It’s not just Trump: Islamophobia in America is spiraling out of control – Vox

“In 20 years I have not heard such intolerance and hatred from political leaders in this society,” Nihad Awad, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, told the Guardian.That didn’t come out of nowhere — it’s been building for months, in American politics and media and popular discourse. Trump is just the tip of an iceberg that runs much deeper than many Americans would like to believe. America’s climate of anti-Muslim hatred and fear, a form of bigotry known as Islamophobia, is rampaging out of control. And it has very real and legitimately scary implications for the millions of Americans who follow Islam.
