National Security BEFORE Political Correctness.

SteveHayes has recently addressed the issue of a country protecting its interests, and I'd like to get my two pesos in on this matter, too.  I am soooooo tired of a-holes who don't know the difference between being a country that allows those from other nations in, and just letting ANYONE stop by.  I see morons carrying signs saying "We're ALL immigrants."  Sigh.  I hate it when people don't, or rather, refuse to think things through.  Yeah, people can come here from all over, but in the end, it's the United States government who decides who can, or cannot come in, legally.  So, for example, protecting our border(s) is not some terrible thing.  I don't know of ONE person who has said that no one from Mexico and other countries south of the border, should not be allowed in.  As far as the "Muslim ban" is concerned, why the frick NOT?  American liberals want us to believe that all religious beliefs are equal, and that everyone from any place in the world, is equally qualified to enter America.

 

BS

 

Look, this is not about religion, although it does certainly enter into it.  It's about bringing people in who accept principles of freedom.  Why would America want to allow those who treat their women poorly, hate gays, and hate Jews, into the country?  Liberals seem to think that every nation is equal, except, of course, the United States, which is the source of all evil.  Facts do not interest them.  They don't CARE about the havoc that Muslims have created in Great Britain, Germany, and other places in Europe.  Amazing.

 

Who gets in, and who doesn't, isn't complicated.  Bring IN those who will assimilate, and keep OUT those who won't, and fundamentally don't like the United States Constitution.  Traditionally, my country has benefited from immigration.  People from all over have brought their traditions, music, art, food, etc. over here.  But their loyalties were to their new home.  When I see morons during "demonstrations" waving the Mexican flag, I get sick.  And the more Muslims that come in, the worse this disconnect with America and other nations that are silly enough to let them in, will be.  You don't have to be a student of history to know that the diffence between how Americans and those from the Middle East, look at the world is wayyyy different.  We need people who will appreciate freedom, and not just those looking for a different climate, or better cable reception.

 

The Trump administration is telling everyone that their ban is not a ban on Muslims.  Whatever.  I'm saying that a ban on Muslims is a GREAT idea!  If that makes me a bigot, so be it.  This "religion" is centuries behind the times, as are its adherents.  Only two or three Muslims have ever won a Nobel prize in science, although there are, what, a billion of them?  But there have been nearly two HUNDRED Jews who've picked up the hardware.

 

Muslims should be kept out of America, IF they want to become citizens.  And even if it's just a "visit" it's completely within the authority of the president and our government, to keep an eye on who is coming over here.  I get that most Muslims are not terrorists, but these days, most terrorists are Muslims.  That's not an opinion.

 

I don't expect everyone to agree with Trump about immigration policy.  But this BS about him being Hitler, or some dictator, is over-the-top, but that's standard for the "tolerant" liberals of today that won't make arguments, but instead engage in smear tactics, because they don't HAVE arguments, and they know the media will cover their sorry butts.  Americans with sanity need to stand UP!  If someone gets on Trump at work, disagree with them.  It's not necessary to get into an enraged argument, but to remain silent is unacceptable, except in certain obvious situations.  Most Americans support Trump's policies on immigration, but if you watch the news, you'll get a totally different impression.  Making a jerk out of yourself in the streets of our cities, is NOT a reasoned argument.  National security comes before political correctness, and putting America first isn't some awful thing.  I expect Canada to put their interests first, and the same is true of all nations.  There's no reason the United States should have to cower to anyone.  We can negotiate in good faith, but in all negotiations, even if it's just buying a car, both sides want what's best for them.

 

And that's it for now.

      I am extremely pleased with how Trump is proceeding, far more than I ever dreamed!

    It’s not about Muslims or Islam, it’s not even about Christians or Yazidis, it’s about locking the damn door until we can trust our methods of vetting those who seek entry, then unlocking it for welcome guests, acceptable refugees & trade goods. It’s that simple, I lock the door to my home because I don’t want my things “walking out” & I wish to decide who enters myself… that’s the very essence of the 4th Amendment & it’s certainly an extensible right the nation enjoys when dealing with other nations & their nationals.

      We have refused “immigrants” before. Wet feet dry feet comes to mind.

    All true. I do think there’s some things about the Muslim culture that America needs to be extremely wary of.

