Anti-Muslim rhetoric has found itself entering mainstream political talk again after Republican nominee Donald Trump insulted the parents of slain American Muslim soldier Humayun Khan, whose parents had given an anti-Trump speech at the Democratic National Convention. As Khan was killed-in-action during the Iraq War, Trump’s comments have come under scorn from many politicians on the Right.
Now, however, Trump is continuing his train of thought by bringing up his original intentions to ban Muslims from immigrating into the country. Speaking at another political rally, Trump went a step further, stating that, had the White House followed his ideas in 2000, there wouldn’t have been a 9/11:
“Those people that knocked down the World Trade Center most likely, under the Trump policy, wouldn’t have been here to knock down the World Trade Center.”
What’s interesting is that Trump, in typical moron fashion, seems to have forgotten that it was the Republican Bush Administration that was responsible for letting the September 11 attacks occur, not a Democratic one. Thus, Trump has reignited his anti-Bush rhetoric from the primary by bringing up their failures to the American public.
Of course, Trump was quick enough to throw in his trademark “Clinton was responsible for ISIS” statement to prevent his sheep from noticing his mistake.
