- Terrorist label frustrates Muslim community in the woods
By MICHAEL HILL, Associated Press - Monday Oct 2, 2017
ISLAMBERG, N.Y. (AP) — If Islamberg truly is a hotbed of jihad, a heavily armed terrorist training ground hidden in the woods of upstate New York, it's hard to see along the rutted dirt road winding through the Muslim community.On a recent day, women in hijabs carried babies on their shoulders and two visiting state troopers passing through the front gate were greeted warmly. Teenage boys in brimless caps walked by modest homes, and stray chickens pecked at the grass. The scene is more country road than backwoods bunker.But this enclave just west of the Catskill Mountains is dogged by terror accusations, many spread on right-wing websites.
- Twitter reacts to Trump’s transgender military ban: ‘Don’t take us backwards’

President Trump shocked the LGBT community on Wednesday when he tweeted his decision to ban transgender people from the United States military, prompting politicians, media members and other influential figures to express outrage. After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow… Victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail. Trump Bans Transgender People From US Military 'In Any Capacity' Human Rights Campaign president Chad Griffin was quick to respond: “I know transgender service members and vets who have done more to serve their country than @realdonaldtrump has in his entire life.” New York Magazine reporter Olivia Nuzzi quoted Trump’s tweets and wrote, “This is actually German for ‘I don’t want to talk about healthcare.'” Many people are resurfacing a tweet then-candidate Trump sent in 2016 when he promised to “fight” for the LGBT community. Thank you to the LGBT community! I will fight for you while Hillary brings in more people that will threaten your freedoms and beliefs. With your ban on trans people from the military, you are on notice that you just pissed off the wrong community. transgender people show more courage when they leave their fucking houses in the morning than donald trump has shown his entire life Bone-spurs Trump doesn't have a fraction of the courage & patriotism of the transgender people he is banning from service. [...] a POTUS who understands the concept.
