Last week in Nashville, TN, a mosque was vandalized. After the positive community response was highlighted by Andrew Sullivan this afternoon, the comments section of various Nashville-area blogs covering the crime were flooded with strident anti-Muslim trolls – hey, it’s Teh Internets; we all know how this works, right?
