One of Donald Trump's appointments is National Security Advisor Gen. Michael Flynn, a radical Islamophobe who declares that Islam is not a religion but rather, a political ideology, like fascism, which is at war with us, so we must defend ourselves, against the whole Muslim world.

"One of the highlights of Western civilization were the holy crusades against the Muslims," Flynn said in an interview.

"The knights in shining armor in the 14th Century were engaged in against-the-odds quests to accomplish godly deeds in an evil world. We need to remember the Red crosses on pure white backgrounds on their shields; it sends shivers up my spine," said the new national security advisor.

Flynn concluded, "Today's American forces in the Middle East are fighting a battle against Islam that the Christian crusaders never finished. May god bless them and the United States of America," said the Trump general.
