Trump's Continued Silence on Minn. Mosque Attack 'An Outrage,' Says Rep. Ellison

Andrea Germanos, staff writer

President Donald Trump's continued silence following the recent bombing of a mosque in a Minneapolis suburb "is an outrage," Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) said Wednesday.

Trump’s SILENCE???
Not “an outrage”, but a Blueprint!

Ah, but DJT has to remain silent on the Minnesota travesty because to speak out against the violence would offend his ignorant, racist, xenophobic base, dontcha know. To expect any compassion exhibited toward non-whites and non-Christians from this demonic despot is a practice in futility…never happen. And, yes, his behavior continues to be OUTRAGEOUS!

What is there to say except that this just adds more support to the contention that the a$$hole in chief is a prejudiced tyrant who is a serious danger to what little democracy there is left in the USA.

Exactly. I think don’t think any president has focused as much on maintaining his base as Trump. I would assume this is at least partly attributable to the advice he is getting from Steve Bannon his chief political strategist and apparently a believer in the politics of fear and hate. I believe Trump’s political strategy for 2020 if he runs is to focus on pleasing his base as much as possible and prevent as many other voters from voting has he can. He clearly doesn’t have the majority of the country on his side but with combination of aggressive voter repression and voter apathy (he is probably turning many people off to politics) he actually could win again. Let’s hope he is impeached and out of office before 2020 or at least loses in the Republican primary in 2020. It would seem very unlikely that the Republican establishment would not try to defeat him in a primary, particularly if he remains so unpopular with most the country. .

It’s unfortunate yet is an eventual byproduct. What else should we expect considering the history and the written teaching of the phuedo religion called Islam? Uncomfortably is a two way street.

Even the fool will be considered wise if he keeps his mouth shut. I find no fault in considered silence.

I guess it is time to cross-post. Please forgive me:

"People of all faiths, all ages and all races came together Tuesday evening at the Dar Al Farooq Islamic Center in Bloomington to show their support and denounce the destruction wrought from an explosive hurled into an imam’s office Saturday morning.

The crowd of at least 1,000 people gathered on the back lawn of the mosque and listened to more than 20 speakers — imams, priests, rabbis and lay people. They all shared the same message: We are all one Minnesota. We will not let hate win." -Pet Pheifer, Minneapolis Star Tribune reporter, August 9, 2017.

Governor Dayton called it a terrorist attack, saying if things were reversed, everyone would call it that. Still… NO WORD FROM TRUMP.

I wish I could cite the source, but I heard either on the radio or TV news on Tuesday that Trump had reportedly said maybe it was the Left who did the bombing. (!)

The FBI is investigating. Their bomb experts are skilled in finding pieces and determining where bomb parts came from and who put them together.
