Thought for Today

The following is a post by marieclaire.com with retorts in bold.

“Leave it to Nobel Prize-winner Malala Yousafzai to tell it like it is.

In an interview with United Kingdom’s Channel 4, Yousafzai warned hateful politicians about the danger of their anti-Muslim messages: “The more you speak about Islam and against all Muslims, the more terrorists we create,” she said. A good point—and a terrifying one, too.”

Excuse me young lady, are you telling us to be quiet about the atrocities committed in the name of Allah or else you (Muslims) will create more terrorists?  That is what it sounds like.  It also sounds a little like Hitler’s tactics.  Anyone who spoke out against what he was doing stood to be murdered on the spot or sent to a concentration camp.

She also commented this week more specifically about Donald Trump and his proposal that all Muslims be banned from entering the United States, calling it “full of hatred.”

I have stated many times that I don’t care for Trump, but I detest sophistry even more!  Trump has said that he would ban Muslim refugees from the Middle East UNTIL they could be properly vetted to minimize the chances of letting in more terrorists. 

To those who don’t think we (America) should look after and protect our best interests, I ask you: Do you keep your front door unlocked and open even while you sleep?  Why?  You don’t do it because you want to keep out those who would enter and harm you, that’s why.  Trump is saying we should keep the door closed and locked and then determine who to allow into our house one by one.

Speaking at a memorial for 134 children killed in a Taliban attack on a school in Pakistan, the global advocate for education elaborated: “That’s really tragic that you hear these comments which are full of hatred, full of this ideology of being discriminative toward others.”

That is right young lady; you should stop discriminating against those who don’t think like you.  This type of talk is full of hatred and ideology of being discriminative towards others.
