Mr Trump’s Idea is Ugly

Mr Donald J Trump proposes that all Muslims should be barred from entering the United States of America until the US authorities can figure out Muslim attitudes to the USA. If his idea became law then it would probably mean a permanent ban on Muslims entering the USA; I do not know what the “the” Mr Trump means by “Muslim attitudes to the USA” and I doubt if he knows what he means. It is a classic use of language to obfuscate meaning and latch onto to prejudice and engender mass hysteria.
Mr Trump’s idea is simply the first step on a path trodden by the late unlamented Adolf and many others. His idea is fittingly ugly.

  1. Is it really Mr Trump who is using mass hysteria and fearmongering? I rather thought it was the religious murderers killing ‘unbelievers’ in the name of their prophet.

  2. On the subject of the floods ‘up north’

    On 13th March 2012, Julia Slingo told MPs that the low winter rainfall this country was experiencing was caused by climate change. A newspaper reported: “Slingo told the MPs that there is “increasing evidence in the last few months of that depletion of ice, in particular in the Bering and Kara seas, can plausibly impact on our winter weather and lead to colder winters over northern Europe”.

    She added that more cold winters mean LESS WATER, and could exacerbate FUTURE DROUGHTS. “The replenishment of aquifers generally happens in winter and spring … a wet summer does not replenish aquifers.

    In a newspaper report from 2014 she said:

    “Speaking ahead of the release of a government report on Britain’s unusually stormy winter weather, the Met Office’s chief scientist, Dame Julia Slingo said on Sunday that the U.K. had seen the “most EXCEPTIONAL PERIOD OF RAINFALL in 248 years”and called the extreme weather “consistent with CLIMATE CHANGE”.

    “All the evidence suggests there is a link to climate change,” she said. “There is no evidence to counter the basic premise that a warmer world will lead to more intense daily and hourly rain events.”

    SO, in the two years between 2012 and 2014 the effects of global warming (aka climate change) reversed from cold dry winters to warm wet ones. Dame Julia did a volte face.

    Q.Why does no one question her judgement?

    A. Because climate change nonsense has become a religion. Facts no longer matter. Only belief. Sacrifices are part of the routine. Higher fuel costs etc, not because they work but because they inflict discomfort. There is a deep part of our evolutionary nature which tries to appease the forces of nature. If the appeasing is demonstrably ineffective we just make greater sacrifices.

    Hair shirts anyone?
