    Republican Leadership Speak Out Against Trump’s Proposed Muslim Ban

    Republican Leadership Speak Out Against Trump’s Proposed Muslim Ban

    “This is not what we stand for.”

    Monday, Presidential hopeful Donald Trump called for, “complete and total shutdown of Muslims entering the United States.”

    Republican leadership spoke out against Trump’s remarks Tuesday.

    “I do not comment on what’s going on in the presidential election; I will take an exception today,” said Speaker Paul Ryan. “This is not conservatism. What was proposed yesterday is not what this party stands for and more importantly, it’s not what this country stands for.”

    Speaker Ryan continued:

    “Not only are there many Muslims serving in our armed forces, dying for our country, there are Muslims serving right here in the House working everyday to uphold and defend the Constitution. Some of our best and biggest allies in this struggle and fight against radical Islamic terror are Muslims, the vast majority of whom, are peaceful, who believe in pluralism and freedom, democracy, individual rights. I told our members this morning to always strive to live up to our highest ideals, to uphold those principles in the Constitution on which we swear every two years we will defend. That’s why we are here and that’s why we are going to stay here in the People’s House and do the People’s work.

    Speaking to the Washington Examiner Tuesday, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus also condemned Trump’s proposed Muslim ban:

    Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus on Tuesday condemned Donald Trump’s proposal to ban all Muslims from entering the United States.

    “I don’t agree,” Priebus said. “We need to aggressively take on radical Islamic terrorism but not at the expense of our American values.”

    It’s bad enough that Trump runs around proposing such absurdities as serious policy solutions, but the consequences are even more aggravating.

    We’re already dealing with an unserious administration who thinks the weather is a greater threat than militant Islam. Having Trump on the other end of the seesaw it makes near impossible any substantive conversation on protecting the homeland.

    Thankfully (and finally), Republican leadership is vocally righting the ship.

    The GOPe stands for something besides lining their pockets?

    Almost two-thirds of likely 2016 Republican primary voters favor Donald Trump’s call to temporarily ban Muslims from entering the U.S., while more than a third say it makes them more likely to vote for him.

    Note 2/3’s support for Trump’s temporary ban on Muslim immigration despite the pollsters trying everything to talk supportefs out of supporting Trump and 36 hours of non stop media and brain dead GOPe bashing of Trump’s common sense plan.

    Ryan and the GOPe can be described using the words and insight of Col. Ralph Peters in his description of Obama “TOTAL PUSSIES”.

    BTW, Trump polling at 38% in SC AFTER “the ban press release” is UP 8% over prior Fox SC poll…

    Read it and weep Ryan you giant dip stick.

    When it comes to Ryan and the GOPe cowards who couldn’t wait to run to the microphones and genuflect to the left wing media by denouncing Trump’s very reasonable and limited temporary ban, the words of Col Ralph Peters for President Obama come to mind.
