“(President Obama) denounced Republican candidates, including Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)
and Jeb Bush, who propose that the United States should primarily focus on accepting Christian refugees, criticizing Obama’s unwillingness to address the threat of terrorists coming overseas as refugees. “That’s shameful. That’s not American. That’s not who we are. We don’t have religious tests to our compassion,” he said angrily.”
President Obama focused his anger on those Leaders in Congress, and jeb, who are calling for a prioritization of efforts to expedite refugee status for Christians coming from Syria.
Mr. Obama “…cautioned political leaders “not to fall into that trap” of refusing to accept refugees, and to “not to feed that dark impulse inside of us.”
It’s worth noting makeaneffort cannot find an example of the outright refusal of accepting refugees being implemented or even suggested by any Leaders in Congress, or jeb, we will take the President at his word it must be happening.
Exploring the President’s point regarding the horrid blackness that poisons men’s minds…
Can you imagine what it would have been like if the United States had prioritized evacuating Jews from Germany in the 30’s when they were being systematically left to die in cattle cars, crushed in showers and forced to breathe poison gas, or being shot on sight? Or if the United States had committed the sin of focusing their efforts to save Political enemies of Communism from the Soviet Death Squads who fertilized the Steppes with 10’s of Millions of those who disagreed with Forced March FORWARD! to the Socialist Utopia?
Indeed Mr. Obama, moving groups of people to the front of the line who are being specifically targeted for Death is a Dark Place to go. At this point in History it happens to be Christians, Jews and Homosexuals. If this desire to do so doesn’t prove once and for all that Republicans are Evil, I don’t know what does.
We should stand with the President and refuse to make such considerations. In fact, we should look past the overwhelming number of military aged men who make up the vast majority of ‘refugees’ flooding the Western Countries of the World. Some Leaders in Congress, and jeb, have Shamefully suggested these young war fighting aged men be given additional scrutiny before allowing them to roam freely throughout the United States. But we must stand strong with our President and steadfastly refuse to make any inquiry into why metrics related to the groups of refugees demonstrate such clear Racism and Misogyny.
Bare in mind, if terrorism breaks out due to the policies of this Administration they will finally have the impetus to disarm all of us.
Never let a good crisis go to waste…
Particularly when you’ve spending so much time and energy creating it.
