Islamaphobia, or anti-muslim sentiment is extremely prominant, and extremely accepted in society.
Which society? What constitutes as "extremely accepted"? Most people whom I've seen display anti-Islamic sentiment are labeled as "racist", or "Islamophobic".
Even though terrorist groups and actions have been done by isolated people, the country has united against the billion+ people who are members of the religon.
To start off, while terrorists themselves are a tiny minority, many Muslims worldwide aren't exactly hippy dippy lovelies themselves: https://www.youtube.com/
So much so, that the republican party fought to show Obama as a Muslim, as if that discredited him as a presidential canidate.
No. Certain Republicans/right-wingers accused Obama of being a Muslim. I don't recall the Republican Part officially espousing this belief at any point in time (although I wouldn't be surprised if they were involved in the birther controversy.)
What can/should be done about this, or anything?
Learn to differentiate between blind paranoia and criticism of a religion, for one. Dismissing it all as "Islamophobia" (like oh so many do) doesn't help in the slightest.
Or what is your opinion on Islamaphobia in general?
I don't know. What are we considering "Islamophobia" here?
Some argue that islamaphobia is the most accepted form of discrimination in the United States. Do you agree?
Not in the mainstream media. Dunno about elsewhere, you'll have to be more specific.
