Trump speaks truth of what voters really thinking

By: Brennan Kohls

Since he entered the election, Donald Trump seems like he says a remark every week that manages to make people mad and grab the headlines, but his numbers continue to rise. His latest being the banning of all Muslim immigration to the United States, causing a huge uproar from the liberal left and some outrage from the right.

Tashfeen Malik and her husband Syed Farook shot up the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino, Calif., killing 14, and wounding 21, causing debates ranging from gun control, to our country’s vetting process, and ultimately what we need to do to prevent future terrorist attacks.

After the attacks, Trump stated that he wants a “total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on.” The statement, as expected, brought about the usual name calling from the “tolerant” Democrats.

A tweet from Martin O’Malley, a Democrat presidential candidate, said this: “.@RealDonaldTrump removes all doubt: he is running for President as a fascist demagogue.” Also in a tweet, Democrat presidential frontrunner, Hillary Clinton said: “This is reprehensible, prejudiced and divisive. @RealDonaldTrump, you don’t get it. This makes us less safe.”  Even the Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, a Republican, condemned Trump’s statements as, “not what this country stands for.”

First let’s get his statement straight, he wants to stop all Muslim immigration TO the United States. He’s not banning Islam in the United States. This is not a violation of the First Amendment because contrary to popular belief of Democrats, the Constitution only applies to American citizens.

Second, it’s obvious that our vetting process is severely flawed because we let a Muslim woman slip through the cracks when she was very outspoken on social media against the United States. She and her husband killed 14 people. It’s completely absurd that anyone could think that our government could thoroughly vet every single Muslim immigrant coming from terrorist ridden areas.

The barring of Muslims is not because Trump hates Muslims; he’s not “Islamophobic” as most liberals want you to believe. “This is not about religion. This is about national security,” said Trump in an interview with Fox News.

This is not the first time that certain groups of people have been barred from entering the United States. In World War II, Franklin Roosevelt, a Democrat, banned all immigration coming from Germany, Italy and Japan. He also put Japanese that lived in America in internment camps. In 1979, Jimmy Carter, also a Democrat president, signed an executive order allowing the government to make 50,000 Iranian students living in the United States report to an immigration office and put strict policies in place, basically barring Iranians from the United States, so this is not the first time we’ve ever heard about banning a specific group of people.

Lastly, Democrats keep saying that banning Muslims only helps “recruit and instigate” further terror attacks from ISIS and other groups. How does keeping potential terrorists from entering the United States cause a boost in terror attacks? Democrats are more worried about being politically correct than protecting American citizens.

“I’m not looking to be politically correct. I’m doing this to do the right thing,” Trump said in an interview with CNN.

After most politicians say something that makes people mad, they apologize, and they refuse to do interviews, but Trump takes it head on. If a network asks him for an interview, he does one. He doesn’t care what the mainstream media think about him. He actually has a spine, something we haven’t seen in a political race in a long time. We cannot expect to win the war against radical Islamic terrorism if our leaders insist on being politically correct.

After every inflammatory remark he makes, Trump’s numbers rise. To me, and all other Trump supporters, Donald Trump is that voice in our head that says what we’re all thinking. Americans are sick and tired of political correctness and trying not to offend people. We need action, not talk.
