Trump’s Choice for National Security Adviser: Islam Not a Religion

Kurt Nimmo

Donald Trump’s anti-Islam agenda is front and center now that retired Army Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn has accepted the position of national security adviser.

Flynn, the former director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, consulted Carly Fiorina, Scott Walker, Ben Carson, Ted Cruz, and Donald Trump. Earlier this year the Trump campaign thought about running him as vice president but settled on Mike Pence instead.

Flynn has worked with the Center for a New American Security, a think tank co-founded by Michèle Flournoy, the former Under Secretary of Defense for Policy. She advised defense secretaries Robert Gates and Leon Panetta.

Flournoy is a “liberal interventionist,” the Democrat version of a neocon.

She is a member of the Aspen Strategy Group, the Council on Foreign Relations, and the CIA’s External Advisory Board.

“Undersecretary of defense Michele Flournoy is the dictionary definition of a hawkish Democrat,” declared Thomas Donnelly, a neocon with the American Enterprise Institute, a frontline organization instrumental in arranging the invasion of Iraq. Donnelly is also the former deputy director of the now-defunct Project for the New American Century.

Flynn is a staunch anti-Islamist. Even The New York Times characterizes him that way. He will be passing his ideology on to Trump. Like George W. Bush, Trump is a lightweight when it comes to geopolitics.

Flynn doesn’t consider Islam a religion. He says it is a political ideology hiding behind the First Amendment and the freedom of religion.
