Regarding the so-called, “Muslim ban:” The seven countries are Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia Sudan, Syria and Yemen. Let’s look at a couple of those counties’ demographics, eh?
Iraq (who we’re still fighting) has Muslims & Christians. Guess what? Those Christians are banned too. For all of 90 days.
Libya has Muslims, Christians, Buddhists, Jews, and Hindus. All of which are banned.
Hmm. Seems like it’s actually a national ban, not a religious ban, huh? Well, if you’re not convinced, let’s look at this graphic:
That looks like a hell of a lot more than seven nations. Weird, huh? So, if only seven nations are banned, doesn’t that mean President Trump’s ban is not a Muslim ban?
Not only that, but it’s based in large part on Obama’s previous stances. Don’t believe me? Read some yourself. Oh, and here’s an image of one of their press releases with the names of countries where travel to and from is limited and/or restricted:
Those country names look familiar? Not only did I make sure to leave the web address up for you to check for yourself, but if you click the image, it’ll take you right there, too. I don’t mind sourcing my claims.
What about Saudi Arabia? Well, ignoring the irony of folks saying banning travel from the above countries are a bad move, so why isn’t this country banned, too, let’s take a look at why it isn’t banned, shall we? I think it might have something to do with this little thing here.
Why isn’t Pakistan on the list? That’s an excellent question. I think it should be on the list just for harboring Bin Laden. Alas, I am not President. We’ll have to wait and see.
Now, I have a question for you, dear reader: If you’re so worried about the “helpless” Muslims that President Trump has barred from entering the U.S., where was this concern when President Obama, was dropping bombs on them by the thousands during the majority of his presidency?
