More Mohammeds Than Americans Can Handle: Baby Names Menacing Western Society
The mental unrest was almost palpable after a report from the Washington Examiner detailed the following frightening information:
The number of U.S. newborns named “Mohammed” has jumped 100-fold since 1964, one way of determining the growth of second and third generation Muslims, according to a leading immigration watchdog.
Based on Social Security Administration baby name figures, there were only 29 babies born with one of the spellings of Mohammed in 1964. That has surged to 2,931.
The Center for Immigration Studies used the statistics to determine the growth of the Muslim community, a statistic the federal government doesn’t chart.
“Given the fact that some U.S.- or European-born Muslim terrorists (such as Syed Farook in San Bernardino) have been menacing Western societies, are there any statistics on the growth of the second-generation Muslim populations?” blogged CIS Fellow David North.
I sent this report to the exiled cultural philosopher Hubert Humdinger, who left me a voicemail on Skype. “Menacing Western societies?” he asked, repeating the quoted words of blogger David North. “Having a bunch of babies named Mohammed is a lot less terrifying than a surge in Baracks, Georges, Bills, Ronalds, and Richards!”
The old, unflappable philosopher let out a snort for rhetorical effect. “Talk about menacing societies,” he said, and the voicemail ended with a click.
