Almost all of last year's top-10 darlings are still favorites this year (US baby names.) with a few exceptions. Revealing a rise in Arabic names, Muhammad and Aaliyah made the top 10 for the first time, replacing Mason and Layla.
Muhammad is considered the most popular name in the world, and UK news site Independent says it is "given to an estimated 150 million men and boys.
This has happened in other countries over the years and two things happened in conjunction with that.
1. Terrorism incidents increased
2. Antisemitism increased.
They tried to hide it in 2017 but got caught lying. And we all know what is happening in the UK as terror attacks continue and the left panders to the antisemitism of Muslim voters.The same has happened in various European countries.
Will it happen in the US? It's nice to imagine that the US is different; that it has some magical ability to resist all this. But look at the Dems response to antisemitism by the squad and their fans. No censure; only inclusion and support. Two leading 2020 candidates have made it clear that Israel is in their sights if they win.
I suspect the Corbynization of the Dems and an America that has Mohammed as the 10th most popular baby name has begun. And if the Dems win in 2020, well, goodnight Irene.
