The Center for American Progress has compiled a report in which seven foundations has been paid $42 million dollars to spread fear of Muslims in America.

“The report, titled “Fear Inc.: The Roots Of the Islamophobia Network In America,” documents which anti-Muslim organizations have played a part in the rise of Islamophobia throughout the country. The seven foundations include “Donors Capital Fund” and Richard Scaife Foundations, which received more than half of the $42 million spent.

The money has also been given to five key “scholars”, including Frank Gaffney, who are considered the masterminds of crafting anti-Muslim propaganda. Those scholars are assisted by the likes of Pamela Gellar and David Horowitz, who help pass off the negative information to Fox News, Allen West, and Newt Gingrich among others.
