Not yet, but it is getting there! I just returned from the dentist and am blown away by the media discussion of refugees in the few hours I was away (and it sure isn’t warm and fuzzy World Refugee Day news either).
Frankly, I never thought I would see the day when the ‘R’ word would be so often repeated throughout the media.
I once heard someone say that in social science there is a proper term for the phenomenon when a level of consciousness is reached across a wide swath of the American political landscape. I don’t remember what that term was….
So the closest I can come is to say that we are reaching critical mass (a term from physics that is now used for just about anything!).
First, as I walked into my home and flipped the radio dial to Rush Limbaugh (at the same time inspecting the choices in the frig) I heard Rush talking about Michael Patrick Leahy’s story from Monday about the six diseases now making a comeback thanks to the immigrant/refugee flood into America. Wow!
And, then that disgusting issue that officials in Twin Falls, Idaho were trying to keep under wraps is all over the media both last night and today. Even Fox News reported it, here.
RRW’s facebook page, here, was through the roof with people sharing the story.
There is more….
Here is Trump in his speech today saying we could rebuild America’s inner cities with the money Hillary want to spend on refugees.
And, here he says Hillary wants migrants admitted to the US from countries that persecute gays and mistreat women.
Female Genital mutilation is on the rise among immigrant communities in the US (linked at Drudge).
CAIR says that voter registration among US Muslims is up by 300,000 over 2012.
Anatomy of the US terror threat (including from some refugees) is at Fox today.
And, 48% of respondents in a recent poll agree with Trump’s ban on Muslim migrants entering US.
Then there is the fact that Muslim immigration is at the heart of the Brexit battle to be decided in the UK, here tomorrow.
I’m sure there is much more, that’s just a few stories that jumped out at me over a few minutes of checking the news this afternoon!
Do you have some I missed?
So could we be reaching critical mass to bring the change needed to roll back this monstrosity. Yes, I believe we are moving in that direction. Time will tell if we are moving fast enough.
