Recently, a friend and I discussed President Obama’s failures. Though there are many, I linked the plurality of these failures together under one central flaw: Barack Obama, the president of the United States, does not think of himself as a president of the United States, but as an advocate for a perverted sense of global social justice.
It’s simple, really. The president of the United States should advocate for the interests of Americans- just as the prime minister of the United Kingdom ought to advocate for the interests of his citizens. Belgians should be for Belgians; the French should be for the French. The Japanese should be for the Japanese.
But Obama is not for America; he’s dedicated to the plights of, seemingly, everyone but Americans. When viewed through this lens, his disastrous foreign policies suddenly snap into focus and adhere to this pattern of world-centric advocacy.
For Americans, this is disastrous. For those seeking to do harm to America and her inhabitants, it’s a wonderful opportunity. Though Europe is currently suffering the consequences of militant multiculturalism and a permissive immigration policy, Obama seeks to mimic these failed ideas and import 10,000 Syrian refugees, about whom we know nothing, to the American mainland.
After the Paris attacks, governors throughout the country have slammed-on the brakes and have announced that they will not permit a relocation of tens-of-thousands of potential terrorists into their states.
At present, a whopping 24 states and counting have announced a suspension or restriction of the resettlement of Syrian refugees in their states. These states are: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas and Wisconsin.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott explained in a letter to Obama,
“Given the tragic attacks in Paris and the threats we have already seen, Texas cannot participate in any program that will result in Syrian refugees — any one of whom could be connected to terrorism — being resettled in Texas.”
Though the administration has promised “robust” vetting of the refugees, such promises are a joke and the Obama administration knows it. Many of the refugees have been displace by war and will have no traceable background, making it a perfect opportunity for well-financed terrorist cells to dispatch operatives into the mix with bought-and-paid-for Syrian documents that are easy to obtain.
Though the governors of the aforementioned states are doing what Obama should have done a long time ago, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) lashed-out at these governors as being “un-American” in their refusal to accept the fox into the henhouse.
In a statement, the terrorist-apologist organization blasted,
“Defeating ISIS involves projecting American ideals to the world. This un-American rejection of refugees, who will face significant security checks prior to entry, sends entirely the wrong message. Governors who reject those fleeing war and persecution abandon our ideals and instead project our fears to the world.”
To the radical left, it is somehow “un-American” to maintain a sovereign nation where we work to limit the potential dangers to our national security and the safety of individuals.
UPDATE, 11/17/15 at 2:34 PM ET: As of Tuesday morning, 29 states oppose bringing Syrian “refugees” for resettlement.
