Right-Wing Activists Praise Trump’s Plan To Ban Muslim Immigration

December 8, 2015

Frank Gaffney of the Center for Security Policy, the group who put out the bogus poll of Muslim-American views that was cited by Donald Trump in his press release calling for a ban Muslim immigration, appeared on Breitbart’s Sirius XM radio show today to defend Trump’s proposal.

Gaffney, like Trump, promotes birther conspiracy theories along with bizarre claims that Muslim Brotherhood and Sharia law advocates are taking over the U.S. government and both political parties, touted his poll as “an insight into how the Muslims that we polled felt and it’s worrisome.”

“Fortunately, Donald Trump, like you, I’m not endorsing him, I’m not speaking of his fitness, I’m just saying that in response to events that have taken place in this country and elsewhere in recent months has recognized what I think most Americans recognize, that we don’t actually want more jihadists in this country,” he said, insisting that Americans “don’t think augmenting them willy-nilly in the name of some kind of sense that they are entitled to come here is a sound policy.”

He continued: “We have called for a moratorium on the introduction of still more Muslims, particularly from countries with a tradition of Islamic supremacism.”

Gaffney wasn’t alone. Fox News pundit Todd Starnes also defend the GOP presidential front-runner plan:

So the answer is to allow unfettered Muslim immigration — and just pray nothing happens?

So defending America’s borders makes you a bigot, now?

Ann Coulter joined in on the fun:

As did David Brody of the Christian Broadcasting Network, who lauded Trump’s courage:

Here is the truth whether you like it or not:@realDonaldTrump is only candidate to have the bravery to put out that statement on Muslims

— David Brody (@TheBrodyFile) December 7, 2015

Earlier @TheBrodyFile called Trump's statement on Muslims "bravery." On second thought let's call it "guts" or "moxie." Still bold move

American Family Radio host Bryan Fischer said Trump is merely advocating what he called for years ago:

My call to suspend Islamic immigration came 4 1/2 years before Cruz, Paul, and Trump. https://t.co/EIRt4h7rmt

Conservative columnist Diana West called it a “perfect” plan:

Perfect. Trump says what any commonsense American is thinking and political class/commentariat freaks out. https://t.co/38z53dJzTM

John Nolte of Breitbart offered a more unusual defense:

Left/Media pretend to care about religious liberty for Muslims. Christians will be forced to buy rubbers & participate in gay marriages.
