At the risk of sounding like I’m agreeing with Donald Trump on anything, I have to point out just how invested in the idea of “peaceful Muslims” the left is, even to our own detriment.
In one of the emails from the mailbox of Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta, it is revealed how despondent he was when the San Bernardino, California shooter from 2015 didn’t turn out to be a lily-white, Christian, average American Joe-type.
“Better if a guy named Sayeed Farouk was reporting that a guy named Christopher Hayes was the shooter,” Podesta wrote in a Dec. 2, 2015, email to Karen Finney, a Clinton campaign spokeswoman.
Podesta was referring to MSNBC host Christopher Hayes, who had tweeted at the time that a U.S. citizen named “Sayeed Farouk” was believed to be one of the people involved in the shooting.
Because wild-eyed Caucasians fit the narrative of the left, so much better.
In the attack, 14 people lost their lives, while 22 more were injured. At the time, these were said to be co-workers of Farouk. He had no beef with any of them, from all accounts, and they even threw he and his wife a baby shower, at one point.
Farouk and his wife were thought to have been radicalized through internet sources and a steady diet of propaganda from outside of the U.S.
Both Farouk and his wife, Tashfeen Malik were killed in a shootout with police.
Now, before anyone thinks that I’m about to board the Trump train, just stop.
I’ve always said that he had a point to make about immigration, unchecked entrance of refugees, and the like, but I’ve also equally said he’s not the one to make that point.
Because he’s an idiot. He has neither the temperament, nor the intellect to sit down and come to solutions that will both protect our nation and likewise prevent undue bias and mistreatment of others.
All he has is angry rhetoric, and that will not make American great again, no matter how many hats say it.
