Vote Trump for a Pure America!

This exchange occurred yesterday at a Donald Trump rally in New Hampshire. I call the man asking the question a “supporter” because he was wearing a Trump T-shirt.

    SUPPORTER: We have a problem in this country. It’s called Muslims. Our current president is one. We know he’s not even an American.
    TRUMP: (chuckling) We need this question. This is the first question.
    SUPPORTER: Anyway, we have training camps growing where they want to kill us. That’s my question: When can we get rid of them?
    TRUMP: We’re going to be looking at a lot of different things. You know, a lot of people are saying that, and a lot of people are saying that bad things are happening. We’re going to be looking at that and many other things.

So now, not only is Trump on record for wanting to deport an estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants in less than two years (police raids, families torn apart, train rides to the border) — apparently he is “going to be looking at” “getting rid of” Muslims (or imaginary Muslim terrorist training camps) as well.

The one good thing about getting this kind of hate speech out in the open, is that it exposes the haters for what they are — and I remain convinced that they are so far from the views of the majority of the American people, that they are only setting themselves up for defeat in the 2016 elections if they continue to talk this way. But meanwhile we have to live with their paranoid fantasies, and I worry about the kinds of things people are capable of when their emotions are on edge!

Here’s the report the quote came from.
