Talk about bullshit from the press! The prestigious Racine Journal Times just delivered another editorial of complicity with our criminal government of how YOU are supposed to feel. We have highlighted "their" rational.
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has been nonstop making headlines for his call to ban all Muslims from entering the United States until the nation’s leaders can “figure out what is going on.”
His views are concerning, but with that said it’s understandable why many Americans are supporting Trump’s extreme views.
They are mad.And they are scared because they don’t see what is being done to keep the nation safe.
On Nov. 13, 130 people died in France in a terrorist attack that rocked the nation. The attack was later determined to be connected to Islamic State terrorist group.
Then our own country was hit when a radicalized husband and wife killed 14 people in San Bernardino, Calif.
President Barack Obama addressed the nation on national television after that attack, hoping to help calm the nation.
Unfortunately, his remarks fell short of addressing the real national security problems our nation and the world are facing.
To fill in the gap, the very next day Trump declared that Muslims should be banned from entering the United States at least temporally.
A Bloomberg Politics Poll showed 64 percent of likely Republican voters and 35 percent of overall voters supported Trump’s opinion on Muslims.
Again, it’s because people are scared.
Even Hillary Clinton is recognizing the nation’s intense fear.
In an Iowa town hall she told voters, “It’s OK, it’s OK to be afraid,” she is quoted saying in The New York Times. “When bad things happen, it does cause anxiety and fear … but then you pull yourself together and, especially, if you want to be a leader of our country, and you say: ‘OK, what are we going to do about it? How are we going to be prepared?’ ”
So far we haven’t heard a real answer from Clinton or others about what they are going to do to keep America safe.
Trump is wrong to advocate banning all Muslims from entering the United States. But unless someone else can come up with a concrete plan to keep the nation safe, it’s no wonder that people are rallying behind Trump.
