    Well I would hope that if up to 25% of Christians supported violence against the US I certainly hope he would say exactly that. Of course it is a faulty hypothetical (If bullfrogs had wings they wouldn't bump their asses when they jumped).

I started going all with banning Muslims and making them wear a big M on their shirts...but the crazier I got, the more you people loved it...what is wrong with you?

    It is not hard now to see how things like Japanese internment camps happened in WWII...you all are ready to do it all over again with Muslims now. You're all insane! I'm dropping out...I wouldn't be leader of this band of misfits for all the money in the world. I'm out, I support my good friend Hillary." ~The Real Donald Trump
    Yes, this figment of your imagination is a common fantasy for Jeb and Hillary voters and Millionaire AIPAC lobbyists the land over.

    Fortunately, for the rest of us, it's not grounded in reality.

    Oh...Jesus...PYB flashbacks...there is a very long thread you can go read to find out my thoughts on this...

    What I will say is that Trump hasn't said he wants to lock up Muslims living in the country...he doesn't want to ban Muslim citizens who leave the country, then return, because they are already citizens. So, no, this does not remotely relate to the internment camps.

    You seem to be having trouble with analogies. SJ's is pretty well on point and cogent.

    Historically it the same kind of religious bigotry that ended up with millions of people in ovens, a couple of generations ago. If you read the comments of his supporters, online and on talk radio, he would have no trouble finding people to run those ovens. Trump k just picked a different set of victims

    Did you see the wack-job source for that number?

    There is no doublespeak..

    Listen, I am by no means a Trump supporter. I just think that people are blowing things out of proportion, just as they did when claiming that Obama was a socialist who was going to take away our freedoms. The term "bigotry" is thrown around far too easily these days. Instead of people focusing on the message, they are being told to fear him.