      Yes, and anyone with an ounce if intelligence would understand this! We can’t have, nor will it be tolerated, unfettered immigration. We absolutely must have a better vetting system, and immigration should be limited!

      & a couple things we could adopt, their position on usury comes to mind… okay one thing.

    I’m a liberal, by your definition, we both know this. I AM against the current presidential ban based on countries with muslim majority populations. Oh, don’t get me wrong, I’m just as afraid and worried about attacks on this country by the radicals of all races, creeds, religions who think killing a bunch of us at a time will……………..accomplish something, further their desires and needs and beliefs. It won’t, it only pisses us off, that’s been proven, but, I fear it because it results in the loss of innocent lives. I HATE that. It pisses me off.

    Trump’s ban on immigration from seven countries IS based on religion. There is a law against that. But, yes, there is also leeway for the president to ban in the name of national security. It’s a complicated issue for sure. I want security, but I also want America to be…………..what I believe it to be…………a country that welcomes others, has power BECAUSE we don’t languish and die in what WAS, but invests our future in what COULD BE, what is possible.

    I’m a liberal, according to you, and I’m not sure just what I think, yet, of this newest development.

      I don’t care if it is a ban on Muslims. I would welcome that, too. They treat their women poorly, hate gays and Jews. And those that say that Christians aren’t perfect miss the point. Christians aren’t pushing gays off buildings, or demanding their women dress a certain way. The religion of Islam is more of a cult than anything else. Its adherents tend to prefer Sharia law over the Constitution. The members of Islam, for the most part, don’t assimilate. All anyone has to do is look at what is happening in Germany, Great Britain, and Sweden. These people come to other countries and expect to change government, and the customs of its citizens. We’re talking about a largely humorless lot who put their religion above everything. I don’t want people like that in my country. Let them go to countries where Islam rules, rather than thousands of miles across an ocean to a place they don’t even LIKE!

        Well, we disagree on that point. Oh, I’m perfectly aware that I don’t like or agree with the way women are treated as Muslims, it’s true. It pisses me off. But, there are also plenty of God-fearing Christians that hate gays and Jews and black people, too. So…………………six of one, half a dozen of the other when it comes to people and religion.

        I, chuckle, live in a housing division where the least expensive home is $209,000 and I, a white female, am in the minority on my block. I find it strange, but not unacceptable or a basis for being mad or hating. But, just because I don’t “get” someone else doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be where I am. Hell, they don’t “get” me.

        I struggle with my initial suspicion and “you’re different from me so get out” reaction, I do. But, at some point, all of us, have to deal with living outside of the bubble we create for ourselves. This world has over 7 billion people in it and we really should try to find some way to live with each other besides – if you’re not like me, go away.

          You need to learn the word “degree.” Yes, there are Christians that hate gays and Jews, but not in the same DEGREE that Muslims do. It sure isn’t six of one and a half dozen of another. Not even close. Talk to people who’ve visited Middle Eastern countries. These are very intolerant people in the ME, and they don’t change once they come to America. And while very few are terrorists, there’s a lot of support for those who are. Many believe the Paris shootings were just. And I don’t even understand what “we really should try to find some way to live with each other….” means. Sounds nice, but I have no clue how to get along with those who hate the American way of life. Countries in Europe have rolled out the welcome mat, only to be told that THEY had to change to accommodate Islam. When you come up with a way that will ensure different groups will get along, let me know.

            Oh, please don’t misunderstand, I KNOW the definition of “degree” and how it is applied. It’s just that the Bible doesn’t have “degrees”, just “this is right” and “this is wrong”. Now, we humans live with “degrees” of wrong and right, I know that, and we try to reconcile our humanity and our belief. THAT is what I was discussing.

    A ban is a permanent thing this is not a ban but a hold until the parameters are determined. It is not Muslim ban but a hold on group that has within it a portion that is inimical to others of differing thought or tradition until we can determine between them, sort of like a new virus that we haven’t determined a reliable way of diagnosing.

        yeah that seems to be the “shelf life” of many things labeled “government programs”

    Even the Foreign Minister of the United Arab Emirates has stated that it is not a Muslim ban. He pointed out that most Muslim countries are not mentioned and that the seven countries mentioned do have serious difficulties with terrorism and security.

    Whatever it is, it’s important to keep certain people out of free countries.

      Many on the extreme left seem to be trying to force others to be blind to the importance of this.
