    This is a thread about the USA and we don't live in the Third World. I know that people of any religious background kill each other in backwards countries.

    I was asking the number of victims of terrorism -- not some vague and undefined "terrorist attacks" (which can be a trash set on fire) -- in the West, or the USA. It's obvious that with 9/11 alone, Muslim terrorism is miles above the rest.

    People like you don't seem to get that there are millions of people that despise what Islam stands for.

    If you started up a cult in which multiple marriages was ok, child marriages was ok, killing anyone who disagreed with your ideals was ok and treating women as possessions was ok then I'm pretty sure in most civilised countries the followers of that cult would be imprisoned and the cult banned.

    Not every Muslim is like that but their religion allows and encourages them to be if they want to. It is a sick perverted religion!
    Much a like Christianity. Hinduism. Judaism.

    can you dumb that down a bit?
    Rural USA is effectively a shithole, destitute and lacking hope and opportunity. The way of life of poor, white Americans from these areas is constantly mocked and is being killed. They are labelled uneducated, bigoted racists; they suffer the same poverty and the same lack of opportunities as ethnic minorities do however they receive none of the sympathy - because no matter how poor or unfortunate your circumstances are, you are told you have 'white privilege' and therefore nothing to complain about. What people constantly fail to understand is that there is a huge cultural/economic divide between those in rural areas and those in the cities. Investment is poured into the cities and drained from everywhere else - opening a local business in a rural town is basically a thing of the past, industries on which local economies were built have ****ed off. These people wanted/needed change and prosperity and that's exactly what Trump's policies offered them (read his policies) - there is a huge emphasis on bringing back industry, he has promised millions of Jobs. Hilary failed because she didn't appeal to the masses which believe or not is not liberal city-dwellers. This coupled with the media spamming us with anti-trump propaganda (attacking personality not policy) -digging up sexists remarks made decades ago (remarks which i don't condone), demonizing him and outright calling those who support him dumb and uneducated; alienating them in the process is why so many people voted trump. We saw it happen during brexit and we haven't learned a damn thing. You do not win people over by insulting their democratic choice - you educate and you persuade by offering, pushing and advertising policies that appeal and matter to them.
