Why Trump’s temporary Muslim ban is necessary

Gen. David Petraeus is now auditioning to become Hillary Clinton’s vice presidential pick. There’s really no other way to interpret his recent column in The Washington Post, slamming Donald Trump for proposing a temporary ban on Muslim immigration.

Calling Mr. Trump’s statements “hate speech,” Gen. Petraeus essentially argues that anyone who dares to tell the truth about Islamic terrorism will only incite more Muslims to become Islamic terrorists, “[by] telling Muslims that the United States is at war with them and their religion.”

That statement assumes that the overwhelming majority of Muslims from Dearborn, Mich., to Kuala Lumpur are illiterate, stupid and blind.

    And he said it was Temporary.

      “There’s nothing so permanent as a ‘temporary’ government program” – Milton Friedman.

      Just saying…

        Well, I wouldn’t care if that one wasn’t temporary.

        In this case, that’s a feature, not a bug.

    Illiterate, stupid and blind? Two out of three ain’t bad.

    If we at war with Muslims —then we would stop letting then into the Country.
    They keep saying that they are at war with us.

    What are you assholes going to blow up next for the Glory of Allah ?

    Somehow, this argument only works in one direction. Nobody ever says: “Don’t call them racist bigots, because that will only make them mad and create more racist bigots!”

      When you tell the TRUTH -it is not really an argument.

    The name Patraeus made me think of a real Man and a Patriot—
    What a disappointment.
    What a little lap doggie .

  • pdxnag

    Failure to implement Sharia in total is to be at war with Islam.

  • Americadies

    Patreaeus becomes more of a disappointment each day. The government has worked a deal with our former General which requires he give up all ethics and morals to keep his retirement benefits, hence he crawls into the slime that is the democrat party.

    In the past, even Democrats knew better than to welcome enemies inside the gates. One example would be FDR who didn’t have Nazi visas in WWII America.
