Mosquerade

Oh, great. It’s time for the “Things Donald Trump Will Look At And What A Great Thing He Will Do To Fix It” game:

Donald Trump went on Fox Business Wednesday and said he would emulate the British government and not only revoke passports but close mosques in the United States in order to fight the Islamic State.

Stuart Varney: “Now, in the UK, in Britain, they’ve obviously got a terror problem. They’ve got a lot of youngsters going over to fight for ISIS, about — just under 1,000 are going over there, and they’ve got a whole new series of proposals to deal with this, including withdrawal of passports from some of these people who’ve gone over just to fight-“

Trump: “Absolutely. Good, good.”

Varney: “…and closing some mosques. Would you do the same thing in America?”

Trump: “I would do that. Absolutely, I think it’s great.”

 Varney: “Can you do it? Can you close a mosque? We do have religious freedom.”

Trump: “Well, I don’t know. I mean, I haven’t heard about the closing of the mosque. It depends, if the mosque is, you know, loaded for bear, I don’t know. You’re going to have to certainly look at it. But I can tell you one thing ,if somebody goes over and they want to fight for ISIS, they wouldn’t be coming back.”

No shit, Donald. I’m pretty sure that anyone we find who has fought with ISIS or any other terrorist group is going to see himself or herself not treated well upon their return. What’s a “loaded for bear” mosque? Would anyone like to get back to me as to what that means?

I loved how he backtracked on this “great” idea after Varney brought up freedom of religion. But I’m willing to let that slide-he got stopped in medias res and muddied the water. That’s a whole lot more than I can say for the person breathing down his neck in this crazy race.

Ben Carson never gets put back on his heels like this.

That’s primarily because he doesn’t have a leg to stand on.

About The Head Seminarian

I might be the nicest person you'll ever meet, but if you don't believe me, that is because I hate you. I went to war, I went to father, I came, I saw, and it is a mess. I wouldn't have it any other way. Shitty people amuse me, people who act like human volcanoes fascinate me like fine art. Life is beautiful, and it is under attack in a manner heretofore unseen in history. I came to remind you of this, not make it worse. I might be writing a blog. Yes, that's all I am doing, now that I think about it. If you have a bad memory, you will forget this. Even I forget sometimes, so we're cool.
