Khan Owes Apologies to Trump, the Military, and the Country



Not only should Khan apologize, but also all of the people who spread and continue to spread Khan’s false accusations should apologize

Khan Owes Apologies to Trump, the Military, and the Country


By  —— Bio and Archives August 9, 2016

Khizr Khan, the father of the war hero, owes apologies to Donald Trump, to the American military, and to the American people, far more than Trump owes apologies to Khan. This article expands on what the African-American neuroscientist Ben Carson said on CNN, as published in Mediaite
Carson pointed out that Khan slandered Trump, but Carson didn’t elaborate. This article elaborates and supplements what Carson said.
First of all, Khan accused Trump of being anti-Muslim, racist, and anti-women. These allegations were rebutted in many places, including an article that I wrote that was previously published at Canada Free Press
Trump has already refined his proposed policy to screen out potential infiltrators from ISIS and other terrorist groups by TEMPORARILY restricting the inflow of people from countries that have a significant presence of terrorists, so Trump is not opposed to Muslims per se, and evidence he is not opposed to women or African-Americans is also clearly a matter of public record.
Also, as discussed elsewhere, Trump did indeed call Khan’s son a hero, and his only negative comment about any of the Khans was a flippant comment about Khan’s wife that appears to have simply been intended as a dig at the fact that Muslims often keep their women out of the limelight, while Trump respects women’s right to be seen and heard, and gives them more executive jobs than he gives men, contrasted with Hillary’s record of harassing women who accused Bill Clinton of unwanted advances.
Most importantly, as to the accusation that Trump didn’t sacrifice his son, neither did the Clintons serve in the army or sacrifice their daughter; furthermore, Trump’s big mistake was to claim that building an empire was a sacrifice when Trump actually did make sacrifices himself, perhaps even more than Khan the father of the soldier. Khan’s son enlisted; not Khan the father, so the sacrifice was actually that of Khan’s son, not Khan. But even as to Khan’s son, when he enlisted, he didn’t expect to die, although he knew it was a risk (although his heroism later, in battle, is beyond dispute) but when Trump entered the presidential race, he knew for sure he would be sacrificing millions of his own dollars for his public service, he would be sacrificing his time and energy, he would be taking away many hours of himself and his children that would otherwise have been devoted to making money for themselves, and enjoying the life of the rich and the famous, and he put his own life at risk and the lives of his children, who all became targets of hate-mongers as a result of Trump’s candidacy and false accusers, and Trump is sure to lose a lot of business and to find it harder to get permits etc. as a result of the lies against him alleging suddenly that he is a racist etc., when until he ran for office he was considered relatively mainstream, so in sum Trump sacrificed and continues to sacrifice a lot by running for president; these are all clear and certain sacrifices.
Khan the father also had a record of advocating Sharia law in writing, which trumps the Constitution in his mind, so his public advocacy of the Constitution at the Democratic convention may have itself actually been fraudulent. Furthermore, the Constitution allows Congress to regulate immigration, and it has been pointed out elsewhere that ultra-liberal Presidents Roosevelt and Carter were far worse than even Trump as falsely portrayed, by not merely preventing certain non-Americans from entering the country in the time of war, but even interning those who were already here, and Carter even expelled Iranians after a single incident involving Iranians, while Roosevelt prevented Jews from entering the country during World War II even when a boatload reached our shores, and this act of prevention was not a temporary matter (as Trump’s proposal) but a clear and obvious death sentence when the Jews were shipped back to areas controlled by Hitler.
  • Khan the father has ties to the notoriously anti-democratic Muslim Brotherhood.
  • Khan the father made a living out of processing the immigration papers of Muslims, so his anti-Trump tirades were tainted by a conflict of interest.
  • Khan the father worked for a law firm with ties to the Clintons, another conflict of interest.
  • Khan the father caused many veterans to mistakenly be conned into believing that Trump insulted veterans, when Trump did not, thereby cutting unfairly into a significant segment of Trump’s base.
Because of Khan’s slandering of Trump with all the false accusations referred to above, in the context of the information alluded to above, Khan was a significant factor in Trump’s post-convention slide, which could cost the election to Trump, which would not simply be a loss to Trump, but also a loss to the military, the veterans, and the country, since Clinton has clearly proven she cannot be trusted with national security secrets, let alone national policy; she and Obama can’t be trusted to identify, let alone to fight and root out Islamic radical terrorists effectively;
Not only should Khan apologize, but also all of the people who spread and continue to spread Khan’s false accusations should apologize. If any don’t – and almost all won’t – all Americans should at least consider what Khan said in context, and then adjust their attitudes toward Trump accordingly.

Hillary would let even more radical Islamic terrorists into America than Obama has done, with a failure to vet them properly coupled with a failure to close all borders effectively; she would give more rights and benefits to criminals than to many law-abiding citizens; America’s military has been depleted during the watches of Obama and Hillary, causing our soldiers to be in greater danger than otherwise when sent to war, and America is generally seen as less trusted than ever by its allies and more coddled than ever by its adversaries. Just mention the countries of Israel, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Libya, and Turkey, for starters – or non-starters.
Not only should Khan apologize, but also all of the people who spread and continue to spread Khan’s false accusations should apologize. If any don’t – and almost all won’t – all Americans should at least consider what Khan said in context, and then adjust their attitudes toward Trump accordingly.
