If ISIS Could Vote In Our Election, It Would Choose Donald Trump

Share

Countless foreign affairs experts (including plenty of Republicans) and weathered military brass all agree: Donald Trump is grossly unfit to be Commander and Chief. But in reality, it’s not just that Trump lacks presidential qualifications; is that he’s uniquely qualified to make things a lot worse.    

It’s already happening. ISIS is using Donald Trump as a recruitment tool, galvanizing support and boosting their momentum.

Think of it this way: if ISIS is a fire that we have to put out, having no access to water or a fire hose would render one unfit to fight it. However, the frightening truth is that Trump and his Republican backers are actively, willingly, and ignorantly throwing gasoline on the flames.  

If you don’t trust U.S. politicians, then at least trust U.S. enemies: ISIS is rooting for a Trump presidency because it gives them a leg up. But why?

First,  the ISIS worldview is simple: They see the world as believers vs. non-believers, divided between land governed by their version of Islam and the lands of its enemies. ISIS fears religious freedom and secular society, which is why their main goal is to “destroy the gray area of coexistence.” ISIS approves of Western Islamophobia, because it fuels their binary “us vs. them” doctrine; they gain power and support from the irresponsible and hateful brand of divisiveness Trump flings around when he solicits cheers for anti-Muslim rhetoric — like he did when he insulted the family of a fallen Muslim-American soldier.  

What’s more, scholars agree that Trump’s proposal to ban Muslims from entering the U.S. is outright illegal under U.S. and international law, citing the U.S. Constitution’s equal protection clause and the First Amendment’s doctrine of freedom of religion. It’s not just illegal, it’s also not possible:  there’s no ‘religion’ column on passports. So Trump’s nonsensical proposal has the sole effect of playing into ISIS’s narrative–basically doing their dirty work for them.

This isn’t all just theory, either. In a new analysis, Foreign Affairs magazine recently interviewed ISIS supporters, and according to a former ISIS fighter and self-identified jihadist, “We don’t need to convince Muslims in the Middle East that the West is against them … The next step for the Islamic State is to reach Muslims in America and Europe.” Another said, “Congratulations to us on the victory of Trump! Sit back and relax and watch the end of America at his hands.”

From the same Foreign Affairs analysis, another man who left ISIS said that ISIS wants to make the West an “incubator” for locally inspired attacks. ISIS is currently using video footage of Trump’s anti-Muslim sentiments around the attacks in Brussels and Orlando to recruit and galvanize support.

And since ISIS is losing ground on its home turf in the Middle East, they’re increasingly focusing their propaganda less on battles in the region and more on the Trump-type content that will encourage homegrown terrorism and lone-wolf attacks in the U.S. and Europe. Picture a room full of jihadi social media operatives splicing islamophobic Trump-isms into their recruitment videos, woven between footage of beheadings — what more do they need to justify their hateful narrative?

In an increasingly combative election, one of the few things we still all agree on is countering ISIS’s ideology and evil mission. Donald Trump, however, seems intent on designing”‘policies” and advancing an attitude that plays right into their hands, both ideologically and operationally. He claims that he alone can keep the country safe, but he’s actually singularly bad for our national security–and our enemies are taking notice, and using his rhetoric as fuel.

It all boils down to a simple question all American voters must ask themselves: If ISIS would vote for Donald Trump, why would you?

    What a piece of Hillary Clinton backed garbage. ‘Oh no! Don’t say or do anything against ISIS, otherwise that will be a recruitment tool for them!’. But, isn’t ISIS only fighting a war of “narratives”?

      David, what part of “the guy who’s feet hurt too much to serve but could play varsity tennis” demanding we send troops to fight DAESH don’t you want to understand? What part of “Our drone strikes and air attacks are eliminating DAESH leadership” aren’t you hearing from Brietbart or Fox? Oh, yeah, that’s right. It’s in their charter to not proclaim any successful military attacks by the current administration. It may make folks think they are successful!

        David only knows bitching. He’s really a sad, pathetic misguided man who can’t make it on his own and is envious of anyone else who can. So you get that same right wing idea they will FORCE us to their misguided ideas that lying is the new truth and lawlessness is the new law.

      What a piece of backed garbage you are. Did your Mommy whack your butt so often because she was tired of her nasty little man bitching and moaning.

