All of the stuff that he's been saying lately about how huge numbers of American Muslims are supporters of terrorism is way more outlandish than even the stuff that our village idiot used to say before he got sore at Pod and took his baseball and went home:
The New York Times - Fact Check wrote:A poll asserting that 25 percent of Muslim Americans condone acts of violence against other Americans was from a “very highly respected group of people.”
More like “widely shunned.”
Calling for all Muslims to be barred from entering the United States, Mr. Trump cited a poll released in June by an organization called the Center for Security Policy. The group said that an online survey of 600 Muslims living in the United States found that 25 percent agreed with the statement that “violence against Americans here in the United States can be justified as part of the global jihad.”
Mr. Trump vouched for the group at a rally on Monday night. But the poll — conducted by the Polling Company, a Republican firm — is in no way truly representative of all Muslim Americans because of its methodology. The poll was not based on a random sample, but included only people who chose to participate, and therefore is not representative of the population being studied. In addition, some of the questions were leading and biased.
And though Mr. Trump may respect the organization that sponsored the survey, it has taken such extreme positions against Islam that it is shunned or ignored by most national security experts and policy makers.
Frank J. Gaffney Jr., the founder and president of the Center for Security Policy, has claimed that Muslims are planning to impose Islamic Shariah law in the United States; that President Obama is aligned with the Muslim Brotherhood, an extremist political movement born in Egypt; and that agents of the Muslim Brotherhood have infiltrated the United States government, the Republican Party and conservative political organizations.
The Southern Poverty Law Center describes Mr. Gaffney as “one of America’s most notorious Islamophobes” who is “gripped by paranoid fantasies about Muslims destroying the West from within.”
Of course we recognize Frank Gaffney's name, because he and Pamela Gellar are Shaun's two favorite leading Islamophobes. But even Dade didn't stoop to trying to use one of their manufactured, self-serving polls when he went around raving about how all True Muslims wanted to kill him. He at least cited real polls. (That inconveniently showed that Mormons and Jews are both way bigger supporers of violent extremism and killing innocent civilians in the name of religion.)
Then of course there's this fabrication:
Donald Trump wrote:I watched when the World Trade Center came tumbling down. And I watched in Jersey City, New Jersey, where thousands and thousands of people were cheering as that building was coming down.
Even though that's obviously not true I would expect people here to be cheering him on. A little fabrication here and there to make Muslims look evil never hurt anybody right?
Now he wants to ban all Muslims from entering the United States, and he's been talking about how FDR put Japanese immigrants into interment camps. Why don't any of the haters here have the nuts to just come out and say that's what you want?
How could you spend a couple of years on spouting hatred for Muslims nearly every single day and then let this guy come along and upstage you? Hurry up and propose that Muslims should be required to wear identifying badges on their clothing before he beats you to it.
Maybe somebody could propose a set of laws aimed at protecting America by preventing Muslims from intermarrying with non-Muslims? We don't want to allow weak Americans to have religiously impure offspring. How about laws for Americanizing Muslim businesses by dismissing the Muslim workers and transferring ownership to proper Christians?
