Purveyor of Truth
Do these nut jobs ever think rationally or are they always dwelling in the land misrepresentation, fear, and political darkness?
THE HILL - A senior aide to the Donald Trump campaign said on Sunday that half a million U.S. girls are at risk for genital mutilation because of uncontrolled immigration.
"You want to talk about women’s issues? Here’s something we should be talking about,” said Stephen Miller. “It is a fact: As a result of uncontrolled migration into this country – you can look this up, it’s a statistic from Equality Now – half a million U.S. girls in this country are at risk of female genital mutilation.”
He immediately faced opposition from the rest of the panel, which included Neera Tanden, the president of the Center for American Progress, who said his comment is an example of the Trump campaign saying “something outrageous.”
The report he cited, issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, states that half a million women and girls in the U.S. are at risk because they were born in countries were female mutilation is a tradition or have parents who were born in those countries.
Quoting a statement from a reputable source such as the CDC when used in the proper context is absolutely acceptable. Quoting out of context for the purpose of advancing fear or misinformation is both disingenuous and unethical. Something Drumpf and his henchmen are most often wont to do.
