Many people who fully acknowledge America’s role in undermining democracy worldwide — still do not want to wake up to a terror attack on our soil, nor would they believe that an attack on American soil would make American foreign policy more just and fair.

The problem is that if one of Donald Trump’s disciples who honestly believes that all Muslims are probably guilty of something — if such a person were to decide to genuinely investigate what the “other side” believes, most such “pro-Muslim” information exists in sarcastic, pop-culture memes and quips and sharp-witted insults against all things alt-right. There are very few places for a Donald true-believer to go and get informed, were such a person to wake up with a desire to see what our world-view is.
