Now I do not endorse Donald Trump or any of the conservative candidates yet. I'm waiting for the primaries and dust to settle before going all in. However it is funny how liberals forget the past decisions of their Presidents.
The media had a meltdown trying to turn Donald Trump into a bigot, racist, and even Nazi because he said let us ban Muslim immigration. Leftist love to point fingers yet forget about their guys doing the exact same thing.
During the Iranian hostage crisis, Carter issued a number of orders to put pressure on Iran. Among these, Iranians were banned from entering the United States unless they oppose the Shiite Islamist regime or had a medical emergency.
Here’s Jimmy Carter saying it back in 1980.
"Fourth, the Secretary of Treasury [State] and the Attorney General will invalidate all visas issued to Iranian citizens for future entry into the United States, effective today.We will not reissue visas, nor will we issue new visas, except for compelling and proven humanitarian reasons or where the national interest of our own country requires. This directive will be interpreted very strictly." - President Carter
Apparently barring people from a terrorist country is not against “our values” after all. It may even be “who we are”. Either that or Carter was a racist monster just like Trump.
Obama paused Iraqi immigration too. How quickly the leftist media forgets.
Trump's comments are not controversial. His comments are what most Americans are wanting their current government to do. Radical Islam is a problem and will continue to be a problem until someone does something about the influx of Muslim refugees and immigrants coming into the United States. He never said kick the current Muslim citizens out, just stop letting more in. Commonsense policy to the current threats. The leftist media loves to lie and twist facts to brainwash the ignorant into emotional politics.
