Quote# 124066

Two brothers who support President Donald Trump argued over the weekend that the president was right to place a ban on travel from seven majority-Muslim countries because Jesus Christ is “the reason this country is here and safe today.”

In an interview with NPR that was published on Sunday, brothers Tim and Bill Jackson of Elizabethtown, New York called on Americans to give the president a chance.

“You know, I mean, everybody [is saying] he’s signed this, he’s signed that,” Tim opined. “It’s only been a week.”

“I’m sick of people who just stand by,” brother Bill agreed. “Now that someone’s gone in there and stirred the waters up, boy them Democrats are pissed. They’re trying to come up with every way they can to push him down.”

The brothers also linked Trump’s travel ban directly to Christianity.

“I feel that if a Muslim woman wants to move into this country, she needs to leave her towel home,” Bill explained. “Because the reason this country is here and safe today is because of Jesus Christ.”

He continued: “We were one nation under God. The Muslims are into Allah. They can’t live there [in their home countries] anymore because of all the turmoil and unrest. Here we still have somewhat peace. So if you’re going to come here to enjoy this peace, follow our rules and be one nation under God. Or stay home. I’m not making you change your religion, or whatever you want to call it, your belief. But if you want this, what we want, then you got to do what we’re doing to get it.”

Bill also disagreed with the notion that the Constitution gives Americans the right to worship the god of their choice.

“That is something I believe that has come along with political correctness and all this other garbage,” he insisted.

I'm sick of people who just stand by... unless they subscribe to a different political party/belief system than me!

I'm not making you change your religion! I'm just demanding you not practice it at all in public or anywhere people might see!

*sigh*

"Two brothers who support President Donald Trump argued over the weekend that the president was right to place a ban on travel from seven majority-Muslim countries because Jesus Christ is “the reason this country is here and safe today.” "

Is Jesus from one of those countries on Trumps list?

"Bill also disagreed with the notion that the Constitution gives Americans the right to worship the god of their choice.

“That is something I believe that has come along with political correctness and all this other garbage,” he insisted."

Holy Fuck. Fundies usually at least pretend to be for religious freedom.

Trump has had his chance. Not yet a fortnight in office and he's issued numerous unconstitutional orders, not to mention that he is using an unsecured phone, and his staff are using private email servers. You know, the same thing you idiots think that Hillary should be thrown into prison for.

"You've got to remember that these are just simple farmers. These are people of the land. The common clay of the new West. You know... morons."

This Idea though “Because the reason this country is here and safe today is because of Jesus Christ.” , fucking brainwashed and the educational system couldn't fix it. This ideas got to be knocked out of the American psyche, the fucking Bible and church are NOT THE BASIS of your laws and freedoms.

Thomas Jefferson would like a word with you morons.

And why should I care what these two morons think?

Your 'Emprah' has fucked up; little ob#ver a week after he was sworn in.

'Give him a chance', you say? I thought Donald Fart was supposed to be perfect; he could do no wrong as far as you're concerned?

He fucked up.

It's open season on that subhuman. He deserves everything he gets via the media/political commentators/comedians/satirists. No Mercy.

And like he & his failure of an 'Administration', you clearly haven't read your Constitution.

Unless you worship the Native American deities, your Abrahamic 'God' has no right to exist in the US.


...oh, and in b4 'But MUH CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS!': Q.E. and fucking D.

So these two don't understand other religions nor first amendment. Pretty much like every other fundie out there.

1/31/2017 10:25:52 AM



Oh and likely these two would not let Jesus into their country if he tried to get in considering what he would actually look like.

any person who can hitch the length and breadth of the Galaxy, rough it, slum it, struggle against terrible odds, win through and still knows where their towel is, is clearly a person to be reckoned with.

Why did NPR interview these two ? Are they the only ones capable of speaking into the right end of a microphone ?

We gave him a chance, and he blew it completely when he appointed an alt-right amisogynist white supremacist whose stated goal is to 'burn the nation down" to an influential post as advisor to the president.

@chicken:Almost certainly.

Insult to Rocks

She needs to leave her towel at home.

But Douglas Adams told me that towels are one of the most important things to take when you leave home!
PS. Fuck off, you bigoted bastard.
