Yeah, I know. I too was rather sickened when Donald Trump proposed that we ban the immigration of all Muslims to the United States. I mean, we DO still have religious freedom in this country, and until someone gets the balls to say that Islam is no longer a religion because of what we’ve been witnessing, we’re stuck with them included in that grouping (kind of like having to listen to idiot liberals who don’t know what they’re talking about because we’ve got the first amendment!).
But apparently, there is more to The Donald than I originally thought. The Washington Times has unleashed a story (read it here: http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2016/jun/13/second-generation-americans-proving-most-fruitful-/) that has more than suggested that the children of immigrant parents, especially Islamic immigrant parents are ripe for being recruited for Jihad. Reason for that? Well, the parents that immigrated here will retain their own culture, so they are happy to have left the turmoil behind. The grandchildren of the parents actually are, by that time, American in nature, and are viewed by our culture and themselves as such. It’s the children of the immigrants that apparently are having a hard time adjusting. Most were alive when the parents immigrated to the US and remember the old country and the friends and relatives they left behind, and they in some cases, long for the “old days”. It is apparently having a profound effect on them.
Let’s take a peek at what I’m talking about. Omar Mateen, the Orlando gay nightclub shooter was the son of immigrants from Afghanistan. Syed Rizwan, one of two San Bernardino shooters was the son of Pakistani parents. Nadir Soofi, one of the guys that attacked that Muhammed drawing competition in Garland, Texas a year or so ago, was the son of a Pakistani father. And who could forget Nidal Hassan, the guy that shot up Fort Hood in 2009? His parents were Palestinian. And if you read the article (which I know most won’t…that’s ok…that’s why I DO!), you understand it’s a psychological phenomenon well known in the shrink community.
So was Trump that far off base? Well, he since has revised his stance on banning ALL Muslims to banning all Muslims from countries in the Middle East. Is it a callous stance? You bet. Is it controversial? Is anything this guy says NOT controversial? But was it RIGHT? He makes a pretty good argument for it, but I will leave that for you to decide.
The whole point here is that we as a nation love to rush to judgement on someone when we think that they are making rash statements that are not “politically correct”, when in fact, the “political correctness” may be the thing that needs rash judgement. Too often we’re afraid to offend someone, or some religion or some country because it’s not nice. All the while, we turn the other cheek when crap like what happened in Orlando, and San Bernardino, and other places happen all the time. We only condemn after the shooter is dead so we won’t offend. Well, sorry folks…I’m offended by “political correctness”. It’s vile, it’s damaging, it’s un-American. If you want to follow it, it’s still a free country, but you’re an idiot if you do. The discussion on it is over…the science is settled…the debate is finished…period.
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
