Donald Trump, the 45th president of the United States and easily one of the oldest people I follow on Twitter, will likely go down as the Tweeter-In-Chief. From insults dished to other politicians & leaders and ‘fake news’ cries to incorrect grammar and NFL derision, Trump just cannot seem to keep his small hands off of his tiny keyboard. Here are some examples of how you can tweet just like the great leader Trump himself.

1. Insult and name-call powerful leaders with nuclear weapons

2. Provide endorsement for anyone accused of sexual harassment, child molestation, and/or any other heinous and illegal acts

3. CONSTANTLY disparage (mostly) legitimate news sources as ‘fake news’



4. Use someone else’s firing over sexual harassment to promote another agenda of fake news, yet again


5. Promote anti-Muslim / Islamaphobic agendas and propaganda

6. Continually reprimand NFL players for peaceful protesting

7. Talk about how you knew you were going to win, won big, or simply how amazing you are

8. Try to divide parties by aiming the problems at the opposite party

9. Continue to disparage person who ran against you

A word of advice to the Trump administration, change his password and hide it from him or maybe even simply create him an account that does not directly feature his widely known name. Name-calling politicians and leaders like Crooked Hillary, Crazy Bernie, little rocket man, etc. should not be displayed in the tweets of our president, along with all the other crazy and deranged things Trump tweets about.

Unprofessionalism riddles Trump's respectability as a leader and this is viewed all over the world, as he truly continues putting a 'stain' on America. These are tweets dating back from November 2017 until December 11th, 2017, so feel free to go further back than this and provide more examples of how to #tweetliketrump so that we can all navigate the twitter world so ingeniously this coming holiday season.

Islam Is Not A Religion Of Peace, But Neither Is Christianity

Let's have in honest converation about the relgious doctrine of Islam

Islam is not a religion of peace.

Christianity is also not a religion of peace.

But, most people in both religions are generally peaceful.

More specifically, bringing up the doctrine of Christianity is a terrible rebuttal to justify the doctrine of Islam.

That is like saying, "Fascism is not a good political ideology. Well, Communism isn't any good either. So, Fascism is not that bad after all."

One evil does not justify another evil. Christianity's sins do not justify Islam's.

The reason why this article is focused on Islam and not Christianity is the modern prevalence of religious violence in the Islamic world. Christianity is not without its evil but there is far less international terrorist attacks and mass killing perpetrated by Christians today than by those of Islam.

First, let's define "religious killings," which is much more specific than a practicer of a religion committing a murder.

A religious killings are directly correlated with the doctrines of the faith. That is different a human acting on some type of natural impulse killing someone.

For example, an Islamic father honor killing his daughter who was raped is a religious killing. But an Islamic man who catches his wife cheating and kills her on the spot is a murder, not a religious killing. The second man may be Islamic but the doctrine of Islam cannot be rationally held at fault for that killing. Many men with many different religions or experience would make the same heinous mistake of taking a life.

Second, criticizing a doctrine or a religion is not a criticism of everyone that practices the religion.

It is not even a criticism of everyone who make mistake while inspired by the religions. Human are willing to do heinous things when governed by a bad cause. Not every World War 2 Nazis was a homicidal maniac but human nature tells them to act this way in order to survive in their environment. It is hard to fault a person from traits that comes from evolutionary biology and natural selection.

However, commenting on a philosophy, ideology or a religion is not off limits. Every doctrine that inspires human action should be open for review. The religion may be part of a person's identity and it holds a special place in its heart but that does not mean it should be immune to criticism.

Finally, before going into a deconstruction of the myth that Islam is a religion of peace, there needs to be a note about the silencing of talking about Islam.

There is a notion in Western Society that if a person criticizes Islam, then that person hates all Muslims and the person suffers from Islamophobia. That is not the case, a person to criticize religion without becoming Donald Trump. In Western Society criticizing fundamental Christians is never seen as an attack on all Christians because there is a lot of bad ideas in the Bible that Christians act on. Therefore, criticizing Islam should have the same benefit of the doubt because the Quran has many bad ideas in it.

The Quran advocates for war on unbelievers a multitude of times. No these verses are not a misreading or bad interpretation the text. Here are two explicit verses from the Quran that directly tell Followers to engage in violence:

Quran 2: 191-193:

"And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah (disbelief or unrest) is worse than killing... but if they desist, then lo! Allah is forgiving and merciful. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allah) and worship is for Allah alone. But if they cease, let there be no transgression except against Az-Zalimun (the polytheists and wrong-doers)"

Quran 2: 216:

"Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not."

There is no rational way to interrupt these passages in a peaceful way. The whole premise of both passages is to inspire followers that war against the unbeliever is justified.

The first verse advocates for genocide against non-believers for the mere transgression that a society worships a different god or worships another god along with Allah.

The second passage is arguable more dangerous because the first passage just advocate that fighting may be a necessity, while the second passage encourages it. The second passage claims that war on the unbeliever is a good thing under the eyes of Allah.

The reason why these passages are dangerous is because they directly incite religious violence. For most followers of Allah, these passages are ignored or they convince themselves the passages means something they do not. However, for a large numbers of followers that view the text of the Quran as the unedited words of Allah, these texts become extremely dangerous. These passages become all the rational they need to wage war on non-believers.

