Donald Trump wants to ban Muslims from entering the US. Is he racist?

Is Donald Trump just echoing the thoughts of the majority or is he inciting hate?

Firstly, I have to say that Muslims bring it upon themselves by fitting the stereotype. Every other week, they demonstrate why non-muslims hate muslims so much. They have to own that perception problem. They can't keep saying 'what about the rest of the peaceful muslims?' People are getting tired of it. Nobody knows when a peaceful muslim could turn into a hostile muslim.

Having said that, here's what I believe. Opinions of civilians and opinions of leaders/policy makers are not equal. A homeless man can believe in UFOs and that's okay. You can't have a potential president believe in UFOs.

There are a lot of ramifications to banning muslims. It's not something you can do in one fell swoop. Just like you cant just deport millions of Mexicans.

If country is strong like Russia with determined leader, anything can be done.Turkey have sanctions which hurt Russia but they took decision in interest of country.

I think DT is openly trolling everybody now -- just going to any length to get a reaction from people. He has alienated Hispanics, Blacks and Muslims already -- its just a matter of time before he picks on somebody else.

Re: Donald Trump wants to ban Muslims from entering the US. Is he racist?

Even though he might be wrong here in banning all peaceful people, he is doing the right thing by bringing this topic out in the open for discussion. There is another year for elections... a lot of time for introspection... and extrospection. Should be a fun year

I thought he was reading That San Bernandino thread of Echarcha before his speech.

I think that Donald Trump is a secret RSS member.

Re: Donald Trump wants to ban Muslims from entering the US. Is he racist?

He has left a lot of loose ends here. he said, it is not permanent but till 'US figures out what to do'. I was seeing some big interview of Fareed Zakaria in CNN, but was too drunk to figure out what he was saying.
Had an Indian politician said that, some 10 more would have returned their awards. Now, Aamir Khan must really be angry at lagaan not making it at the oscars.

Trump is never going to win, no matter how absurd he acts.

Why do you say that? I'm sure he can't do most of the things he's saying but he can win. There are plenty of Americans who say .. Focus on the country and fix things, forget for a bit about fixing the world.

Re: Donald Trump wants to ban Muslims from entering the US. Is he racist?

Whether he wins or not, what he is saying is good for the safety of citizens. The only thing peacefuls "do" about the actions of their not-so-peaceful brethren is give one of the following statements:
  1. They are not peacefuls because ROP says "killing one innocent is equal to killing humanity"
  2. They have misunderstood ROP because ROP says "killing one innocent is equal to killing humanity"
  3. West needs to correct its foreign policy
  4. West needs to be taught a lesson
  5. West has killed many more & destroyed many countries.


The statements above can also be combined with 'and' & 'but' to sound logical & knowledgeable.

But the spirit remains the same.

Which is "we can't do anything about it &, if you do something about it, you are wrong because it is happening because of something you did".

Which means "its your mistake, we can't do anything about it and you are not allowed to correct it".

Classic circular logic. Makes perfect sense to peacefuls.

As I said earlier I have kind of veto power So you can be sure he can't win.

Re: Donald Trump wants to ban Muslims from entering the US. Is he racist?

I dont know if Trump is racist, but one thing for sure - He is totally open about what he is feeling and thinking. It takes guts to make a statement like he did. I am quite certain that a large section of the general populace thinks what he is thinking but cannot say it openly for fear of the politically correct brigade which will make life hell.

Do I think Trump is right? Maybe he is honest about his feelings but on a political stage, such statements - however obvious and honest - cannot be made without consequences.
