Islamaphobia fuels the fire of hate speech in America today – and is exacerbated by recent events, such as the shooting death of two Muslim gunmen in Texas.

Muslim Day at the Texas State Capitol is an annual event at which Muslims gather to talk to legislators. During the seventh annual event in January 2015, counter-demonstrators also gathered with signs and shouts asserting that Sharia law is coming to the US, accusing Muslims of financing terror, and calling for Muslims to go home or assimilate.
