Evangelical Trump Supporters Despise Muslim Immigrants for Reasons Having Nothing to do with Terrorism
Evangelical Trump Supporters Resent Muslim Professionals
While Trump Supporters demonize Mexicans, the people they really resent with a passion are Muslim immigrants Despite remarks to the contrary, this has nothing to do with terrorism. But it is about fear. Non-college educated whites are frightened by Middle East and Asian immigrants who are better educated than they. The doctors, engineers, and scientists from the Middle East do not insist that the earth is 5,000 years old nor that evolution is immoral nor that their children should be homeschooled by parents whose knowledge of mathematics and the natural sciences never went beyond high school. In short, Muslim professionals do not face the theological barriers that hold Evangelical Christians back from pursuing medical, engineering and scientific careers.
