On Obama, Islam, Trump, and Carson

Posted by Troy on 22nd September 2015 in Current Events, Political

Trump and Carson have fallen off the cliff.  One dared not correct someone who called Obama a Muslim, and the other said he wouldn’t advocate for a Muslim for President.

I think Trump had an excellent retort:  Do you think Obama would defend me if someone said something bad about me?

Hell no.  Of course not.  But I have another issue…so…is being a Muslim a bad thing?  Sounds that way.  If being Muslim isn’t bad, then why would Trump be inclined to correct the man?  The only way this criticism holds any water is if being Muslim is a bad thing.  If the man had said, “Obama is a child molester,” then maybe Trump should say something to correct a maliciously false critique.  Otherwise, why should Trump involve himself?  By now, one believes that Obama is or is not a Muslim.  Nothing will convince that man otherwise.

Then there’s Carson.  He said he wouldn’t advocate a Muslim for President because Islam is inconsistent with American values.  Everyone went nuts.  So…what is consistent with American values?  A woman having to provide 6 eye witnesses to prove rape?  Stoning for adultery?  Stoning for being gay?  Fill in the damn blank on anything related to women?  Their pretty narrow view on Freedom of Speech?  Shall we continue?  Not to mention the fact that we keep getting heavily involved in the Middle East.  Let’s just put that out there.  Their religion requires that they advance Shariah Law.  And their religion also allows them to lie in order to advance Shariah.  Honestly…based on these two facts, how could anyone in their right mind ever vote for a Muslim for President unless they, themselves, were Muslim?  You can’t even judge such an individual on their words or actions because their religion gives one over-riding rule: Advance Shariah by any means possible.  Could it not be that they acted and spoke of tolerance and of Americana just to gain such a position of power to fundamentally transform America?  Just saying.

Ya know what?  The Democrats should run a Muslim.  That’ll show us.  The first Muslim President.  But I guess they prefer words over actions.  Words are cheap and easy, aren’t they?

Carson said he would not advocate a Muslim President.  He didn’t even say that he would ask others NOT to support a Muslim President.  He never said anything regarding if a Muslim COULD run.  Of COURSE a Muslim is ELIGIBLE to run.  Carson just thinks that a Muslim for President would be a mistake.  Anyone being intellectually honest would agree.  Anyone that disagrees is either Muslim themselves or so wrapped up in their worship of tolerance they are not being logical or honest with themselves…or are ignorant on the Koran.  I guess that’s another possibility.  Pick it up and give it a read.  It’ll give you a new perspective on Islam other than what the media is advocating.

Long Live the Constitution!
