Republican presidential candidate and frontrunner Donald Trump continues to outline his plans for an expanded and robust police state, should be become the next president of the United States.
Over the weekend, Trump commented that he would reauthorize the use of what law enforcement call “enhanced interrogation techniques.” That includes the use of torture methods like waterboarding, which Trump says is necessary in order to protect Americans from terrorists.
“When the Syrian refugees are going to start pouring into this country, we don’t’ know if they’re ISIS, we don’t know if they’re a Trojan Horse,” Trump said in an interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos.
“I want to see a database and other checks and balances. We want to go with watch lists, we want to go with databases, and we have no choice,” the tycoon continued.
“It could be the great Trojan Horse of all time. When I look at the [immigration] line,” he added, “I see all strong powerful men. And I see very few women, and I see very few children. There’s something strange going on. And if you look at what’s happening in Europe, a lot of bad things are happening in Europe.”
Stephanopoulos explained to the out of touch 1%er that the vast majority of Syrian refugees are actually women and children.
Trump was not swayed with any noticeable empathy.
So Stephanopoulos asked whether Trump would specifically support waterboarding, which President Barack Obama banned after it’s use under the Bush administration.
“We have to be strong,” Trump bullied. “You know, they don’t use waterboarding over there, they use chopping off people’s heads, they use drowning people.”
“I would bring it back, I think waterboarding is peanuts compared to what they do to us,” he continued. “I would absolutely bring back interrogation and strong interrogation.”

This would be the new “normal” under the Trump administration – law enforcement tortures first, and determines guilt later.
TAKE A STAND against STATE TORTURE – help us SPREAD THE WORD!
