So everyone is going crazy over Donald Trump wanting to ban Muslims from entering the United States. I like Trump and I agree with a lot of what he says. However, in this case, I wish he had said what he did…differently.
The fact is, he is right. We are under attack from Muslims. All Muslims? No. But until we are able to come up with a surefire way to tell the difference between a Muslim that has no ill will and a Muslim that wants to kill me and all my infidel friends, we need to stop them all from coming. And get this…the Muslims who don’t have any ill will towards us understand that and they aren’t mad. In fact, I dare say, many of those Muslims don’t want the crazy ones coming in either. Last time I checked, most Muslims don’t have their religious affiliation stamped on their foreheads and they can get caught in the crossfire between us smarmy infidels and the “Crazy Muslims” (And shush! We all know they are crazy). And guess what? Those non-crazy Muslims don’t want to be shot or blown up either!
So now that we’ve gotten past the whole “you’re a horrible person for insulting all Muslims thing”, maybe we can focus on the real issue, keeping all United States citizens – Muslim, Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, et al – from being violently murdered. And, in my opinion, the first step is to shut down the borders, period. I don’t care if you are black, white, Asian, Muslim, Wiccan, Hindu, Hispanic or Martian, the message will be the same:
“The United States is temporarily closed while we undergo renovations to bring (us) a new and improved experience. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
Please try back another time.”
In other words, “No visa or entry for you!”, unless you are a bona fide U.S. Passport carrying citizen. Yes, this will probably cause some issues for commerce but what else can we do at this point?
Here’s the best metaphor I can think of to explain why we need to close the borders: An ambulance brings a guy into the Emergency Room. He has a broken arm, a superficial cut on his face, a fractured skull, and his leg – severed above the knee – is spurting blood. What’s the first thing you do? Is it to clean his face and put a band-aid with antibiotic ointment on the cut while cooing in his ear that he’ll be okay? F**ck No! You stop the bleeding! Then you do surgery to repair what was bleeding. And then everything else is handled in order of severity and necessity.
We need to stop the bleeding and the bleeding, in this case, is the flood of Radical Islamists that are making their way into this country with the intent to do us harm. Next we repair what was bleeding, which is the ineffectual screening system for those coming into the U.S. And while we do that we need to close the damn doors!
But how can we turn our back on all those refugees and peaceful immigrants wanting to come to the U.S. for a better life? Isn’t that un-American? Am I the only person wondering why anyone, not intent on killing us, wants to come to this country right now? Then again, it seems like nowhere is safe these days, so I guess it is a matter of the lesser evil and all that.
So if you are not on board with Trump’s temporary ban on all Muslims, quit bitching about how horrible he is and come up with a better plan to stop the bleeding…unless of course you want to be shot, stabbed, beheaded, blown up or whatever other method of infidel control the “crazy” Muslims are using lately.