This is dangerous because there are millions of followers of Islam worldwide that believe every statement in the Quran is true.

Therefore, the Quran becomes a direct motivation and cause for its followers to attack non-followers. Rationally one can understand where the Islam follower comes from, if a person truly believes that Allah or God himself wrote these words then why would you not comply.

Especially when there is verses in the Quran that says the Follower who does not fight the infidel is not as worthy of a Follower that does wage war against the non-believer (Quran 4:95). Finally, when male Followers are told that their martyrdom fighting for the faith will be rewarded with an eternity in paradise with 72 virgins for personal pleasure. If a Follower truly believes all of this is the spoken word of Allah then there is more rational why a person would commit these atrocities then why they would not.

Men and women are radicalized by these passages on a daily basis.

No, it is not just the poor kid in Iraq that lost his family to an American bombing run that indiscriminately kills civilians but also the middle classed Saudi Arabian child or some Western white kid that finds the Quran appealing. If radicalization were just poor people, then society would not have much to be worried about. However, Heads of States, college educated people and wealthy Islamic Followers are all being radicalized and the common dominator is the doctrine of Islam.

Osama Bin Laden, one of the most infamous terrorist in history, was not a poor lad that was screwed by the United States military industrial complex. Bin Laden was the son of a billionaire, that received an education through college from great schools. There is no other just cause for Bin Laden to orchestrate such grievous attacks on humanity besides religious inspirations. A person can rationally tie Islam Followers gravitation towards terrorism to a specific verse. Quran 3: 51 tells readers,

"Soon shall we cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers."

Any rational person can tie Islamic passages like this directly to terrorism. It is not a complicated correlation to like Nazism and Jewish persecution to Christianity. The Holy Book of Islam directly encourages the Followers of Islam to inflict terrorism unto the non-believer.

So why do some many people deny these obvious truths about Islam and violence?

Political Correctness and the want to not be viewed as a bigot. The correlations here are as direct as the terrors of the Spanish Inquisitions and Catholicism and no one is afraid to retrospect and say, "Yes Christianity caused the direct murder of thousands of people". A person would not even be controversial if one stated that both World Wars has significant religious undertones. However if anyone states that terrorism and violence has a direct link with Islam then there is an outcry.

Even President Obama refused to use the terms Islam and Muslim when publicly talking about the War on Terrorism. I am a hypocrite also because I used the term Islamic Follower instead of Muslim in an attempt to sound more political correct.

That is a problem when society refuse to use terms that are correct in an attempt to not offend anyone. Imagine if scientist could not report their findings because the underlying politics. Society needs to be able to have open dialogue about this problem or else it will never heal. Society needs to throw away the worrisome about being politically correct and focus on identifying the problems and solving them.

The world of Islam needs to open themselves up to this criticism.

There can no longer be a closing of dialogue where the West cannot speak on the doctrines of Islam because they are not partakers (That applies to all organized religion too, especially the Catholic Church). People who draw Muhammed must no longer be threatened with attacks on their life.

When Islamic women and men speak up about the sins of Islam, they must stop being silenced. If humanity is going to take steps into the future with better technology and more dangerous weaponry, then we need to solve this problem with Islam and gradually to organized religion at all.

If not it will doom us way before we get there…

I Really Do Care, Melania

Why don't you?

14

If a picture is worth a thousand words, this picture is worth me saying "Fuck you," 500 times.

I really cannot believe this picture is real. I cannot believe that the current administration would be so brazen with apathy and the collusion of destroying families.

I cannot believe that multiple people allowed Melania Trump to put this coat on, walk outside and be photographed on her way to visit a detention center for children. Not one person said, "hey, maybe you should take that (last season Zara) coat off." She was flying from Maryland to Texas where its at least mmm, 90 degrees outside?

"It's a jacket. There was no hidden message."
- Stephanie Grisham, Communications Director for FLOTUS

There is no hidden message. Your message is loud and clear to us. You really do not care how your actions look to Americans. You really don't care about doing things in good taste. And why would you, if you don't respect the people who are looking at you?

The more I stare at this picture, the more I start to understand.

The Trumps do not care about "regular" Americans, least any one from a different country. In the past month we've watched this administration create tension with our allies in order to cozy up with dictators.

The Trumps do not care about you. They only care about money and power. After meeting North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, Trump had this to say:

'He speaks and his people sit up at attention. I want my people to do the same."

Surely, I'm not the only one who is worried by these sentiments?

I can't be the only one who is scared by our dictator-in-the-making.

And I'm definitely not the only one angered about kids being taken away from their parents and held in detention centers with no guarantee they will ever meet again.

This isn't "how it starts." It started when Trump entered office. We're just moving at a pace faster than ever before that we're not sure what stage of holocaust we're at.

The Trumps are yelling loud and clear for the people in the back who haven't gotten it yet: The Trump administration does not care about children and immigrants, and they certainly don't care about you unless you can help them.

Melania, I really do care about the state of our country under this administration. 70% of Americans really do care that you are detaining children away from their parents. And you should too.
