I’ll be the first to admit that I’ve made some rather controversial statements here regarding the Islamic terrorists that have spent the last 14 years (and actually longer) trying to bring down our nation. I’ve questioned whether the president is serious in stopping them (he’s not). I’ve questioned whether we should have troops on the ground (we should), and I’ve even gone so far as to question whether Islam is really a religion because of the fact it calls for the outright murder of their non-believers.
I’ve also said that our immigration system is broken. It needs to be fixed before we let anyone else into the country. That is legal, illegal, Muslim, non-Muslim, it doesn’t matter. San Bernardino proved that we just don’t have adequate information to vet these people that are trying to enter the country. But we need to fix the problem, not do as Donald Trump says, and not let any Muslims into the country again. That’s not right. THAT is biggoted. And that is wrong.
Let’s get one thing straight and very clear. We need to fix our immigration system. We need to fix our border. We need to stop illegals from getting into the country, and we have to have a way to protect citizens from terrorists from legally getting here. To not do so is no less than a deriliction of duty and it’s not tolerable. It’s a violation of the oath of office that the president took when he was inaugurated. That would mean it’s also impeachable.
But it’s not right to just not let Muslims in. It’s right to not let ANYONE in until it’s fixed. Don’t limit it to Muslims. There are radicalized people out there that aren’t Muslim. And there are Muslims that are not radicalized. And it’s up to our government to figure out who’s who. It’s a tough job, but it’s what we pay taxes for. And it’s certainly not a job Bobo Obama and his Muslim-leaning ideology will want to embrace. But guess what? He wanted the job. Now he’s got it, he can’t shirk his responsiblity. And neither can Loretta Lynch. She must prosecute to the full extent of the law. In fact, when they catch these terrorists, are they being tried as “hate crimes”? If I did anything against a Muslim it probably would be called that…so why isn’t the shoe fitting the other foot to use a mixed metaphor?
Trump needs to walk back his statement about not letting Muslims into the country. To not do so makes him sound like a racist. I don’t think he is, but he sure sounds like one. That’s why we need to make sure the brain is engaged before we put the mouth in gear. In Trump’s case, he’s been able to dance around the fact he makes a lot of stupid statements, but it’s going to come back to haunt him!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
PS: There will NOT be any blog posted on Wednesday or Thursday. Hopefully, I’ll have my internet access back up at the Desert Enclave on Thursday, and we’ll be back to normal on Friday AM!
