There is no such thing as "Islamophobia".  A phobia is an irrational or unjustified fear.  Anybody who isn't afraid of Islam is oblivious to reality.

I first visited the USA in 1996. My first port of call was Atlanta, GA. Like all large-ish US cities it's a mixed bag of assorted fruits. I stayed at my then GFs Dad's house. It was a slightly creepy antebellum style place in the posh end of North Atlanta. The houses around were similar. Many of them flew the Stars and Stripes and the Confederate Battle Banner (it is not the Cionfederate flag) alongside each other. I suffered secondary cognitive dissonance.

My GF just assured me this was normal for Georgia, wait 'till you see the boonies...

Which I did. I can attest to the truth that Atlanta is a "Northern City" that happens to be in the South.

The Florida pan-handle is also not for the faint of heart. It was assumed (more than once) I was homosexual but that was OK because I was English and everything they knew about England came from Hugh Grant movies. You, know, like the romantic comedies where he isn't gay. But facts don't matter when your meta-story works better. OK, I did have floppy hair an English accent and wore a velvet jacket. But I was with a woman. And we had a .38 in the glove box of the Honda.

NickM: I know it's technically the "battle flag", but everybody calls it the Confederate flag now.

Flying the Confederate flag and the US flag together is indeed bizarre, but you have to remember that these people are (a) idiots and (b) grossly ignorant of history beyond a superficial and error-riddled caricature. They really don't see any contradiction in calling themselves patriots while waving the flag of traitors who tried to break up the country.

Ricko: Please steal away.....
