When I heard that President Trump mentioned Senator Chuck Schumer’s involvement in the diversity visa program that allowed yesterday’s terrorist to attack in Manhattan, I was pleased.
It’s about time Republicans fought back and Trump is showing the way. President G.W. Bush would never have mentioned it. The Dems would have pummeled him for the incident, but he would not have responded. We know how that lack of defense worked. We lost control of the House in 2006 and lost the presidency in 2008.
Trump refused to do the usual GOP thing. He didn’t tuck tail and hide. Not that there is anything to hide about. It’s just was Republicans do. It must have shocked Schumer. He has not had anyone fail to surrender before. Neither have the media. They can’t stand that this president points out the truth.
Then I came across a posting in WhiteHouseDossier, a conservative friendly site, for the most part. The blogger, Keith Koffler, wrote “Trump Should Wait Before Politicizing the Terrorist Attack.” He said
Trump expresses support for a merit-based immigration program. He may be right, but this is not the time to be creating a political issue out of the attack.
Republicans rightly criticize Democrats when they start making a political issue out of every tragic mass shooting while the bodies are still warm. Trump should be uniting the country instead of dividing it at a moment like this. And he especially should lay off the senator from New York, whose job it is to help with the healing from the worst terror attack in New York City since 9/11.
This “uniting instead of dividing” meme comes on like a rash that irritates unnecessarily. The irony of asking for unity when diversity spotlights only our differences is so discordant it knocks you down. E pluribus unum becomes, in Schumer’s America, “out of one, many.” I think we fought a Civil War to stop that.
It was disappointing to see Koffler feels this way.
His readers didn’t.
Here are their responses:
Why? The Dems politicize everything…even when there’s nothing to politicize. They call him a Nazi, his wife a whore, and his kid retarded. They wanted him impeached before he took the Oath of Office. And he’s been pushing his immigration plan and the Dems have mocked him, called him a racist and a bigot, and rejected it wholesale.
The Dems threw away all sense of common decency and decorum long ago…Trump bringing this up now is pretty mild by comparison.
Politicizing? the whole of legal and illegal immigration is political and who is it who refuses to admit that some people don’t belong in a country like ours?
As our President fights the Dems, fights the MSM, fights the courts, and even some of his own Repubs who refuse to limit legal immigration from Islamic countries until we’re sure they will live by USA law, not sharia law, he has my support to make it ALL political.
How many dead or maimed Americans will it take for everyone to admit that Islam is not compatible with our system or our values or our notions of good citizenship.
The Muslim who killed all those people, maimed a lot more, and caused a lot of people grief didn’t belong here. The religion he follows encourages true believers to kill those who are not like them, to foster terror and fear among the people in order to force them to join their religion/social order or whatever it is.
Let the President do his job the best way he knows how. If he blames the Dem Senator from NY then Schumer can defend himself. IF he can.
Democrat Policies kill people. Dems are Murderers !!! Want peace? never vote Demorat.
They hate this country and do all they can to destroy it with there BS feel good policy. Murder, Murder. Perverts like the Hollywood pedifile Libs.
I suppose then if my state legislator’s dog comes over and leaves a mess in my yard, and I call out this fact to the press and him, this would be politicizing? Just so happens the jerks that support and pass stupid legislation, are then criticized is politicizing? Bull! Whomever is at fault is open to be called out. Politics? Why is it politics? Seems to me a direct form of accountability.
What goes on in DC that makes so many of them succumb to the liberal fever? Glad we’re not there.
