Amal Clooney, the British-Lebanese human rights attorney who has been married to Hollywood actor George Clooney since 2014, says populist GOP frontrunner Trump doesn’t represent “U.S. values.”
BBC interview Monday evening, the 38-year-old criticized “the leading candidate on the Republican side” for proposing “building walls” and a temporary pause on Muslim immigration into the United States. She then paraphrased Trump and defended Muslims who she says are “not extremist or violent.” “If you actually look at what [Trump] specifically says in that now infamous speech about Muslims, he kept saying, ‘They only want jihad; they don’t believe in our way of life; they don’t respect our system,’” she said.
She continued: “And when he says ‘they’… And, you know, you watch the media coverage afterwards and people should’ve been saying, ‘Do you mean the 1.5 billion people around the world who fit that description? Do you mean the people who are U.S. citizens, who are members of your military, the vast majority of whom are not extremist or violent in any way?’” Her mother is a Sunni Muslim. Amal Clooney added she is “perplexed” by the success of Trump’s campaign.....To Read More....
My Take - How would this British/Muslim know what constitutes American values? I'm tired of hearing leftist foreigners coming here, enjoying the fruitage of our culture and then tell us what our values are or should be. As for Trump's statements - those are generalizations, and generalizations aren't meant to reflect positions of every single individual in a group - but generalizations can reflect the overall views and attitudes of a group, and Muslims in overwhelming majorities everywhere in the world support jihadists emotionally intelletually. Just because they're not throwing those bombs personally is immaterial - "they" are a true reflection of what it means to be a Muslim! And what's going on in Europe is more than overwhelming evidence of how extreme Muslims are, how intractable "they" are, and how unwilling they are to assimilate. Islam means "submission" and they mean for the West to submit....why is that so hard to get....or perhaps she chooses to ignore reality in order to support her insane views?
One more thing. What does she think would happen to her, with her life style, if Sharia law was imposed on the U.S., or wherever she's living? I keep reading how smart these people are, but I keep wondering why is it then they say so many stupid things. Clooney derserves her. The stupid and arrogant should be together.
These lunatics want open borders and the extensive migration of Muslims from all over the world to the U.S. but that is no way reflective of their hypocritical personal lives. Get this:
"As Breitbart News has extensively reported in the past, the Clooneys have taken extensive measures to ensure they have privacy and security at their homes, including their $10 million Lake Como estate in Laglio, Northern Italy.
Roberto Pozzi, mayor of Laglio, issued an ordinance in 2015 to protect the solace of the couple and their property. The area surrounding the estate is now off limits to unwanted guests, and anyone who gets too close to the property faces a stiff fine.
One local fisherman complained of the ordinance, saying he could no longer park his car in the area while fishing.
“I used to be able to leave my car here on the ramp leading down to the water, but now I can’t—I’d get fined by the police,” fisherman Livio de’ Angeli said. “You’re not allowed to park anywhere near the villa and you can’t take a boat within 100 meters of the house. It’s like living in a mini dictatorship.”'Yes, "they" are a reflextion of the ongoing hypocricy of the left. Not to mention "their" unrelenting stupidity!
