First, if you don’t recognize that line, I’m not sure we can be friends.
Second, go read this from Larry Kudlow, and then go read this from Ace.
I tend to be on Ace’s side here. The Republican Establishment has been too
open borders for too long, despite the grass roots’ very specific objections
that our border situation was a National Security concern. Either they are way
too stupid to be in charge (for not realizing what us rubes in fly-over land,
free-market Jesus paradise have realized for the last couple of decades), or
they are simply trying to co-opt a position they don’t actually believe to make
us rubes in fly-over land, free-market Jesus paradise a little less angry at
For over 14 years the Minute Men have been on the border between the US and
Mexico attempting (voluntarily) to help US Border Patrol. They understood (as
did many of the rest of us) the danger posed by an open border way back then.
So is really that another terror attack on US soil finally got Larry’s
attention, or is he trying to sound tough so that the grass roots will start
trusting the Establishment again?
However, with all that said, I think Kudlow is an idiot even in his new
hawkish opinion. He reminds me rather of C-3PO telling R2D2 not to shut
down “all the trash compactors on the detention level” but rather, “No! Shut
them all down!”
We don’t have a problem with immigrants or visitors from England, France, or
Sweden. Not by and large, at any rate, and certainly not a recognizable
terrorism problem from those countries. Why should we prevent them from coming
here and, potentially, even further alienate our allies? Larry wants to pretend
that this is not “about religion.” To do so, he has to pretend it’s
about “immigration” more generally, and so the only option is complete
Note to Larry Kudlow and the rest of the GOP Establishment: It’s the
What is the common denominator among Iraq, Syria,
Libya, Israel’s West Bank, and the rest of the Middle East? Mohammedanism. Who
are the euphemistic “warlords” in Africa? Mostly Mohammedans. Who is throwing
gays off of buildings, beheading Christians, and slaughtering innocents?
Mohammedans. Who shot up a Christmas Party in San Bernadino, detonated a bomb
at the Boston Marathon, and flew 3 planes into US landmarks? Mohammedans.
It would be really nice if Mohammedanism really was “a religion of peace,” as
its apologists claim. It simply isn’t. Mohammedanism, is an evil death cult.
Mohammed preached (and practiced) conversion by the sword, conquest, rape, and
pillage. Today, a majority of Mohammedans world-wide believe that violent jihad
is a valid form of Mohammedanism. A majority of US Mohammedans believe that
Sharia Law, which has been called “completely incompatible with American Values,
should be the law of the land.
Trump is certainly bombastic. He’s a carnival barker, a narcissist, and a
whole host of other unsavory things. But between him and Larry Kudlow? Trump
is the one who is right.
