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?

So finally this fence-sitter/balanced/confused take

- Consistent with his earlier stands, he loves being politically incorrect and is not scared of making such statements Kudos for that
- He has identified the problem right. Normal, peace loving folks suddenly turn peaceful. the latest guys had no criminal record and so on
- But his solution is outlandish and impractical, though he has been wise enough to put some disclaimers or conditions on it and there is a slim chance he will actually implement it. Any one remember David Coleman Headley?? He is right in saying that US 'Must figure out what to do'. I think i mentioned in some post years back, but the only country which seems to have figured it out is Singapore. There are 15% peaceful guys and while it had a history of riots decades back, since the 'Lee model' of a 'fine city', it has managed to avoid issues from peaceful folks. :Touchwood: for it
