Syria's huddled masses

Yearning to breathe free or yearning to breathe sharia?

Regardless, the Obama administration has fast-tracked some 10,000 Syrian refugees into the United States.

Or rather, 10,000 more.

Those that are already here will be permitted to stay and apply for benefits that normally go to actual citizens. Same deal for newer arrivals.

Not all are Syrian, the number includes Afghans and Somalis, among others, but most are men, men without women, between the ages of 18 and 45.

Liberals call it a humanitarian gesture. Trump and other conservatives call it “a great Trojan Horse.”

“We don’t know who they are,” says Trump.

No, we don’t.

Our culture of mom, baseball and apple pie is teetering under the hijab. Entire neighborhoods are being bought up with Saudi money.

“We don’t know their intentions.”

True. However, we do know that over the years Syria was never a friend of Israel or of the United States. We know that when it was time to chant “Death to Israel” and when it was time to burn the American flag, Syrians were among the first to join the performance.

There is no doubt that eventually they will be given a path to citizenship, which means a path to vote.

We stupid Americans get what we deserve.

Long ago, foreigners did not feel "welcome" to come into our small towns and make a go of it. They did not feel "safe" to do it. Now they do. We are all so busy having sex with other men, and watching television all day that now anybody with 2 legs can come here, take our women, and eat our lunches.

We deserve to be 3rd class as a nation. We are truly pathetic.
