Now type in “Christians are,” and you’ll get two suggestions:
But if you type in “Muslims are,” you get no hint that they are evil, pumpkin-like, or stupid. You get nothing at all:
So once again possible negative suggestions are filtered out for the world’s most thin-skinned and lethal religious believers — the ones waging a global campaign against free speech about the aspects of their religion that incite and justify violence and supremacism. What a coincidence!
