Trump Test

Harmless yet effective
  (+1, -5)
(+1, -5)
  [vote for,

At all ports of entry, at the passport check, at each desk, place a copy of the Qu'ran.

Each prospective entrant is asked to place their right hand on the book and is then asked, "Are you a Muslim ?"

Non-muslims will of course answer "no" except for the occasional troublemaker.

Muslims will answer "yes"; if they deny it, they are guilty of apostasy, and under Sharia law are subject to death by stoning.

If they answer yes, then there is a supplementay question, "Do you intend to engage in any actions detrimental to this country ?" or words to that effect - the lawyers will come up with something.

Answer "no", and proceed with thanks. Answer "yes", and get turned away.

But the best bit is that true jihadis won't be able to lie. If they lie, they deny their faith (bring out the bags of big, heavy, pointy stones). And it will mess with their heads something rotten.

Cheap, non-intrusive, non-discriminatory ... and effective.

       Thanks for making this one so obvious even I could notice it.

       We already have a "Do you promise to uphold the Constitution" test when they're sworn in as citizens. They just lie.   

       I do agree though that we should have some say in whether or not people from any stipe get let in who intend to do harm to this country and its people. But the Democrats need to import people who'll do the jobs Americans aren't willing to. Like vote Democrat.   

       Of course the Republicans are no better. They need cheap labor to keep labor prices down. God forbid we should pay a living wage to the people who mow the lawns in front of our mansions.

       You seem to be assuming, [8th], that these jihadis are religious. They are not.

       "Well, we ask people, 'Are you the enemy? And whoever says yes, we shoot them. It's very difficult to find a Vietnamese man named Charlie. They're all named Nyugen or Doh or things like that. It's very difficult for me."   

       I suggest that you try something more proactive, like burning a cigarette into its pages, to gauge their response.

       Just sit them in a room with a bowl of Matzah wafers baked with a Qu'ran image and tell them, "If you eat these within 10 minutes we'll give you twice as much to go, and you get the recipe to make them at home."   

       Okay, lame, but you do want a forwarding address and phone #.

       8th be sure you have a copy saved of your sundry contributions to the HB, in case the jihadis delete your account like poor 21q.
