It’s unfortunate Sunday has to begin with this. I’m well aware that this is possibly THE most divisive issue, even among readers who drop by here.
This woman Donnelly:
… an Obama SC appointee from 2015, has blocked the deportation of two jihadis.
Were they of Anglo-Saxon, Caucasian stock, then you’d want to know why – maybe visas but when it is this ethnicity, religion, madness takes over among the left. You’d never hear a word about the Caucasians, only these.
That, for a start, is unbalanced, to say the least, disproportionate attention. Then it is the deliberate ignoring of facts in order to push the emotion. Here’s an example:
I was outraged by the ban on refugees from war-torn countries in the Middle East. I’ve covered refugees fleeing war in Iraq and Syria over the last two years, meeting families on the road in Greece, Serbia and Macedonia, speaking to poor people in Turkey and Jordan and discussing the hopes and fears of people displaced in Iraq. If you want to ban “terrorists,” these are the last people to hit with a refugee ban. Instead the government should be using the best intelligence possible to find people being radicalized, some of whom have lived in the US their whole lives or who come from countries not affected by the ban, such as Saudi Arabia or Pakistan.
Trump has not ‘banned’ Muslims, not yet. He has called a 90 day halt, in order to be able to process the hordes. This ‘processing and intelligence’ the writer speaks of – yes, that is precisely what the halt is about – to enable that to happen. If the left would just stop with the emotion and think for one moment!
‘Hordes’ is an emotive term, as is ‘jihadi’. The reason I chose ‘hordes’ is this sort of thing:
There is much reportage [not MSM] that there has been lax vetting of the type. Examine the faces – how many stressed infants and women do you see? All men of fighting age. There have been many shots on Twitter of the schools and training camps over there and they start from infancy to learn how to fire weapons, how to stab infidels. That’s not fantasy, it’s fact.
Sa-udi and other nations there have refused to take them in. Their own brother nations and they refuse to take their own sort of people in. They insist alien nations thousands of miles awayh take them in.
Now why should that be? Why should such a mass of young men be coming in? This is where the blockage in the leftist brain really has to be removed.
There may well have been a peaceful, quiet community of Muslims until a decade ago but that’s not the issue. The issue now is that these are blended in with the peaceful and there is no way of knowing, first off, who are benign and who are not.
This therefore is the job of border control.
And that’s why 90 days is a minimum amount of time to start processing. However, the processing officers are appointees who would agree with the leftist policy of not vetting, not doing their jobs, except in a cursory manner. They’ve done it for years. Many are Millennials. So even if ordered from the White House, these officers can easily refuse to do their duty – who is going to check on that?
This is the major issue. And it’s expressed well here:
And it takes time. Anything from government takes time to do properly.
If you removed the word ‘Muslim’ from the equation and inserted any word for some other religious/ethnic group in those numbers who are coming into your country, their leaders with the avowed intent of overthrowing your society, I’d wager there would not be anywhere near this outcry. Only with this particular group.
In the States, there is a second group down south but that’s a different issue.
Bottom line is, for all the left wail and howl, there is a huge number in our society who are deeply concerned about this. Were that not that number, then Trump would not have been elected and Brexit would not have happened. There are certainly those who wanted withdrawal for economic reasons but not in the north which carried Brexit.
Some may well be racist in the strict sense of the term but most would be offended to be called that. Seeing the issue in the terms expressed in this post is anything but racist, it is safeguarding the people of the land, especially the women and girls. And for good reasons the left know very well exist.
And that was the mandate Trump was elected on. Not only on that issue of course but it was part of it, a very large part of it, though the left refuse to admit it. Turn it around – those pussy heads two Saturdays ago, to be fair – there were many of them. Though a small percentage of the overall population, still – fair’s fair and there were large numbers. They are concerned about something. We are not but they are.
So the minimum position is to say, ‘Yes, we see you are saying that and what you think but a majority say you are in error.’ And at this time, majority is the only way to determine policy. That’s if you wish to apply the word ‘democratic to yourself’. The electoral college circumvents that dispute over who scored the majority, which is by no means settle science at this time.
Now let’s look at May. In the U.S., there was a Union Flag [UK] behind them. Where is it here? Is May unaware? Or is she more than aware but is doing it anyway?
