Looks like fear is the main course being served in our country this week.
 
Political opportunists running for president have been cooking up a heaping platter of anti-Muslim sentiment since the Nov. 13 terrorist attacks on Paris. Theyt Christians.
 
If you don a little brick building that looks like a bank branch office and has been around for 27 years s expansion plans as a threat to the very fabric of America.
 
a man said in a video of the Tuesday meeting posted online by the Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star. t happen, because you are terrorists.t the only one spewing hatred.
 
A man wearing a sweatshirt emblazoned with a flying eagle with American flag wings and the words kept getting up and shouting down the engineers and their blueprints.
 
he boomed, as murmurs and some low cheers fluttered around him.
 
This was said in a public meeting. In front of a large group of Muslims who have lived, worked and worshiped in this community for years. About a center that has been sponsoring a food pantry, prayers and subversive events such as for nearly three decades.
 
The Islamic Center basically, the size of a DennyAmerica counts millions of Muslims amongst our citizens, and Muslims make an incredibly valuable contribution to our country,Muslims are doctors, lawyers, law professors, members of the military, entrepreneurs, shopkeepers, moms and dads. And they need to be treated with respect. In our anger and emotion, our fellow Americans must treat each other with respect.The face of terror is not the true faith of Islam,Thatt represent peace. They represent evil and war.s founding values? Because it egged on by the grandstanding and lies of Donald Trump s a miracle drug.
 
In communities across America, we are turning on each other, on the very neighbors who have been part of the fabric of our country for decades.
 
Fredericksburg was also plastered with fliers that warned residents that they are about to be inundated with Syrian refugees.
 
“This means that hundreds of UN-VERIFIED and UN-SECURED Muslim MEN will be wandering your streets . . .” read the flier, which was reported in the Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star.
 
Baloney. Not only are there no plans for any resettlement in Fredericksburg, the screening process for refugees to get into the United States takes 18 to 24 months. And the plan by the Obama administration to allow 10,000 Syrian refugees into our vast country translates to about 200 per state. I somehow doubt all of them will take to the quaint streets of Fredericksburg.
 
To be fair, it borders to refugees. (Itt need help 
 
This happened in Howard County Choose Civility.s time for all of us to put a stop to it.
