Prominent Atheist CLOBBERS Trump With Incredibly Damning Questions (VIDEO)
by SARAH –
If there’s one thing that has been the centerpiece of Donald Trump’s campaign, it’s been his thinly veiled obvious and bombastic racism. He doesn’t even try to hide it. In fact, it’s really the only thing he’s running on in his campaign that he’s been most clear about. Trump certainly hasn’t been clear about any policy platforms, other than that they will be “great” and the “best ever” to “make America great again.” And unfortunately, there are people in this nation dumb enough to fall for his schtick, because apparently their brains don’t grasp critical thinking whatsoever.
Blasting Trump’s not so thinly veiled racism, is none other than The Friendly Atheist founder Hemant Mehta. He took to his YouTube account and pointed out some things that Trump doesn’t want to admit. Trump isn’t against Muslims, per se, or Mexicans, he’s against brown people. After all, how does Trump plan on stopping “all Muslims” from entering the United States. Is he going to have a religious test? Or is there a more obvious way of figuring it out. Say, brown skin. He’s demonizing anyone with brown skin, whether it be Mexican or Muslim, or anyone that may look ‘Latino’ or ‘Muslim,’ and if that’s not racism, what the hell is? It’s also just blatant Islamophobia, throwing an entire religion under the bus because of extremists.
Here’s the transcript of Mehta’s questions for Trump from his YouTube channel:
“Donald Trump said a while ago that he wants to ban Muslims from entering the country. And I just have a few questions because I don’t get how exactly that would work…
How do you know who’s a Muslim and who’s not?
Is Muslim just code for brown people? Am I a Muslim? He totally thinks I’m a Muslim.
Can you tell the difference between Muslims, Sikhs, Hindus, Baha’is, and brown atheists?
What’s to prevent Muslims from lying on their immigration forms?
How exactly do you build a wall around an ideology instead of a border?
Do you realize that this sort of proposal strengthens, not destroys, groups like ISIS? Because if we’re alienating Muslims, it’s that much easier for our enemies to convince them they’re looking out for the best interests of Muslims?
Do you understand that some people who immigrate from Middle Eastern nations aren’t Muslim?
If you’re worried about terrorism, do you understand that more people have died at the hands of right-wing extremists over the past decade than Muslim terrorists? Seriously. There’s a link in the description.
In a Republican field with Mike Huckabee, Ted Cruz, and Ben Carson, how extreme do you have to be to be known as the Bigoted One?
How little do you care about your fellow Americans that you’re willing to throw entire groups of them under the bus to further your own campaign?
How big does a minority have to get before you think twice about calling them a horrible name?
What would your reaction be if Hillary Clinton said the same thing about Christian immigrants following the Planned Parenthood shooting?
Which non-white, Christian group will you want to ban next?
Do you realize how much other countries are making fun of us?
How has the Republican Party not disavowed you entirely?”
Mehta is exactly right. How bad do you have to be to be the one called out as the racist in the GOP presidential race? What’s worse is the fact that Trump seems to notice the racism working and helping him gain support among racist America, so he’s doubling down on every racist thing that comes out of his mouth. The more racist and extreme his is, the better he does in the polls.
Trump’s words, though, have consequences. Very real consequences. Because as he uses racism and Islamophobia to help himself at the polls, the very religion he speaks against can aid extremists in using his words in their quest to recruit against the United States. You also can’t build a wall around an ideology, it’s actually impossible, and trying to pretend you can by saying he’ll ban all Muslims only strengthens the chance for further spread of an extremist ideology that wants there to be war.
The fact that the Republican party hasn’t completely disavowed Trump speaks volumes. It’s a sad state of affairs that one of the most prominent parties in the United States seems to not only be condoning racism and Islamophobia, but embracing it full-on.
