The American Human Rights Council (AHRC-USA) strongly condemns GOP candidate Donald Trump’s political rhetoric of anti -Muslim hate and bigotry. Mr Trump’s call for “total and complete shutdown” of Muslims coming into the United States until leaders can “figure out what is going on.” Is blatant racism, a language that feeds extremism and promotes radicalization. Trump’s rhetoric plays right into the culture of hate and violence that the terrorists promote.
AHRC believes that candidate Trump is not “stupid” nor “ignorant” but is callously using current events, shamelessly leveraging fears, to promote his candidacy without regard to morality or basic decency.
“We condemn the callous and morally bankrupt statements of candidate Trump but salute all people of conscience and goodwill who have spoken up against hate and bigotry in these unusually dangerous times,” stated Imad Hamad, AHRC Executive Director.
