American Muslims retaliate against hate as Donald Trump calls for special identification.

With recovery personnel still digging through the smoldering rubble of the World Trade Center and the horrifying shock of the 9/11 attacks still reverberating, George W.In the last few days, Presidential candidate Donald Trump has called for greater security in the United States whipping up fears an influx of Syrian refugees could wreak havoc across the country.Does the rise of “outsider” presidential candidates including Ben Carson, Bernie Sanders, Carly Fiorina and above all Donald Trump signal fundamental change in the nominating process? The billionaire real estate mogul and former reality TV star is leading the race for the Republican nomination for the fourth straight month, with other Republican establishment candidates such as former Florida Gov.

In a tweet on Monday, Trump referenced a recent Wall Street Journal article about these anti-Trump efforts, tagging the RNC’s official Twitter account, @GOP, in his complaint. Another reporter followed up immediately to clarify: “In New Jersey?” Carson responded affirmatively; he later repeated that he saw the celebrations in “the newsreels” at the time. “There are going to be people who respond inappropriately to virtually everything. I noted months ago that Trump is a unique figure who poses a special challenge to the GOP and “cannot be sidelined easily” as others assumed he would be.

On Sunday he appeared on (US) ABC’s This Week, saying he supported waterboarding on terrorism suspects — a practice that human rights advocates consider to be torture. • Accused “Arab” communities of cheering during the September 11 attacks in nearby New Jersey. (“It did happen. The Carson campaign did not immediately respond to a request for related footage. “He doesn’t stand behind his references and apologizes for the mistaken references. Bobby Jindal put it in September, “Ted Cruz is clinging to Trump like a limpet to an oil tanker, hoping to suck up his votes when Trump eventually sinks.” Cruz shrewdly, and cynically, recognized early on that Trump had tapped into something visceral and real with a segment of Republican primary voters whose votes Cruz ultimately needs for himself. This year, the two candidates leading in polls of GOP voters are Donald Trump and Ben Carson, both of whom seem intent on making sure no Muslim would ever consider voting Republican. While the media and several other Republican candidates expressed horror at Trump’s rhetoric toward undocumented immigrants over the summer, expecting his rhetoric to do him in by Labor Day, Cruz puckered up. “Quite a few members of this field have attacked Donald Trump.

The misstep comes as Carson and Trump have both faced mounting criticism for calling on expanded surveillance of Muslim Americans in the wake of the terrorist attacks in Paris that left more than 100 people dead and hundreds more injured. A lot of folks in the media have asked me ‘Ted Cruz, will you do the same?’ ” Cruz said in early August. “I have been glad to praise Donald Trump for speaking out boldly and brashly and for focusing on illegal immigration.” The two formally crystallized their relationship over a meeting, per Cruz’s request, at Trump Tower. On Monday, Carson elaborated on his calls for closer monitoring of mosques. “If we have evidence that there is radicalization going on — and the point that I’m making is that it doesn’t have to be specific to a mosque; it can be anything. The strategy allowed Cruz to maintain a reservoir of good will among Trump’s supporters, and it also kept Cruz out of Trump’s trigger-happy Twitter-rant crosshairs.

When asked about his recent claim that the FBI can only monitor between 30 and 60 people at a time, Carson qualified the statement by saying that’s the number of people the FBI “can follow 24/7, not just people on their watch list.” When asked where he received that information, he said: “From television. Nor was Chris Christie, who happens to be governor of New Jersey, willing to challenge Trump. “I think if it had happened, I would remember it,” he said limply, “but, you know, there could be things I forget too.” Trump and Carson are not alone in their pandering. When I look at the migration and the lines and I see all strong, very powerful looking men, I see very few women I see very few children, there’s something strange going on. “They should not come in, they should not be allowed in. Christie said he wouldn’t accept Syrian refugees even if they are “orphans under 5.” Ted Cruz favors admitting only Syrian refugees who are Christians, and Jeb Bush sounded sympathetic to the idea. He then turned the question on reporters: “So you guys better be accurate.” “No, I don’t worry about that,” he said. “The thing that will destroy our country is if we are overly concerned about violating somebody’s sensibilities while we allow blatant activity to occur that will violate all of our sensibilities.” Carson added that he holds “the Constitution to very high regard.

They are intended to whip up fear and anger among citizens who are either uninformed or predisposed to believe hateful rumors even when faced with evidence to the contrary. The idea for a database not only drew sharp rebukes from his Republican rivals and disbelief from legal experts who consider it unconstitutional, but the Muslim-American community, which says Trump is only helping to divide people over the issue.

Yes.” When pressed about how he could possibly make this criticism in the same week that he was campaigning with his most recent high-profile endorser, Iowa Rep. I can only help the words that come out of my own mouth.” King, not accidentally, was sitting in a separate vehicle as part of Cruz’s entourage while Cruz was giving this interview. But perhaps, thanks to outspoken Americans like those below, the conversation will steer itself in a more responsible direction, rather than the repugnant. Ben Carson, who apparently is subject to the same laws of political gravity from which Trump is exempt, has begun to fall while Trump has retaken the lead. The governor “affirmed his commitment to be a partner with the federal government on the resettlement of refugees and noted a growing frustration over the federal government’s refusal to address specific security concerns and requests for information,” a Rauner spokesman said in a statement released Monday.

President Barack Obama engaged in partisan taunting. “Now they’re worried about 3-year-old orphans,” he sniped. “That doesn’t sound very tough to me.” Democrats, starting with the president, need to address the widespread anxiety. He’ll pound Rubio for representing the elites on one side, while presenting himself as the more polished, credentialed figure to Trump supporters on the other. Like every other candidate, though, Cruz’s strategy hinges on that same question everyone’s been asking for nearly six months: Will Trump collapse?

His celebrity status is the best explanation, along with his stance on immigration and the slowness of the Republican elites to coalesce around another candidate. He was parodied on “Sesame Street” when Ronald Reagan was in the White House, popped up in hip-hop lyrics by 1989 and first appeared in the New York Times during the Nixon administration.
