so what's the most effective way to get the point across?
i was chatting with a very PC relative on facebook, who did the usual "islam is the religion of peace" thing, and i said, uh, actually it's not. not even close, and if you read the koran and hadith you see this very clearly...
and of course she unfriended me.
so that wasn't very effective. some people are really determined not to see what is in front of their eyes, because it's too painful.
how can they be reached, if at all? it's very important, because their votes and voices are needed to keep us safe from islam.
It's not all or nothing. A country has the right to choose which nationals may "tour" it's country. As some nations are particularly dangerous, I think it could improve overall tourism to prevent the high-risk ones from getting to the US in the first place.
Too much 'in your face'.
Reality needs to be gently re-introduced to the Rose Colored Crowd...otherwise, you are shut down immediately.
ie: "islam is the religion of peace" thing,
"Well, I really want to believe that, but how do you come to grips with ...." and hit them with one thing only.....
Killing a few hundred people is sad, but it's nothing.
I suggest marcus/"humanity" and "YesYNot" should be the first victims, though alas it will probably be others and marcus/"humanity" will continue his Ignorant and hateful blather. And yes, marcus/"humanity" is the hateful one, as shown by his willful Ignorance and trollishness. At the risk of sounding like Sarah Palin, marcus/"humanity" really does hate America: aside from calling everybody racist and refusing to get the flu vaccine even when schoolchildren were dying of H1N1, he now invites lethal attacks upon America.
Unfortunately, nothing seems to dissuade these would-be martyrs from their path, on either side. They simply double down. YesYNot said that hundreds killed are "nothing," just like Jihadi John; nothing matters to them except their own quest.
They should sue. Like Disney doesn't make enough money, it has to outsource tech jobs and force IT workers to train their Chindian replacements. I hope they win a billion dollars and the case sets a precedent that keeps the wealthy owner assholes from misusing this program again. And I hope Congress acts to repeal it. There is almost no legitimate reason why you'd need to hire a guy from another country to replace a guy here.
The more the democrats show up (BLM, occupy universities, encourage unchecked Muslim immigration) the more Trump seems like the only option to those of us who aren't complete fuckwits. Even Bernie, as much as I respect the guy for sticking to his ideals, fell down hard on the Syrian immigration thing. If he'd taken even as moderate a road as the Canadian PM and offered the women and families but no single dudes a refuge, he'd be golden. But instead he wants all no checks, no worries that some of the majority single men are going to be bad for America.
Trump with all his xenophobia has it sewn up. People with families who vote don't want their kids threatened by foreign terrorist assholes.
Or is there some other goal to importing large numbers of Muslims?
It's an export/import business. The middle east has more Muslims than it needs, so the Saudis want to export them to Europe and America. The American and European politicians are funded by the military industrial complex, and the security contractors, and (especially in the case of the Bush family but also in the case of the Clinton Foundation) the Saudis, so the choices are (D) import Muslims here so it becomes necessary to spy on everyone to find the terrorists or (R) send ground troops over there, to support the booming procurement budgets. Of course, in the spirit of bipartisanship, both will happen, as happened in Iraq.
I just find it odd, that after the French attacks, Obozo goes abroad and his beef is with repubs and he makes fun of them -unwilling to deal with radical islamists. Meanwhile Putin is being the statesman .
