(Trump is the) ‘American version of Daesh’

Here is my pending comment, which they may or may not post. (To be fair Arab News is quite good about posting hostile comments. Much better than is, say, ABC. Probably braver than I’d be operating out of Saudi):

You know, guys, this is really pathetic. You’re not even pretending to try to sound like grown-ups. Tsk.

Although on reflection maybe you’re on to something. In fact, yes, I guess I could kind of dig this. Everyone who says something I disagree with is exhibiting “the same core characteristics of Daesh terrorists”. If I don’t like what you say, you are clearly exhibiting “the intransigence and disrespect” towards my feelings which is pretty much exactly the same as committing genocide, raping slave girls, sawing off heads, setting people on fire and blowing up the archaeological heritage of the Middle East.

I guess this is kind of a less subtle and more hysterical version of the famous Godwin’s Law [defined by Wikipedia as: an Internet adage asserting that “As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 1″[2][3]—​that is, if an online discussion (regardless of topic or scope) goes on long enough, sooner or later someone will compare someone or something to Hitler or Nazism.]

I’m going to give Arab News the benefit of the doubt and assume you’re trolling. I find it hard to judge because of the cultural dissonance and all that.

  • Well said.

    • Thanks. How far is this, really, from lefty Western talking points? It’s just slightly less sophisticated.

    Good Lord, I hope Trump REALLY IS our version of Daesh!
    That would be the greatest thing in the world.
    Oh PLEASE let this be true.

    Well, I think it’s time for folk to be afraid of antagonizing white Christians. Why let the Muzz have all the fun?

    Gee I missed the part of Trump inciting the killing of all infidels, apostates, homosexuals and whatever else. Oh, I almost forgot that he hasn’t advocated beheading, stoning and genital mutilation of females. Advocating ending Muslim invasion and the invasion by all non desirable illegals is a far cry from any Muslim group.

    We’ll see if this gets passed:

    “Donald Trumps body count: 0
    Donald’s plan of excluding Muslims potential body count: 0
    Body count of Muslim atrocities in the last year: Oh, 1000 or more.

    Yep, Just like Islamic State.”

    BTW BM’s and DBN’s comments were passed.

  • No but Trump is a progressive liberal.
