The truth, stated bluntly. Well done. Hopefully enough people outside the fringe left wake up to the facts
Trump is running a brilliant campaign.He says something that is a little outrageous but has roots in what the American people would like to hear.He gets tons of press when he makes the statement.He then clarifies what he said and gets tons of more press explaining it.Meanwhile more people come to his rallies and his poll numbers go up.The Democrats and his Republican opponents are made to look weak by disagreeing with a suggestion that would make the US more secure even if it could never happen.He is playing political correctness against the Liberals and they don’t even know itWhat religion is more diametrically opposed to American constitutional rights than Islam?
I cannot disagree with your thesis, FT.But I refuse to be resigned to my "fate."
Nettie Potts saidCAN MUSLIMS BE GOOD AMERICANS? This question was forwarded to a friend who worked in Saudi Arabia for 20 years. The following is his reply: Theologically - NO. H is allegiance is to Allah, the moon god of Arabia . Religiously - NO. Because no other religion is accepted by Allah except Islam. (Koran 2:256) Scripturally - NO. Because his allegiance is to the five Pillars of Islam and the Koran. Geographically - NO. Because his allegiance is to Mecca to which he turns in prayer five times a day. Socially - NO. Because his allegiance to Islam forbids him to make friends with Christians or Jews. Politically - NO. Because he must submit to the mullahs (spiritual leaders), who teach annihilation of Israel and destruction of America, the great Satan. Domestically - NO. Because he is instructed to marry at least four women and to beat and scourge his wives if they disobeys him. (Koran 4:34 ) Intellectually - NO. Because he cannot accept the American Constitution since it is based on Biblical principles and he believes the Bible to be corrupt. Philosophically - NO. Because Islam, Mohammad, and the Koran do not allow freedom of religion or any form of expression. Democracy and Islam cannot co-exist, because every Islamic government is an authoritarian regime.Spiritually - NO. Because when we declare ourselves to be “one nation under God,” The Christian God as revealed in the Gospels is loving and kind, while Allah is never referred to as Heavenly Father, nor is he ever called Love in any of the Koran's 99 so-called Excellent Names. Therefore, after much study and deliberation it seems advisable that we should be suspicious of ALL Muslims infiltrating Western societies. Obviously they cannot be both “good” Muslims and “good” Americans or Frenchmen or Germans or Britons, etc. Call it what you will it's still the truth. The more we understand these things the better it is apt to be for our country and our future.
islamophobia: dislike of or prejudice against Islam or Muslims
FT, do you see the sort of idiocy this anti-Muslim stuff is producing? Do you really want this?And these cartoonish takes on complex subjects? Hillary Clinton is not the Devil. She's really no different than any other successful Baby Boomer liberated well-educated woman. Her history little different from any other powerful figure, man or woman. The engine of government over which she would preside is impossible to drive alone, and is always running, whether the President is sitting on the pot or not. It is a complex system. These cartoonish depictions - of Hillary Clinton, of Islam - do nothing to further anything but frothing, dumb, useless anger.JMJ
I would direct you attention to "the knee of the curve."
FT, do you see the sort of idiocy this anti-Muslim stuff is producing? lol! The Obama Pro-Muslim stuff has worked so well!
