Finally, a politician admits the truth about why he wants to start using waterboarding again!
“… and if it doesn’t work, they deserve it anyway for what they do to us.”
That was Donald Trump on the campaign trail in Columbus, Ohio. I've been writing for a while now that the real reason Republicans want to bring back waterboarding is to inflict pain and suffering and I asked if somebody would just admit the truth already.
We all know that torture doesn't work for information so the point of becoming a torture nation is to inflict a type of biblical justice. Plain and simple. I wish they would just say that already.
Trump finally admitted the truth on why he wants to bring back torture.
Donald Trump touted the benefits of waterboarding in a campaign rally on Monday night, telling a crowd that “you bet your ass” he would bring it back into use.
Addressing thousands of people in Columbus, Ohio, the Republican frontrunner praised waterboarding, an interrogation method that has been called torture. “I would approve more than that,” he said.
Trump told supporters: “Would I approve waterboarding? You bet your ass I would. In a heartbeat. I would approve more than that. It works.”
The Republican frontrunner then added “… and if it doesn’t work, they deserve it anyway for what they do to us”.
There you have it. The bloodlust of the modern GOP is palpable and Donald isn't afraid to preach about the most vile topics to them because the rabid right wing base hates everything and everyone and wants justice for their grievances.
Syrian refugees haven't done anything to us at this point, but what the hell, right?
