Donald Trump’s executive order to ban Syrian refugees will create second thoughts in them.
Sadly, we are only a few days into Trump’s rule and already he is using tactics that may lead to defeat. What happened is he signed an executive order banning Syrian refugees from entering our country. The Donald is barring refugees because he thinks doing so will lead us to victory. However, this misses quite a few points about crushing a dire threat like ISIS in short order.
Who is ISIS?
The very first step to defeating an enemy is learning all one can about the enemy. Frankly, there is plenty to learn about ISIS and their motives. Basically, ISIS is a militia that is posing as a nation state. They are one of many groups who are in a theocratic wave, which I call Islamic Statism. Islamic Statists are muslims who wish to force all humans to abide by Sharia, and to kill anyone who rejects it. Elan Journo was asked on a podcast one time about how to know the Islamic Statist mindset. Generally, this means that most of the muslim refugees want to flee Islamic Statism. And so do all of the non-muslim refugees who are fleeing from Syria.
Why are the refugees fleeing to us?
Normally, foreign people flee to the United States to start better lives and to heal the wounds done to them by one Statism or another. Broadly speaking this is where the title ‘Land of Opportunity‘ dawns from. However, there is a big minority, maybe 20%, of refugees who come to force their kind of Statism onto us. Which is why we need to readopt the Ellis Island border law of the 1890’s to 1910’s, and apply it to all United States borders. Historically, this Ellis Island law was pass both a tough medical test and a tough criminal test then one’s a citizen. This Ellis Island law has been the best border control policy in US history. This is due to it being the most helpful to America concerning foreign refugees.
What’s the title about?
Many of the refugees escaping Islamic Statism I am sure would love to be able to get rid of it. Yes, even the muslim Syrian refugees, and especially the Non-religious refugees. Recruiting escapees from a tyranny to the cause of destroying that tyranny worked for us before. This was in the American Civil War, when many called to grow the pool of military volunteers to include blacks. Back then, putting black refugees in the US military was to tear down the Statism blacks were escaping from. And having blacks in the US military back then gave them an outlet to avenge their loved ones. The result of this and other factors was they got to take part in trashing the very same Statism they were once fleeing from. So what reality based incentive is there to forbid Syrian escapees from destroying that Islamic Statism they want nothing to do with?
