‘RefugeeGate’ Proves The Left Has No Shame, And Little Patriotism

President Trump’s announcement on a temporary ban on refugees and visas from certain countries with a history of exporting terrorism to America and Europe caught a lot of people by surprise. It shouldn’t have. They still haven’t figured out that this is a president who works hard instead of lolling around on golf courses or taking lavish tax payer paid vacations, one who means what he says. The media meltdown and the histrionics from the usual suspects is simply another proof to the American people that most of The Left has no shame, and little patriotism.

President Trump’s executive order temporarily suspends entry by the nationals of seven Muslim-majority countries: Syria, Iraq, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia, and Yemen. It will last for 90 days, pending heightened vetting procedures.The exception is Syria for which there is no time limit.These countries are all failed states, and one, Iran, is a sworn enemy of the U.S. and worldwide sponsor of terrorism. So this is hardly a ‘Muslim ban’, since it only applies to these 7 countries and there are provisions for dual citizenship and special hardship cases. And the 7 countries? They were the same ones named in the Terrorist Travel Prevention Act of 2015, signed by – wait for it – Barack Hussein Obama! Since it was Obama, the media was dead silent about it.Just like they were silent about President Obama issuing orders under exactly the same authority when he unilaterally changed a long standing policy of accepting refugees fleeing Castro’s poverty stricken Socialist dictatorship. Was Obama Hitler then? I guess that was different, at least for the trained seals in the media. Spare me the hypocrisy.

Of course, we also now know the Obama regime made it policy not to vet Muslim refugees in any significant way:

Don’t ask any questions, bring ’em in, give ’em an EBT card, MedicAid and subsidized housing and settle them across the American heartland. That was the plan. Almost 90% of them are still on welfare.

If you want any proof that Obama’s policy to bring as many Muslims into America as possible was based on ideology rather than humanitarian motives, in Fiscal Year 2016, Obama admitted more than 12,000 Sunni Muslim refugees from Syria but fewer than 100 Christian refugees from the same country. This is even more striking because while Muslims actually have some safe refugee havens they can go to, Christians and Yazedis in the Middle East have none, and cannot even safely access most refugee havens because they will simply become prey for the Muslims already there. Obama made it almost impossible for the besieged Christians to come to the United States.  That’s exactly why President Trump made a point of saying that in the future, Christian refugees from the region will receive preference, as they are the minority religion and most persecuted..almost to the point of verging on extinction.

The countries involved all have significant ISIS and al-Qaeda activity, and if you bother to do some searching, any number of these refugees have been involved in rapes, drug dealing, armed robbery, assault and other felonies. And a quick search shows that At least 23 ‘refugees’ have been implicated in terrorism in the United States since 2010, and the actual number is higher. That list doesn’t include killers like Major Nidal Hassan, the Ft. Hood murderer who was born in America or the Tsarnaeves of Boston Marathon infamy. Hassan was born here and the Tsarnaeves came here as children, but all were radicalized here in America. Islam, as some of you may have noticed, is not like other religions. It has many decent practitioners, but those people would be decent no matter what religion they embraced. The problem is that the ideology gives sanction to things no religious faith should, and a significant number of Muslims act on that. Vetting who’s who will be difficult, and likely take more than 90 days. So be it.

Aside from their track record here in America, no patriotic American looking at how mass migration of these Muslim’refugees’ has turned out for Europe would fail to see the common sense of what President Trump has done here.
