    According to me nothing other than Muslims are not a left wing group and you do not understand what a left wing group is. If you cant handle that try defining just group.

    I thought it was common sense that a left-wing group is a group who supports left-wing political causes. It's rare to find someone who denies that Obama and his party are left-wing. Usually the argument is that they are not left-wing enough by Euro socialist standards, but they will still say they are left-wing. They're certainly not right-wing.

    How do you know they are from the Left? Your link made out like there was some long list. The long list included six individuals, two of them were foreign. And by the way, if the Right had any sense, they would be enraged at Trump as well. And to their credit, many are.

    If we follow the democrat playbook for internment then I don't think anything will happen, just like last time.

    Ah yes, the beautiful anonymity of the internet. Nice misleading title, portraying the entire left spectrum of politics as advocating for trumps' murder.

    ITT: OP says online comments are mean.

    Some people . . . apparently including Trump, who has said as much. But you are right, there is a very good possibility that Trump is all talk.

    I can certainly call them a left-wing group. The overwhelming majority of them supported Obama and the party that Democrats vote for.

    So why were you suggesting Obama and the party that Democrats vote for are not left wing?

    I'm not aware of any Democrat attempts of this, but it wouldn't surprise me if there were some. I do know of several conservatives who openly fantasized about his death, or even charged that he should be executed for treason.

    Let me know when it is time to break out the tinfoil hats.

    Muslims who adhere closely to Islamic teachings view peace differently than non-Muslims. A temporary truce until such a time arises that they are powerful enough to achieve victory. Have you heard of this concept before?

    I didn't say they were not real Muslims because of their race; I said they were pseudo-Muslims because of their beliefs.

    Except for a lot of their core teachings, which have nothing to do with Islam and more to do with racial separatism and supremacism. Their religion openly teaches that the white race is a failed science experiment. They didn't get that from Islam.

    Hey, then I applaud you for your consistency. That's rare to see in this debate, though I would suggest that restricting immigration by country of origin probably makes more sense than restricting it by religion. It is easier to enforce and less likely to be overturned by the Supreme Court.

    And Congress has the Constitutional right to amend the Constitution. That doesn't answer my question.

    But they do have the right to freedom of religion and to not be subject to religious tests by our nation. Both suggestions would involve rewriting our laws.

    It's not much of one. You don't know who these people are at all, nor do you know who they were tweeting. But Wing Nut Daily saw no reason not to bellow the baseless assertion that these anonymous people were American "liberals". They made it up.

    I normally ignore all posts that make hasty and mistaken assumptions about my political leanings, but this one was too humorous to ignore. As someone who has been through both processes, obtaining a gun requires far, far, far less vetting than immigration does. I can go out an obtain a gun today if I want to, with little more than a quick, computerized background check. Immigration is much more difficult and involves a much more thorough background process.

    Their freedom of religion does not include the right to come here from other countries. Nobody has a right to come here. Creating an equivalency between that and gun ownership, which is an actual right, is not really possible.

    Tijani, a Muslim name

    Proving our point Tijani. And you are proving Trump's points.

    Muslims are notorious for doing this kind of stuff. And ive experienced this in my own dealings with them. It goes something like this.

    You"islam is a violent religion"
    Muslim"i disagree, its a relgion of peace"
    You"but how come the evidence doesnt suggest that. I mean look at Mohammed, your prophet , the guy was a violent nutjob"

    *the muslim then either kills you, like we saw in San Bernardino, or threatens violnce against you, thus proving your point*

    Islam is poison, period. And Muslims agree based on their reactions.

    it does seem odd that 70%+ of Black Africas issues stem for Islam and interaction with Islam sans the Congo, an observation a lot see but usually it's buried since the Media rarely talks about Africa.

    Whether that means anything I don't know.

    Which is a separate discussion. I'm not arguing here that anyone has the right to come here. I'm arguing that they have the right to not be discriminated against for their religion during the decision making process.

    One additional amendment would change that. We are both talking about changing the law. And yes, there is an equivalency between "People slip through the immigration process, so put on the brakes until we fix that" and "People slip through the gun purchase process, so put on the brakes until we can fix that."

    - - - Updated - - -

    Yes, and pretending that it applies to all Muslims and that all Muslims interpret it this way is what I'm calling out.
