On November 1, MSNBC liberal Chris Hayes tweeted this pithy comment: “One way to look at this election is: who are the literal Nazis and Klansmen supporting? Maybe I should look elsewhere.”
But then again, Nazis and Klansmen aren’t exactly a terrifying force in today’s United States, are they? It wasn’t Nazis who killed 14 Americans in San Bernardino last November. It wasn’t the KKK that killed 49 people at a gay nightclub this summer. White supremacists didn’t change the New York City skyline on September 11.
Hillary Clinton has not made any promises to eradicate white nationalist terror groups, has she? Of course not. Because such a proposal would only inspire laughter. No one is the least bit concerned about the rise of white terror, any more than they’re concerned about a werewolf apocalypse.
These are cynical distractions to keep Americans from focusing on the real threat facing the country: radical Islamic terrorism.
According to new statistics from Pew Research and Homeland Security, a Hillary Clinton presidency would send America’s Muslim population through the roof. Through an expansion of the Syrian refugee program, Hillary would bring an additional 65,000 Muslims into the U.S. in her first year alone. That’s on top of the 150,000 Muslim immigrants already streaming into the country. If she were to keep that pace alive throughout a two-term presidency, America would have a Muslim population larger than that of France’s.
According to a survey conducted by the Council on American-Islamic Relations last month, 72% of registered Muslim voters plan to cast their ballots for Hillary. Only 4% are planning to vote for Donald Trump.
“I usually don’t thank the candidates but I’d like to thank Trump for energizing the Muslim community in an unprecedented fashion,” said CAIR leader Nihad Awad. “The Muslim community feels the heat and the brunt of the propaganda, but also understands it’s important for them to vote.”
The “propaganda” in this case meaning that Trump is the only politician willing to point out what’s blindingly obvious to everyone who hasn’t been elected to office, which is that these constant terror attacks have something in common.
Oh wait, not everyone.
From the New York Times, regarding the impossibility of figuring out who might bomb innocent civilians:
“What turns people toward violence — and whether they can be steered away from it — are questions that have bedeviled governments around the world for generations. Those questions have taken on fresh urgency with the rise of the Islamic State and the string of attacks in Europe and the United States. Despite millions of dollars of government-sponsored research, and a much-publicized White House pledge to find answers, there is still nothing close to a consensus on why someone becomes a terrorist.”
Who knows? It’s a mystery! Well, you know, beyond the fact that they all happen to believe in the same religion. But that’s just a coincidence. That doesn’t have anything to do with it. It’s racist to suggest such a thing. How dare you.
Liberals will assure us, over and over again, that the majority of Muslims do not condone or participate in terrorism. That’s great. They’re undoubtedly correct.
But you’ll notice that they never say the same thing about white supremacists.
Maybe it’s because no one has a reason to think otherwise.
