Further claimed: “Islam is a political ideology. It is a political ideology. It definitely hides behind this notion of it being a religion...It’s like cancer. You know, I’ve gone through cancer in my own life. So it’s like cancer. And it’s a like a malignant cancer, though, in this case. It has metastasized.”

Tweeted that “Fear of Muslims is RATIONAL.”

Dared “Arab & Persian world ‘leaders’ to step up to the plate and declare their Islamic ideology sick and must B healed.”

Tweeted a story that implied there are no “moderate” Muslims: “The term ‘moderate Islam’ is ugly and offensive.”

Claimed progressives are racist: “I’m on my soapbox right now, and I’m sorry, but you’re gonna see, and you’re gonna hear, words like, ‘Donald Trump’s dangerous,’ ‘Donald Trump’s a racist.’ But you know who the racists are? The racists are those in the progressive movement. The dangerous elements are those in the progressive movement, those that want to change this country into something that it is not, something that it was never created to be.”

Claimed of Muslims: “Islamism, it is a vicious cancer inside the body of 1.7 billion people on this planet and it has to be excised.”

Insisted that some human beings are “illegal,” not undocumented.