      Neither Hillary NOR Obama caused ISIS jerkface. There is enough proof of that from the Joint Chiefs themselves. They blame Bush. I don’t. I blame that cockface Cheney. Cheney have a vested interest in Iraq. He made a deal with Halliburton to hand them a no bid contract, which he carried out while he sent Bush around the country marketing the Iraq war.

      Time for you bums to get off your lazy butts, shut your moron mouths and learn you are about as important as a speck of sand on the Sahara desert.

    ISIS, Al Qaeda, every terrorist organization, and competitors like Russia and China, would love nothing more than seeing Trump elected President of the United States. Proposals such as dismantling NATO, withdrawing U.S. troops from strategic positions because our partners are not paying us enough to cover the cost of what Trump plans to turn into mercenaries for the sake of greatness, is like music in the ears of every enemy of the United States.

      Dom….one of the major lies that he told was the one that he said about the U.S. paying 78%+ NATO’S costs……actually, the U.S. only pays 22%. Japan has been using much of their money to beef up their own military and build their own bases, which means that we can move our troops out of there eventually. So, I think that his BS about our paying the highest cost for NATO is a boldfaced lie!!! It’s unfortunate that he’s so uninformed about NATO and about our foreign policies around the world!

      1. Dominick Vila September 28, 2016

        The most important part of this argument is that since the collapse of the Soviet Union, we have used NATO to legitimize our adventurism by stating that our actions is part of a broad coalition.

      How, exactly? List out your precise fears.

      1. Eleanore Whitaker September 28, 2016

        How? First of all, Trump is a failure in business. He lies and says he is successful. Ask any one of the 6 banks who funded his “Empire” if today they would fund a single thing he builds or decides to call business. He is economically toxic.

        When he makes his statements in campaign speeches, explain how all by himself he intends to build a wall entirely around the US? Canada and the US have the world’s longest border between any two countries. Not possible even from an engineering standpoint.

        As to Trump’s lies, which you see totally incapable of identifying, Trump is nothing more than a snake oil salesman. Look around at all of those things with the Trump name on them. He no longer owns a single one. Not any in the US or any in the rest of the world.

        His prostitutes his name “Trump” and sells it like a dockside harlot. That is ALL Trump has now to call “success.”

        As to his lie that he has 200 military leaders endorsements. In what country? The Joint Chiefs have already stated twice that if Trump becomes president, they will resign.

        So what you have is a man who uses the same Roy Cohn attack dog methods to FORCE others to do what he wants. He’s had 3 wives and the only thing he ever gets is the arm candy they provide when he is out in public. Otherwise, this very stupid man always marries golddiggers he knows are foreign and submissive. So he thinks. They are not in the least submissive with his money when they divorce him.

        1. dpaano September 28, 2016

          Actually, Eleanore, he does own a few things in the U.S. I just read an article earlier on MSN that showed the FORBES report on the properties he owns and his percentage of ownership, and there are quite a few that he owns 100%. I’ll have to see if I can find the article again….you might try to google it on FORBES.

    If you want to starve ISIS fire of oxygen then why write this article which only fuels it more? Trump complained of Hillary use of proposed ISIS tactics on her website and that no enemy should see such things so why then arent you complaining to Hillary to take it off as well as not fan the flames further in articles like this? It can mean one thing, you dont want anti-muslim talk, period, because you want to help muslims rise. Thats the issue and people arent buying it. Instead boiling points in US and Euro will rise and citizens will take matters into their own hands.

    Good intelligence, not carpet bombing of the Middle East, not nuking ISIS in Syria and Iraq, not profiling Muslims in America or prohibiting them from entering the United States, will protect America. Some of the intelligence can come from America’s allies, some from simply following leads that appear at home. If Trump were to be elected, America’s allies would be less likely to inform U.S. intelligence agencies about possible ISIS or al Qaeda plots than if a more cooperative administration were running the country. If Trump were to be elected, he’d probably destroy America’s intelligence capabilities [sic] by ignorantly ordering them to do everything wrong. Obviously, the man listens to no one, and his knee-jerk temperament would only make things better for ISIS.

    1. Eleanore Whitaker September 28, 2016

      In reality, there was a report way back in 2004, from several expert sources on terrorism who said that al Qaeda would eventually splinter. At that time, there were over 500 worldwide terror cells in operation.

