San Antonio Paper: We Should Totally Continue Letting Potential Terrorists In

The editorial board of the San Antonio Express-News is stoked to slam Trump for wanting to limit low educated people who bring little value to the country along with being threats for terrorism, because of values or something

Don’t jettison values after terrorist attack

The deadly attack in which an alleged ISIS supporter rented a truck and plowed into pedestrians and bicyclists in New York City is many things, including, most definitely, a terrorist act.

Alleged in the sense that the perp admitted to doing it in the name of Allah, Mohammed, and ISIS.

But what it isn’t is cause — as the president suggested — for the nation to dismantle its diversity visa lottery program, in which people from countries with low immigration rates to the U.S. are admitted. Nor is it vindication for the president’s ban on immigrants from majority-Muslim countries. Nor is it even proof that the president’s call for “extreme vetting” has any more saliency.

Here’s why. As a Department of Homeland Security analysis — leaked this year — determined: “We assess that most foreign-born, U.S.-based violent extremists likely radicalized several years after their entry to the United States, limiting the ability of screening and vetting officials to prevent their entry because of national security concerns.”

Actually, what you get out if that is that since we don’t know if they’ll be radicalized by the ones that are already here, we should put an end to allowing those who might be radicalized from entering. Furthermore, we should kick the ones who are radicallizing out.

As always, our reaction should be the opposite — grief, yes, but also vigilance, examination to see if there is something authorities might have done to prevent such events, acting on such knowledge and living lives as normally as possible. But definitely not jettisoning core American values.

What could authorities do? Start by keeping them out and kicking out the radicalized. As far as values, many times America has stopped immigration in order to allow them to assimilate. Also, so many of these current immigrants have values that are antithetical to America.

There’s lots more that could be fisked, but, I can only excerpt so much.

    The worst terrorist act since 9/11 was perpetrated by a white male citizen. Maybe we should keep white men from possessing semi-automatic weapons, which makes as much sense as banning all Muslims immigrants.

  2. Jeffery says:

    On Wednesday, Scott Ostrem, a white, registered Republican, calmly walked into a Colorado WalMart and shot and killed 3 Hispanic shoppers.

    Maybe we should ban white Republicans from stores, hotels, casinos, malls, colleges and other public spaces, which makes about as much sense as banning Muslims.

        We thought the odious jimhoft was the dumbest man in St. Louis, but we stand corrected.

          Well, you believe a fair amount of truly stupid sh!t, so your opinion means somewhere between jack and sh!t.
