And you're actually the racist one, because the criminals are not all the same race, and I've never said they are.
So the hair you've decided to split here is whether you are being a racist or a bigot? You just... don't get it. I suppose this is the part where you tell us how you can magically "detect" the difference between Muslims and Arabs at your border and only let the "good ones" in.
I could pick out a few rules from the bible (or really just pick a religion) that you would have the same problems with but I don't hear you calling for anyone but Muslims to be banned from your country.
Every religion has stupid old hokey rules that are barbaric and barely anyone follows. The people that DO follow them are generally not the ones attempting to leave that society to find a better life.
That's a really simplistic view on a complicated issue. I suggest you might want to read the recent book by Maajid Nawaz and Sam Harris to educate yourself. For some reason the regressive leftists call Maajid Nawaz a racist and bigot too, even though he is both Pakistani and a Muslim.
EDIT: Again YOU are the one saying they are Arab and/or Muslim. Not me, I haven't even mentioned religion. You automatically associated all of the things I listed below to a race and religion. Not me.
And again you're saying that people of certain religions, race and nationality should get a free pass when it comes to basic human decency, which means your assuming that they are capable of less, and that's racist/bigoted.
Just for record, I would 100% support a system that swaps good & decent refugees and immigrants for local criminals and scum of any race, religion, and nationality even if they are christian, white and are 20th generation europeans. If they behave a certain way, they don't belong in modern society. Can you imagine how nice society would be? Of course people will now cry that it's inhuman to deport someone that is a citizen, human rights blah blah.The way I see it, if someone is chooses to violate your human rights, you can only assume they have given you permission to give up theirs. It's certainly better than a death sentence which already happens.
Then you get the people that say "who are you to judge, your not god blah blah"(of course an expert panel would be appointed for such a thing, a similar panel that judges who or who should not be executed).
Also, I'm not religious, but I am middle eastern, and my wife is asian.....
I'm going to spot replying, not because I think the argument is settled either way. But because I think we'll be going in circles, and the book I suggested will answer all of it for you in a much better way than I can. This comment was edited on Feb 28, 2016, 17:52.
