According to the UK Independent, “One person would be too many.” According to BNI, seven people is a good start! And they haven’t even gotten to whining about the other two other anti-Islam generals nominated for Defense Secretary and Homeland Security Secretary.
Independent Designated terrorist group CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) has compiled a list of racist (“RACIST?” I thought we were talking about religion, NOT race, which Islam definitely is not) quotations expressed by everyone from the incoming head of the justice department, Jeff Sessions, to the new National Security Advisor General Michael Flynn.
“It’s not in their [Muslims’] conscience, life like we understand life. It just isn’t.”
In a July op-ed for the New York Post, Flynn called the the Muslim world
“an epic failure compared to the superiority of the West.”
“Islam a cancer and fear of it is justified.”
“Islam a political ideology that hides behind being a religion.”
KT McFarland, the Fox News analyst and Donald Trump’s incoming Deputy National Security Adviser, is just one of six people who have been appointed to run the government come January 2017 – excluding the president-elect himself – who have openly expressed prejudiced views about Muslims.
“Political correctness, of not discriminating against Muslims “is getting us killed.”
“There is a war on. And the war is against all of western civilisation…If we do not destroy the scourge of radical Islam, it will ultimately destroy Western civilization.”
Dr. Ben Carson, the new US Housing and Urban Development Secretary, said he believes that there is a Muslim plot to take over America, called “civilizational jihad.” He compared Syrian refugees to rabid dogs and said:
“Bringing in people from the Middle East right now carries extra danger and we cannot put our people at risk because we are trying to be politically correct.”
Kansas congressman Mike Pompeo, who will serve as the head of the CIA, defended a staffer who posted a link to a blog on his social media accounts that used the slur “turban topper” and called president Barack Obama an “evil Muslim communist USURPER.“
He also blamed Muslim leaders for their “silence” and “complicity” after the 2013 Boston Marathon attacks.
Stephen Bannon, Mr Trump’s senior counsel and Chief Strategist is one of the founders of ‘white supremacist’ platform Breitbart, (“White supremacist?” Seriously? Andrew Breitbart was Jewish, the current editor-in-chief of Breitbart is Orthodox Jewish and Breitbart is well-known as one of the most pro-Israel blogs on the web).
Bannon compared Shariah to “Nazism, racism and communism”. He also accused Virginia democratic senator Tim Kaine as being affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood. (He is)
One of Trump’s closest advisors is former speaker of the house Newt Gingrich, who advocated making all Muslims take a religious “test.”
“We should, frankly, test every person here who is of a Muslim background and if they believe in Sharia, they should be deported,” said Mr Gingrich.
And talk about fake news, the Independent takes remarks by New Jersey governor Chris Christie out of context when he said
Shariah law is “crap” and he is fed up of “dealing with the crazies.”
Yes, he said that but he was scolding Americans who were upset that Christie had appointed a Muslim lawyer who had defended Muslim terrorists as a Superior Court judge. Christie was berating his fellow Americans when he said “I am sick of all this sharia law crap,” and “dealing with the crazies” (“Crazies” being the Americans who fear that a judge with a history of defending terrorists is a dangerous choice). This was probably one of the reasons Donald Trump dropped Christie as his transition manager.
