When will Donald Trump denounce Islamophobic robocalls?
WGBH - 01/13/2016
The Reverends Emmett G. Price III and Irene Monroe joined Jim Braude and Margery Eagan on Boston Public Radio for their regular Monday feature, All Revved Up. “The message was kind of sickening,” Price said. “But I appreciate that we live in a country that has freedom of speech. I think the challenge is, we’ve raised a number of generations where people don’t interrogate ideology. So yes, the robocall is fine. People don’t have to believe that, but when you take it to believe that this is something that is fair and equitable and democratic, then I have a problem.”
According to Price, the problem is more with impressionable voters than with Trump himself, as Trump hasn’t endorsed the group. But does his silence speak volumes? “He enables it,” Monroe said. “While he’s an equal opportunity offender, he never said, ‘look, this is not what you do.’”
