American Public Perception...or reality and truth?

This morning I read a post in the Confessions group with this meme, or whatever you might call it, seen below. Here is a link to that POST.  

I do not know enough to say whether or not *I* personally think this is true, but the overwhelming responses in the affirmative kinda surprised me.

So what do you think?

THE MUSLIMS ARE NOT HAPPY!

They’re not happy in Gaza.
They’re not happy in Egypt.
They’re not happy in Libya.
They’re not happy in Morocco.
They’re not happy in Iran.
They’re not happy in Iraq.
They’re not happy in Yemen.
They’re not happy in Afghanistan.
They’re not happy in Pakistan.
They’re not happy in Syria.
They’re not happy in Lebanon.

SO, WHERE ARE THEY HAPPY?

They’re happy in Australia.
They’re happy in Canada.
They’re happy in England.
They’re happy in France.
They’re happy in Italy.
They’re happy in Germany.
They’re happy in Sweden.
They’re happy in the USA.
They’re happy in Norway.
They’re happy in Holland.
They’re happy in Denmark.

Basically, they’re happy in every country that is not Muslim…and unhappy in every country that is!

AND WHO DO THEY BLAME?

Not Islam.
Not their leadership.
Not themselves.

THEY BLAME THE COUNTRIES THEY ARE HAPPY IN! And then—wait for it!—they want to change those countries to be like….THE COUNTRIES THEY CAME FROM WHERE THEY WERE UNHAPPY!

Excuse me, but I can’t help wondering…how damn dumb can you get?

     Please try and overlook the dumb comment it ends with; obviously no person is "dumb" because of their feelings/beliefs.

    Thanks

    I believe the quote does have some merit, then again, there are plenty that love this country and came here to have a better life and don't begrudge this country anything.

    It sounds like a gross generalization. Of course the person who wrote this doesn't know every single Muslim person.

    My vote goes to "gross oversimplification of a complex geopolitical issue".

    Do we really need to know "every single" muslim...

    Black person....

    Woman.....

    Insert any other minority?


    Why do we need to know every person? Generalizations aren't all that bad.

    Well of course. Its politically correct to not accept this persons perspective.
