From an article on Michael Flynn at Politico:
(CNN)Donald Trump's pick to be national security adviser, retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, called Islamism a "vicious cancer inside the body of 1.7 billion people" that has to be "excised" during an August speech.
Flynn, who has called Islam as a whole a "cancer" in the past, made the comments during a speech to the Ahavath Torah Congregation in Stoughton, Massachusetts. Video of his speech is available on YouTube and was reviewed by CNN's KFile.
"We are facing another 'ism,' just like we faced Nazism, and fascism, and imperialism and communism," Flynn said. "This is Islamism, it is a vicious cancer inside the body of 1.7 billion people on this planet and it has to be excised."If you think his comment is extreme, considering the comment from Bono which has been in our sidebar for years now:
"I WANT TO BE VERY, VERY CLEAR, HOWEVER: I UNDERSTAND AND AGREE WITH THE ANALYSIS OF THE PROBLEM. THERE IS AN IMMINENT THREAT. IT MANIFESTED ITSELF ON 9/11. IT'S REAL AND GRAVE. IT IS AS SERIOUS A THREAT AS STALINISM AND NATIONAL SOCIALISM WERE. LET'S NOT PRETEND IT ISN'T."
