There’s a lot of attention being drawn towards our porous southern border at this time. It’s beyond unconscionable that the progressive socialist left doesn’t realize the threat emanating from the inability of our country to protect its national sovereignty. Why? It’s not about the emotional tug of little kids being brought to America, illegally, by parents who came here illegally. There are those in “collusion” with the drug cartels seeking infiltration into our country. As well, we have the proliferation of a very dangerous domestic threat in criminal illegal immigrant gangs, such as MS-13.
I’ve stated this before, and will reiterate it here: one cannot lead a nation based on emotional statements such as “love.” A Constitutional Republic is governed based on an adherence to the rule of law, certainly applicable to our policies on immigration and naturalization.
However, what if we’re focusing all on the southern border but not realizing a growing threat from our northern border and neighbor, Canada?
As reported by the Gatestone Institute, “Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of Canada has an nine-year long record of supporting the Islamist cause while refusing to engage with reformist Muslims.
With respect to ISIS fighters returning to Canada, Trudeau has argued that they will be a “powerful voice for deradicalization” and that those who oppose their return are “Islamophobic.” Furthermore, the Government of Canada is not adding the names of returning ISIS fighters to the UN committee responsible for the listing of international jihadists.
Many Canadians (and others) are starting to believe that Prime Minister Trudeau’s position on reintegrating and deradicalizing ISIS fighters is unreasonable, if not delusional. Canada’s “Centre for Community Engagement and Deradicalization” has no leader and no deradicalization centre. Nor does it appear to have plans for a program which could operate inside or outside of government.
It is also not clear that the law of Canada could force a returning ISIS fighter to attend such a program, even if it did exist. In France, a similar government sponsored program was a failure. Canada also has an unclear position on the arrest of returning ISIS fighters, with few facing any consequences to date.
The number of ISIS fighters in Canada is unclear; estimates back in 2015 suggested that about 60 had returned. The Government of Canada has tried to claim that his number has not changed since 2015, despite the near total collapse of ISIS over the last several months.
Prime Minister Trudeau’s earlier comments on politicians needing a position of “responsible neutrality” on the issues of wife beating and female genital mutilation render his current positions on Islamist groups such as ISIS even more troublesome. Perhaps most disturbing were Trudeau’s comments to a gathering of Islamist front groups: he told them that he shared their beliefs, their set of values and their shared vision.
The degree to which Islamist extremism has spread in Canada can be demonstrated by the number of fighters who have travelled to ISIS. According to the Soufan Center, 180 Canadians went overseas to fight for “terrorist groups” (ISIS) in Iraq & Syria while only 129 Americans did the same.”
Well Justin, looks like you’re gonna be calling me an “Islamophobe” and I will refer to you as an “Islamapologist.” Here we are in America just getting rid of our own little progressive socialist Islamist sympathizer, and now we have one to our north. Both situations present a clear and present danger to these United States of America. And let’s NEVER forget that it was little Justin who awarded a multi-million-dollar pay out to a doggone Islamic jihadist who was guilty of killing a U.S. Army Special Forces Medic in Afghanistan.
Yeah, I’m thinking exactly what y’all are saying: utterly FUBAR. But, this is what liberal progressives are all about. Let’s show love to those who want to kill us and they’ll come around. As stated, “love” is not a policy, it’s an emotion, but my question is why don’t folks like Trudeau “love” his country, and the citizens he’s charged with protecting? Furthermore, why don’t Trudeau and those leftist Islamo-fascist sympathizers here in America focus on protecting us, and not their insidious ideological agenda?
In this era of #MeToo movement, isn’t it odd to see a liberal progressive leader embracing the horrific and abhorrent values and practices that brutalize women? Perplexing huh? Yeah, not baking a cake for a same-sex wedding is far more threatening and demonic.
But consider what is happening with ISIS in these present times. Yes, we have successfully reduced the territorial integrity of ISIS, but we have not defeated the Islamic State. It’s far more about a savage and barbaric ideological perspective than a dedicated land mass. And once that land mass has been eliminated, those fighters disperse, like the roaches they are.
Remember, we shared the story from the BBC detailing how ISIS fighters, to include foreign fighters, were transported out of Raqqa Syria, fully armed, and as of yet, I’ve heard no reports as to where they went. As matter of fact, I haven’t heard President Trump, nor his National Security Adviser, HR McMaster, explain to us who made that decision…or who knew of that decision?
Of course, the left’s typical response is and always will be, West you’re fearmongering, there’s no reason for concern. Hmm, and how many did it take to bring America to a standstill on 9-11? How many Americans were gunned down at the Pulse Night Club? How many jihadists did it take to massacre Americans in San Bernardino or at the finish line of the Boston Marathon? How many jihadists did it take to gun down our troops at Ft. Hood or in Chattanooga at the Naval Reserve Training Facility? How many did it take in London at the Ariana Grande concert, or Paris, Nice, Germany, Brussels? How many jihadists does it take to drive a vehicle into a crowd of people?
You see, the progressive socialist left loves to dismiss the problem with militant Islamic jihadism and try to turn the blame of their incompetence on those who do realize the problem. Yep, we’re crazy Islamophobes, a denigrating moniker created by an Islamic jihadist front group, the Council for American Islamic Relations…in essence, Hamas in America.
The left doesn’t want to do anything about the issue — after all, the future doesn’t belong to those who demean Muhammed, according to Barack Obama. And when there’s an Islamic jihadist attack, well, we shouldn’t rush to judgement. Nope, we should send billions of dollars to the number one sponsor of Islamic terrorism, Iran, as a symbol of our “love” — and doggone President Trump for continuing to certify the Iranian nuclear agreement.
Islamic jihadism is a dark threat to our future, our existence. And in these times, it is pure insanity not to secure our borders. Allowing jihadists into our respective countries is an example of mental instability, craziness…but ya don’t hear the liberal progressive media addressing that, do ya?
Justin Trudeau is proving himself to be another feckless weakling, and just think, some leftist magazine had a cover photo of him asking why he couldn’t be our president.
Two words: “hell no”!
