woodsmen saidNYT: Over the last week, Donald Trump had used 95,000 words and there is a pattern. The specter of violence looms over much of his speech, which is infused with words like kill, destroy and fight.
For a man who speaks off the cuff, he always remembers to bring up the Islamic State’s “chopping off heads.” And he has expressed enthusiasm for torturing enemies beyond waterboarding. Last month, after several men hit a Black Lives Matter protester at one of his rallies, Mr. Trump said, “Maybe he should have been roughed up.”
First Trump I believe has no filter. And would not be appropriate for President despite the fact he is saying things that need to be said.
The reason why he resonates is because he is saying what is on alot of the public's minds. A complicit media that is shrinking over time no longer reports the news. It creates it.
So Trump is a convenient straw man for you. However what about CAIR in its news conference that blamed recent attacks on the US on foreign policy.
I believe the overwhelming consensus in the US , is that it is tired of hand wringing every time a Islamist s pops off. All we hear is how "Islam is a peaceful religion", and we worry about anti Islamic reprisal.
Guess what , since the 1993 bombing there haven't been any significant reprisal. And you can corroborate this with the record immigration from Islamic lands since we have been attacked by terrorist.
The standard that Islamic apologists would hold the United States public too is not a standard that would fly in any Islamic country. However we meet it, every time. We have no interment camps or deportations.
We have freedom of speech. And when the latest female terrorist pledged allegiance to Islam, she wants arrested and tortured as they do in Pakistan. ( torture is legal in many Islamist countries).
Therefore the opposite side deserves its air time. To call it Fascist, would be a false comparison. Fascists were nationalist that blamed a innocent minority. When you are at war with another side, rhetorical speech against your enemy isnt fascism, unless however you redefine the word.
