John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and the Muslim invasion

Now we have John McCain and Lindsey Graham jumping into the fray regarding “Syrian refugees,” recommending we take them in.  It’s not a surprise they would be on the wrong side of this issue, as they are on so many issues, but it’s no less sickening every time they, or any member of the Republican Party, reveal how spineless they are.

Last week, responding to a report that international groups are pressuring the United States to take not 10,000, but 65,000 Syrian refugees by the end of 2016, Tucker Carlson asked McCain and Graham if allowing any refugees into this country is in the best interest of America.

Sitting side by side, with Graham nodding in agreement at odd intervals, Thing 1 and Thing 2 had this to say:

McCain: “We have always welcomed refugees under certain circumstances,” but “we have to be sure that they’re not a threat to the United States of America.”

Graham: “Well, we’re Americans. We’ve taken 2,000 refugees. Two hundred and thirty thousand people have been killed in Syria. Uh, women are being gang-raped by the thousands. So I would like to think that America is a special place; that Americans have welcomed people in the past” … blah, blah, blah … “Statue of Liberty” … blah, blah, blah. “I’m not going to turn my back on this problem …”

I’m going to ignore the rest of what Graham had to say simply because he’s not worthy of any extra keystrokes.  As for McCain, his comments are worthy for one reason only: they epitomize what is wrong with the conversation in America on Islam and Muslim immigration.

This is not just about making sure we don’t import terrorists.  Of course we don’t want to import terrorists.  Duh!  (And by the way, we can’t make absolutely sure we won’t import them, and evidence shows we most likely will despite our best efforts, so let’s stop this charade.)

But this is about more than terrorists.  It is about the broad threat of Islamic law and the myriad ways it impacts a free society.

Sharia law is not compatible with our Constitution.  And research shows that most Muslims want sharia law.

It really is that simple, awful, dangerous, and unacceptable.

But few, if any, talk about it.

The discourse must expand far and beyond the issue of terror, which of course should be of paramount concern.

The conversation must include creeping sharia.

It must be about the proliferation of mosques that preach jihad cropping up across America.  And Muslim schools where children are taught hate.

It must include a frank conversation about Muslim Brotherhood front groups and the infiltration of the Muslim Brotherhood into every branch of government.  And lawfare, entitlement, and the assertion of Muslim supremacy.

It must address institutionalized Jew-hatred.  And the skyrocketing number of prison converts to Islam.  And jihad training compounds.  And honor killings.  And the whitewashing of Islam in our schools.  And lack of assimilation.  And Muslims in America who think the death penalty is an appropriate punishment for blasphemy.

The conversation must be about what is happening in the Twin Cities and Dearborn, Michigan and increasing numbers of cities and towns across this country.

And Muslim intimidation.

And bombings and beheadings.

The conversation we’re not having is, at its core, about our very survival – you and me and our children and grandchildren.

It’s about Islam.  And no amount of avoiding the truth about it will avert this growing threat.

Quite the opposite.
