“When you start seeing individuals in positions of responsibility suggesting that Christians are more worthy of protection than Muslims are in a war-torn land, that feeds the ISIL narrative,” the president continued. “It’s counterproductive, and it needs to stop.”
“When candidates [Chris "Krispykreme" Christie] say, we wouldn’t admit three-year-old orphans — that’s political posturing. When individuals [J.E.B.!, Rupert "Aargh" Murdoch, and "Tailgunner Ted" Cruz] say that we should have a religious test and that only Christians — proven Christians — should be admitted — that’s offensive and contrary to American values.”
“These are the same folks oftentimes who suggest that they’re so tough that just talking to Putin or staring down ISIL, or using some additional rhetoric somehow is going to solve the problems out there,” he said.If there's anything more revealing of the sham "Christian," racist, xenophobic, small bore Republican/ New Confederate/ Stupid/ Crazy Party, trying to score political points off of wretched refugees (the vast, vast majority of whom aren't even coming to America) has to be the clincher. This, from the group of chickenhawk neo- cons who bungled us into Iraq, paving the way for ISIS.
“But apparently, they’re scared of widows and orphans coming into the United States of America as part of our tradition of compassion. First, they were worried about the press being too tough on them during debates. Now they’re worried about three-year-old orphans. That doesn’t sound very tough to me.” (our emphasis)
Giving credit where due, some right- wing Republican scribes aren't happy with their party's ugly stance: see here, here, here and here.
