The Democratic National Convention hosted a full line-up of unforgettable performances. From Sarah Silverman to Ilyse Hogue to the true main event, DNC’s Trump hating golden dad-ace in the hole-show stopper-in your face Republicans-Khizr Khan, who spoke of his son and how he served America on the battlefield and lost his life fighting the injustices of the world-none of whom are called Radical Islamic Extremists, because as he told CNN, terror “Has nothing to do with Islam.”
Collectively and silently we take a moment to recognize and honor any and all of our fallen soldiers, because they’ve earned our respect and gratitude.
Collectively and not so silently let’s take a moment to reflect on what Khan had to say. He used his time on the stage to attack Donald Trumps temporary ban on Muslim immigration to America, but not to talk about his son’s heroics battling radical Muslims and ultimately being killed by radical Muslims.
Khizr Khan, the bereaved father of fallen soldier Capt. Humayun Khan who attacked Donald Trump last week in a speech at the Democratic National Convention, told CNN’s Jim Acosta Sunday morning that terror has “nothing to do with Islam.”
Here is Khan’s full quote (emphasis added):
In addition to this, there was in the speech that my good wife asked me to refrain from saying, I wanted to say we reject all violence. We are faithful, patriotic, undivided loyalty to this country. We reject all terrorism. She asked me not to say that because that was not the occasion for such a statement. We say to his ignorance, I address his ignorance, that the dirt effect, the most effect of the menace of terrorism have been Muslims in the world, Muslims hate this menace of terrorism as much as any other place. It is our duty to keep this country, our country, beautiful country, safe. We have always thought of [it] that way, we will continue to do our part to keep it safe and beautiful. What he cites in the name of Islam, and all that — that is not Islam at all! I wish he would have, somebody would have put something in his head that these are terrorists, these are criminals, these folks have nothing to do with Islam.
Then he actually asks Trump, a naturally born citizen, and Republican nominee for the Presidency of the United States if he has read the constitution, of his own country.
