US Audio Analysis: Trump, Islam, Hate-Mongering, and the Orlando Shootings


PHOTO: Donald Trump is “exploiting more than 100 casualties for a campaign based on fear and hate”

I spoke with more BBC outlets today about Sunday’s mass killings by a gunman who attacked a nightclub in Orlando, Florida.

There was some discussion of the possibility of gun control after yet another massacre — my reply, “not a snowball’s chance in hell” — but a lot of attention was on the exploitation of the deaths by Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump. This is a poisonous cocktail of sweeping statements about Islam being used both for a campaign feeding on fear and hate and to divert from the core issue of the availability of guns in America.
