Or is it just a few bad apples & some scarily wanting to be our next President?
If anyone is seriously gonna be voting for the next election, watch these 'Americans' showcase why the term Ugly Americans has become so popular!
In the wake of the Paris attacks (no I'm not discussing World War II), A bunch of Republican leaders and Presidential candidates have announced their opposition to any of the Syrian refugees to be allowed to enter our sacred shores. How American of them… guess they forgot our history! Forgot our values! Just bask in your fears and hatred and try to make political points in the process. And worse seek funds because of it.
Its possible we could be discussing the start of the real World War III. As opposed to all the others that have occurred since the end of the last War to end all Wars. It seems, finally we have a real threat on our hands. Not just a foreign war amongst warring sections of a few small countries that we seem to be giving advice to and lots of our tax payers money.
Ever since President George W. Bush disregarded the warnings and we got attacked on 9/11, and we entered this current vicious non-ending military action, by attacking the wrong nation! It seems we have been playing war games in the sand. With Drones and air power, and for the most part, without boots on the ground, supposedly. Leading various attempts at downsizing this latest threat, which currently is ISIL. Each step seemingly a logical attempt at fixing a sadly illogical enemy, And sadly it seems, each attempt has actually seemed to strengthen this monstrous entity's zeal for their eventual goals. Seemingly to destroy everything that disagrees with their centuries old religious beliefs.Or their twisted interpretations of those sacred laws.
The scary part of this is, there is some small part of me that sees a grain of salt in their justification for their hatred and demonizing of these poor refugees who are simply trying to find a place to live. Not for their hatred and demonizing, I completely disagree with that, but for their fear in the unknown. The what ifs.
So, if you wanna live with the what-ifs scenarios, then if, a few or the many, of these refugees or as they like to think of them as mindless terrorists, are amongst the thousands entering our shores. What if they are simply here to infiltrate our mighty nation. And defeat us from within!!! Dum dum dummmmmmmmmmmb!
I'm sorry, if that was true, that scenario would have occurred time and again over the years with each new foreign invasion. I mean, the Germans came, we didn't demonize all of them after the war was over. All Germans aren't Nazis! Are they? If not, then how are all Muslims, terrorists? Just saying.
The Irish, The British for Gods sake…we do have some history fighting them, don't we ? Guess we shouldn't have let The Beatles on our shore! I mean we did call it The British Invasion… didn't we?
That said, as we know, this is a different age, a different enemy, nothing is out of the question. But, we live in the real world and sorry, I have to believe that these nightmare scenario's are just that nightmares. For me, the scarier threat is if one of these so called Americans become our next President. And that people simply do not seem to change. This hatred that some of these people are spouting sounds like the same garbage we heard decades ago against numerous minorities and immigrants.