      When Peter Bergen, author of Holy War, interviewed bin Laden in Afghanistan, he indicated in his book that bin Laden was only the tip of the iceberg.

      So Trump’s claim that Obama and Hillary started ISIS is just more of Trump’s pack of lies. You know why righties love his lies…They want to so confuse facts and truth in the minds of dipshits like them that no one will be able to make the distinction anymore of truth and lies.

      Hillary was on the mark. The IRS has stated 2 times now that Trump is the only reason he is refusing to disclose his tax records. Back when he was Roy Cohn’s protogee, Cohn taught Trump that if someone says anything he doesn’t like, he should “punch back” harder. He also taught Trump that if Trump decides to stiff his business associates, Trump isn’t to blame. The people he stiffed are.

      So when you look at who and what Trump is besides his inability to EVER tell the truth and support it with facts, you have a man who has lived his entire life blaming others for the theft Trump commits.

      Cohn taught Trump that all he has to do to beat any rap is to hire the best lawyers. That worked until he got into trouble with refusing to rent apartments to blacks. The courts nailed him but Trump still went public and said, “I won.” NO he didn’t.

      Trump is a man who bases lies and corruption on thematics. He’s for years created the theme of the country is in dire straits even during the 90s, one of the most successful of US economic eras. He perpetuates the idea that minorities are criminals and responsible for everything that goes wrong in the US. Funny though…2 of his wives were Slovenian immigrants. Does that include them or his Georgia Peach Maples?

      The problem with Trump is that he is mentally ill just like most right wingers. They cannot admit they have mental problems because to them, admitting they are unhinged is akin to being drawn and quartered.

  9. AgLander September 28, 2016

    Humorous and baseless claim by the wingnut leftist author considering that ISIS caught fire and spread like an out of control California wildfire in Iraq and then into 30 other countries due to the feckless actions of Obama-Clinton in stripping Iraq of any protective U.S. military presence at the most critical period. When you look at it that way, one can realistically call Obama the daddy of ISIS and Hillary the mommy of ISIS. If ISIS had a vote, they’d undoubtedly vote for their nurturing mommy and daddy, not the guy (Trump) who actually is committed to wiping them out.

      IN order words, a pyscho of the ISIS breed. Give it up Lander. You will never FORCE a decent bowell movement much less FORCE us to your insanity level.

      Time for you to learn to wipe your own butt instead of FORCING your MOMMY to do it for you. Not a single one of your posts EVER have legal, court documented proof. Shows what a super asshat you are.

      1. AgLander September 28, 2016

        The correct term is “champing at the bit”, not chomping. Any writer, as you claim to be, should know that horses do not “chomp” their teeth they “champ” (grind) their teeth. But then again, I guess that explains why those two books you self financed and self published sit in your basement still boxed up and waiting for the first sale! Maybe you should switch to porn writing where the readers are less sophisticated and aren’t looking for correct language usage but simply looking for a titillating experience!

        1. Eleanore Whitaker September 28, 2016

          I prefer chomping Bossyass. Try not to tell others how to speak. Your mind control games are not working too well these days, are they?

          Hey stupid. I never HAD to self-publish. But keep repeating your lies. You must be the asshat of the year. I gave you the ISBN numbers. For your information, dipshit, you don’t get an ISBN number if you self-publish. And, self-publishing or vanity presses are not secure enough to protect a writer’s right to their work.

            If I was your life coach or book agent, I’d have a sit down session with you to discuss your strengths and weaknesses. You are weak in proper use of the language, that we know as it’s been demonstrated over and over BUT you have one obvious strength…..you have a filthy and coarse mouth and like to “talk dirty” in making comments at this site……therefore, I’d strongly encourage you to move towards the type writing style that fits that “special” talent……porn and bikers magazines. I think you could carve out a mediocre career quite nicely in one of those sectors and maybe even get off government assistance once you build some momentum!

            You can’t demonstrate a decent bowel movement. Admit it. I save my trash mouth for trash like you. Don’t you hicks EVER get a clue?

