Journalist BLASTS GOP: When Will They Call For ‘Shutting Down Churches’ (VIDEO)

More and more public figures are getting fed up with the hate speech coming out of the Republican Party regarding Muslims. This is especially true of Donald Trump, who has infamously suggested that the American government should implement Nazi-esque programs that would include databases for all Muslims, as well as surveillance of mosques. Nevermind the unconstitutional nature of such suggestions; they are dangerous on their own merit, regardless of what the law says.

One journalist has completely flipped the script on this anti-Muslim hate speech, though. Michael Mayo of the Orlando paper Sun-Sentinel has pointed out the hypocrisy of the GOP candidates who called for the aforementioned horrors to be perpetuated on all Muslims in America, but didn’t say the same about Christians after right-wing terrorist Robert Lewis Dear shot up a Planned Parenthood location in Colorado Springs. The remarks were made when Mayo participated in a panel discussion on the recent events. Katie Phang, a legal analyst with Fox News, insisted that the deafening silence on Dear’s murderous rampage was because “you can’t politicize three people being murdered, and going on to say:

“What you need to do is express your sympathies. Planned Parenthood is always going to be a trigger point — no pun intended — right? It’s going to be hot button topic.”

Luckily, Mayo was there to set her straight. Taking a breath, he responded:

“You can politicize it. Things are politicized all the time. And when we hear after the Paris attacks, ‘Oh, it’s time to shut down some mosques and time to register Muslims.’”

If Phang thought Mayo was done, she was sadly mistaken. He then went on to point out how hypocritical the GOP response was to the two acts of terrorism:

“But when it’s home grown terrorism — this was an act of terrorism — and again, it’s going to be ‘lone wolf,’ a man with mental problems. But he had some political views, and he was religious, he was raised Baptist, he read the Bible.”

“Do we hear anybody talk about shutting down churches or registering Christians? No! Because that’s an absurd overreaction that paints too broad a brush.”

Hopefully, the GOP candidates and their supporters actually listen to Michael Mayo and others who are saying what needs to be said here. The hypocrisy from the right on how the religion and the skin color of any given terrorists affects their reactions is nothing short of astounding. If it’s a Muslim or a person who even appears to be of Middle Eastern descent, conservatives — including presidential candidates — are ready to do the modern equivalent of what the Nazis did to the Jews. If it’s a right-wing, Jesus-loving, gun-toting, anti-gay, anti-abortion lunatic — SILENCE. 

And that doesn’t even begin to address the absurdity of the fact that they won’t even call these acts of domestic terrorism from their own supporters “terrorism” at all. In fact, no one has even called Dylann Roof, the white supremacist who murdered nine people in that historic South Carolina black church a terrorist, when he clearly is.

Terrorism is terrorism, no matter who perpetuates the horrific acts. It really is too bad that the GOP cannot see past their own twisted ideology to understand that.
