Dear Muslims

Dear Muslims, Donald Trump is not a representation of the United States. We Americans tend to be ignorant, but we know that one does not represent the majority.

Recently, Donald Trump called for a ban for all Muslims to enter or travel to the U.S. He also had a silent protestor, who just happens to be Muslim, removed from his rally. She is seen at the rally wearing a shirt that says “Salam, I come in peace.”

Outrage isn’t even the word. Not only is he discriminating, Trump is removing this woman of her free speech.

He commented on the commotion at his rally.

“There is hatred against us that is unbelievable,” Trump said. “It’s their hatred, it’s not our hatred.”

Outrage isn’t even the word. As writers and advocates for free speech, the Spectator staff has no words.

His comments gear towards the idea that he is doing America a favor. What favor? Demonstrating hate? Racism? America is known to be the home of the brave and the land of the free. When did this stop being our staple?

“Until we are able to determine and understand this problem and the dangerous threat it poses, our country cannot be the victims of horrendous attacks by people that believe only in Jihad, and have no sense of reason or respect for human life,” said Trump.

Every time Trump speaks his racist and bigoted views shine bright. First, he had a problem with Hispanics, now he has a problem with Muslims. Sooner or later, he’s going to have no one but himself.

America is more than hate.

We are the melting pot of the world.

We are the strong.

We are the fearless.

We are everything that Donald Trump is not.

So, dear Muslims, don’t let the Trump’s views deter you from loving and living your life here in America.
