Hate crime stats in the US…
why the fuck do the atheists complain so much?
persecution complex, which they then project on US
One factor is that no one can easily identify an atheist at first glance, which is where most of the crimes come in - identify and target.
I don’t think there’s ever been any rash of hate crimes against atheists, at least not in the last few decades.. Discrimination against atheists has mainly come in the form of government restrictions imposing religion on them in the past, such as in schools, as well as rather extreme statements against them by government officials up to and including a former President. But in terms of actually fearing for their safety, those days are essentially past. Not so for Jews and Muslims, clearly.
i think also important is the fact that atheists have never been racialized in the way jews and muslims have in the u.s.? like, jews and muslims have historically been excluded meaningfully from the colonialist concept of whiteness, but no one’s ever questioned the whiteness of atheists
probably in large part because atheism is perhaps the only ‘religious’ group which tends to have very little to do with one’s particular ethnic background. most atheists probably weren’t raised atheist, and atheism has never been connected to a racialized & exploited ethnicity
like, even though its at surface a “religious” label, in terms of social functioning “atheist” seems to have more in common with a label like “democrat” or “libertarian” - it’s not racialized or otherwise transgressive & thus unlikely to be seen as cause for violence