            You actually think we fall for that phony drawl and swaggering? You actually think we don’t know that your state is eating up 65% of every annual budget because slugs like you spend all day trolling while our tax dollars feed your for profit prisons, your military industries that kill our kids and keep this country in endless war? Or your HICK polluter industries that cost every US taxpayers to clean up or help your asshat CONman states to pay fines for dumping in soil, air and water?

            Try again jerk boy. I have more experience in a strand of hair on my head than you hicks will ever have. The minute one of yours opens their mouths, it sounds like something from an alien planet.

What is the grid pattern and softness rating on all those pages contained in those boxed-up and unsold books collecting dust in your basement? Perhaps, if the pages are soft enough, they can be repurposed and used as toilet paper. Might as well get some use out of them, right?

    Presidents can bar refugees, immigration from areas that are a national security threat , no congressional approval required. There is no constitutional violation here except if you do not protect the security of the country and that is sedition and treasonous.

    1. Eleanore Whitaker September 28, 2016

      No presidents cannot bar refugees. That isn’t how the government works. The president, as Commander-in-Chief, can only reinforce and “execute” the existing national security initiatives that Congress, Senate and House, approve.

      If you are falling for Trump’s immigration BS, you better include that nude pig wife of his, Melania. Or do you want to wait till she does a nude photo op in the Oval Office?

      1. CPANY September 28, 2016

        You’re wrong Eleanor. Congress and the president can bar Muslims by putting them on the no-fly list and by enacting a law that declares them to be a clear and present danger, dedicated to the violent overthrow of the United States government.

        Until we find a way to neutralize the muslim threat, we need to take action to protect our citizens. Your arguments offer no solutions, just hatred of men in general.

      2. Leftout September 28, 2016

        The precedent for president Nudity has been ratified by Bill Clinton and Monica and you are correct in that the president already has authority as did Jimmy Carter to limit foreign nasties from coming in. Melania is hardly a pig compared to that piggy that ate her self out of the Ms Universe endorsements . What a load. She does look better now though. I am sure you, Eleanore , look a lot better than Ms Piggy . Your photos are acceptable here .

    There is a very insane group in this country who believe Trump’s lies are okay. So..they will raise their children to be liars and crooks like Trump. After all, he is their role model isn’t he?

    Since 1850 when the Republican Party was founded, the Republicans have never wanted government. They have always wanted government to be run like a business. Okay..so, look at that for what’s it’s worth. Is it not a fact that during the 1990s, Trump’s Empire began to crumble to the point where banks considered the Trump name dangerous? Every NY paper back in the 90s was loaded with reports on one after another of Trump’s casinos and hotels more than $2 billion in debt. Trump went on a spending spree like a drunken sailor that ended in bankruptcies and the confiscation of his Trump Airlines and his glitzy yatch. But this is the man the right believes can manage you and your country? Sure he can. So long as you have NO voice in your government and he and the Republicans think, speak and act for all of us.

    So long as they have access to every dime we earn and every school and college is run like Roy Cohn’s McCarthyism.

    When he tried and failed to debate with Hillary Clinton, he made several HUGE gaffes that he unwittingly then linked to the same crook CEOs as he is: “I paid no taxes because I am smart.”

    He lied about virtually every question put to him. What would make any sane American believe he is not going to hand over what used to be a government to the nutbag right wingers who are power mad and ready to FORCE their will on the rest of us. As if we will just stand by and allow it.

    Their way or the highway will result in another US Civil War and their blood in the streets if they do not stop playing the FORCE is with them. It isn’t now and it never will be.

    These are crazies who cannot find a single moment of peace in their own lives so they do as the slogan says, “Misery loves company.”

    Vote for Trump and you vote for No government and you become a Trump employee who like ALL Trump employees gets no pay because Mr. Emperor will say as he did in the debate, the reason he didn’t pay his building contractors who built his casinos was because they “did poor work.”

    Wake up people. Do you want another Roy Cohn protogee always on the attack causing suicides like Cohn did?

      Well said, sister. Do you really believe he is a cokehead? He certainly has the symptoms.

      1. Eleanore Whitaker September 28, 2016

        It is more than possible that Trump is a cokehead. The reason people outside of the NY/NJ Metro area know so little about Trump’s past is that unlike us, they were not inundated day after day with Trump’s statements and his marital affairs.

