Yes, he does have that problem. Hillary has problems too. I'd prefer to make my choice on the message they send, as I understand it.

They could teBrutus about his sacrifice also.

They immigrated here from Palestine.
That was work place violence on Obama's order, so it doesnt count. Individual Muslims are not the problem but Islam is. They cant live with each other, how could they be expected to live with us infidels.

Neither would you, by the way.
They aren't immigrants RIGHT NOW nor will they be after Trump takes offices. So they got NO skin in the game.

Remember the Ebola scare? Why were a handful of countries picked for quarantine? I bet you could argue that 99% of the people there were Ebola-free too.
Ebola was another example of an over reaction by our country to be perfectly safe.


A rather large majority of Muslims are peaceful, what do you propose. This type of reaction is exactly what ISIS wants.

No they are not.

Pew research shows otherwise.

50+ Muslim countries are hell holes for Women, LGBT and Minoritites.

The stats compares killings done in the name of an ideology or political reasons, that's what it is comparing. Muslims with only 1% population are vying for the top spot.

Columbine shooting happened in 1991, if you want to roll the clock back till then, you then have to add 9/11 done by the Muslims. Be careful what you wish for.
Columbine was 1999. Clearly the responder did want to include the 9-11 attack with 19 Muslims in the name of terror.

Correct me if I'm wrong, guy who's already been kicked off the forum, but didn't Trump at one point mention having surveillance in Mosques in the US?

But a point I'm more interested in, this unknown person you're referring to who is at the very least anti-Trump said something and it's now being translated into a lie from the left. I guess my question is how? No name provided and he sounds more like he's just speaking for himself, and I want to know how this translates to an issue where this view represents or is coming from the entirely of people who are left of center, most of whom disagree with each other on quite a lot. And since this guy's been booted, I'd love an explanation from anyone of the many dwellers of this forum who have this same sort of sentiment.
