The “man” in the Oval Office seems to have a deathly fear of terrorists. At least those with slightly darker skin, that worship a slightly different version of Big Daddy. According to him, only Islamic Extremists are a Threat!
White Supremacist, Khristian (As opposed to “Christian,” which they are not!) filberts can’t be terrorists. They supported his candidacy. In fact, he made one of them, Stephen K. Bannon, Assistant to the President and Chief Strategist.
His mantra seems to be “If they’re white, they’re all right. If they’re a bit brown, put ’em down!”
Unless you’ve been taking a two-week vacation on one of Jupiter’s outer moons, you’re probably aware that Trump (aka “Herr Rump”, aka “Duh Fuhrer”) has issued an executive order “temporarily” blocking Muslims from entering the U.S. That is, of course, unless they’re from a country that he does business with.
For instance, the vast majority of the 9/11 terrorists were from Saudi Arabia, but S.A. gets a pass. After all, terrorism is terrorism, but business is business.
Then yesterday, (2/2/17) Reuters reported that Duh Fuhrer “wants to revamp and rename a U.S. government program designed to counter all violent ideologies so that it focuses solely on Islamist extremism.”
Cosmetically, he wants the program’s name changed from “Countering Violent Extremism” to “Countering Islamic Extremism.” He wants them to quit targeting white supremacist groups entirely.
This, despite the fact that for the last several years, DHS and law enforcement agencies around the country have stated that right-wing groups are a far bigger threat than Islamic militants.
As for why they would think that, the following is a very partial list of right-wing extremist incidents over the last 15 years;
- July 19, 2002

Shawna Forde — the executive director of Minutemen American Defense (MAD), an anti-immigrant vigilante group that conducts “citizen patrols” on the Arizona-Mexico border — is charged with two counts of first-degree murder for her role in the slayings of a Latino man and his 9-year-old daughter in Arivaca, Ariz. She was sentenced to life in prison.
The list goes on and on and on, but this post is starting to get very long. You can check out the entire list here.
But, according to Duh Fuhrer, the only real terrorists are Islamic.
