|Boo! It's a Syrian orphan... And he's foamin' at the mouth!|
In our continuing never-ending report on just how fear-mongery the right wing Republicans have gotten lately we bring yet another installment of the GOP soiling themselves because Muslims.
Example: During a campaign stop in Alabama on Thursday, Dr. Ben Carson, who is currently polling in second place for the Republican nomination for president told reporters that Syrian refugees are just like “rabid dogs” saying…
“For instance, you know, if there is a rabid dog running around your neighborhood, you’re probably not going to assume something good about that dog, and you’re probably gonna put your children out of the way. Doesn’t mean that you hate all dogs by any stretch of the imagination.
By the same token, we have to have in place screening mechanisms that allow us to determine who the mad dogs are, quite frankly. Who are the people who wanna come in here and hurt us and wanna destroy us? Until we know how to do that, just like it would be foolish to put your child out in the neighborhood knowing that that was going on, it’s foolish for us to accept people if we cannot have the appropriate type of screening.”
He then went on to tell reporters that the threat from ISIS was greater than the threat from Al Qaeda in 2001 because flying planes into buildings “didn’t require a great deal of sophistication” saying…
“Being responsible for the September 11 attacks, what happened right there really didn’t require a great deal of sophistication because we were not paying attention. We were not coordinating our efforts so you didn’t have to be all that great. You had to be able to fly some planes,”
Yes indeed, Dr. Ben says that 9/11 wasn't a This has been yet another example of the GOP and right wing conservatives fear mongering and cowardice.
