Donald Trump and Muslim immigration: Racism or common sense?

Rebel Staff
 

Liberals (and some Republicans) are going crazy over Trump's statement about Muslim immigration. But have they actually read it? I'll read you the whole thing.

Trump's statement mentions a Pew poll we've told you about at The Rebel, about the 31% of Syrian refugees who support ISIS, and hold other disturbing opinions about Jews and gays.

After hearing the whole statement, what do you think?

At The Rebel, we've called for a pause in Muslim immigration here in Canada. To learn more and SIGN THE PETITION, visit RefugeePause.ca

 

My guest Joel Pollak of Breitbart.com talks about Trump's policy proposal from an America conservative's perspective. Is it even constitutional? Is Trump a "fascist" as his critics claim?

Pollak says keeping out Muslims (or anyone else) is, in fact, constitutional. However, he's not convinced that Trump is the right person to convey these and other important ideas to voters.

 

Then Faith Goldy joins me to reveal some hints about her new show with The Rebel! The program, On The Hunt, starts TOMORROW, December 10, at 9 pm ET/7 pm MT and will air every Thursday.

Faith explains that she successfully quit smoking using e-cigarettes, so one of her first topics will be the nanny state's war on vaping (with a special guest.)

Then she'll have a gun rights story PLUS an update on The Voices of the Nations, who are fighting for their religious rights with Toronto bureaucrats.

Finally, on tonight's "Incoming" segment, a viewer writes about his recent conversation with Preston Manning -- who had something to say about me!

If you want to have your say, I give out all my contact information at the end of each show, and you can also comment below.

Having lots of peaceful muslims is not a problem. But having just one radical muslim terrorist killing in the name is islam is a bad thing.

The Dub commented 1 day ago, ‘just some clarification for the SJW liberals: Cautioning against radicalized religious aggression is not a race issue; it is an ideological issue. Besides, Syrians, like all other middle easterners, are CAUCASIANS. It isn’t about keeping different races out of N. America, it is about common sense and safety. And on this point, I agree with Trump".
I agree that it’s just about common sense. Our family runs a business and I liken allowing masses of Muslims to immigrate to Canada, to hiring several members of a competitor’s family to work for us. We know that the tenets of Islam are: to spread it worldwide by any means necessary, that Sharia law be established worldwide, that Jews are despicable, that homosexuality should be punishable by death, that adulterers should be stoned, that apostates should be killed, that Christians and Jews must pay the jizya, or head tax, that’s it’s OK for a Muslim to use taqiya, meaning lies to cover up for it’s religion and although Muslims and their supporters keep telling us that Islam is the religion of peace, ask yourself, “Does that make sense when Muslims are fighting someone somewhere, in China, India, Thailand, Pakistan, Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, the Philippines, Africa, Europe and the USA?” That religion of peace quote that they’re so happy to use has been taken out of context.
So, why would we invite Muslims here? Most likely because we don’t take what we know seriously. It’s only very recently that anyone has been able to speak openly against Islam. Previously, those who did so, were called racist, bigoted Islamaphobes. Ayaan Hiirsi Ali, a Muslim woman who left Islam, then spoke out against it, has to travel with armed guards for protection, Theo Van Gogh who made an anti-Muslim film with her has been stabbed to death, Douglas Murray who is part of a UK think tank about social cohesion and who criticizes Islam now is unable to let people know where he’ll be speaking. As he said on his Twitter account this week, “It’s for security reasons.” Do we really think that people who practice this ‘religion of peace’ will make Canada a better place?

The right wing controlled media does not want you to find out that 95% of mass shootings and other attacks have nothing to do with Muslims at all.

