"But there is nothing like Islam at this momeny for generating this kind of intelorance and chaos.And if only a right wing demagogue will speak honestly about it, then we will elect right-wing demagogues in the west more and more in response to it. And that will be the price of political correctness. That is when this check will finally get cashed. That will be the consquence of this persistant failure we see among liberals, to speak and think and act with real moral clarity and courage on this issue"
"The way these events[terrorist attacks] have kindled xenophobia and racism has been totally unsurprising, and this transformation of our country is unfolding with each new cycle."
"What were getting from the left is just sanctiomony and charges of bigotry against people who are not bigots, who are anything but bigots. And I am not talking about trump. I am talking about the millions of epople who may be tempted to vote for him, because their common sense is being demonized and defied at every turn on this issue...;.it leaves these people with nowhere to turn besides the right-wing party"
Though, its the job of the president to be a peace-maker, and its probably not the best idea to stoke religios passions against moderates. So sure, I agree with the current presidents verbal approach of not mentioning islam well enough, (in this link*, and in basic history textbooks, there are clearly no lack of right-wing psychoes willing to do the exact same thing to people of islamic origin, more or less making it inhumane to those in the country already)
but what does it say about immigration policy? A need for caution, I would say. Don't take it from me or Harris, take it from Lee Quan Yew, former prime minister of Singapore who managed to bring a society that people would thought falter due to ethnic tensions and made it the best country in the world on numerous measures of safety and prosperity!
"“I think we were progressing very nicely until the surge of Islam came, and if you asked me for my observations, the other communities have easier integration - friends, intermarriages and so on, Indians with Chinese, Chinese with Indians - than Muslims. That’s the result of the surge from the Arab states."
"He also said: “I think the Muslims socially do not cause any trouble, but they are distinct and separate.”"
a--Not surprising for a religion that stones to death from a Fatwas on those who leave and speak out against it!
4th lowest murder rate, 6th richest country per capita, third best in education! If you average out everything, seems to rank #1 overall.
