'News and Views of a Frustrated Editor and His Featured Guests '
After the tragedy of Orlando was playing out in the media…I recall an interview by FOX with Trump I believe it was Hannity….when asked Trump said that US Muslims have not done very well assimilating into the American society……I thought them that he was talking out his ass……
Second generation American Muslims that I know have assimilated well and have become American in every way possible……but yet Trump says differently……
After the mass shooting in Orlando by a man who pledged allegiance to the Islamic terrorist group ISIS, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump reiterated his call for a temporary ban on Muslims coming to the United States.
During an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, Trump elaborated on one of the problems he sees with the Muslim community in America.
Hannity said that Muslims have different religious and cultural practices than many Americans. He asked Trump, “If you grow up (as a Muslim overseas) and you want to come to America, how do we vet somebody’s heart and ascertain if they’re coming here for freedom or if they want to proselytize, indoctrinate and bring their theocracy with them?”
I had some thoughts on assimilation and the dreaded “multiculturalism“…I even wrote an op-ed for another site, Ace News Room, on the subject……
I had some thoughts about the massive anti-Muslim movement…..it seems that they all are looking for cash to “keep the ideals” in the forefront of American political thought……millions are pouring into the movement helping it to become very profitable……
More than $200m was spent towards promoting “fear and hatred” of Muslims in the United States by various organisations between 2008 and 2013, according to a fresh joint report by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the University of California, Berkeley.
Released on Monday, the reportidentifies 74 groups, including feminist, Christian, Zionist and prominent news organisations, which either funded or fostered Islamophobia.
“It is an entire industry of itself. There are people making millions of dollars per year from promoting Islamophobia. They often present themselves as experts on Islamic affairs when they are not,” Wilfredo Amr Ruiz
These days Muslims are being used as have the vets as stage props for political campaigns…….
First of all, Islam has deep roots in American history. It was brought to the United States in the hearts of many of the Africans who were forced here on slave ships. So Islam is not some foreign entity to the U.S. that can choose to “stay here.” It has been here for centuries.
But even if Muslims just landed on the shores of this country more recently, they shouldn’t be subjected to additional tests that gauge how much they love America in order to earn the right to live here.
How many times have you heard some knuckle dragging idiot as that Muslims do not condemn the acts of the barbarous groups?
I have offered many posts that illustrate that is not true…..but the idiots do not want hear it and will not read the facts offered…..the problem is that the Muslims must spend all their energy trying to counter the Islamophobia hate…..
Conservatives love to demonize Muslims and, all too often, so do liberals. Politicians, law enforcement and the media are complicit in blaming religion for war and violent crime — but only when that religion is Islam. Human rights lawyer Arsalan Iftikhar highlights these double standards and defends his faith in Scapegoats.
You have been schooled……
Some closing thoughts……
