One the same day Donald Trump called for a " total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States," Muslim-Americans included, he also called for shutting down the internet because we are “losing a lot of people to it.” Never mind free speech, those who would cite the First Amendment and free speech are “foolish people, we have a lot of foolish people.” Watch Dear Leader as he describes how he would shutdown at the internet.
Trump: We’re losing a lot of people because of the internet. And we have to do something. We have to go to see Bill Gates and a lot of different people that really understand what’s happening. We have to talk to them, maybe in certain areas closing that internet up in some way.
Somebody will say (in a mocking tone), oh, freedom of speech, freedom of speech! These are foolish people. We have a lot of foolish people. We have a lot of foolish people.
Dear Donald, the only foolish people in this country are the ones who are keeping you ahead in the Republican primary polls. Dragging the United States closer to Chinese and North Korean internet policies will most certainly NOT make America great again.
The DailyDot.com has the full text of the statement:
We have kids that are watching the Internet, and they want to be masterminds. And then you wonder why we lose all these kids, they want to be masterminds; they're young, they're impressionable, they want to join ISIS.
And we have our anchors—I think I've got 'em mostly stopped, have you noticed that, they don't say it as much—but they say, the 'young mastermind', oh he's brilliant. I don't think he's got a high IQ. In Paris, I called him the guy with the dirty, filthy hat. 'K? Not a smart guy, a dummy. A mastermind? Bing bing bing, starts shooting everybody.
The press has to be responsible; they're not being responsible. We're losing a lot of people because of the Internet. We have to see Bill Gates and a lot of different people who really understand what's happening and maybe, in some ways, closing that Internet up in some ways.
Somebody will say, 'Oh, freedom of speech, freedom of speech.' These are foolish people, we have a lot of foolish people. We've got to maybe do something with the Internet because they're recruiting by the thousands, they're leaving our country, and then when they come back, we take them back.
'Where were you?' 'I was fighting for ISIS.' 'Oh, come on back. Go home, enjoy yourself.' When they leave our country and they go to fight or go to ISIS, they never can come back.
