No, Reince Didn’t Advocate for a National Muslim Registry

No, Reince Didn’t Advocate for a National Muslim Registry

“We’re not going to have a registry based on a religion.”

The media’s obsession with a national Muslim registry continues.

Former RNC Chair and incoming White House Chief of Staff, Reince Priebus joined Meet the Press Sunday morning. Host, Chuck Todd asked Priebus whether the next administration is toying with a national Muslim registry.

NBC News then ran with this headline:

Sure, Reince said, “Look I’m not going to rule out anything,” which he immediately followed by saying, “We’re not going to have a registry based on a religion.”

Full quote:

“Look I’m not going to rule out anything,” Priebus said. “We’re not going to have a registry based on a religion. But what I think what we’re trying to do is say that there are some people, certainly not all people… there are some people that are radicalized. And there are some people that have to be prevented from coming into this country. And Donald Trump’s position, President Trump’s position is consistent with bills in the House and the Senate that say the following: If you want to come from a place or an area around the world that harbors and trains terrorists, we have to temporarily suspend that operation until a better vetting system is put in place.”

Was NBC News intentionally stoking the xenophobic hysteria? Sure seems like it. Why else would they run a headline with a partial quote that misrepresents the whole of Reince’s statement?

I think Cruz has one of the better plans.

Of course they were.

Meanwhile, the kiddies at Reddit noticed that a Bloomberg editor made up a tweet by DJT out of thin air.

What used to pass for our news media has spent the last several decades using political opinion as a hiring criteria. They have created a very self-satisfied echo chamber that is now throwing an unseemly fit. That fit is on public display because citizen journalists are now capable of fact-checking news article, and angry enough to be inclined to do it.

    I have to put part of this on W. (but just part of it) For decades now, whenever the media or the Democrats talk (censored) about Republicans, or make things up, we have been told to just ‘take it’ and not complain. Republicans pass a bill increasing student lunches for less money than the Democrats wanted, and the Dems scream about ‘starving students.’ If the Republicans dare to fight back, the left goes start-raving bonkers, so in order to get along, we go along.

    Now we have Trump.

    Is there any doubt that if Vice President Cheney had been booed at a popular play and specifically called out by the cast in a finger-waving monologue afterwards that W would have simply ignored it? I may not like him very much, but every once in a while the US needs a Grant.

      I’d prefer a Reagan, who would have used this incident as a teaching opportunity, and done it with grace, humor, and efficacy.

Liars have to lie and NBC definitely falls into the liar category. Perhaps Mr Z should put NBC in is ‘fake news source’ category since NBC has proven itself unreliable WRT the truth.

Keep digging, MSM. There’s another presidential election in four years, and I’d like to see you bury yourselves before then.

Intentional misrepresentation of a political opponents statement….seems like Fake News to me.

“Look I’m not going to rule out anything,” Priebus said.

“We’re not going to have a registry based on a religion.

So, he is going to rule out something. Too bad he didn’t say so right off.

They’re looking for a sound bite, and he gave them one … the wrong one.

Priebus is going to have to sharpen up his act if they’re going to let him talk to the press.

Islam is a religion? Since when?
