Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
Alexis de Tocqueville
I've not seen many people, save for some of the most militant athiests, argue that Christians are as evil as muslims because of the crusades. What I've seen is people make the suggestion that Christianity can be USED for evil and can be twisted and has had its black eyes of barbarity similar to what Islam has by pointing to the Crusades, the Inquisition, the Witch Trials, and onwards. Which is an entirely legitimate argument and speaks more towards the ability for religions to be misused by culture and societies seeking to have a tool to manipulate people into evil things rather than speaking to the inate "evilness" of a religion.

It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
Here is a very fine and difficult line. We are fighting a war on Terror in Iraq, Afghanistan, and a few other places. One of our potential war zones is Iran. The most common characteristic in almost all cases is that the Islamic religion cannot be separated from the people, the war or the terrorists. It is integral. Because of the nature of Islam, those countries are virtually 100% Islamic and the religion is a central part of the reasons for conflict. It is impossible to discuss what they do, why they do it and how to combat them without the religion coming into discussion.
