You Irelandian peoples are racist!
He is so, so ignorant!
Which begs the question of why O considers Mosques so sacred?

Wow...Is he trying to start a riot??
I can’t stand it.
But we should have many madrasas, right?
No doubt Georgetown will extend him an immediate invitation to be their next commencement speaker.
Whatever happened to diversity? It’s divisive now?
