Donald Trump finally clarifies who caused September 11
Love him, hate him, or somewhere in-between, observers of this run-up to the Republican presidential nomination have to admit, by virtue of his brash wealth persona, Donald Trump is shaking up political campaigning. Saying out loud what many secretly think but are afraid to say while framing his own narrative and issues, Trump is attracting backers who have long felt neglected by their candidates from both parties. His well-known stance on illegal immigration is the most obvious. His assertion that he could have crafted a better Iran deal for America because of his self-publicized skills as a deal-maker is another. And on Sunday, appearing on multiple talk shows, he did it again. Several times.
Scolded by the liberal PC guardians for not correcting/answering a questioner at one of his public forums, who insisted that President Obama is a Muslim and that Muslims are problematic (a plant? No scolding reporter managed to get the questioner's name or background), Trump shot back (excuse the description):
"It wasn't people from Sweden who blew up the World Trade Center," Trump told Jake Tapper on CNN's "State of the Union."
"I get that — but to say we have a problem and it's called Muslims because there are some extremist Muslims, is tarring all Muslims," said Tapper.
"Well I don't agree with that at all, but you have extremist Muslims that are in a class by themselves," said Trump, who leads the Washington Examiner's presidential power rankings. "It is a problem in this country and it's a problem throughout the world. I mean all you have to do is look at Europe."
"We can be politically correct and say there is no problem whatsoever, but the fact is, there is a problem with some and it's a very severe problem and it's a problem that's taking place all over the world," Trump said in an interview with NBC's "Meet the Press."
Without describing the terrorist as oppressed or disaffected, Trump then unabashedly continued, using the "some of my (best) friends" are Muslims cliché.
"I have such great respect and love for so many of the people — they are great people," he added characteristically. "I know so many Muslims that are such fabulous people."
Well, glad to finally know who crashed into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and that field in Pennsylvania. Thanks for telling it straight, Donald Trump, without excuses about Islam as a "religion of peace" – something very few are willing to say publicly.
But, by the way, Donald, a small correction: in a future attack, it could be people from Sweden. Muslims from Sweden. Or Muslims from France. Or Germany. Because that's where they are going. And that's where they are living. As mentioned here several months ago, "Muslim Sacralized Rape and Feminized Sweden."
And the ruling coalition (in Sweden) is now trying to abolish all religious schools – not because they worry about Jews or Lutherans educating their kids the way they want to, but because they know perfectly well that violent jihad is being taught in all the Wahhabi mosques and madrassas.
