When George W. Bush lied America into a war in Iraq, he took great pains to distance us from any kind of “war on Islam.” Even though he let loose Christian fanatics like Erik Prince (brother of Trump’s choice for Sec. of Ed., Betsy DeVos, herself a religious kook), Bush took great pains to avoid embroiling us in a “holy war.” Why? Because that’s exactly what the foaming-at-the-mouth jihadists want. They want a holy war because it’s the best recruiting material imaginable.
And fucking Donald Trump just gave it to them with his idiotic Muslim ban. No, it doesn’t matter in the slightest that it’s technically not a ban on Muslims. That how people perceive and you better goddamn believe that’s how extremist Muslims are selling it:
Jihadist groups on Sunday celebrated the Trump administration’s ban on travel from seven Muslim-majority countries, saying the new policy validates their claim that the United States is at war with Islam.
Comments posted to pro-Islamic State social media accounts predicted that President Trump’s executive order would persuade American Muslims to side with the extremists. One posting hailed the U.S. president as “the best caller to Islam,” while others predicted that Trump would soon launch a new war in the Middle East.
Not only does this put American civilians all over the world in danger, it puts our troops in even more danger as more and more Muslims are radicalized, not by other Muslims but by the actions of Trump and his goons. As it is, our presence is viewed with suspicion by Muslims in countries we’ve been indiscriminately bombing for over a decade. What do you think will happen when they decide we’re just there to kill Muslims and steal their oil? Is that going to make them more or less likely to detonate an IED?
Donald Trump is a threat to the security of the United States and must be removed before he gets Americans killed by the thousands.
