Comments on: Islamic State owes Donald Trump a debt of gratitude http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2015/12/10/islamic-state-owes-trump-a-debt-of-gratitude/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Whipsplash http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2015/12/10/islamic-state-owes-trump-a-debt-of-gratitude/#comment-1124069 Mon, 14 Dec 2015 16:48:48 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=45245#comment-1124069 I miss the old days when the republican party’s leaders at least pretended not to be racists and bigots (for the most part). Clearly the fear mongering and brainwashing that the GOP has exercised for decade after decade has taken its toll on not only its intended target of its under educated base but has affected its new crop of political wannabe’s who don’t possess an ounce of common sense.
It’s a relief not to have to try and support, or justify, the fear mongering, lies, misinformation, constant hate speech, and lack of any sign of the right doing anything at all positive for the working/middle class in America. The leadership must be proud of the job they’ve done on keeping the gun huggers, skin heads, white supremacist, under educated, and those completely void of common sense, afraid of their own shadows, and anyone who isn’t white. It’s a sad commentary on the state of republican party.

Trump included. They delude the conservative voters in the US, who they repeatedly call “stupid” in private, into voting for them. They WANT the voters to become outwardly, rabidly racist so they will have an excuse to suspend democratic institutions. The same way people argue we need dictators in the Middle East because their populations are extreme. Soon people will argue the same for the US. Trump probably won’t win, but if he did, that would be the end of American democracy. The only dissent would be internal, since the rest of the world would prefer a stable dictator at the helm of a crazy populace, and would be crushed by our overpowered law enforcement and police state apparatus.

It’s our fault for not educating everyone.

Breathless repeating each IS threat and provocation and airing all the propaganda messages because of the “people’s right to know”.

IS couldn’t recruit without you, Mohamad Bazzi, sitting at your cushy desk at NYU, safe from your fellow muslims

No one in the Muslim community is taking charge of public relations (Al Sharpton) to fight against terror. So naturally, non-Muslims are speaking out. something needs to be done to stop the terrorist and its high on ye list of priories in this next election. doing nothing is not an option.

These are the clueless Trump supporters whose knowledge of Islam and the world beyond their front porch is non-existent.

One who believes in the orders of their “holy book” that tells Muslims (“good Muslims”) to lie to infidels and kill, rape, enslave all who will not convert to their vile and evil “religion”.

One who believes that sharia law should be the law in ALL countries. One who would destroy any freedoms for those who now have them. One who is welcomed by Reuters as a contributor.

This is not a new
phenomenon.

Trump used words only. Words do no kill! The blame goes to those that committed the offense. Reporters fuel the problem by assigning blame and pointing fingers in the wrong direction. Start reporting accurately. It would be more constructive.

In a war I don’t see the relevance of political statements such as “handing them a verbal victory”. In a war when the enemy is dedicated to your destruction, tactics and strategy are summed to only one goal – victory over your enemy. The rest is noise.
