ISIS Recruiting Falacies
The Left claims that Trump’s proposed temporary ban on Muslim immigration into the United States has and will be a great recruiting tool for ISIS and other Islamic extremist terrorist groups. I find this very hard to believe that this “one action” will radicalize Muslims to fight Americans more so than any other actions taken by Americans or our government. Besides, if Muslims are radicalized by Trumps proposed plan it means they were on the fence. If this is the tipping point, then it is good they expose now because it is just a matter of time before it happens. Keep in mind, Trump’s plan is merely a proposal and it would be temporary. How are Trump’s words going to radicalize Muslims more so then American bombs? How are Trumps words going to radicalize Muslims more so then online recruitment propaganda? This is fearmongering at its best. Remember, radical Muslims do not need much to be radicalized - such as a cartoon depicting Allah in a bad light. If that is all it takes, then I highly doubt Trump’s words will have much of an impact. It will not take much to radicalize these folks, they are overly sensitive and it would be just a matter of time before they are radicalized anyway. Caving to political correctness is not the solution. Terrorists are offensive people and catering to them through political correctness will cost lives. For instance, the Obama administration’s unwillingness to allow immigration officials search social media sites of Muslim immigrants is a good example. Why is Obama willing to search the social media sites of Americans for election purposes, but not profile Muslim immigrants? He does not want to be politically incorrect. The results – San Bernardino! In fact, Obama does not want to profile Muslims at all when it comes to anti-terrorism policy. Why is the Left so afraid to say “Islamic Extremists”? They are afraid to be politically incorrect. What message does this send to terrorists? It tells them that what they are doing is working. It has Americans afraid to the point they are respecting terrorists. Trump’s proposal is targeted at fixing a glaring problem in the immigration system. If someone finds it offensive so be it. American lives matter more than those of terrorists. It is a privilege to be an American and if someone is offended by the process then they can go to some other country. The liberal media and their coverage of Trump is generating these talking points. After all, it is better to talk about Trump and his plan then to talk about Obama and his failures – that is the bottom line. They are fearmongering Americans just as they did to Barry Goldwater in 1960. This is what they do, this is their mission, they are not concerned about the truth and doing what is right. It is obvious, they are concerned about ensuring that Hillary Clinton is the next president of the United States.
