Rick Perry said in Monday’s South Carolina debate that Turkey may have been taken over by “Islamic terrorists” based on their ruling Islamic party. The answer came in response to a question over whether Turkey should remain a NATO ally, which Perry said was a conversation worth having.You can read here about Turkey's "Islamic terrorist" ruling party, which has been working to bring Turkey into the European Union ... because that's their terrorist plot! And here about their prime minister and his achievements while in office ... which are suspicious for their utter concealment of his terrorist agenda!
“Obviously when you have a country that is being ruled by what many would perceive to be Islamic terrorists, when you start seeing that type of activity against their own citizens, then, yes,” he said.
“Not only is it time for us to have a conversation about whether or not they belong…but it’s time for the United states, we look at their foreign aid, to go to zero with it.”
... The Turks retort. Money shot: "Indeed, Turkey is a strong and growing trading partner with the U.S. in general, and with Texas in particular, creating thousands of jobs throughout that state." Why is Texas providing material support to terrorism?
