Depressed over Trump
There is some evidence that significant segments of the society are depressed over Trump winning. The idealistic Obama balloon has been popped, and who knows what we now have?
Blond women are dying their hair back to brown because they don’t want to look like Trump.
RG has a friend who can hardly get out of bed because of her Trump depression. She is a Russian immigrant who stayed in the country illegally and eventually became legal because she married an American citizen. She believes that the U.S. was the land of immigrants, but now this is over.
This line of thought drives me nuts! Somehow Progressives seem to think that the U.S. having immigration laws and enforcing them is immoral – even fascist, xenophobic, and racist. But if the U.S. is fascist for implementing immigration laws, what is the rest of the world?? Virtually every country in the world has strict immigration laws that are enforced!
Angela Merkel is a racist
According the some of the Progressive definition of “racism,” the Prime Minister of Germany is racist because she has banned the berka – the full covering of a Muslim woman. How could any moral person do such a thing: discriminate against a religion, hate Muslim women, and suppress freedom of religion?
But of course, with a common definition of “racism” among Progressives, everyone is a racist, everyone but themselves of course. Everyone makes generalizations about groups of people. Everyone categorizes people according to the group they are in. Everyone feels inferior or superior to everyone else.
Probability, terrorism, and discrimination
Most people are “racists” because they think – and they think rationally. For instance, most people have accepted the everyday experience that reality, in the end, is based on probability.
Let’s look at probability and Islam.
A fundamental belief in Islam is that the Koran is a literal and accurate description of God’s words, and they cannot be improved upon or modified in any way.
The Koran clear states the following ideas:
Muslims should not be ruled by infidels.
All Muslims must work (or fight) towards subordinating all people to the Koran. This is called “jihad.”
Muslims have the right to kill infidels the pursuit of jihad.
All groups of people can be generally described as belonging in the left wing, the center, or the right wing of their specific group. Concerning Muslims, a person can interpret the Koran with different emphasis, depending on what wing of Islam in which he belongs.
Thus a left wing Muslim may see Islam as a religion of peace, and that all Muslims want to do is to live in peace and harmony with their neighbors of different religions. A right wing Muslim may see Islam in perpetual war with infidels until all people are subordinate to the teachings of Mohamed. The people in the middle wing are somewhere in-between.
Muhammad, besides being a prophet, was a military leader, who conquered almost all of the Arabian continent and much of the Mideast. Thus, we can consider him in the right wing of Islam.
What about Germany?
Germany has recently accepted 1 million Muslim refugees. We can reasonable assume that at a minimum, 1% of these are – or will be – in the far right wing of Islam – that is, they will support violent jihad, if given a chance. This means that Germany now has 10,000 violent jihadists within her borders. Once they become citizens of Germany, they will automatically be citizens of the European community, and thus will be free to move to France, Italy, or any other European country.
This may be the primary reason England decided to opt out of the European Union. Perhaps two immigrant jihadists who cut the head off a military man in broad daylight on a crowded street, and then proudly waited to be arrested, raised a red flag for Brexit voters.
Back to Germany: We can reasonably estimate that at least 25% of the new immigrants are still in the right wing, but will work for jihad by democratic, peaceful means. This would mean there are now 250,000 more Muslims in Germany who want Sharia established in their new country, but will work towards this end through the democratic process.
We can also reasonably estimate, at most, around 75% of the new immigrants are in the left wing of Islam. This would be around 750,000 of the new refugees. They may want Germany to remain Germany and are they content to remain a minority and be ruled by infidels.
Probability in the U.S.
Now let’s switch to the U.S. Currently there are around 3 million Muslims in the U.S. This means that there are at least 30,000 Muslims in the country who support violent jihad. And this population is responsible for the periodic acts of terrorism, which will continue for the foreseeable future, especially we continue to support Israel.
It is also reasonable to assume that the greater number of Muslims we immigrate, the greater the number of violent jihadists will be here — at least 1% of whatever number we immigrate — and the greater probability of periodic acts of terrorism. This is why Trump and his supporters believe that we should restrict Muslim immigration “until we figure out what the hell is going on.”
Progressives, on the other hand, want to increase the number of Muslims we integrate, so that we don’t discriminate on the basis of religion. This is a moral and idealistic policy decision. However, if we make this decision, we must accept the increased incidences of acts of terrorism.
As with every other policy, Americans must be grown-ups and accept the consequences of our decisions.
Donald Trump claims that he will “make America great again” while simultaneously moving to destroy all the things that actually make America great.
Nonsense Gray! Taking a look at his picks for the cabinet should tell you that he is indeed doing a great job so far. His pick for state, Rex from Tex for instance will make America Great Again.
Eddie, weren’t the phds and elites the ones who got us in this mess we are in to begin with? Our society has for too long engendered us with the sense that having experience is a good thing. I submit to you that productivity and results is a good thing not experience in itself. For, one could be the most experienced person in the world yet have nothing to show for it. Surely you are not suggesting that this is the type of person we want any more.
The fact that Hillary is female was simply one of her playing cards during the election. As a feminist, I would love to see a female president. When electing a president the voter looks at the person running as a whole, what they can contribute to the office and what the country needs.
