Trump vows end of deadly ignorance

Trump vows end of deadly ignorance: Says HE’S the man to protect Americans – including gays and Muslims – and claims Hillary would let in more Islamic terrorists, by David Martosko.

Donald Trump delivered a stinging speech about terrorism on Monday in New Hampshire, hammering Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

Clinton, he said, would negligently implement a ‘catastrophic immigration plan’ that would ‘bring vastly more radical Islamic immigrants into this country, threatening not only our society but our entire way of life.’

Trump said he wants to protect all Americans from jihadis, and faulted the Obama administration for being asleep at the switch on immigration.

Expressed strong solidarity with gays and lesbians after an armed jihadi killed more than four dozen people at a gay nightclub in Florida.

‘Ignorance is not bliss,’ he said of Clinton’s national security proposals; ‘It’s deadly. Totally deadly’. …

Donald Trump leveled a national-security flamethrower at Hillary Clinton on Tuesday, blaming her for embracing an immigration policy that would drive more Islamic radicals to stage terror attacks like the one from which Orlando, Florida is only beginning to recover. …

Trump castigated the former secretary of state for comments she made in November 2015 during a speech to the Council on Foreign Relations.

‘Let’s be clear: Islam is not our adversary,’ Clinton said then. ‘Muslims are peaceful and tolerant people and have nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism.’

‘That is Hillary Clinton,’ Trump said, hammering her for her response to the weekend’s bloodbath at a gay nightclub where more than four dozen people list their lives to a man who pledged allegiance to the ISIS terror army.

‘The days of deadly ignorance will end, and they will end soon’ if he is elected president, Trump pledged.

Clinton’s response on Monday was equal parts gun control and a motherly embrace of America’s gays and lesbians.

‘She says the solution is to ban guns. They tried that in France,’ Trump poked, referring to last year’s terror attacks in Paris. ‘One hundred thirty people were brutally murdered by Islamic terrorists in cold blood,’ he said.

‘Her plan is to disarm law-abiding Americans, abolish the Second Amendment and leave only terrorists … with guns.’

‘She wants to take away Americans’ guns and then admit the very people who want to slaughter us,’ Trump boomed, reading from a teleprompter. He pledged to meet with the National Rifle Association, the powerful lobby that has endorsed him, to ‘discuss how to make sure Americans have the means to protect themselves in this age of terror.’ …

And doubling down on identity groups that cleave to Clinton’s side, he emphasized that ‘radical Islam is anti-woman, anti-gay and anti-American.’

‘I refuse to allow America to become a place where gay people, Christian people, Jewish people are targets of persecution and intimidation by radical Islamic preachers of hate and violence.’

The studied cluelessness of the PC left is losing them credibility in face of the continued onslaught by their latest mascots, the Muslims. This time the victims weren’t the cultural enemies of the PC crowd, but another of their allied groups, the LBGT — so this is going to cost the PC crowd support. That Trump is able to credibly promise that he would be better for the LGBT is very telling, possibly leading to a fracture in the PC coalition:

Trump, in fact, claimed that he would be a better and more effective advocate than Clinton for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender Americans.

‘Hillary Clinton can never pretend to be a friend of the gay community,’ he said, while supporting immigration policies that bring along with them the threat of more jihadi immigrants.

‘She can’t have it both ways,’ he said. ‘She can’t claim to be supportive of these communities while [increasing] the number of people who want to oppress these communities.’ …

They have put political correctness above common sense, above your safety, and above all else. I refuse to be politically correct.
