Since the last article that was posted on SafaiePost, Mr. Trump has made another outrageous and even more divisive and dangerous comment. Mr. Trump would like to ban entries to any and all Moslems coming to the United States. He even wants the US borne Moslems when leaving the country for a visit to anywhere to be stopped from coming back. How sadistic could one be to ban one from coming back home?
The disappointing and surprising thing is that many Republicans support Mr. Trump’s new declaration and in fact his support went up among his base in the latest poll. Of course, it was only one poll taken over the phone, but still it is concerning.
Many of the Republican candidates rightly so, have made statements against what Mr. Trump has declared. In fact one of the Republican members of the House of representative from Florida, Rep. David Jolly, on the floor of the House has asked Mr. Trump to step down as he is not qualified to become the President of the United States of America.
Adolf Hitler used the democracy in Germany to gain power and once he became the leader, he then became one of the most vicious and tyrant leader in the 20th Century causing millions of innocent Jews to be killed and brought the entire world into an unnecessary war causing around 100 million people to die in World War II with the Soviet Union bearing the most losses with over 20 million dead.
The amazing thing is that when Mr. Trump was interviewed and was asked that people are comparing him to Hitler, he did not take offense and did not isolate himself from that comparison. It seems he does not mind to become another Hitler, but this one would be against the Moslems as Hitler was against the Jews.
“First he blamed the Mexicans for America’s ills, then he attacked reporters, then he attacked women by making very insulting comments about Ms. Megan Kelly, Fox News anchor woman and Ms. Carly Fiorina, Republican candidate for President. Then he made comments about American Blacks.”
Mr. Trump’s views are becoming more restrictive and harsher by the day. First he blamed the Mexicans for America’s ills, then he attacked reporters, then he attacked women by making very insulting comments about Ms. Megan Kelly, Fox News anchor woman and Ms. Carly Fiorina, Republican candidate for President. Then he made comments about American Blacks. Now he is focusing on Moslems which seem to be a very convenient group to capture the Republican base and attention.
Although it is great that the other many of Republican Candidates immediately denounced what Mr. Trump has proposed about banning Moslems, but that is not enough. If the Republicans want to capture the White House and control the Congress, they must do better than that. They must make sure that Mr. Trump is soundly defeated and or withdraw from the candidacy. If Mr. Trump wins the Republican nomination, Republicans will most likely, if not definitely lose the general election and the White House and most likely lose the control of the Congress. That is because there are more democrats and independents in the US than Republicans. Even many Republicans would not vote for Mr. Trump in the general election.
Mr. Trump’s comments are inciting violence. In city of Philadelphia a pig’s head was thrown into a local Mosque. Moslem women with Hijab are being harassed in some part of the countries. Threatening phone calls and e/mails being sent to the Mosques. It only take one individual to go to any Mosque during Friday pray with a gun and start shooting. We will then have another mass shooting on our hand and a fantastic propaganda for ISIS to recruit more people and start planning more attacks in the west and the United States. All because of Mr. Trump’s stupidity and reckless comments and his disregard for human life.
ISIS and the radical Moslem groups are creation of the West and the US by invading Afghanistan, Iraq and attacking Libya, Syria, and Somalia. Also supporting the most backward regime in the world, the Al Saud family in Saudi Arabia where many fanatics are bread and then exported such as Al-Qaeda and Osama Bin-Laden. Even former Prime Minister of Britain, Mr. Tony Blair, admitted to invasion of Iraq was the reason for ISIS resurrection. We are going through sensitive times and we must be careful in what we say and what we do, in particular the leaders and the leader to be. A good leader promotes peace and serenity and a bad leader promotes violence, division, Mr. Trump has resorted to the latter. It is very easy to incite violence and chaos, but very difficult to bring peace and harmony and that is what a good leader would be and should be. One wonders who Mr. Trump’s advisor is, if any, and whether he ever listens to his advisor(s). Perhaps Mr. Trump’s advisor is the one that Mr. Trump sees in the mirror every day.
