Alternate FACTS

I see the Republican leadership keeps trying to use the murder of unarmed muslim worshippers in Quebec by a 'white' Canadian born man from long term residents of North America as a reason to stop more Muslim imigrants from coming to the USA.

I suppose if you do not let them in then the North American murderers will not be able to kill more Muslims but reading what they are saying it seems they are just spouting more 'Alternative FACTS'


"A new radical Islamic terrorist has just attacked in Louvre Museum in Paris. Tourists were locked down. France on edge again. GET SMART U.S," Trump wrote.

Why no tweet about six Muslim Canadians murdered, Tapper pressed Conway.

"He doesn't tweet about everything, he doesn't make a comment about everything," she said. Conway said Trump is "sympathetic to any loss of life," and that the White House is "sad" about what happened.

Tapper noted that a list the White House issued of under-reported attacks did not include any white, non-Muslim suspects, such as Bissonnette.

"Are these victims any less dead than the ones killed by Islamic radical terrorists?" he asked.


Martha Crenshaw, a senior fellow at the Center for International Security and Cooperation at Stanford University, said it's strange that Trump's spokespeople are using Quebec City to justify the travel ban, given who the victims and suspect are.

"There is a disconnect that is difficult to explain," she said. "This example is exactly the opposite of the case you are trying to make about where the threat comes from."

Most attacks in recent years on American soil have been carried out by legal American residents, said Crenshaw, who has studied terrorism for 30 years.



And now Republican leaders are claiming they have to crack down on crime 'because of the high crime rate' when the crime rte in the USA has been falling for years.

Theu seem to just spout anything with no regard to actual FACTS Ignoring those FACTS and just repeating what they believe.


Always the problem when you just believe something that is counter to the FACTS you do  the wrong thing in the wrong way to the wrong people. Ignoring FACTS is therefore just wrong.
