    it’s a hard lesson to learn about how bad muslims are and religious fanatics in general, but to be fair it could of been a lot worse. hopefully old obama doesn’t try to bring any of those muslim refugees in here to the usa, bc muslims are nothing but trouble…

    Note to Herbert: All flagpoles in Utah should have a clearly marked “Muslim Atrocity” setting for future use.
