Daily Kos: Let’s “scoop up” 2 million Syrians, bring them to America and teach them stuff

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 7, 2015

Let’s start out Monday morning with a chuckle.  This is “Liberal Thinking” at the far Left Daily Kos.

“Liberal” doesn’t think we are too bright, but he/she demonstrates a woeful lack of understanding about how the federal Refugee Admissions Program works, how our federal government is structured, what are the factions in the Syrian civil war; and “Liberal” has forgotten that it is their guy—Barack Hussein Obama—who is commander in chief.

The war “Liberal” says Republicans don’t know how to win is OBAMA’S WAR.

In this Dec. 3, 20156 photo, President Barack Obama sits with FBI director James Comey in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington, before making a statement on the mass shooting in San Bernandino, Calif. The U.S. government’s ability to review and analyze five years’ worth of telephone records for the married couple blamed in the deadly shootings in California lapsed when the National Security Agency’s controversial mass surveillance program was formally shut down, four days before the deadly California shootings. Under a court order, those historical calling records at the NSA are now off-limits to agents running the FBI terrorism investigation even with a warrant. (AP Photo/Evan Vucci)

Hey, “Liberal Thinking,” do you see that skinny guy on the left? That is your guy. He is a Democrat.  As commander in chief, this is his war which entered a “new phase” last week as the enemy is now among us and has begun to kill us. FBI director Comey (the grown-up on the right) has just told Obama the cold hard truth. (AP Photo/Evan Vucci)

A must read so you have some understanding of what the kids at Kos are thinking.

From “Liberal Thinking” at the Daily Kos (Emphasis is theirs):

Republican leaders are some of the least humanitarian and cruelest people in the country. But I’ve come to believe they are also some of the thickest. You can see this in the strategic implications of keeping Syrian refugees out of the country.

The refugees are people who’ve been abused by the Syrian government (Asad famously gassed them) and driven away by ISIS and other rebel groups. They are already predisposed to hate those people. Our best strategy would be to scoop up every one we can persuade to come to the U.S. and give them a place to sit out the war. The war will end and eventually they will go back. We have an enormous opportunity to affect Syrian society after they return.

So, it isn’t just humanitarian to accept the refugees. It’s also smart national security policy.
There are perhaps two million refugees we could bring to the United States. This is possibly 20% of the Syrian population. What will these people believe when they return to Syria?

We could spend a moderate amount of effort teaching them how to run a secular society. We should help them learn how we view human rights and due process. We should help them set up public institutions they can take back with them. [And, the kids at Kos are going to teach Sunni Muslims this?—ed]

There are more suggestions of things we could teach them, including how to cope with global warming.  Then “Liberal” wraps up with this:

But unfortunately much of our federal government is run by Republicans, who don’t know very much about how to run a government. As I’ve said before, Republicans don’t know money. (They want to privatize Social Security, for example. And they are still promoting trickle-down economics, even after it’s been show to be an abject failure.) But it’s deeper and more disturbing than that. They don’t even know how to win a war.

Vote in the poll!

Now, I want you to go visit the story and vote in the poll at the end!  For a blog getting (so they say) hundreds of thousands of hits a day, only 23 have voted so far (as of this writing).  Should we bring in all the Syrians who want to come? Surprise! The choice “no, they are too dangerous” is winning by a wide margin.

Action Alert:  Call your members of the House and Senate at 202-224-3121 and ask them to vigorously oppose the Refugee Resettlement funding contained in the Omnibus Spending Bill that will be voted on by 12-11-15!  Don’t stop calling  (we will keep you posted as we learn more about when the vote might occur).

    There were only about 16-17 million people in Syria to begin with? So 2 million here, 2 million there, a million flooding into Germany, etc. etc.

    Is anybody left there at all?

    I used to read Kos as part of my rounds to get both sides of the story, but when Obama showed up on the scene, they went so far off the rails, they left the known universe. They’re so predictable now, it’s a waste of time to even consider them as a “side to the story” anymore. I see they’ve not changed any over the refugee issue and experience has yet to enlighten them. I’m not surprised. To their way of thinking it’s always America’s fault and everyone who doesn’t agree with them is evil and stupid.

    Daily Kos and its followers are exactly the type of “useful idiot” I posted about the other day. They don’t have a clue, don’t know they don’t have a clue, aren’t interested in knowing they don’t have clue, take great pride in the superiority of not having clue and would rather have their fingernails pulled out while watching their “precious” (iphones) crushed into a million tiny pieces than actually do the legitimate research necessary to figure out clues. Why bother when you have Media Matters and a sundry of social psychologists employed by the WH, other leftist narrative shapers and think tanks to do your thinking for you? These narrative shapers, unfortunately for them, manipulate them far more than anyone else.

    I’m reminded of the university studies (I think one may have been the University of Maryland) that came out during the Obamacare debate that claimed their polling of people and where they got their news demonstrated that people who watched Fox News were uninformed about a list of things, like not being able to keep your insurance or doctor, “death” panels, increased costs, etc. that…drum roll…all turned out to be true. When the “studies” came out, progressives were beside themselves with vindication of their brilliance, the evils of conservatives and the lies of Fox News, but now…crickets or they spout a new set of narratives to push single payer, because Obamacare’s failures were due to the evil and stupid Republicans, despite no input or support from Republicans in the crafting, passing or administration of the law.

    At any rate, to the Daily Kossars, wishful thinking, demonizing “the other” and longing for the good old days of feudal rule is human progress. Sadly, they have yet to fire a couple of neurons to figure out that “progress” extends only so far as the other guy (in this case Islam) is willing to go before he decides he will apply his definition of “progress.”

  7. Liberals are the spoiled kids whose parents never told them “no”. And many of them believe this garbage, while others just repeat it to achieve some other agenda
