What is it with liberals wanting to bring terrorists to the United States?
First we saw President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder announce that
they’d like to transfer Guantanamo Bay detainees to U.S. soil to stand trial
in civilian courts. When the American people and most members of his own
party went bananas and NIMBY on him, Obama pulled back on the asinine plan.
But it prompted an obvious question: with Islamic terrorists desperately
trying to get INTO the United States, why would we CHOOSE to invite them in?
Today, we get this nugget from the New York Times, in a piece called
“California: Trying to Open A Door To Detainees:”
“Berkeley officials are considering inviting Guantánamo Bay detainees to
live in the city. The City Council is scheduled to vote next week on a
resolution that would extend an invitation to any detainees at the United
States naval base in Cuba who have been cleared of wrongdoing. The city is
eyeing two detainees: Djamel Ameziane, an Algerian chef, and Ravil Mingazov,
a Russian ballet dancer. “This is one thing we can do to right some wrongs
of our federal government,” said Wendy Kenin, chairwoman of the city’s Peace
and Justice Commission, which drew up the resolution. The detainees would
live with local families, and nonprofits would help them find work. Amherst,
Mass., approved a similar resolution in 2009 that invited two detainees,
including Mr. Mingazov, to live there, but they were not released. Phil
Kamlarz, the city manager, is advising the Council not to act on Guantánamo
Gotta love that Peace and Justice Commission. Also note that that other
hotbed of progressive nuttiness, Amherst, Massachusetts, wants to welcome
terrorists to their ‘hood.
There is an easy, although disturbing, reason for this: many members of the
American Far-Left and Islamic terrorists share a hatred of the United
States. Their anti-Americanism springs from different sources, but their
objective is the same: to take down this country. Glenn Beck has been
covering this connection all week on his critically important Fox News show.
Andrew McCarthy has written extensively about this in his critically
important book, “The Grand Jihad.”
The American Far-Left and Islamists share a fundamental philosophy. They
are in bed together. The next question is: what will they spawn?
