Apparently banning people of a specific religion (or for any other distinctive quality, good or bad) is not American.
Who says this?
The very same people who constantly tell us that America has a history of Institutionalized discrimination.
That’s right. The very same people who inform us that America was founded on slavery, colonialism and racial/ethnic/gender oppression and that America is still ensconced in institutional discrimination of every kind, are also telling us that America was founded on openness and tolerance of all peoples and beliefs and that discriminating against Muslim refugees “ain’t who we be”.
And that is the great thing about being a progressive; you do indeed get to have your cake and eat it too, and then say that there never was a cake, but that we should divide it equally –but more equally to non-White races, even though there is no such thing as race, yet there is because “racism” and straight on ‘til morning!
