can be who you are without fear of being surveilled, having violence committed against you or being harassed,” Imani said. “And I think it’s a good idea to have everywhere.”

Carlson expertly pressed her on the need for counterterrorism efforts and why she thinks law enforcement agencies would put Muslims under surveillance.  Imani admitted the surveillance was a necessary part of counter-terrorism, but essentially sounded like a brainwashed social justice warrior completely ignorant of modern events — like 9/11, or the spate of terror attacks in Europe.

“There are acts of terror committed in the name of Allah,” she said, while claiming that Muslims are nevertheless targeted because of their religion.

Fox Insider added:

Tucker argued that other religious groups like the Amish and Hasidic Jews aren’t the targets of counterterrorism efforts because, by and large, they don’t commit terror attacks.

He said it’s a fact that many human beings have been killed recently in the name of Islam, even if many Muslims say radical Islam is a perversion of their religion.

At the end of the interview, Imani said she identifies as black before American.

“I’m black first,” she told Carlson, prompting him to respond, “end of conversation.”

Here’s video of the encounter:

Incredible.  This is the result of politically-correct indoctrination.

Exit question: Wouldn’t a mosque constitute a safe space for Muslims the same way that churches are generally safe spaces for Christians?
