Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, November 30, 2017

The White House has defended the unverified, Islamophobic videos that Donald Trump shared as driving home an important point -- regardless of if they are real or not. "Whether it's a real video, the threat is real," Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters. "His goal is to promote strong border security and strong national security." Trump retweeted several videos from far-right extremist group Britain First on Wednesday morning. The videos purported to show violence by Muslims, such as "Muslim migrants beating up a Dutch boy on crutches." Another claimed to show an "Islamist mob" pushing a teenager off a roof and beating him to death. The videos have not been independently verified. In a least one incident, local media and police never identified the alleged attacker as Muslim. Sanders, however, maintained that the videos did not need to be verified, claiming the media was focusing on "the wrong thing."

Yes, at this point she needs this job that badly. Even her crank father and dog murdering brother can tell her it's the last real job she ever has.

I for one am glad that Trump is finally taking his daily intelligence briefing. That the briefing comes from Ann Coulter's 'Hysteria World' news feed is the problem...

When you're concerned with the truth, yes.

When you're a Republican who's concerned only with $$ and power? It's your arch nemesis, so no.

Fact1: White right wing shooters pose a greater threat to our safety than Muslims.

Fact2: The easiest way to promote peace throughout the world is to stop attacking other countries.

It's okay to lie. It's okay to falsely accuse people. It's okay to rip people off and not pay them. It's okay to sexually assault women. It's okay to be a dishonorable piece of ----. After all, elections have consequences.

This is just like the time Al Gore lied to make a point about his grandmother's medication costs, except since a Republican did it, I'd wager two-thirds of the DR right-wingers think it's okay to lie because Muslims really are evil.

There is only one group of people who can hold Trump accountable, and is the GOP Congress. I'm kind of surprised by their reluctance to Make America Great Again and restore some dignity to the White House, but what to right-wingers really know about human dignity, lying about their enemies is dignified behavior to them.

The truth is there are atrocities and crimes committed in the name of Islam every day. There are hundreds of videos on the web showing much worse, filmed by reputable news organizations or by the perpetrators themselves. Trump used a bad source, but that does not diminish the fact of Islamic violence. Like rape and terrorism in Europe or the murder of Christians in Egypt and elsewhere. Or Shea vs Sunni atrocities, something that could start a world war. You can bet that both Saudi Arabia and Iran both have nuclear weapons right now.

"The truth is there are atrocities and crimes committed in the name of Islam every day."

Then Trump shouldn't have to lie about them. But he did. And you're okay with it.

Can you expand a little on why lying about Muslims is okay? Is it because they lie about you? Is it because when it comes to lying you're just like a Muslim?

Sorry, there I go asking too many questions again!

Just tell me why it's okay to tell lies about Muslims.

Thanks.

In Trumps Fantasyland we are at war with the Muslim religion. But in fact, it is only Muslim extremists who are at war with us. They are even at war with actual Muslims as they are not extreme enough for the fanatics.

And then there is this from a Representative of our Imams in Congress:

The free world ... all of Christendom ... is at war with Islamic horror. Not one penny of American treasure should be granted to any nation who harbors these heathen animals. Not a single radicalized Islamic suspect should be granted any measure of quarter. Their intended entry to the American homeland should be summarily denied. Every conceivable measure should be engaged to hunt them down. Hunt them, identity them, and kill them. Kill them all. For the sake of all that is good and righteous. Kill them all.

#25 | Posted by donnerboy as far as I know Police Captains do not make policy. He was a LEO and is now a congressman from the 3rd district of Louisiana, not particularly a mover and shaker, but I believe he is correct, Islam is at war with us, the sooner we realize that the better off we will be.
#26 | Posted by snoofy , the video were real, the source is what you disapprove of.(maybe the blond kid wasn't being assaulted by Muslims, but plenty are).
Why does the left coddle Islam? They are not on your side. They would kill you if they had the opportunity. They hate your acceptance of homosexuals, your absence of religion, and your acceptance of women as equals. These are contrary to the Koran, but I doubt any of you have ever read that book. Two things Islam has in common with the left, an overwhelming hatred of America and a total absence of critical thinking.

Personally, I don't hate America. I do hate what it's becoming which is an authoritarian, theocratic failed state. I do however, hate you and those like you that are supporting and enabling the pedophilic anti-American movement we're seeing more of each day.

I truly hope and wish for your slow and painful demise.

They didn't kill when I lived in Saudi Arabia, not in a compound (or on a guarded base like you did when bombing Iraq), but just a kid living in an apartment building in downtown Riyadh.

So I am pretty sure you're wrong about that. They had ample opportunity to kill me. They didn't. Are you lying, or just profoundly confused?

#29 | Posted by Reagan58, already accomplishing your desire, why do you think I have the time to waste on this forum?
#32 | Posted by Sycophant Actually the supreme law, pre-Islamic, is the rule of hospitality in the middle east. That means if you are a guest, sponsored, to attack you is an attack on the host. Being an official guest of the Royals, is pretty serious. BTW, in my little burg we have a Mosque, did you see any churches wile in Saudi Arabia? That is Islamic tolerance. I was in Islamic countries for years, I did pick up some parts of the culture.

I'll give you Obama, but then most every American idolizes some President or other, and which President isn't a mass murderer.

You like hearing lies? I'm not a huge fan myself. But I bet you think that James O'Keefe guy isn't a liar or a propagandist, but rather a brave truth-teller.

The bad source diminishes Trump, and your defense of his lies diminishes you because you refuse to expect the POTUS to commit to being truthful.

The DOTARD has soiled his depends again, in front of the world; and, in so doing, has destroyed the relationship between USA and UK, simply because he is too stupid to know (or care to know) truth from fiction, or too lazy and too stupid to ask his staff to confirm the veracity of the lies he disseminates.

And you, DOCNJO, you are too stupid to be offended. You two are made for each other.
