Really? Nixon on Syrian “Refugees”

Posted: November 17, 2015 in Uncategorized

Parsing poli-s[eak is like learning the language of Ingsoc…Orwellian “newspeak”. if you prefer. That’s what Governor Nixon’s official statement on bringing Syrian refugees into Missouri is like. …What?

Here it is for those who haven’t yet seen the “official response”:

“The safety of Missourians is my highest priority, and the terrorists who were involved in planning and perpetrating the attacks in Paris must be caught and brought to justice,” Governor Nixon said. “The screening process for refugees is the responsibility of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, and I call on our federal partners to implement the strongest possible safeguards to protect our state and nation.”

KY3 News asked the governor’s spokesperson to clarify his stance Monday afternoon.  The governor’s office said, “the statement speaks for itself.”

      I’m sure no one would say: “Welcome, Radicals!”, however, the problem is that no one admits if they are “radical”….Generally, I am completely tolerant, even though my own views are kind of “yes or no” on religion. I’m still not willing to destroy the freedom of religion that is dear to so many Americans. The error occurs when tolerance trumps intelligence. Sadly, this looks to be the reality now.
