What does a coward do, two days after the horrific terror attacks on the people of Paris?

A coward denies refuge to victims of terror out of fear the terrorists will retaliate.


If we are rejecting the Syrian Refugees
then let's STOP saying we are going to war to "defend" Freedom.
Because that is a LIE


These are people who are the first to say that the United States military is fighting for freedom. Yes, as long as it’s in some far-off place, as long as it’s somebody else’s kid, as long as we can stand up during a football game and admire the fighter jets zooming overhead during a halftime Tribute to the Troops, as long as somebody can make a buck selling weapons, it’s all good. Because freedom.

But let in to our beautiful country some of those very same people that Our Troops were fighting to save? Not on your life! What if one of them turns out to be a terrorist?

Terrorists, or Terrible Twos? Many fear-stricken Americans can't tell the difference.



GOP Governors Ready To Give ISIS What It Wants


The Rude Pundit: Another Goddamned Blog Post About Paris and ISIS


.........no matter what you do, a half-dozen fucknuts are always going to be able to occasionally slip through your wall or your shield and wreak havoc. But it means a little goddamned mercy goes a long ass way. It means opening ourselves to the refugee tide and offering an experience of the West that is counter to the image that they've been fed in much the same way the West has been fed an image of the Muslim world that's a lie, but it's a lie that gets stronger with every attack and it allows the liars to lie to more people.

Many of the current wave of refugees want to get the hell away from the storm that's engulfed Syria, which includes the crazed violence of the Assad regime and of ISIS. The Republican policy seems to be let's send back the people fleeing bombs so we can do the bombing. That's unsustainable. Instead, as Jesse Berney says in Rolling Stone, "If we want a world where terrorists can no longer recruit young people to give their lives to senseless murder, we have to show that the United States is not their enemy. Welcoming those fleeing terror is a critical first step. And rejecting refugees won't keep terrorists determined to attack us from finding a way in."

What happened in Paris is a nightmare. If we once again react with just military might and limitations on the rights of people and ludicrous lashing out at anyone Muslim, then we will be here, perhaps after Assad falls and we once again get rid of a terrible person and unleash chaos, and we'll all be saying the same goddamn things in more goddamned blog posts of recognizing that we fail and fail again and refuse to do something other than fail.

The Problem With Bloviating Pundits After the Paris Attacks Whose side are these guys on?


OBAMA Hits Jeb BUSH Over Syrian Refugee Statement:“That’s not American. That’s not who we are.”

President Obama sharply criticized Jeb Bush and Ted Cruz for their reactions to refugees in the wake of the Paris terror attacks.

Speaking at the G20 summit in Turkey on Monday, Obama called out Bush and Cruz, without naming names, for their remarks that the United States should prioritize accepting Christian refugees.

“When I hear folks say that maybe we should just admit the Christians but no the Muslims, when I hear political leaders suggesting that there would be a religious test for which person who is feeling from a war-torn country is admitted, when some of those folks themselves come from families who benefitted from protection when they were fleeing political persecution, that’s shameful,” Obama said. “That’s not American. That’s not who we are.”

Former Florida Gov. Bush told CNN Sunday, “We should focus our efforts as it relates to refugees on the Christians that are being slaughtered.”

The same day, Texas Sen. Cruz continued to call for barring Muslim refugees from entering the country, adding that *“there is no meaningful risk of Christians committing acts of terror.”

Jeb Bush: Only Christians should be allowed refugee status in response to Paris attack

Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush said over the weekend that the U.S. should respond to the terrorist attacks in Paris by carefully screening out Syrian refugees who are not Christians.


“There are a lot of Christians in Syria that have no place now,” he explained. “They’ll be either executed or imprisoned, either by Assad or by ISIS. And I think we should have — we should focus our efforts as it relates to the Christians that are being slaughtered.”

Tapper wondered how screeners would know which refugees were Christians.

“We do that all the time,” Bush insisted. “I think we need to be — obviously — very, very cautious. This also calls to mind the need to protect our borders, our southern border particularly.”
