No Syrians in America equals no terrorist attacks.

Seriously? Do you really believe closing our borders to people in desperate need will stop terrorism in this country? I hate to be the bearer of bad news but by turning these people away you are in fact ENSURING more terrorist attacks.

Because a few men are rapists, does that mean we should ban ALL men? Because a few women are gold diggers, does that mean we should ban ALL women? Because a few dogs are aggressive, should we ban ALL dogs? Do you see where I’m going with this? Being Muslim doesn’t make you a terrorist any more than being a man makes you a rapist.

I have no doubt there will be more terrorist attacks on our soil, but not because we open our hearts and our borders. Precisely the opposite. We have become a hated nation. We are a nation filled with adults acting like two year olds. “I want what I want when I want it and everyone else be damned”. We are a nation of racists, bigots, narcissists and greedy fools. Things have become more important than human beings.

The terrorists who entered America in order to carry out the 9/11 attacks did not come in as a group of refugees seeking asylum. Are you really so simple minded? If the answer is yes, you are more foolish than I first believed.

Have you even thought about the fact that our very ancestors were the first terrorists to come to this country? Just look at what they did to the American Indians. Can you really blame them from scalping the terrorists who were raping their women, stealing THEIR land and wiping out their tribes? The way I see it, our ancestors got what they deserved.

What about the terrorism perpetrated on the Africans? Kidnapped from their own birth places, separated from family, beaten mercilessly and forced to due hard labor so our ancestors could be rich AND lazy. Selling a human life is SO barbaric. To this day, they are still being abused and repressed.

Yet you have the gall to turn away an entire group of people seeking a better life for themselves and their children because they have the audacity to follow a different religion. Oh yeah, they MUST all be terrorists since they are not Christians.  They are seeking refuge from the same evil force you yourself are so afraid of. Please tell me, what right do the descendants of terrorists have to turn away a peaceful group of people who are in desperate need of our help, based on their religion?

Governor Deal, you disgust me. You are the epitome of all that is wrong with this country. You too, Donald Frump. May God have mercy on your souls!

Dear Syrian refugees,

Please forgive my government for they know not how ignorant they are. Just as being a Muslim does not mean you must be a terrorist, being American does not mean I must be an ignorant, racist, moronic bigot. There are many Americans who would welcome you with open arms. I am so sorry for the decisions of the self-righteous politicians in this country.

Crying can feel like dying – one drop at a time.

  1. I love this! When I had just read your title I cringed because I thought this was going to be a post on not allowing refugees into America. I am in Canada and people are no better here. My husband is on Facebook and he saw a post from a friend’s friend saying that we should kill them all because they are all terrorists.

    I swear. I do not know what I will do if that racist Donald Trump gets in. Could we have another Holocaust on our hands?

    1. I enjoy the element of surprise. I am so glad I surprised you! As you get to know me better, it will be easier to know that I am being sarcastic. I would never dream of judging an entire group of people, especially because of their religion.
      I am actually much more frightened of their being new attacks on American soil because of the way our politicians are reacting. President Obama wants to veto the bill that just passed in the Senate and is now headed for Congress. The bill that would close our boarders to all Muslims. Every one of these politicians claims to be Christian but I could swear they have never read the Bible.
      I want so desperately to go back to Italy and leave America behind. It gets depressing being surrounded by so much racism and bigotry.
      I’m sorry my title worried you for a moment and so happy that you chose to read the post in spite of the title.
      Thank you very much for following me. Please know that you will never see that kind of hatred out of me.

    1. You are wrong about liberals not caring. I think you are reading only right wrong news. Are you a Fox News watcher? To call the refugees an Isis conspiracy is pulling an idea out of your had with no basis in reality. All you are doing is repeating something you read our heard. Let me ask you, are you a Christian?

            1. If you are going to leave a poorly structured sentence with a cryptic comment about plates and expect anyone to “get it” – excuse me. Since it is obvious I’m online why are you asking if I know there is the internet, etc – so before you make stupid remarks like that, and since I’m assuming you know there an internet, take your arrogant mind somewhere else. Should I leave 12 exclamation points so you get the message?

            1. I will not get into an ugly fight with you about this. We each have a right to our own beliefs. I do want to give you some food for thought.
              The first thing that came to my mind after reading your comment was “why”. We are supposed to be a rich nation. Why then does our government allow so many veterans, children, poor and homeless go to bed hungry? I know the president of one of my local banks clears about 5 million a year. Why does our government allow politicians to take lavish vacations on my dime and yet some of the very people that voted for him/her went to bed hungry tonight? If our vets are not being properly cared for (and they are not being properly cared for) should you not look to your government for answers? My husband is one of those vets.
              We have so many hungry and homeless because those big American corporations keep sending jobs to other countries where they don’t have to pay decent wages, don’t have to provide benefits and don’t even get me started on the tax benefits. If you want less hungry, less poor and less homeless people then perhaps it is time to take a hard look at which corporations have which politicians in their pockets.
              You and i may never see eye to eye. That’s okay. It won’t destroy me. What is destroying me is the fact that most Americans have come to the conclusion that the Muslims are somehow magically directly responsible for all that ails this country. It’s sad, really.

