    According to FBI statistics, Jews are (by far) the most frequent victims of religious bigotry. Don’t hold your breath waiting for Muslims to join in condemnation of that.

    We address Muslims here because it is currently relevant. Trump is openly advocating actions which attack the very nature of civil liberties in this nation.

    How many people in a major political party, running for the highest office, are advocating wholesale systematic discrimination of Jews, right now? None.

    At this point I can’t help but think Trump is playing the most elaborate joke on the GOP ever. He has tapped into their inner cretin.

    When one looks at the “Islamic Countries” in the world, where NO ONE is allowed to try to introduce or spread any other kind of belief system but Islam . . ., why is being concerned with the proliferation of masses of Muslims streaming into this currently non Muslim country, such a horrible thing to understand?

    Why aren’t the standard Christian bashers not arm in arm with Trump on this? Muslims represent a far wider swath of anti-progressive groups than Christianity could ever dream of. It’s fascinating to watch Christians being bashed into slivers by the Left while Muslims that are ten-times more anti-Western and non-assimilating . . . get a welcome wagon reception.
