Here is part of why Donald Trump has gained such currency among conservatives. Some of the things he says, beyond what’s intolerant and nasty, are what everyone knows but are afraid to say for fear of being cast as haters.
Speaking to Bill O’Reilly of Fox News Thursday night, Trump pointed out the obvious inanity that is President Obama’s failure to use the term “Muslim extremism” and the flight from reality by those who simply refused to recognize that terrorism is more likely to come out of the Muslim community than, say, the Unitarians or the Rotary Club.
We need to have a discussion that includes the overwhelming number of law abiding Muslims about how to approach this. But first, as Trump states:
If we’re going to fight elements that are causing tremendous problems, at least we have to start maybe not being so politically
I hope that’s still possible.