  3. I think your country deserves credit for being careful in order to protect its people. As for Africans being sold, if our own people did not allow themselves, they would not have been sold. It will interest you to know those at the helm of affairs where others were sold were their own brothers, country men etc. I am not saying they are right in the blockage but they do deserve a little credit for wanting to protect the people within their jurisdiction.

    1. Their purpose is not that they care about us here in America and want to protect us. They do not care about the people AT ALL. Their purpose is to invoke enough fear to gather the support for another war. They have wanted to invade Syria for a long time. There is a lot of profit in war.

  4. Nicely put. These refugees are running from the same people we are fighting.Since we’re part of the reason they’ve had to leave their country it’s only fair we offer them shelter. Some of us in Europe we’re a little slow at doing just that but at least we’ve changed out minds now and are all taking some. Maybe one or two killers from the despicable ISIS will try to come in as refugees too but we have no right to condemn the rest.

    1. I couldn’t agree with you more. Most of the 50 states have closed their borders. Only a very few are open-minded enough to welcome them in. It just breaks my heart that so many Americans are so closed minded. At least President Obama is ready to veto the bill that is heading to Congress which would close all of our borders.
      Thank you for taking the time to read my post!

  5. reblogging friend and after my husband told me what he heard Donald Trump wants, to make Muslims wear identifying symbols he was reminded of a certain dictator, *cough Hitler, who made the Jews wear stars before he gassed 8 million of them. The Senate and Trump are trying to turn America into the 4th Reich. Scary shite.

  6. I like how you put this… you got me with the title – I thought it was going to be one of those stop immigration posts. I live in Arizona, and I know very well the issues with closed borders and closed minds. It’s frustrating really. I wish there was more compassion and less discrimination.

  7. You and I think alike. I shared this on fb and g+. I saw you followed my blog about Jamie, but it is on my other blog that I write about things that don’t have anything to do with prisons. I get so frustrated with closed minded people, and people who say that Christianity is so great, yet their actions make me want to get as far away from them as possible. This whole issue with the refugees and the way these GOP politicians are leading them to war with fear AND people fall for it. It is so disturbing. From the day Paris happened I have said they are priming Americans to support another war. People are going to fall for it just like they did Iraq in 2001. Everyone knows now that Iraq had nothing to do with 911 The govt knew it too and they very conveniently tied the two together. In 2011, reported through Gen Wesley Clark, our Government had a list of wars to start. 7 countries in 5 years. Syria was on that list. They are behind schedule but now they have the perfect reason to bomb Syria, and the American people will be stupid enough to root for it.

    1. Thank you so much for sharing this! I get so angry about the hatred. Some days i just feel as if my soul is going to die. I am a Christian and i do believe in the things that Jesus tried to teach us. We are supposed to have love in our hearts for ALL of our brothers and sisters. Not just pick and choose. I found an app that tries to translate the Koran (spelling? – I’m sorry). The little i have read so far says so much of the same thing my Christian bible says. It speaks of love and kindness. It speaks of doing the right thing. There will always be groups of people that find a way to twist the words in any holy book to fit their agenda. Even the Christians.
      The first night of “Shock and Awe” during our invasion of Iraq, i laid in my bed crying all night long. I know bad things were happening there and i also knew innocent people were going to die. It is just amazing how Halliburton profited from that tragedy.
      I know there will be people that don’t like what I have to say. Good thing is that i don’t give a rats behind. After all, this is America. I have a right to my opinion – right???
      Thank you for sharing your thoughts with me and thank you for sharing my post.

  8. Reblogged this on Watch and Whirl and commented:
    There are many things I could say to open this post, but the author wrote exactly what I think. My concern is that our government began priming Americans for another war from the day Paris was attacked. America wasn’t attacked yet people are listening to the idiotic republican presidential candidates stomping their feet for war – they WANT to be president in time of war because that is how most men think. But aside from that, this war has been planned for a long time. Are Americans going to follow like good little citizens even after they found out how they were led into war in Iraq. Are the “good” Christians in America going to prove once again they aren’t very good at being Christians?

    1. That is awesome! Sometimes the hate and ugliness make my soul feels weary from all of it. I was raised Christian and i was taught we are ALL God’s children. Which God? Maybe we all believe in the same “supreme being” but call him by a differant name. Big deal. I don’t believe that we were placed on this earth to judge each other. We should all have a right to our own individual thoughts and belief system. That doesn’t mean we can’t love each other. The Christians of today seem to believe that their way is the only way. Can they not understand that there were many other religions around thousands of years before Christianity came into existence?
      I was not raised to hate or be fearful of people who had a different belief system. I have my mom to thank for that! I am very grateful that she taught me we are all equal. I have begun to seriously question whether or not i want to remain a Christian. I have been blessed to meet a very wonderful woman here that is teaching me to question the bible i grew up believing in. There are many contradictions. If Christianity requires me to hate and judge others, then i am finished with it.
      I am very happy that i have met you. I love meeting people who think like i do. This country has gone to hell and i hate living among the haters.
      Thank you for following me. I look forward to reading more of your blog.
