I made this a new topic since it doesn’t have anything to do with TAL’s situation… But I couldn’t let this shit just slide…
“To try to ban free travel for all 1.5 Bn. Muslims in the world…”
The 6 countries in the revised travel ban have a combined population of 180 to 200 million… That’s you trying to parrot the left wing talking point that it was a “Muslim ban”. What it is, is a “War torn countries with unstable and chaotic situations that we can’t verify who is who ban”. Additionally, the ban doesn’t ‘ban free travel’ as you state… It bans travel to the US. Nobody has a RIGHT to come to the US except US citizens.
“It is still a dangerous number of individuals, but far from a majority.”
I’m happy to see you’re willing to acknowledge the fact that it is a dangerous number of individuals. That separates you from many of your left wing, globalist brethren. And because of this FACT, that is enough for the commander in chief to initiate action to protect his citizens.
“why should the rest of the world not ban all Americans from entering their countries in fear of the few that is able and willing to take extreme action for their believes?”
Any country is well within their right to do so. The fact that none have illustrates that governments of the world are not as worried about US based right wing beliefs as you are. When a right wing extremist highjacks a plane and flies it into a mosque in Kuala Lumpur, then we can revisit this.
“Even Mariners here have expressed the view that all foreign seafarers should be banned from shore leave in US Ports…”
I don’t recall anyone saying this. Yet another false equivalency… What been said is that MLC 2006 won’t pass here because it would allow visa free access to US ports by visiting mariners who have not been through any vetting process to verify who they are.
And by the way, how’s the Muslim refugee settlement situation going in Norway? I had a tough time finding any articles where Norwegians were saying how great it is to have their new neighbors from the Middle East…perhaps you have some links but to the contrary? Very easy for you to spout your holier than thou rhetoric from your place in Singapore with it’s Uber tight immigration laws.
