Liberals are outraged! But they don’t even know what they’re outraged about. They assume this is a “Muslim ban” but that is just a LIE…
From The Blaze:
Let’s cut to the chase. There’s no other way of putting it. When you refer to Trump’s “Muslim ban,” you’re lying. If you aren’t directly lying, then you’re blindly lobbing accusations without stopping to confirm whether the accusations are true. And that’s the same thing as lying. So, you’re a liar. Stop it. Stop lying so much.
A “Muslim ban” would be a ban on Muslims. A ban on Muslims would be a law that prevents Muslims from entering the United States based solely on the fact that they are Muslim. No such law exists. No such Executive Order was issued. Trump’s policy temporarily prevents citizens from only 7 Muslims majority countries from coming to the country, which leaves about 43 Muslim majority countries unaffected. The only problem a rational person could have with this decision is that more Muslim nations — Saudi Arabia, especially — should have been included. Perhaps they will be in the future. But you’re a fool if you argue that fewer countries should have been targeted. And you’re a liar if you claim that the targeting of these terrorism factories is tantamount to a “Muslim ban.”
It’s not Donald Trump’s fault that all of the countries that churn out terrorists also happen to be Muslim. The reason that Christian majority countries aren’t being subjected to a ban is that Christian majority countries aren’t exporting jihadists left and right. Now, it goes without saying that if Christian terrorism was even a thing, and if there were Christian nations that had collapsed into anarchy and were now producing scores of Christian militants bent on violently enslaving the planet in the name of Christ, then these very same Leftists would be the first to shout for a ban, at a minimum. I wouldn’t be surprised to hear them clamoring for a series of nuclear strikes to finally eradicate the Christian scourge once and for all.
But that’s not the situation we face. The situation is that certain Muslim majority countries — and only Muslim majority countries — have become hatcheries for global terrorism. If there’s a link between the fact that these countries produce terrorists and the fact that these countries are majority Muslim, that’s something the Islamic community should take up with itself. In the meantime, all we can do is respond to the reality as it presents itself.
