    Trump supporters seem to hate muslims, Mexicans and the like, Sanders supporters hate intolerance, racism, sexism etc..Consider the muslim woman with a headscarf who wore the peace shirt in a Trump rally and got kicked out, they clearly hate those certain people rather than the ones supporting them, it's a matter of skin colour.
    Trump supporters dislike ILLGAL immigration. Also, it was a private event, she should have been kicked out and was part of a larger protest group (a protest group that wears yellow stars to symbolise Nazis).

    Morning Consult is an extremely biased polling website. I have seen those as an American, and they have ads like "Do you hate Obama, take a few polls here!". So I doubt the validity of this...

    This discussion is irrelevant since the proposal in question would violate:
    • Article 2 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights
    • Articles 2(1), 20(2), and 26 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights
    • Articles 3 and 4 of the Convention relating to the Status of Refugees
    and probably more international law besides...

    The USA doesn't respect many international laws (juvenile justice, torture, etc.). They won't be stopped by international laws.

    Then the rest of the world must gather together to invade the USA so that they obey UN conventions.

    Banning Muslims from the country is far more logical than Cruz's idea. Cruz really is a complete ****. What are those patrols going to be equipped with? Extremism detectors? The only way Islamism is going to end is if there is a change within their own community. Cruz's idea will just intimidate Muslims and make them feel they need to defend themselves. Banning Muslims is a pretty OTT idea but at least it would stop Muslim citizens going off to fight with IS and then coming back into the country. How you would be able to assess whether people coming into the country for the first time are Muslim or not is a far more difficult question though. If you could do it though, it would make the USA safer, and that's the truth of it. It's a bugger for those 99% of Muslims who aren't terrorists, but it would help to prevent attacks.
    Cool dude. Let's stop all white people entering cinemas and schools. It's a bugger for those 99% of white people who aren't shooters but it sure would help prevent attacks.

    They wouldn't get shut down if Trump didn't use such divisive language, and blatantly racist policies

    Anyway, his supporters are more violent than the protesters
    Stop victim blaming!

    We are reaching 10% of Muslims... My lifelong socialist parents would happily vote for such a ban, so you can guess that it would be almost universal among right wingers. Hollande had a sudden rush of popularity in November when he ordered to close some radical mosques.
    People hate Muslims in France; in comparison, I'm surprised at how tolerant the UK is towards Muslims.
    I'll voice this very opinion for other parts of continental Europe in which I have lived. I still find it surprising how tolerant the British are towards Muslims (far more tolerant than any Islamic country is towards kaffirs but that's another topic :rolleyes:)

    Such a ban would get 90%+ support in eastern Europe.

    The issue I have with this statement, though its easy to say, is that its very impractical as its not going to differentiate between fundamentalist Muslims, normal Muslim, cultural Muslims, ex-Muslims, people other religion who look Muslim, and Muslims who look very white...

    For example Sikhs "look Muslim"... If the immigration system contains intelligent people who can differentiate religion, then one may have a point - but this is 'Murica land of the free, home of the brave!

    Do you have evidence to suggest that all Americans are unable to differentiate between Muslims and non-Muslims based on appearance? Or are you also guilty of the very thing you are criticising them of being? (e.g. bigoted)
