The media and many on the Left are taking what Trump has said, which is a very sane reaction, and turning it into exactly what the Left wants: sympathy for Muslims.
You’d be a crazy American to want Syrian or any other Muslim refugees in the wake of Paris (twice), and now the second largest Muslim terrorist attack in American history.
But it’s Trump the Left says is crazy?
Then most of America must be crazy because many of us agree that we need to stop the Muslim (terrorist) influx. The Left knows that if they say it often enough, people will begin to believe there is some conspiracy against Muslims and not the other way around.
Here is how CNN reported it:
Donald Trump sparked a firestorm of criticism from liberals, conservatives and those in between when he called for a ban on Muslims entering the United States.
But while such a ban is unlikely to be implemented in a country founded by immigrants, the cheers that followed his announcement at the South Carolina rally are telling.
“I think that we should definitely disallow any Muslims from coming in. Any of them,” supporter Charlie Marzka, 75, told CNN. “The reason is simple: we can’t identify what their attitude is.”
Indeed, the truth about Muslims in America is shocking — but not in the way Trump and his supporters might think.
CNN then goes on to give reasons why Americans should pay no attention to the obvious, as they reported:
They are a miniscule portion of the U.S. population
It’s difficult to come by hard numbers because the U.S. Census doesn’t collect religious data. But the fear of Muslims taking over and imposing Sharia law is unfounded. By some estimates, Muslims make up less than 1% of the U.S. adult population. By 2050, their numbers will grow — to 2.1%. Of all the Muslims in America, 63% are exactly the kind Trump wants banned — immigrants.
Yes, but that’s only temporary, as Muslims multiply like rabbits. Ask other countries how their small Muslim populations are assimilating, given that Europe has over 700 “no go” zones occupied by Muslims.
CNN’s next point?
They’re better educated than most Americans
U.S. Muslims have the second-highest level of education among major religious groups in the country; Jews have the highest. And a greater proportion of them have college degrees than the general U.S. population.
If Muslims are so smart, why are they leaving their own God-forsaken countries, and why do most end up getting educated in Britain or America? Muslims have built nothing significant, since they discovered algebra. They don’t build planes, cars, or anything of significant, and utilize the ingenuity of Americans, Germans, Japanese, and just about every other nationality. Finally, if Muslims are so educated, why are most of their countries veritable crapholes?
The next supposed misconception about Muslims has me seriously puzzled:
They have more gender equality
While in many parts of the Muslim world, women are confined to second-class status, that’s not the case among American Muslims. Virtually all of them (90%) agree that women should be able to work outside the home. American Muslim women hold more college or post-graduate degrees than Muslim men. And they are more likely to work in professional fields than women from most other U.S. religious groups.
The “religion” that values women less than men, stones women, and has “honor killings” has gender equality.