Yannie Znayew, You say that if Muslims living here weren’t peaceful, the rest of the country would have been overrun eons ago. Most Muslim immigration has taken place in the last 5 years (not eons ago) and much of it from Pakistan and Iran, countries where Sharia law applies either partly or fully. You might want to read this piece by Canadian Muslim, Raheel Raza where she tells of harassment of other students by Muslim students at York University who are attempting to force them to wear the hijab or attend prayer services. Or that Pakistani Muslims who come here, adopt Arab dress. She says that the headscarf is a political statement. Tarek Fatah, another Muslim who speaks out against what’s happening here, says that the headscarf is just the tip of the iceberg. It’s letting us know that they’re here and they’re different.
Are you trying to tell me that Raheel Raza and Tarek Fatah are paranoid? You should take some time to investigate the subject more fully before you speak.

There are more than a million Muslims living in Canada right now, almost ten times the size of the Canadian Armed Forces. Almost all of them are pretty peaceful. If they weren’t, the rest of the country would have been overrun eons ago. The petty paranoia on this page makes me sick and absolutely ashamed to be a Canadian, so shut up already!

Everybody says this – but you cannot win a war fighting the evil of islam if you have it running around freely in your back yard.

It has to be dealt with at home first.

Round them up and send them packing.

What happened to those living in the desert who are not Islamic is far worse – there is no islamic citizen of any country – they are islamic first – unless there is a reason to declare that citizenship – usually money.

Deport them all.

Then and only then can you successfully fight them in the desert.

The greatest thing that I like about the Donald is that he is exposing the MSM for what their bias and attack motives really are.
Many independents and marginal Dem voters are getting a perspective they never questioned before, but now do.

Get elected on the platform of stopping middle-east immigration … THEN start interning and deporting who’s already there. No mercy, no holds barred. It’s the ONLY way to be safe.

From the man who formed my early conservative ideals:

How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries, improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement, the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. Individual Muslims may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome.

I think that is a paraphrase of Churchill, no? LOL. Essentially he called the Muslim world confiscatory, backward and needlessly violent. However he also, like most at the time, saw them as so backward, he didn’t see them as a great threat. He could never have imagined the level of Western self-hatred and political correctness that puts us at risk now. Had we had the same sentiments in WWII as we do now, we could never have conducted that war to win.
commented 2015-12-10 14:14:10 -0500
As was Winston Churchill right, when he said, “Muslims are the scum of the earth” So is Donald Trump also right, “Stop immigration of Muslims, until we find out what the hell is going on”.

The MSM went into frenzy mode, attempting to knock trump down. They only quoted part of what Trump said, leaving out the “Until we find out what the hell is going on”.

All they succeeded in doing was to give Trump more publicity.

Canada needs a Donald Trump. All we have is a lame brained idiot who is misleading us into oblivion.

Trumps statement about the UK and it’s No Go zones is also correct but a little misleading. The No Go zones are not areas that none Muslims are forbidden to enter, rather they are areas that if you do enter them, the chances of exiting them in one piece are very slim. This due to the Muslim hate gangs that infest these areas.

The online petition to bar Trump from Entering the UK was started by Muslims and has been signed by around 40,000 people at this point. If one could cancel all the Muslim signers, the total would be around 3,000.

Trumps reply, that the UK has some embarrassing things going on, that they wish to hide, is also correct.

Trudeau has subjected Canada to an invasion of untold numbers of Migrants, without even having a debate in Parliament. We need to demand a public Referendum on this matter.

Edward Jobin said," I get the feeling the government is more obsessed with it’s own perception than the welfare of our nation."

That is the truth of it. Its moral vanity, coupled with a misguided answer to a perceived, population/employment/union/tax base problem. When all our gov. has to do, is stop filling their own pockets, put the unions on a leash, train and employ Canadians and encourage responsible immigration from cultures compatible with ours. As far as refugees are concerned, a safe haven here should be temporary, and numbers held in check.

This is an instance where Justin’s call for support with supplies of winter clothing, food etc. would seem an appropriate response. Support the refugees in camps over there. Keep them guarded and safe. Find a way to force the hand of countries like Jordan and Saudi Arabia to take them in. Our taking in a handful here and there, serves little to ease the problem for them and does a lot to put us in harms way.