        For example, my memory of his divorce from Ivana was so bitter that Ivana and Marla Maples with whom Trump had an affair while married to Ivana, was splashed on the covers of the NY Daily News and NY Post for months and months. What I recall is that Ivana, being an immigrant wife, with 3 Trump children, told a NY Times reporter that Donald said he “no longer felt anything for Ivana sexually” because he “couldn’t have sex with a woman who had borne children.”

        I’ve posted several times that Trump has some pretty peculiar sexual proclivities. He was photographed by NY/NJ papers at some of the Manhattan hot spots where cocaine was always the drug du jour of the “pretty people.” So yes. It is possible.

        1. Mama Bear September 28, 2016

          I always thought living outside NY and the DC beltway was a negative, but not anymore. Constant Trump news is so depressing and disgusting. Idiot people who support him are what will bring this country into utter chaos. If we do not pull together and win this election, not just the Predidential part it is going to be hard to survive as a nation.

      2. dpaano September 28, 2016

        Yeah, that constant sniffling during the debate was driving me crazy!! I’m surprised that Hillary didn’t ask him if he needed to rest or if he was sick!!! I think she was just being her usual kind self and didn’t ask that burning question.

        1. Mama Bear September 28, 2016

      3. dpaano September 28, 2016

        Perhaps? One could not tell, but the sniffling certainly didn’t help him.

  12. Eleanore Whitaker September 28, 2016

    Of course ISIS wants Trump. They know this coke head is unhinged. What better way to push their takeover agenda than a president who is unstable enough to create mass instability in government?

    He’ll be busy building walls around the country …with YOUR tax dollars. But, you will never get to know which of his international business associates are a national security risk. There’s the man ISIS wants…T R U M P. After all, ISIS terrorists see his name on all too many of their buildings and assume he actually owns them. So you bet they want Trump for president. So they can take him down.

  13. Jon September 28, 2016

    While it should be obvious without needing to rely on ISIS statements and actions that Trump is a significant booster, it is even more concerning that he is too stupid to realize how much he aids and abets ISIS. Like Putin in Russia, ISIS has an easily manipulated ally in Trump. Trump continues to either lie or show his stupidity with his ignorant statements and inflammatory rhetoric. He is a danger to not only the U.S. but to the world.

    1. dpaano September 28, 2016

      The fact that he has NO foreign policy knowledge doesn’t help matters either! He knows nothing about our relationships with other countries and doesn’t even seem to care. He just thinks he’s going to go in with both guns loaded and take over the world and “make America great.” All he’s going to do is start World War III, and make this country into another third world country with pollution, starving populations, pitiful wealth distribution; low employment, and I could go on. Unfortunately, his followers just don’t see this…..they have been totally brainwashed into thinking he’s going to be their savior…..he’s actually the devil in disguise! I think, if he’s elected, his followers will find out that they’re in worse straits than they are in now! They just don’t seem to see it, but it’s the truth!

        Yes, it’s the truth but the truth doesn’t matter to them. I read a poll sometime in the last couple of weeks. The question was “Do you believe Donald Trump would start a nuclear war if elected?” They reported that 40% of voters believed he would. With respect to those voters who said they were voting for Trump, 22% of them believed he would. If more than 1 in 5 are voting for him believing he will potentially kill them, the truth is secondary at best.

          It absolutely astounds me that so many people believe his lies and BS!! A smart, logical person would see through his lies in a heartbeat!! Again, I blame it on brainwashing…..they’ve apparently been watching too much FAUX News, CNN, etc. and listening to all the BS from the various RW talk show hosts who have absolutely NO idea what they’re talking about! People need to wise up quickly to his con job……

            As many others have said, Trump and his supporters live in a bubble. Truth, reason, morality. compassion, ethics, and logic as well as many more things do not exist inside their bubble.

    Apparently those that follow Trump don’t seem to understand what he’s doing to this country. If he’s elected, God forbid, he will run this country into the ground just as he has his many business dealings! He doesn’t want to pay the country’s bills; thinks that NATO should pay us more (he says we pay 78% of the cost for NATO; in all actuality, we only pay 22% of the cost); he wants to go into Iraq and Iran and “take” their oil fields away from them; he thinks No. Korea and China should have nuclear bombs; and I could go on and on! You can imagine how that resonates with other countries and ISIS!
