I think it is OK for anyone to write an op-ed about anything, and have that person say whatever he or she wants. Freedom of speech, and all. However, I do take exception when that opinion is based not on true facts, but assumptions and baseless generalizations. Bruce Bawer’s latest op-ed piece was also published in The Wall Street Journal. It is about Europe, of course, and the problems Europeans have with Muslim minorities. An interesting subject, but Bawer gets his facts wrong. That wouldn’t be such a problem, if only those wrong facts weren’t the basis for Bawer’s assumptions.
