Yeah, they're rubbing it in our faces and the political leadership of this country (i.e., that bunch in the White House) is primarily a bunch of limp dicks who specialize in whining and complaining about the previous administration.
And isn't it at all acceptable to be xenophobic towards an idea - we engage in it all the time with religion and politics - as opposed to the people themselves ?
I know it can be a bit like trying to pick the fly shit out of the pepper. But then again, muslim is not a race - it's an ideology. They only become conflated, when considering how to separate the two.
