See the transparent hypocrisy everywhere else. My latest in PJ Media:
President Trump’s executive orders to build a Mexican border wall and to place a temporary ban on immigration from seven hotbeds of jihad terror have the national and international Left — and its jihadi allies — in an uproar.
How dare he move to protect American citizens?
French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault said, during a meeting with German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel, that both countries were “concerned” about Trump’s immigration policies:
Welcoming refugees who are fleeing war is part of our duty … his decision can only cause us concern.
A “duty”? According to whom? Wasn’t protecting Ayrault’s own citizens from jihad terrorists known to be entering France among the “refugees” his duty? All of the jihadiswho murdered 130 people in Paris in November 2015 had just entered Europe as refugees.
France apparently found jihad less distasteful than vetting refugees; France now has the option it chose.
Mayor Michael Müller of Berlin pontificated:
We Berliners know better than most the pain caused when a whole continent is split by barbed wire and walls. … I call on the president of the USA not to go down that road to isolation and ostracism.
Müller’s statement has been widely circulated and greeted with joy — among the clueless Left, which is acting as if it opposed the Berlin Wall when it was up. They did not.
Ronald Reagan declared: “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!”, and they recoiled in horror.
