Spinning the truth into lies. The new media business model.
For those of you who think President Trump's travel ban is unprecedented- please read on.
Last Friday Donald Trump signed a travel ban from seven middle eastern countries. What I have done here is included a news piece from CNN- I've done that so that you can see how CNN shades the truth by stating that the travel ban includes seven "predominately Muslim" nations. http://www.cnn.com/2017/01/30/politics/trump-travel-ban-q-and-a/
A few years ago, I got embroiled in a rather nasty back and forth with a liberal atheist- who otherwise quite educated- was defending followers of Islam. Our argument ground to a halt when I asked her if she knew the history of Mohammad the child rapist- or if she had ever read the Quran. Had she lied- I most certainly was prepared to offer a pop quiz on the spot. Instead she opted out of the argument, I suspect because she realized she was on the verge of completely exposing her ignorance of the subject matter.
For those of you who do not know the history of Mohammad the architect of Islam, people who have not read the Quran, folks who do not know what Sharia Law entails, or how the Muslim religion treats women, infidels, and non believers- you need to educate yourselves right now before you utter one peep or opinion about a subject you know nothing about.
Here is an eye opening piece with references listed at the bottom...be forewarned...you may find it quite distasteful. https://themuslimissue.wordpress.com/2013/01/18/islam-the-crimes-of-prophet-mohammed/
If you do educate yourselves on the subject- you will begin to see Islam for what it is and let me just say this... An objective look will leave you in awe. If this is the word of God, we are all in a lot of trouble.
Every country in the world has the right to protect their borders and they do. Wars have been waged over borders since the beginning of time. Interestingly enough, every war I can think of involves those things that we all find most distasteful. Politics and religion. Taboo subjects in many homes.
Think of your property boundaries as your own little country. Imagine if I told you that not only could I enter your property at will but that I had every right to do so and you could do nothing to stop it. Not only that but that you must allow me to use the property as I wish- to feed, clothe, worship, and provide medical help for me as the need arose.
This of course is insane. In America, where the rule of law once existed, you'd be prosecuted for trespassing or subjected to the barrel of a gun.
Why then would people find immigrants, both legal and illegal, entitled to enter our country? Are we under some contractual obligation to provide food and shelter to anyone who wants to come here? Do foreign nationals have rights which trump our very own citizen's rights to a safe and peaceful existence? Are we obligated to let anyone in?
The answer is no. It has always been no.
In fact at times, it has been hell no. Our very own government some 75 years ago- found it wise to lock up 140000 Japanese Americans who were already legal citizens. That is the penultimate travel ban. There was not one peep of dissent back then when FDR- the democrat- issued his executive order. No CNN to criticize the President for locking up 140000 Americans who were primarily Christian and Buddhists.
We have every right in America to demand and expect an orderly and lawful immigration process. Just because two or three Presidents chose to break the law and import a slave labor force for their business cronies does not make our immigration law null and void. In fact, I would submit to you that President Trump's travel ban is precisely what the role of government is supposed to entail. It is the only reason we have government in the first place.
To protect the safety of our own citizens. That includes our property, our infrastructure, and our civil rights. It has always been that way.
