In his book, The Field of Fight: How We Can Win the Global War Against Radical Islam and Its Allies, Michael Flynn, the retired lieutenant general President-elect Donald Trump has picked as national security adviser, proves to be more than a little intense.
1.He thinks "Radical Islamists" — a term he uses to include everything from the Iranian government to ISIS — are working with anti-US regimes around the world...including Cuba.
2.He thinks saying "Radical Islamists" will fix everything.
3.He is really, really sure of that point.
4.He thinks the US was founded upon Judeo-Christian ideals and that people want to impose Sharia law and upset all of that.
5.He is "not a devotee of so-called political correctness."
6.He spends a lot of time wondering why Muslims don't win Nobel Prizes in the sciences.
7.He thinks the US should bomb terrorists even/especially when they're with their families.
8.He thinks President Obama and other policymakers are wrong for repeatedly insisting that "Islam is a religion of peace."
9.He doesn't believe in "Islamophobia."
But in an administration where the president-elect has called for banning Muslims from entering the country, Flynn is sure to fit right in*.
