You don't need to be a Nobel Peace Prize winner to know Donald Trump is a f**king moron. But what Malala Yousafzai said after condemning his "no Muslims allowed" plan gave me pause:
On Tuesday, Ms. Yousafzai warned that anti-Muslim speech would only incite more terrorism. “The more you speak about Islam and against all Muslims, the more terrorists we create,” she told Britain’s Channel 4. “So it’s important that whatever politicians say, whatever the media say, they should be really, really careful about it. If your intention is to stop terrorism, do not try to blame the whole population of Muslims for it because it cannot stop terrorism.”I don't get it -- is this a tacit admission that Muslims are more prone to violence? Black people were enslaved and continue to be discriminated against all the time, and have had to listen to people say "all black are ____." Jews were persecuted by the millions and still face anti-Semitism, and have had to listen to people say "all Jews are ____." My fellow LGBT comrades and I have been harassed and demeaned and (still) have laws on the books against us to stop us from having equality. And many of us were bashed or murdered throughout the years, and we've had to listen to people say "all fags are ____." And hell, what about people from Jersey?! But I don't remember any of these groups ever threatening to become what it is they are being accused by small-minded bigots of being as a result of it,. Am I missing something here?
