The Muslims in Pensacola have not been charged with any crime. Its basically guilt by association and they absolutely should go back to Arabia. In fact the SAG called them back.Every day I see more clues that Trump is going to run in part on being "tough on terror". He did the same in 2016, calling Obama the founder of ISIS.
He gave Obama a lot of grief for failing to "vet" the San Bernadino & Pulse shooters, both of whom were born in the US.
Trump railed about banning Muslims & enacting "extreme vetting" and since his becoming president has taken the number of refugees to almost zero.
After droning Suliemani, he warned Iran not to retaliate and when they did, he did not respond, instead opting to tweet "all is well" because the missiles fired at our bases in Iraq didn't kill anyone.
The minute the Pensacola shooting happened, he started defending the KSA and often brags about them "paying cash" in return for our troops being stationed there as security guards for oil fields.
This thread is my attempt to provide balance to argument that Dems are Muslim loving terrorist sympathizers by pointing out the hypocrisy in Trump's policy towards majority Muslim countries.
I thought for a while that the part of Trump's base who claimed their support was partly due to him not starting a new war was sincere, but lately I see it turning to beating war drums and resorting to the same demonization of Democrats on the "war on terror" we've seen since 2004.
It was be nice if Americans weren't always so easily influenced by this crap, but since they are, I feel like it's up to those who don't want another 4 years of abuse from Trump and his minions to speak up now. I'm one of those people.
If Trump intends to run on the same lies he ran on in 2016, his actual record on terror should be examined for truth. His handling of terrorist attacks in the US by foreigners is part of that record.
In 2016 he said, as a response to the San Bernardino shooting:
"You don't want to hear how I'd handle it," Trump said. "I would get myself in so much trouble with them, we are going to handle it so tough. And you know what we're going to do? We're going to get it stopped."
He didn't stop it and one has to wonder why if we're going to have to listen for the next 9 months how Democrats are terrorism lovers.
Maybe I'm crazy for trying to fight the rabid hatred of the right with the truth they don't seem to care about, but I'm trying to avoid becoming just like the people who seem to be at war not with a foreign country or terrorists, but instead are focused on demoralizing non-Republicans here in the USA. It's getting really hard.
