About the only thing Donald Trump says that is more offensive than his constant promises to deport all Mexican immigrants is his other guarantee of what he will do if he’s elected President: not allow any people of the Muslim faith to enter the United States for any reason. In case you’ve forgotten, here’s exactly what Trump announced back in December of 2015:
As it turns out, Trump’s Muslim ban was quite popular with some, including Jim Stachowiak, who decided to hold a “United against Islam and Islamic immigration refugees” rally near the Capitol building in Atlanta, Georgia. When all was said and done, a grand total of one person showed up in support of Stachowiak and his cause.
Stachowiak, it should be noted, is a huge fan of the Donald, saying just last week:
‘I support Donald Trump because I like his agenda on dealing with the threats to this country — his ban on Islamic immigration.’
Immgrants who pratice Islam, Stachowiak added, are nothing but an “invading horde or army.” One wonders if Stachowiak would apply that same line of logic to the European settlers who came to North America and nearly eliminated every Native American on the continent.
In addition to the rally, Stachowiak also urged those who agreed with him and wanted to participate to come fully armed as a way of fully expressing their rights under the Second Amendment to the Constitution. For that reason, Capitol Police Director Lewis G. Young had notified all employees who work at or near the Georgia state capitol. Capitol police also noted:
‘DPS is currently monitoring the threat risk and, together with GBA, is taking precautions to make Capitol Hill a safe environment.’
As it turned out, extra security was not required, as is plainly seen from the images in these tweets sent out by some who came just to watch and see if Stachowiak kept his promise to shred a copy of the Qur’an and a photo of the Prophet Muhammad.

Stachowiak did indeed rip a copy of the Qur’an, but he then told media members in attendance:
‘We’re not against Muslims.’
According to Stachowiak, his “group” is only worried about Islamic extremists, and have no beef with “Joe Muhammad down the street mowing his yard.”
