A while back I wrote about the lack of Christian refugees coming to America. It seems that President Obama was very selective on which refugees mattered. And, Christians were not on his list. Sunni Muslims, on the other hand…… Daniel Greenfield points out how the left’s outrage only burns for certain refugees
Daniel Greenfield hits this out of the park! Selective Outrage anyone?
The President of the United States announced that refugees fleeing persecution by a totalitarian regime would be deported. It did not matter that they had risked their lives to come here.
They would be sent back.
No leftist lawyers crammed airports. No protesters chanted at terminals. No celebrities offered sanctimonious lectures about “who we are”. No one dared to call the lying thug behind it un-American.
Because his last name was Obama and the refugees were Cubans fleeing socialism.
Their arrival irritated the leftists gleefully going on tours of Havana while worrying that capitalism would ruin all the poverty, misery and oppression they were showing off on their Instagram pages.
The same leftists howling over Trump’s refugee pause from Muslim countries cheered loudly for Obama’s Cuban refugee ban. A majority of Cuban Americans had voted for Trump.
So the left wanted to keep them out of America.
The media outlets selling sniveling sob stories of Muslim families cheered when President Clinton sent in an anti-terrorist unit brandishing submachine guns to abduct a little Cuban boy at gunpoint from his family. “We literally wanted these people frozen with fear,” a BORTAC commander boasted.
That is how the left treats actual refugees.
When they lecture us on “who we are,” remember that this is who they are.
Please go read it all. The left’s ugly history is laid bare.
