You’re more likely to die at the hands of a White Supremacist than a Muslim in the US; so yes, put away the tin-foil.

Which is to say fundamentalists of all types are dangerous; yet your false equivalency that all (or even most) Muslims are dangerous is tripe.

You do realize they’re part of the same species as you are, right?
Bigots just don't have a lot of common sense sometimes.

So now all Baptists are the enemy? Even Black ones that typically vote Democrat? Dont forget those evil Catholics, more Dem voters. At least your showing your anti Christian bias

That's a red herring. Even Mike Pence is hardly a "fundamentalist Christian". He's just a conservative who values the constitution as written and happens to be Christian. Conservatives tend to be Christians. You just want conservatives out of the government.

But that's just a belief some people hold....and there is no evidence that those beliefs are shaping public policy...really what you admit is that you are engaged in an ideological war for control of the government, so you can insert YOUR ideology.

Which is what we KNOW you are all doing.

But you're going to fail. The government will no longer be hijacked by progressive or commie ideologues.

The government will be a fully constitutional, strictly interpreted, limited government as the Founders intended.

And all of this extraneous stuff, these usurpations and expansions of federal authority, will eventually be washed away.

Over 3200 murdered by people screaming "Allah Akbar" in the last 17 years and you would have us believe more White Supremist killed people. The last time White Supremists killed anywhere near those numbers were when Democrats created the KKK.
