Recently, a terrorist recruiting video surfaced that featured the most recognizable presidential candidate on the ballot by a long shot.
The video, allegedly created by the Somali terrorist organization al-Shabaab, uses historic civil rights footage and a audio snippet of candidate Donald Trump to label the United States as a racist nation. The video tells of the history of racism and discrimination that plague our country and hypothesizes that this hatred will be turned on to the Muslim community. The quote used in the video comes from a statement by Trump in regards to the San Bernardino shooting last month. In that statement Trump states that the country need a,
“…total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what the hell is going on”.
This statement isn’t the first instance of Trump sharing his opinion of the Muslim community. He has been filmed making mention of his plans to survey all mosques in the country and establish a database for all Muslims living in the United States without any grounds other than random acts of violence by some alleged associates of the religion. Trump’s Hitler-esque comments against the most heavily populated religious group on the planet have given these terror organizations fuel to add to their fire of hatred and the ability to recruit more to become sympathetic to their cause.
The video also includes footage of recent police shootings and violence against African Americans in Ferguson, Missouri and Baltimore, Maryland with claims that this is what is in store for the American Muslim if they do not take action.
There has yet to be any confirmation of the videos authenticity but the message it conveys still stands. The radical outbursts of candidate Trump have now been proven to not only be derailing in debate but detrimental to our national security. This video is proof that the open Muslim hate speech that has occurred during this presidential race has only made our enemy stronger and more passionate about their cause. Hopefully, its surfacing will bring to light a change in content from our candidates at their remaining speaking engagements.
