For anyone who missed the news, on Friday, a Somali born teenager tried to detonate, what he believed was a massive bomb, at a Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Portland, Oregon.
This story hits at so many levels. First, none of the media are talking about the obvious. He is a Muslim and shouted “Allah Akbar” when he was arrested. That part has been reported, yet no one will state the obvious. He did not pick just any event he wanted to bomb. This was a Christmas tree lighting ceremony. While those of us who were born and raised in this country understand these Christmas tree lightings are generally not religious events, I do not think he did. This appears to be not only an attempt to kill a lot of people, but attack a specifically Christian event.
Anyone remember the underwear bomber from last year? He tried to blow up a bomb in his underwear, on Christmas day. Does anyone really believe he picked that day randomly? No, the Islamists picked one of the holiest days in the Christian calendar to do this attack.
Second, why is this guy even in the country? The media has reported that he is a naturalized citizen, but why was he here to begin with? None of the media stories, nor any online sources explain how he ended up in the United States. This begs the question of our immigration system.
The tradition of immigration has been that people came to America to be Americans. In generations past, immigrants to America would not even let their kids speak their native languages at home, because they wanted to them to be Americans. Now, the government encourages and aids the lack of fluency in English. People can now live in this country for decades and not learn English.
One of the requirements almost every other country has, is if you want to emigrate to that country, is that the immigrant have skills that contribute to the new country and more importantly they want to become a part of their new country.
In America, just the opposite is true. Not only do we not close our borders, but also we make a special effort to bring people into this country who not only do not want to be Americans, but actually hate this country.
Last year, Congress, at the behest of the Obama regime appropriated over $20 million for the relocation of Hamas supporters from Palestine to America. Yes, that is Hamas, the terrorist group. We are importing Islamic terrorists to this country and paying them to come.
Does anyone else think this is a bad idea?
When conservatives take over the government in 2013, there will be so much to do. One of the most important things we must do is fix our insane immigration system. That includes, not only securing the border, but also changing the criteria by which people come to this country.
Immigration must be limited to those who want to be Americans and those who have skills that are needed by America. For years, liberals have used immigration to destabilize the country and create new liberal voting blocks. We have only a short time to turn this around before America goes the way of Europe.
