How Sick IS It that the US has a Socialist-Islamophilic President?

It's even sicker when the Democrats and some foolish Republicans support his lies in Congress. m/r
June 24, 2016, Abraham H. Miller
Next to the propagation of the big lie, one of the most elementary and common devices in manufacturing propaganda is the notion that the truth is something you are not being told.
From conspiracy theorists to those selling patent medicine on the Internet, everyone who whispers the words “secret” and “mystery” is using this device.
But what happens when you already know you’re not being told the truth? The psychological impact is that much greater. Your normal inclination to be taken in by conspiracy theorists is all the more heightened when you know you are not being told the truth.
That is what President Obama and Attorney General Lynch achieved in their clumsy and stupid attempt to redact the transcripts of Islamic terrorist Omar Mateen’s phone calls to 911 as he shot up a gay nightclub in Orlando. Their bungled attempt to manipulate reality now affirms the role of Islam in the shooting. By attempting to change Mateen’s invocation of “Allah” to “God” and redacting entirely his swearing of allegiance to ISIS, the Obama administration has created the opposite of what it intended.
Any doubts that this shooting was inspired by Islam have now been vitiated.  ...
