We have met the enemy


We have met the enemy and it's them

  • There were virtually no Muslims in America before Teddy Kennedy's 1965 immigration act.
  • Today, we admit more immigrants from Muslim countries than from Great Britain.
  • We've admitted 2 million Muslims just since 9/11 – that’s more than had been admitted before 9/11.
  • Speaker Paul Ryan proclaimed: "That's not who we are."
  • Jeb! Bush made the subtle and clever argument that Trump was "unhinged."
  • Marco Rubio called any pause in Muslim immigration "offensive."
  • Does anyone know what Khan thinks of gays? How about miniskirts? Alcohol? ...
  • Have any current members of The New York Times editorial board ever lost a son in war? (Fighting on the American side.)
In order to shut down a debate they're losing, Democrats find victims to make their arguments for them, pre-empting counter-argument by droning on about the suffering of their victim-spokesperson. Alternative opinions must be preceded by proof that the speaker has "sacrificed" more than someone who lost a child, a husband, or whatever.

Khan's argument, delivered angrily and in a thick Pakistani accent at the DNC, is that "our" Constitution requires us to continue the nonstop importation of Muslims.

If the U.S. Constitution required us to admit more than 100,000 Muslims a year -- as we do -- we'd already be living in Pakistan, and Khan wouldn't have had to move to get that nice feeling of home. So the "argument" part of Khan's point is gibberish.

Luckily, Khan had Part Two: His son died in Iraq, whereas Donald Trump does not have a son who died in Iraq, so he can't say anything.

Yes, a candidate for president of the United States is supposed to be prohibited from discussing a dangerous immigration program because Khan's son was one of fourteen (14!) Muslim servicemen killed by other Muslims in our wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. That's why we're obligated to import yet more Muslims – including, undoubtedly, some just like the ones who killed his son. Q.E.D.! [FULL]

Sinecure - a position requiring little or no work but giving the holder status or financial benefit.

'nuff said.
