I'd say the article is a masterpiece of deception, but that would enhance its credibility. So, while we are first told that though less than a third of Trump voters want to ban gays from the US,* we are then told in the sub-headline that the "GOP Frontrunner's Supporters Hold Beliefs Straight Out Of The 1950's," thus falsely implying that ALL Trump voters so hold. OTOH, the "story" never states what Trump's own views are on the issue. Hint: his "NY values" are completely at odds with such a position, as confirmed by his recognition that post-Obergefell
, "gay marriage is a reality," and that he favors job protection laws for gays, which is hardly surprising considering how many of us work for him at his various properties and businesses, no doubt adding to their cachet and success.
Then, in classic leftist throw-in-the-kitchen-sink fashion, all kinds of unrelated claims relating to Muslims, the Civil War, and other irrelevantia
are made, just to make sure the tar is applied as broadly as the shit is thickly. Again, look at the actual poll questions and answers closely and compare them to how they're consistently
misstated in the article. And, not only I but many Americans, gay and straight, support him on limiting Muslim immigration to the US, and a cogent argument can be made that Islam is not a faith deserving I Amdt. protection, but an ongoing, millennia-old fatwah
against Western Civilization meriting at the very least close scrutiny and control.
I'd go on, but comparing the poll, below, to the article says best what a crock this latest lefty blast against a GOPer really is. And these are the kind of people who should "inform" our electoral decisions? Fergiddaboudit!
*The actual number is only 20%
, per Question 21 of the PPP poll: http://www.publicpolicypolling.com/pdf/2015/PPP_Release_SC_21616.pdf
The numbers for many of the other questions in the poll are similarly incorrect, apparently as a result of the writer's including "undecideds" wherever convenient to support his false premises. But, perhaps even that charitable explanation forgives too much.
