Trump’s campaign staffer accused of being anti-Muslim for calling 9-11jihad supporters “murderous thugs”


Talking Points Memo has wrongly accused Matt Wolking, a staffer on President Donald Trump’s political campaign, of being “anti-Muslim”. This is yet another demonstration of a continued pattern of attack against those who call out obvious truths and worst, a twisting of their words .




TPM accuses Wolking of describing Muslims as “murderous thugs,” which stems from a post he wrote arguing that a poll showing that seven percent of Muslims supported the 9/11 attacks was alarming and not defensible.




9-11 jihadists, along with those who supported them “completely” are indeed “murderous thugs” who have declared war on Americans in the name of Islam. This certainly does not mean that Wolking described all Muslims as “murderous thugs” as stated by Talking Points Memo.




Wolking responded to the article on Twitter, stating:




This Talking Points Memo headline is a lie. In 2008, Gallup published a survey about the world’s 1.3 billion Muslims. Gallup reported that 7% of respondents said the 9/11 attacks were “completely” justified. If you condone the 9/11 attacks, what other description is there?




To understand the significance of that poll, 7% of 1.3 billion Muslims equals 91,000,000. Therefore 91 million Muslims believe that the 9-11 attack on innocents was “completely” justified. That number is two-and-a-half times the population of Canada. It is an alarming statistic.




“Trump Campaign Staffer Attacked for Calling 9/11 Terror Supporters ‘Murderous”, by Charlie Spiering, Breitbart, May 11, 2019:




Talking Points Memo blog published a list of smears attacking a staffer on President Donald Trump’s political campaign after establishment media organizations passed on opposition research pushed by leftist Super PAC American Bridge.




The Talking Points Memo (TPM) article published Friday accuses Matt Wolking, a deputy director of communications for Rapid Response for the Trump campaign, of writing anti-Muslim comments on his personal blog in college.




The blog, “Wolking’s World,” featured mostly scraps of news followed by commentary and analysis, commonly found on blogs before the Twitter era.




TPM accuses Wolking of describing Muslims as “murderous thugs,” which stems from a post he wrote arguing that a poll showing that seven percent of Muslims supported the 9/11 attacks was alarming and not defensible.




Commenting on an article on the results of a Gallup poll of Muslims, Wolking criticized the tone and wrote, “They still can’t get around the fact that over 90 million Muslims are murderous thugs, a conservative estimate considering all of those who would rather not go on record as supporting terrorism, especially to a Western polling company.”
