Donald Trump is fast becoming the country’s most notorious source for misinformation. It seems nothing the Donald says is true and the massive public exposure he was obviously ill-prepared for has him spouting some off-the-cuff idiocy that will go into the record books as the dumbest things ever said right next to Sarah Palin’s “you can see Russia from Alaska.”
The latest Trumpism™ is ridiculous on no less than two levels. Trump, notorious hater of Mexicans, is now advocating for Christians to be allowed to immigrate to the U.S.; apparently forgetting that over 90 percent of Mexicans are Christians. So The Donald, believing that Mexicans are murderers and rapists, will overlook their many negative qualities if they’re Christians?
Yeah, not quite. Hating Mexicans and loving Christians, while ignoring that Mexicans are Christians, is the first level of absurdity with Trump’s guffaw. The second level, and this one is even better, has to do with persecuted Christians in Syria and Trump’s complete refusal to fact-check anything he says.
No, Trump never makes the Mexican connection to Christianity and he likely never will. This bout of idiocy has to do with appeasing the ignorant base of fools keeping him at the top of the polls, by using talking points they love to get riled up about, regardless of the facts behind the issue.
Trump is outraged that only Muslims from Syria are allowed asylum in the U.S. while Christians are refused, persecuted and beheaded.
Trump didn’t mean Mexican Christians, he meant Syrian Christians. Mexican Christians shouldn’t qualify because of their dual status as rapists. When speaking about Syrian Christians, Trump gets to pander to the right-wing lunacy in a couple of ways: He gets to love Christians AND hate Muslims.
It’s a win-win, for the Donald anyway. For people who pay attention, it’s ridiculous. It’s disgusting propaganda, it’s a lie and he should be held down while his comb over is clipped and donated to a dog with mange.
According to Trump:
If you’re from Syria and you’re a Christian, you cannot come into this country. And they’re the ones that are being persecuted. If you’re Islamic and you come in, hard to believe, you can come in so easily. In fact, it’s one of our main groups of people that are coming in. Not that we should discriminate against one or the other. But if you’re Christian, you cannot get into the country. You cannot get in. I thought that was unbelievable. We have to do something about it.
Trump is, of course, riling up the base on one of their favorite subjects:the Islamic State. ISIS in Syria is persecuting everyone who doesn’t conform to their particular brand of crazy. If you’re Christian you automatically qualify and if you’re Muslim, but not extreme enough you’re in the same boat. So why then is America refusing to allow Syrian Christians into the country?
It must be Obama. He only wants Muslims. He hates Christians as much as he hates America. He wants to turn our country over to Mullahs and institute Sharia law as soon as possible. That has to be it.
Donald Trump’s nose is growing and there’s smoke coming from his trouser region.
Liar, liar, pants on fire, Donald.
According to the State Department, anyone who is a victim of persecution due to the Syrian conflict is welcome to apply for asylum in the United States. A new rule instituted in 2014 has already assisted more than a million refugees from Syria in relocating to the U.S.
Things like facts don’t matter to Donald Trump; having a crowd of hateful old men on Hoverounds and ignorant rednecks in Confederate flag T-shirts shake their fists at Islam and shout “hell yeah!” at his talking points, no matter how untruthful, is all he cares about.
At some point people with a brain will matter. That’s when the Palin Effect™ will kick in and his absolute disregard for the truth, the poor and anything that doesn’t feed off of that stupid angry look he always has will send him into oblivion as the laughingstock of this election cycle.
What a glorious day that will be.
