Endorse This: Donald Trump Makes His ISIS Debut

Share

A few months ago, the media went a bit overboard with their hunch that Donald Trump’s rhetoric was feeding into ISIS’s propaganda machine. Even Hillary Clinton parroted the claim, despite the lack of any video evidence. It is true, though, that Trump was featured in a video for al Qaeda affiliate Al Shebab in January.

In a new video, which Mother Jones reports allegedly comes from the pro-ISIS Al-Battar Media Foundation, burning rubble flashes across the screen as recordings of several voices, including Donald Trump calling in for an interview on Fox Business, play in the background.

“Brussels was one of the great cities — one of the most beautiful cities of the world 20 years ago — and safe,” Trump says. “And now it’s a horror show — an absolute horror show.”

I won’t post the entire video here. If you really want to see it, you can find the full thing online. Yahoo excerpted Donald Trump’s feature in the ad:

It’s fascinating that, of all of Trump’s outrageous statements, this is the one that made its way onto an ISIS video. Where’s all the rhetoric about banning Muslims from entering the U.S., or “bombing the shit out of” the extremist group?

Actually, the audio used in the propaganda video is pretty typical of what ISIS uses in recruiting. The group advertises that it’s in an eschatological war with the West, and that their attacks on major European cities are part of a larger battle that will end with the Armageddon.

When Donald Trump says that Brussels is now “an absolute horror show,” he’s saying just what ISIS wants: not that they’re a radical group under intense bombing from America and allies, quickly losing strength and increasingly unpopular with potential recruits; but rather that they’re winning this war. If Brussels is a horror show, as this video conveys, then the war against the West is succeeding.

Republicans often mock President Obama’s downplaying of ISIS as a weakness of his, but in reality, he’s sticking to the script that counterterrorism analysts recommend: that this group must and will be destroyed, but we can’t play into their narrative to do it.

    Trump is an idiot. What’s alarming is the congregation too stupid to recognize that after an entire year of listening to his ignorant, lying, garbage.

      Hahah yeah that is literally the stupidest possible interpretation of what this article says, so no big surprise to see that you – actual genocide advocate and guy who never graduated high school Otto – are saying it.

      1. Otto T. Goat March 25, 2016

        Where have I advocated genocide?

        1. Mr Corrections March 25, 2016

          Like two stories ago you were saying a guy who committed genocide should be let off? Man, racists always have such incredible memory problems. Probably comes from having sibling parents.

          1. Otto T. Goat March 25, 2016

            He didn’t commit genocide.

          2. Mr Corrections March 25, 2016

            Uh huh.

          3. Otto T. Goat March 25, 2016

            How many boys have you killed with your GRIDS?

          4. Mr Corrections March 25, 2016

            Sorry you got nothing. It must be weird being impotent.

          5. Otto T. Goat March 25, 2016

            You’re guilty of analGRIDSicide.

          6. Mr Corrections March 25, 2016

            Yes, I get that you’re feeble and powerless. I’d feel bad, but it’s not like you’re actually a person.

          7. Otto T. Goat March 25, 2016

            You should look up what projection is.

          8. Mr Corrections March 25, 2016

            But I already have your posts.

          9. Mr Corrections March 25, 2016

            He was just convicted of it, you treason-loving Nazi.

          10. Otto T. Goat March 25, 2016

            By a kangaroo court.

          11. Mr Corrections March 25, 2016

            What does your opinion of a court – bearing in mind that you are a guy who did not finish high school – have to do with anything?

          12. Otto T. Goat March 25, 2016

            It’s funny you don’t what kangaroo court means.

          13. Mr Corrections March 25, 2016

            A kangaroo court is an unofficial court that rushes to a judgement on someone based on little to no evidence. None of that applies to the International Criminal Tribunal, which is recognised by almost every nation and has taken 16 years to render a judgement in this case based on mountains of evidence (including actual voice recordings of him planning to commit mass murder of Muslims). As he – like all racists – is a friggin’ moron, he chose to represent himself, a job he did about as well as you do with your internet comments.

