Comments on: Is political correctness over ‘refugees’ putting lives in danger? http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2015/11/26/is-political-correctness-over-refugees-putting-lives-in-danger/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: sguykayak http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2015/11/26/is-political-correctness-over-refugees-putting-lives-in-danger/#comment-1121716 Thu, 03 Dec 2015 02:02:11 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=45051#comment-1121716 Since when did my beloved state of Texas become the ‘hate state’ full of scared and weak people? In the military, I saw firsthand the plight of war refugees and we’ve learned from Vietnam & Korea that refugees can assimilate into American culture and make us a much more productive nation. If we have any hope whatsoever of competing economically with China, whose workforce is over 5 times bigger than ours, we’ll need to rethink immigration or else we’ll end up like Japan.

By home-grown Americans…. against Americans. Refugees are the least of our problems. 30,000 people a year dying from guns here. This does not happen ANY other place in the developed world.

In the “World” section on Reuters tonight, Ben Rhodes reported more Russian targeting of the Islamic State yet the reporter stated, “at least as of a week ago, there has been little change in Moscow’s practice of targeting non-Islamic State areas in Syria.”

Countless lives depend on an administration that is grounded in reality, not wishful thinking. Their neurotic denial is a disgrace to our country and the Office of the President.

The refugee crisis is a predictable outcome of republican stupidity and ignorance. That and the 4,500 American soldiers they killed, just to give ISIS a new home.

GOP won’t seat another President for 30 years. They are incompetent at world affairs, and pretty much anything beyond Pyramid history. Oh yeah, they suck at that too :)

Kuwait govt requested assistance to defend against Iraqi invasion from the UN hence US, UK, etc were involved with the war. The egg was broken because Iraq invaded Kuwait and bombed their oil fields.

Those were a handful of incidents and the majority didn’t get over a dozen kills.”

Of course they are. Every single day. Pick up a newspaper.

Sometimes people dont deserve the benefit of the doubt. A jerk is a jerk and I should be allowed to call them that to their face without being “labeled” as an “anti” ( insert race, religion, gender here).
And using the “politcally correct” mallet to crush any dissenting opinions about race, religion, gender is the beginning of the end of free speech and democracy.
I’d rather drink a beer and argue with 10 politically incorrect people at a table than with one smug pc indoctrinated self rightous arrogant twerp that tosses out buzzwords like “empowerment” , “micro agression “, “wholistic”, “segway”, and on and on and on until I have a migraine. They dont argue the point being discussed. They just argue that your not “pc” because you disagree with them. Pretty lazy way to “discuss” an issue.
Time to tell your professors that there is a big , ugly , non pc world out there that doesnt care about hurting your feelings or, for that matter, hurting YOU.
And I’m sure that some of the people about to be decapitated by some illiterate ISIS savage werent argueing whether the sword swinging lunatic felt “empowered” at that particular moment in time.

And judging from some of the comments……..I’d say pc indoctrination has just about had its day, thankfully.

Schizophrenic Republican politicians have instilled and promulgated such abject fear in the American public’s consciousness regarding the Syrian refugees that the very fabric of American culture has been torn asunder in cowardliness sinking America deep into self-imposed danger and destruction.
