*people do not COME here as radicals.
*they get radicalized here.....gee, do you suppose rampant Islamophobia mighy have something to do with it?
Can we get to work on rightwing nutjob hate groups now?
So it turns out if you.....act like Saddam Hussein people don't like it. There have been HUNDREDS of attacks on Muslims, Jews, and Sikhs since Trump was elected. These people FLEE the Saddams and the ISIS groups, then they come here, and what do they greeted with, as they stand there, drooping, having left everything behind them?
"Give me your tired, your poor...."
They are us. We were once them. Tomorrow we could be all us, one big colorful group. Those of us who have been saying this is NOT America, that this is NOT right.....were right.
The right thing is not a fad. It's like the clear note of music that you get from a properly-tuned piano. That never changes. There is no fashion this year for decency and bare humanity, it never changes. If that is your thing, two thousand years ago, Jesus said,
"...for I was hungry, and you gave me food to eat. I was thirsty, and you gave me drink. I was a stranger, and you took me in. I was naked, and you clothed me. I was sick, and you visited me. I was in prison, and you came to me.’
“Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry, and feed you; or thirsty, and give you a drink? When did we see you as a stranger, and take you in; or naked, and clothe you? When did we see you sick, or in prison, and come to you?’
“The King will answer them, ‘Most certainly I tell you, because you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’
These are the words the people pushing this ban supposedly believe.
By your actions ye will know them is the phrase.
Now is the time to take action. It remains, forever, the right thing to do.
