Germany's Guilty Conscience and Political Correctness

Why would a Western leader do such a stupid thing as to invite over 1 million refugees into their country without proper vetting? Of course, I'm referring to the decision of German Chancellor Angela Merkel, by inviting refugees from the war-torn Middle East into Germany, no questions asked. Could it be the case of German guilt from their past history during Adolph Hitler's time of murder and mayhem in the 1930's and the 1940's, trying to show the compassion of the “new” Germany? What else could it be, as the German's are not stupid people? Or are they?

Her decision not only affects Germany, but the European Union as a whole, as all borders, among the members, are open to other European Union members, including refugees. To say that this influx of refugees has caused much chaos and anti-social behavior, is not an over statement of fact.

This calamity was one of the reasons why the British electorate approved the “Brixit” vote, to rid itself of European Union membership, but it also had influence in the U.S. Presidential election, and the victory of Donald Trump as president.

Everyone should show compassion for refugees from war-torn ravaged areas of the world, but the big problem with the Muslim refugees, which make up over 90% of the refugees who have flooded Europe, is that they are not prone to accept the Western cultures and traditions, thereby causing much unrest and conflict, not only in Germany but in the rest of the European Union countries.

One of the principal policies that Donald Trump ran his campaign on was his desire to put a moratorium on accepting these refugees, from Middle East countries, into the U.S. without extreme vetting to weed out possible terrorists who would infiltrate among the legitimate refugees seeking asylum, which our lame duck president, Barack Hussein Obama, didn't seem to be too concerned with, as he has let thousands into our country over the past couple of years without proper vetting, contrary to what he claims.

The Middle East refugees, who have settled in Europe, have not assimilated very well in the Western way of life, and in many countries they have set up their own enclaves, some of which have instituted Muslim “Sharia Law”, which in their world, takes precedence over existing Western law. In many of these enclaves, the police have designated them “no go zones” whereby they don't go in for fear of repercussions and violence against the police. Already, we have witnessed the dire consequences of the “open border” policy of Germany and other countries, with acts of violence, rapes, and murder perpetrated by some of these Muslim refugees.

President Donald Trump has stated that he will not let our country be over run by opening up our borders without proper vetting, especially of the Muslim refugees. The “politically correct “ crowd has condemned President Trump for his desire to stop this influx of unvetted refugees. The words Islamophobe, racist, and bigot have been directed at President Trump by his detractors, but the vast majority of U.S. citizens are in favor of his hard-line stance.

Let's hope President Trump will follow through on his refugee policy so that we don't face the dilemma that now faces Germany and the rest of the European Union. San Bernardino and Orlando, in our country, should be a wake-up call for us to back President Trump, who is looking out for the safety of all of us.

If one person or a group of persons cannot assimilate in a society or commit to obeying the laws of a particular country, they should be denied entry, isn't that a no-brainer? And, the liberals condemn Trump for stating that position, how stupid they can they be? I guess we should have learned from the fact that the liberals supported a flawed, ethically challenged candidate in Hillary Clinton, that they would question a common sense approach like Trumps moratorium on Middle East refugees unless properly vetted.
