More Draconian Than Trump

Reader comment on item: Finally Getting Serious about Identifying Islamists?

Submitted by Bill (United States), May 23, 2016 at 22:41

Dr. Pipes: I support Trump because he is more likely to protect me from the violence and the politics of Muslims than any other American politician. I do admire you for the intensity and the insight you display in criticizing Islam and uncovering the malevolence of Islam. When you get past Trump's call for the cessation of immigration of all Muslims and compare your approach, vetting Muslims so thoroughly the immigration of Muslims would slow to a trickle, there really is little difference between you and Trump other than style and the overwhelming fact that you, through your vetting process, are a million times more condemning of Islam than Trump, a quality for which I applaud you. Maybe I should support you for president.

I got a kick from the final sentence. Well, that makes two of us.