Don’t know what Jay is talking about. Is he threatening Jews? Indeed, Jews will be threatened but not by some imaginary white supremacist, but by radical Jihadis, and we want to let more in. I also hate the demeaning of the word “racist”. To be a racist you have to dislike a race. Muslims are not a race.

Jay Kelly said: “We should make no mistake. The hateful comments about Muslims are going to be applied to Jews.
This website is intended to stir up antagonism against foreigners and those who look weird. The Jews of Canada will be the ones who pay the price”. Jay what you are saying could be construed as Islamophobic. It suggests that Muslims cannot read something they dislike without reacting against the Jews. Do you really believe that? Because you do not paint Muslims as being very tolerant or respectful of free speech if it is not in their favor. I do not believe all Muslims are hateful or want tot kill us however during a time of conflict, coming from a war zone I know of no simple litmus test that ensures the safety of our citizens considering the feeble measures our government seem to be making at screen refugees. I get the feeling the government is more obsessed with it’s own perception than the welfare of our nation.

It’s not a race we’re prejudiced against, it’s a religion.

The left openly attack religion, mainly Christianity, delivering blows from every angle. Yet when the subject of discussion is Islam, all bets are off, don’t you dare say a damn thing or you’re “racist” we’re told. It would seem that a bunch of university-educated social justice warriors either don’t understand the terms they devote so much study toward, OR (and more likely), they are intentionally defining “racism” so incorrectly as a means of stifling free-speech and debate.

Be clear with these people, if Arabs and Africans wanna come here, speak English, let “kaffirs” date their daughters, won’t force their daughters to wear bags on their heads… Well… Then welcome to Canada. Otherwise, stay in your goddamn desert, Trump is absolutely right.

I’m gonna get a “Trump 2016” sticker for my vehicle, because even though it has little to do with this country, there sure are a bunch of raving leftists in Canadian media devoting pages upon pages to this guy. It must be relevant if they say so. I choose Trump’s ideas, not the stale Karl Marx garbage pushed by the media and universities here.

Islam is not a race. It is a supremacist, intolerant, racist, misogynist, homophobic, barbaric political system that seeks to control all aspects of life including religious observance.©

Fact, logic, reason , common sense and moral absolutes are in short supply these days, in the ‘government’ and their collusionist cohorts, the Media Party, it’s pretty much non-existent!
Fortunately, they are all to be found in plentiful supply at THEREBEL

Mark Steyn on Trump, “my view of Trump is that he conducts politics as a business. In business, you open negotiations by saying you want $10 million and the freehold to the waterfront property; you settle for $8 million and the leasehold. Politics is the opposite. Your opening bid is to ask for four per cent of what you really want. Trump thinks Americans would prefer business-style negotiation to politics-style negotiation.”

Tony Kott said " The real reason the left and republican fascists who pretend they are conservative, are piling up on Trump is that they can see that he will upset the taxpayer funded piggy trough that they have been gorging on for the past 5 decades may be coming to an end if he is elected as President". That is the real crux of the matter". Just like in Canada there were many issues the public sided with Harper on but it was the unions lust for their entitlements who won the day for Trudeau and every and any issue was used as a battering ram to try and smear Harper.

Terrorism isn’t a perceived threat, its a real one. And it is deadly. And therefore excercising the most basic of human traits "self preservation and survival " can hardly be called racist.

Ezra, thank you for sharing Donald Trump’s statement with us in its entirety while the mainstream media won’t, in spite of the extensive coverage they give to the topic as part of their shallow and feeble attempt to discredit him.
Unlike that crazy, out of control, hot-headed, motor-mouth Obama, who immediately rationalizes Islamic terrorist attacks as “violence in the workplace” and other such nonsense, the even-keeled Trump will at least wait until facts are in before offering an appropriate course of action.
Obama should disqualify himself from the office as President.
