In addition to his consistent blurring of the bright line between people of the Muslim faith and terrorists who cloak their destructive actions in terms of Islamist extremism, Donald Trump recently suggested that Muslims aren't doing their part to prevent tragedies like the nightclub massacre in Orlando.
"We have to form a partnership with our Muslim communities," Trump said during a speech at Saint Anselm College in New Hampshire. "We have Muslim communities in this country that are great [but] ... they have to work with us, they have to cooperate with law enforcement and turn in the people who they know are bad. And they know it. And they have to do it and they have to do it forthwith."
Blechhhh. This is just lazy thinking.
And it's not even new thinking — in the years since illegal-immigration hysteria has been on the rise, Hispanics have been cornered by people angry about illegal immigration with accusations that they, personally, have failed to address the problem.
