    I went to a Trump rally in my hijab.

    The most provocative act that I encountered occurred towards the beginning of my two-hour wait: a vendor noticed me and immediately came down to my section of the line where he loudly announced that he was selling “Bomb The Hell Out Of Isis” T-shirts (apparently, the desire to kill people is considered trendy fashion at a Trump rally). He looked directly at me to see how I would react; I looked back at him, shook my head, smiled and read my Qur’an as I patiently waited for someone to engage me in civil conversation.

    What differentiates me from many of the Trump supporters I met this weekend is that their concerns for our future have led to an overwhelming need to see all of our problems as someone else’s fault.

    To Trump and his supporters, Asian countries have “dumped” their goods in America and almost bankrupted our country by causing our trade deficit; Mexico won’t keep “illegals” (who are the “source” for Americans’ drugs) on their side of the border; and, of course, Muslims have “always” been fighting us, and come from countries populated by ingrates who are unwilling to pay for the wars that we started on “their” behalf.

    Yes, what I did could have been dangerous: the Trump campaign, like many movements, has been dogged by its share of mischief makers. The thugs and bullies who have hurt other dissenters are a small, but very real, part of the ultra-nationalism that vague, implausible rhetoric like Trump’s attracts.

    But it was worth the risk to me to show them that their insecurities about Muslims were unfounded.
    It was worth it to humanize Muslims for them.

    Great point. She wasn't wearing a bomb that day, which proves that no Muslims are terrorists :facepalm:

    I hope President Trump has the planes ready on day one to ship these disgusting savages back to the hellholes they came from

    All this fear mongering over implied threats of "danger" and what's the worst thing that happened to her? Someone attempted to sell a t-shirt in her vicinity. Oh, the humanity. I pray she's not scarred for life. :rolleyes:

    So the douchebags at The Guardian get an opportunity to spread some more of their propaganda. Good for them. Funny how it's completely lost on them that Trump rallies are a thousand times safer than your local community pool in Germany.

    When the greatest generation faced the Quislings and the American Bund there was initial indifference but then people beat the shit out of them.

    Now we have the Muslim form in the group of people irregardless of intention will cause us to walk on eggshells to avoid being called racist.

    We are at war with radical Islam just as we were at war with Germans. And there is simply nothing racist with the hope that we crush every savage Muslim in the same exact way the Americans in WW2 crushed the fascists.

    The question is do we want to follow the example of our grandparents or do we want to be like the modern wuss Swedes who plan to love Radical Islam until it loves them back?

    I wonder what would be safer a liberal to go to?

    1. A Trump rally of 10,000 white folks?

    2. or a rally of 10,000 muslims? :c

    The irony is that she criticizes "Trump supporters", as a whole group, for not understanding the nuances of problems and blaming whole groups for those problems.

    It's not just her skin color that makes her black... and the kettle agrees.

    The more relevant question.... what would it be safer to do?

    1) Attend a Trump rally dressed as a Muslim and carrying a sign that Trump is a racist?

    2) Attend a Muslim Rally dressed as a Jew and carrying a sign saying Mohammed was a child molester?

    One will most likely get you booed. The other will most likely get you lynched and killed by a mob.

    Islam is idiotic, and so is a silver spoon fed blowhard who's running on defunding the EPA and massive tax cuts for Billionaires.

    You had unprotected sex with someone who has HIV and you didn't catch it. That proves raw dog sex with HIV carriers is safe!
