Another missive from the Tweetmeister:
Christians in the Middle-East have been executed in large numbers. We cannot allow this horror to continue!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 29, 2017
Since Trump started campaigning, it’s been like this. “There’s this thing! Something must be done! I have no details, plans or ideas whatsoever! I’m gonna crush this!”
Like this current statement. Want to stop killing of Christians in the Middle East? Great. How? Oh, wait, you have no idea what the hell you’re talking about? No problem. I’m sure you’ll come up with the Best Plan Ever. After all, it must be easy. In fact, I am surprised no one else ever came up with this idea before!
There is another aspect to his rather horrifyingly facile statement, though: he just got through telling tens of thousands of Syrian refugees, people trying to escape being slaughtered by ISIL, that they can go screw themselves. And now he’s bemoaning the Christians being killed. So, essentially, if you’re a Christian, we’ll be outraged, and you can expect us to do whatever it takes to protect you; if you’re a Muslim, however, go die in agony—we don’t care.
