RINO John McCain went on the defense, protecting both Islam and radical Islamic terrorism on Sunday, inventing an outlandish statistic that ignores the tens of millions of Muslims in the world that support the Islamic ideal of killing the infidel — anyone who doesn’t adhere to the tenants of Islam.
Appearing on CBS News’ Face the Nation on Sunday with his ideological twin, GOP presidential candidate Lindsey Graham (who is near or at zero percent in all major national polls), the 79-year-old RINO McCain, who has long been in favor of replacing Syrian madman Assad with the radical Islamist terrorist group ISIS to be in charge of Syria, said that virtually all Muslims are peacefully and lovingly serving an “honorable religion.”
First of all, we must set aside the fact that the RINO duo can’t even agree on the name of the enemy — McCain calls them “ISIS,” while Goober Graham refers to the Muslim terrorist group using the Obama-preferred term “ISIL.”
After Face the Nation host John Dickerson perpetuated the media-created myth that Donald Trump said he wanted to register all Muslims in the United States, McCain pulled a number out of his aged posterior to spin that virtually all Muslims are peaceful and loving, while coming eerily close to the Obama narrative that ISIS is really just like a JV team (emphasis added):
JOHN DICKERSON: You mentioned the bloviating of presidential candidates.
How much of an effect, let’s say, Donald Trump, when he talks about registering Muslims in the United States. Does that have any real effect outside of the United States in the fight against ISIS?
JOHN MCCAIN: Well, I think it has an interesting effect of turning Muslims all over the world against the United States of America, which is 99.44 percent people who practice an honorable religion.
And, by the way, the fact is that we can succeed here, and ISIS is not that strong, but the longer they say in power, the more this poison spreads and metastasizes from as far away as Afghanistan, Africa, and other parts of the world.
Of course, Dickerson doesn’t challenge pro-amnesty McCain’s 99.44% imagined number, nor does McCain source the statistic. And while McCain, like the left loves to do, paints Islam as the “Religion of Peace,” the real numbers are nowhere near McCain’s made-up number.
One shocking poll by the Arab Center for Research and Policy Studies found that more than one in ten, a stunning 13% of “Syrian refugees” support the barbaric Islamic terrorist group known as ISIS (aka: ISIL or IS).

As disturbing as that number is, an additional 10% of Syrian “refugees” have only a “negative to some extent” view of of ISIS, indicating at least some level of support. This also indicates that in total, nearly a quarter, 23%, are sympathizers of Islamic terrorism against America and its allies.
Moreover, back in the USA, a 2013 poll from Pew showed that 13% of American Muslims said that violence against civilians is often, sometimes or rarely justified to defend Islam. A 2011 poll from Pew showed that 21 percent of Muslims are concerned about extremism among Muslim Americans. 19 percent of American Muslims as of 2011 said they were either favorable toward Al Qaeda or didn’t know.
In open borders France, the target of the most recent Muslim terrorist attack where over 100 innocent people were slaughtered, a full 16% of French people have positive views toward the barbaric and evil ISIS terrorists.
Like Obama, John McCain is living a delusion. His “99.44%” number is a blatant lie, and it’s shameful that the mainstream media didn’t force McCain to back it up with facts.