            Sorry your racist hero was found guilty and will die in prison! Better luck with your next bigoted murderer!

          14. Otto T. Goat March 25, 2016

            Good job doing a Google search, I know that’s hard for someone like you who is suffering from late stage GRIDS dementia.

          15. Mr Corrections March 25, 2016

            OK glad you can admit you are 100% wrong about this, as you were yesterday re: trickle-down economics.

            Also, on a related note, recent psychological studies indicate that there is a 100% correspondence between homophobia, such as you endlessly display, and suppressed homosexuality. Something to think about!

          16. Otto T. Goat March 25, 2016

            You tell yourself that, fruity.

          17. Mr Corrections March 25, 2016

            Sorry that you can’t come to terms with your sexuality – but look at it this way, nobody of either sex will ever love you anyway. I’m still glad you have admitted that your racist hero was correctly and justly found guilty of genocide and crimes against humanity.

          18. Otto T. Goat March 25, 2016

            You have a lot of opinions for a diseased pillow biter.

          19. Mr Corrections March 25, 2016

            The fact that you – and all other homophobes – are actually gay isn’t an opinion, it’s an inescapable scientific fact. Embrace your homosexuality, Otto – you’ll be a lot happier.

            I hope that helps!

    No wonder the world is terrified of this racist, bigoted hate filled billionaire…he IS a danger to the entire world….but he loves those ‘poorly educated”.

      Do start nothing won’t be nothing he said he loved the highly educated too. The real and proven danger is hispanics and the muslims.

      1. bobnstuff March 25, 2016

        Don’t forget the Blacks and Chinese. I’m sure given time Trump will come out against every group of people on the planet.

        1. Gilbert West March 25, 2016

          The real danger is poor, ignorant, gullible white people. They can be told anything and will go off gung-ho against their own best interests if you play to their prejudices.

          1. bobnstuff March 25, 2016

            Amen to that.

        Hispanics?? Is that why as the percentage of Hispanics in the American population has increased over the past 2-3 decades the crime rate in America has decreased?? And why El Paso and San Diego, two cities with the largest percent of Hispanics in America, are two of the cities with the biggest drops in crime rates over the past 20-30 years as their Hispanic populations increased??

        Fact is Rosemary, illegal Hispanic aliens commit crimes at 1/8th to 1/10th the rate of native-born Americans. And when they do commit a crime, it is 2-3 times less likely to be a crime that warrants incarceration.

        I don’t have similar statistics for Muslims – but neither group is anywhere near as crime proficient as just the run of the mill next native-born American (especially those who have been radicalized even by hate rhetoric such as Trump’s.).

      America created terrorism around the world thanks to our beloved bush and our foreign policies in the Middle East supporting the Saudi King because it make the wealthy in this country reap fortunes in the oil and weapons stocks on Wall Street you are just an ill informed American get your facts straight without spreading false unsubstantiated statement and fear mongering how stupid can you be you white idiot

  7. Godzilla March 25, 2016

    Every Muslim enclave in Europe is a cesspool. Multiculturalism is a fantasy that will never work, humans are tribal and it CAN’T work. Only idiot bleeding heart Liberal’s that have no education worth peeing on thinks it can. What is happening in Europe is an example of how Left Wing nonsense ends up, destruction of innocent lives because too many people are ignorant. Liberal’s, you are ignorant if you believe multiculturalism is good. Is will just result in more death.

    This guy Trump is a disgrace to America he exemplifies the divisive partisan politics of the Republican Party a party that was a do nothing congress and senate under Obama living on fillabustering 500 of Obama common sense bills that would have helped the middle class. Republican Party will and continue to support the wealthy in this country still believe in reagans trickle down economic policies ( trickle up really!!!)

      Republican policies commended as “trickle down” didn’t start with Reagan. Trickle down has been a GOP delusion or dodge for years before.

      Rather than “trickle down” the practice is better termed “piss on the ones beneath.”
