Why Trump’s Temporary Muslim Ban Makes Sense

In the aftermath of the horrific mass shooting in Orlando, President Barack Obama, presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, and House Speaker Paul Ryan found themselves united in outrage. Unequivocally, they issued their condemnations: “Dangerous,” “shameful,” and “pathological.”

Their target, however, was not the radical Islamic ideology that inspired the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil since 9/11. No, the politicians were referring to GOP presumptive presidential nominee Donald J. Trump and his proposal to temporarily ban Muslims from entering the United States. It was yet another example of elevating self-righteousness over reality and delusions over solutions.

    Why a Temporary ban? It should be permanent, or at least until some future millennium when Islam reforms itself.

    Islams bring NOTHING of value, only trouble.

    It’s not like the west needs immigrants to do jobs: business has very capable machines that can work 24/7 with no lunch breaks.

    Alone among these political big shots, Trump is unwilling to play Russian roulette with our lives. For that reason, he has my support.
