Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Michael T. Flynn, a registered Democrat who has been offered the position of National Security Adviser to President-elect Donald Trump, believes “Islam is a political ideology” that veils itself as a religion, and is unique in that sense because he does not “see a lot of people screaming Jesus Christ with hatchets” or guns “shooting up clubs” or “literally axing families on a train.”
In a speech before the Dallas, Texas chapter of ACT! For America in August, Lt. Gen. Flynn said, “Islam is a political ideology, it is a political ideology. It definitely hides behind this notion of it being a religion.”
“And I have a very, very tough time because I don’t see a lot of people screaming ‘Jesus Christ’ with hatchets or machetes or rifles shooting up clubs or hatcheting, literally axing families on a train,” said Flynn.
“Or like they just killed a couple of police officers with a machete,” he said. “I mean, it’s unbelievable. So we have a problem.”
