Letter: Make America Great

I know how to Make America Great Again. In addition to banning Muslims, as President Trump has proposed, let’s ban Irish Catholics. They molest children, don’t they? And what about Italians? We know they’re all Mafia. And, while we’re at it, let’s lock up all evangelical Christians. They shoot doctors.

Hypocrites unite and Make America Great Again.

  1. The ban is not about Muslims. It’s a temporary ban on travelers from the seven countries that Obama and Secretary of State Clinton bombed. After these seven countries were decimated (by Clinton), and left without a government, radical Islamist groups took over. It is always helpful to actually read why these countries gave rise to terrorists. The Muslims fleeing the terror provide a perfect cover for terrorists to infiltrate other countries, which we have seen.

    • “After these seven countries were decimated [by Clinton] and left without a government, radical Islamist groups took over.”

      Is this the “Obama/Clinton Created ISIS” theory? And below I quote from a Trump campaign statement:

      “Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on,” a campaign press release said.

  2. The ban is about Muslims. As is President Trump’s executive order signed on Jan. 27 suspending the refugee program for 120 days. It singles out Syrian refugees running away from the almost six-year-old war. “On 20 August 2014, a new U.N. study concluded that at least 191,369 people have died in the Syrian conflict. The UN thereafter stopped collecting statistics, but a study by the Syrian Centre for Policy Research released in Feb. 2016 estimated the death toll to be 470,000, with 1.9 million wounded (reaching a total of 11.5 percent of the entire population either wounded or killed).” [Wikipedia]

    The president’s order also reduces the amount of refugees from other countries to 50,000 and gives priority to Christians. His decisions on a number of admissible refugees cannot be challenged in courts — it is up to the president of the U.S. to decide this. This are the facts, there are no alternative facts that I know of.
