Much of what I am about to say has been or will be said on conservative radio today. Outside of that, you likely will not hear any of it on social media, the mainstream news, or in liberal blogs. This is primarily due to the fact that liberals, as a group, are incapable of thought and fact based argument. You may consider that a broad based accusation. I consider it simply, the truth.
So let’s start with the notion of racism. If liberals were capable of thought they would understand the fact that selecting people originating from specific countries is not racism. If it is anything it would be nationalism. The thing the affected people have in common is their nation of origin, not their race.
Next, let us consider that no one has been “banned”. A moratorium has been placed on immigration from 7 nations, which were identified by the Obama administration and voted on by Congress to be placed on a list of “Countries of Concern”. These are all nations known to harbor terrorists and/or sponsor terrorism. The decision to implement a system whereby immigrants and visitors from these nations are more closely scrutinized is a sound one from a security perspective.
“It’s a Muslim ban!” No snowflake…it’s not. If it were a Muslim ban there are 40 more predominantly Muslim nations which would also be on the list. They are not.
“It’s Unconstitutional!” This one makes me laugh. Not because I think violations of the Constitution are funny, but because I think hearing it from people who sat silent while Obama violated the constitution is funny. For instance, people are up in arms about Trump’s proposal to deport around 2-3 million criminal illegals. Meanwhile Obama actually did deport 2.4 million illegals, and no one said a word. Explain that…
What’s truly sad is to hear members of Congress say that what Trump is doing is illegal and unconstitutional. The President has the authority to set immigration policy. Just like Obama could decide to jack up the number of refugees coming in, Trump can decide to lower it. It’s pretty simple and clear cut. You don’t need an advanced degree to get it.
Lastly, no one has a right to enter this country. Not even you, snowflake U.S. citizen. Once you leave you are subject to being allowed to return. You can be pulled aside, questioned, have your bags inspected, etc. And you may not be sent on your way until Customs and Immigration are content with your presence. So the notion that a non-citizen has some sort of “right” to come here is comical.
It’s sad that liberals would rather put the safety and security of their fellow citizens in jeopardy than appear mean to immigrants. But, as Europe is finding out, when you cast open the door and allow middle-eastern immigrants/refugees from war torn, terror prone, nations to enter…you get the war and the terror along with them. This is not a knock against the people per se. it is simply an acknowledgement of reality. Portions of the UK, France, Germany, and others, are learning this lesson as we speak. As rapes, other crimes, and terrorist acts, increase across Europe. As people with one way of thinking, which has no regard for women or basic human rights, move into and occupy land historically occupied by people with a diametrically opposed set of values.
It’s very simple when you boil it down.
Many people from these nations believe it is okay, in fact ordained by God, to treat women as cattle. They believe homosexuality is a crime. They believe that Allah is God, Mohammed his prophet, and Sharia his law. They do not accept, and will not accept, western culture and values. Period. Not all of them, but many of them. We need to know which is which.
You may agree or disagree with various policies put forward by the Trump administration. But there is no argument that we need to properly vet ANYONE coming into this country. Especially those coming from areas known to be terrorist enclaves.
This is just plain old common sense.
Which is why liberals don’t get it.
